Gatewood Hall Is Moving To The Old Post Office!

Yes it's true! We are finally happy to announce that we are moving and expanding with more of what you love! (We actually signed the lease this time before making our announcement!) We are taking the old Blue Ridge Post Office on Depot Street, just next to the Blue Ridge Brewery. We are so excited as we will have nearly three times the square footage! We have a huge, private parking lot for our guests, no stairs for you to climb and an actual covered loading dock for our furniture (oh the simple pleasures)!!
We are already getting lots of questions like, "Will your new store have a post office theme?" or "How will you decorate around the post office boxes?"...and several folks have made the comment "Will it be the same look as your store now?" So here are the answers to those burning questions...No post office theme, no decorating around the PO boxes (they took those with them). Finally, while we have loved the space we are in now, and we are so proud that we originated our "setting or stage" in Blue Ridge it is no longer original because others have tried to recreate it. So- while we promise that we will not change our overall business model, we will maintain our desire for unique and special merchandise, and we will not get rid of any of our exclusive brands that you love. We will remain constant to our passion for gracious living and helping you create the lifestyle that reflects who you are by staying beyond "the trendy"...With that said we do have some exciting changes in store and the "look of our stage" will not be the same...it will be better! Most importantly we will strive to be original, and always bring you an exceptional shopping experience.
WE LOVE WHAT WE DO! Every day we feel so very fortunate that we get to run our little business, do what we do, and be able to share it with you! Thank you for helping make our dream a reality.


We'll keep you posted on our progress! We are thinking that it will be early 2010 when we open our new location. Go over and take a peak inside before we cover up the windows and get to work setting the stage of our new destination! (Hey and say a little prayer that Shawn and I don't drive each other crazy in the process!!)

We Appreciate You! Thank You for Supporting Us!


The 3/50 Project is one that we have supported for awhile now. Many of you have heard about it and discussed it with Shawn and I. For those of you who haven't please take a few minutes to read the press release below about the project's founder Cinda Baxter. One of my best friends Stan, in North Carolina sent this to me and suggested that I share it with you (by the way he is is not a retailer just a supporter of small businesses.)
We thought it was an appropriate time to say THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR SUPPORTING US! If we don't say it enough we really appreciate your business. We know that you could make your purchases at some large chain store or "back home" where some of you maintain a primary residence but instead, you wait and shop with us in downtown Blue Ridge and for that we THANK YOU! We are so passionate about what we do and we realize that without you we wouldn't have the opportunity to do it. We are excited about our future and our goal is to continue to bring you wonderful and unusual new merchandise while providing the best service possible...All while having great fun with you- our customers, our friends! Thanks for helping us to live our dream.




Former Retailer Provides Her Own Economic Stimulus Plan for Main Street


The 3/50 Project unites small business and consumers in stabilizing their local economy Minneapolis, MN, March 19, 2009 — Having been an independent stationery store owner for fourteen years, Cinda Baxter understood the pain felt by retailers when the economy sank and consumers held back. What began as an economic downturn in the autumn had become a psychological tsunami by March 1st.


What the country needed, in her opinion, was a meeting of the minds between two groups that held valuable stakes in the game—small business owners and members of their communities. Enter The 3/50 Project. With a tag line “Save your local economy three stores at a time,” the Project’s goal is to promote shopping in locally owned businesses while thanking customers for the positive impact that decision has on a local economy.


“We’re constantly inundated with doom and gloom,” says Baxter, now a retail consultant and professional speaker. “The system is broken, the banks are frozen, the economy is bleeding. That’s all we hear. The images painted by the media are ghastly and devoid of hope. What we need—what we crave—as a nation is to pinpoint areas where positive change can occur, then feel good about having promoted them.”


By early March, she’d decided enough was enough, and that it was time to give retailers ammunition to fight back with. Rather than get tangled in complex messaging and deployment, Baxter combined a straightforward theme, a free flyer, and her blog as the mechanism to launch The 3/50 Project.


“We ask consumers to think about which three stores they’d miss if they disappeared, then remind them to return there,” explains Baxter. “Shoppers have become so rooted in thinking about the essentials that they’ve forgotten about the little gift store on the corner whose owner remembers their name.”


“Fifty comes from the idea that if even half the employed population spent a mere $50 per month in locally owned retail stores, those purchases would generate more than $42.6 billion in revenue,” she continues. “That’s a huge impact for a relatively small investment.” Which leads to a third number on the flyer, sixty-eight—the dollar amount that remains in a community’s economy for every $100 spent in locally owned stores. By contrast, only $43 per one hundred remains local when spent in national chains; little or no revenue results from online purchases.


“In essence, the whole thing boils down to Pick 3, spend 50, save the economy. It’s really that simple.”


Since ease of use was key to store owners jumping on board, Baxter designed a free flyer for participants to download, print on any color printer, then hand to consumers with their purchases. “The idea is to look customers in the eye, put this right in their hands, and say ╩╗thank you for shopping in a locally owned store╩╝ rather than just pop these in the bottom of a bag and hope someone sees them.”

Within 24 hours of providing the link on her blog, things began to light up. Retailers were sharing the flyer with other businesses. Property managers were spreading the news to tenants. Thank you notes were arriving via email every hour. Trade publications and blogs were asking about guest posts and columns promoting the plan, and a movie theater requested a copy large enough to display on their screens for waiting audiences to view. “The best part about 3/50 is that it’s so down to earth, so straightforward, so accessible,” reflects the enthusiastic champion of independent retailers. “This is a labor of love that store owners and customers can share.”


Given the level of interest, a dedicated website has been established to promote the movement, link to the free flyer, and list participating retailers and other supporters. It can be found at http://the350project.net/.

Thank You Fannin Chamber Guests!

Thank you so much to all of the Fannin County Chamber members who attended our business after hours tonight. We are so thrilled at the huge turnout (we were told by a few folks that this was one of the largest turn-outs this year!!). It was our pleasure to be the host. And we met some of the nicest new members.
Special thanks to Sarah Auman owner of the most fabulous "Out of the Blue" shop for helping us out with the wine tasting! As always Sarah helps to choose the best wines! (Go see her or click on the link under friends and neighbors). I also want to thank Kathy and Linda from L&L Beanery and Cafe who catered our event. As always the food was wonderful, I especially loved the bacon wrapped shrimp as well as the hummus & feta bruschetta! (oh who am I kidding I loved it all and the desserts were awesome too!) Some more special thanks to Kelli and Rebecca our GH Gals who worked diligently to help us get ready for our gathering. They had to make all of the "GH Swag Bags" that we gave to our guests as well as our gift baskets for the door prize drawings. Speaking of...congrats to all of our winners especially Kitty a loyal GH fan who won the fifty dollar GH Gift certificate prize! Enjoy your goodies everyone.
Last but not least a HUGE THANK YOU to Jan Hackett and the rest of the Fannin County Chamber team for letting us host this fun event. We appreciate your tireless efforts and all of the hard work you do to promote our beloved county and town!

Blue Ridge Brewery Open

Just in case you haven't heard? There is a new restaurant in town, Blue Ridge Brewery is now open! Unfortunately, I haven't had the opportunity to enjoy a meal there but Shawn has and he raved about it. One of our favorite chefs, Rick Tullis brings his expertise and I hear he has put together a fantastic menu. BRB is open for lunch and they offer soups, sausages, hot sandwiches, salads and small plates. I hear the house burger is delicious! In the evening dinner at the brewery offers seasonal soups and salads, as well as steaks, prosciutto wrapped trout, wiener schnitzel, roasted chicken, pan seared duck breast, and even some vegetarian dishes. Top off your great meal with an assortment of American and European desserts.

I was working in the store this weekend and several of our friends and customers had been to BRB and every single one of them said really, really great things! I just can't wait to go! The enthusiasm was unbelievable. Oh, and word has it that the owner Pat has selected some great and exclusive beers if you are so inclined! (Isn't that exciting? Right here in Blue Ridge, Georgia)

Blue Ridge Brewery is located at 187 Depot Street (former home of Blue Christmas). They are closed on Sunday and Monday. I hear it is best to make reservations so give them a call at 706-632-6611 and be sure to tell them that we sent you!

Silver Seasons Jewlery Exclusively at Gatewood Hall

We are so proud to be the exclusive dealer in Blue Ridge, Georgia selling the jewelry that Michael Michaud designs for Silver Seasons.
Michael Michaud was born in Cleveland, Ohio and raised in Westport, Connecticut. He currently resides in Fairfield, Connecticut with his wife Tricia and their three children Nicole, Shane and Michael. Silver Seasons is the combination of Michael's exceptional knowledge of jewelry making and his love of nature. Starting as an apprentice mold cutter in 1973, Michael soon became a master precious metal caster and mold maker.
In 1976, seeking even more knowledge, Michael moved on to Rochester Institute of Technology's prestigious School for American Craftsmen. While studying under esteemed designers Hans Christenson and Gary Griffin, he mastered many of the techniques he uses today to capture the beauty and exquisite detail of nature in metal. After graduation in 1980, Michael returned to the jewelry manufacturing community and worked for some of America's leading jewelry designers.
In 1991, lucky enough to be living in the Connecticut countryside and working near New York City's flower district, Michael's love of nature began to combine with his love of jewelry. He began experimenting with the techniques that eventually launched the Silver Seasons collection in 1992.
Silver Seasons jewelry is made using the lost wax casting method. Michael has perfected the technique of creating models from natural elements. After models are made, Michael manipulates these "copies of nature" into beautiful jewelry. Using bronze, sterling silver or gold and natural stones and pearls Michael's designs have become well known for their remarkable craftsmanship and beauty

Michael Michaud's Bittersweet Branch Pin is rendered in hand patinaed bronze with red sponge coral. This Bittersweet Branch Pin measures 2 1/4" wide and 1 1/2" in from top to bottom. Also available in the Bittersweet collection is the Bittersweet Earrings, and Bittersweet Necklace. Perfect for this time of year!!

Michael Michaud’s Charms Gingko Leaf wire drop earrings pictured below are rendered in Bronze.

The wire drop Pea Pod Earrings are shown here in bronze with white pearls

The Kyoto Maple Single Drop Earrings are created in Bronze with a beautiful gold plate and red variegated leaf coating. These Kyoto Maple Drop Earrings measures 5/8" wide and 1" long. Also available in Michael's Kyoto Maple design are the Kyoto Maple Pin, Kyoto Maple Necklace and the Kyoto Maple pendant

We absloutely love Michael Michaud’s Blueberry pin shown below. The Blueberry pin is rendered in Bronze and is accented with Blue Sponge Coral Blueberries. Also available in this collection are the Blueberry necklace, the single Blueberry earrings, and the cluster Blueberry earrings.

Come in this weekend and check out these beautiful, nature inspired works of art!! See you soon!

Holiday Votivo Candles Have Arrived

The new holiday Votivo candles have arrived and they are dressed up for the holidays. The beautiful 6.1 oz candles are natural soy-blend and will burn approximately 50 hours. Each candle is in a hand blown silver-toned glass container that is hand wrapped and elegantly boxed making them the a perfect gift. The fragrances are amazing...

Clementine & Clove An ode to a bygone era- coarsely chopped clove with fresh cinnamon sticks and dashes of black peppered nutmeg gently coat the dried Clementine oranges and fresh thyme sprigs, all wrapped to the tune of an old Christmas carol—a perfect symphony of the senses.
Christmas Sage Freshly harvested juniper berries, tangy hemlock cones, and fragrant emerald hued spruce boughs transform the rustic cabin into a light filled workshop where dreams are crafted with pride and hope fills the heart eternal with gifts that truly linger...and inspire memories for generations to come.

Joie De Noel In a centuries old tradition, darkened hearty cut spices, woody strands of aged rosemary, fragrant spruce and delicate hemlock boughs are mulled with caravan herbs and thickened honey combs in a blackened copper kettle over an open cherry wood flame: an unspoken welcome home anytime throughout the year.

Red Currant An all time best seller this scent is a savory blend of tart red currants and golden fruit glaze ladled over coarsely ground vanilla bean ice cream and served along side of raspberry filled sugar cookies… the original Red Currant.
Come in an check out these delightful new fragrances!!

We have proudly carried the Natural Life line for a few years and we absolutely love it! Patti Hughes the creator tells the story of getting started in her business as a person who loved to make special gifts for people.

Three decades later, in 1996 Patti turned this passion into her own gift business. Today her products are turning heads across the country because of their unique, trend-setting and hand made quality. Along with heartfelt sentiments and affordable prices they truly do make the perfect gift.

The pillows have several wonderful thoughts and there is one for nearly everyone!!

The Natural Life Baby items make great shower gifts. The detail that goes into everything from the packaging to the final garment is amazing. We carry several different "onesies" and bibs. The little photo brag books are great for grandmothers!

Patti's philosophy is that gifts that come from the heart allow you to naturally give, love and laugh. Our hope is that you too will love to give and receive Natural Life products.

Gatewood Hall and Blue Ridge, GA Featured in National Magazine

Some of you may remember that this time last year we had the folks from Southern Lady Magazine in our store taking photos and writing an article about Blue Ridge, Georgia...we are happy to say that we are in this months edition. They did a wonderful job introducing our town to the rest of the world. They visited our store along with a few others, they mentioned some of our great restaurants and of course our scenic railway. In another article they featured Mercier Orchards with some excellent photos. In our favorite article they feature some of our favorite customers and friends from Fair Hope, Alabama. They show Anita, Clay, Delana and Charlene enjoying the beautiful North Georgia fall beside a river near their cabins.

In yet another article they show a gorgeous Autumnal tablescape in Anita's cabin and they featured our pewter acorn stemware as well as our bear salt and pepper sets. It has been so fun to receive calls from around the country requesting info about our store or wanting to purchase these items!

In the photo above they show a very cozy shot of our Pine Cone Hill display bed dressed in the Riona quilt.

This issue of Southern Lady is really a keeper, it has some outstanding photos of our special corner of the world...and some delicious recipes. (Anita and Charlene said the S'mores on the cover are to die for...homemade marshmallows, who knew!!) Anyway pick up a copy, grab a cup of tea and enjoy!

Happy Labor Day! Come in and see us this weekend, we have some new arrivals, and some great specials!

Fezziwig's Opens This Week

We are so happy to announce that our friends Bradley & Candel (of Otis & Matilda's Marina Grill) are opening their new holiday store this week in downtown Blue Ridge. Their new venture is called Fezziwig's and it is an extravaganza for all seasons! We have had a sneak peak and the store is like a winter wonderland. They have created some of the most beautiful Christmas trees, with some of the most unique ornaments around. Just step inside their shop and you feel transported into another time, it is so cozy and the lighting is so dramatic you feel like you are walking through a Christmas tree farm.
Fezziwig's will offer various seasonal collectibles including Halloween and Easter items. Some of the exclusive lines they have are Department 56, Christopher Radko, Hillhouse Naturals, and Old World. Below are two ornaments that Shawn and I love (they remind us of our beloved dog Chloe).

Be sure to stop in and see Bradley & Candel, and tell them that we sent you! Fezziwig's is located on Main Street just across from the train depot (next door to SSSHiney Baubles) you can't miss their gorgeous display window! In case you don't know who Fezziwig is be sure to get them to tell you the story. Finally and sadly Otis & Matilda's Marina Grill closes for the season after this weekend so you better stop in and get your "fix" before they are gone. Oh how I am going to miss the chicken salad and cupcakes.

New arrivals this week!!

Our new merchandise is arriving and we literally have furniture stacked on top of furniture!!!

We love this stonewashed linen. These casual slip covered dining room chairs are beautiful and they look great mixed with other dining room chairs.

This desk is from a new furniture company that we found this fall in High Point. They are out of California and they have some really special pieces. We love the spooled legs, you will see them on a bar (pictured below). We also have a fantastic queen size, four poster bed that we don't have out yet (no room).

Two new chairs that are sooooo comfortable but even more stylish. The leather chair is a Relaxor (it's not called a "recliner" anymore) it is perfect for the man who wants to comfortably, recline and the woman who wants style.


This sofa is another new item, it has upgraded cushions making it unbelievably comfortable. The size is perfect. I loved this fabric and told Shawn that I had to use it on something...it reminds me of old French grain sacks.

Did I mention books? We received orders from three publishers this week. We just purchased from teNeues Publishing Group for the first time. The titles include Luxury Houses- Country, Luxury Houses- Holiday Escapes, Luxury Hotels and Cool Restaurants- the cookbook. These books are so well done and make wonderful gifts. Also pictured above are two new Spanish arm chairs and a new bar that has mirror inside with glass shelves.

I am in love with this chair! If you have seen a version of this chair in design magazines you will not believe the price on this one!! The bird pillow is also new, it is from Dwell Studios.
Also in this week, a good deal of new art so please come in and see us!
