A New Consignment and Gift Shop Near Big Canoe

By
Real Estate Agent with Harry Norman Realtors 280064

The other day I was driving down the road and had some extra time. I happened to be in the area of Twist Fine Consignments and Gifts. I decided to stop in and check it out as I was curious about the type of consignment items they had. Turns out they do consignments on furniture only, most of it coming from people from Big Canoe. The rest of the store consists of wonderful giftware.

 

Close to Big Canoe

 

Last Winter, in both January and February, I wrote two different articles about stores offering mountain style furniture in the Big Canoe area. Some have new items and some had mountain style furniture on consignment. Although Twist had opened in September, 2015,  I had not been there so had no idea it offered mountain style furniture as well. And one of my favorite things about this store, besides a friendly owner and amazing items for sale, is that it is located in Marble Hill, Georgia, six minutes from my front door, and three minutes from Big Canoe's front gate!

Upon entering this store, I knew it was going to be a place I would love to browse through. When you walk through the front door, you enter into a lobby which has consignment furniture on display. I  knew I would like it the second I saw the bear picture on the wall and the mountain style couch.

Entering the store I was pleasantly surprised at how roomy it was, but that there was plenty of items for sale. Some consignment stores I have been to have so many items placed everywhere that one feels overwhelmed and as though they may miss something tucked behind other items. Not so with this store, and that's probably because the owner, Kelly Barnes, used to be a home stager. It's pretty obvious that she knows what she is doing! The displays are homey and placed in groupings that allow each item to be seen. And there's even an upstairs filled with more wonderful items to peruse.

 

The current furniture choices run from cabin style to Ethan Allen brand. The prices aren't bad either. I noticed an Ethan Allen couch that looked brand new for sale for $2,500, half of the original price of $5,000. Of course the furniture stock is always changing and things come and go quickly so you never know what you might find there.

I was also pleasantly surprised by the gift items in Twist. The owner of the store told me she wanted to incorporate gift ware into the store so people who live in Big Canoe, Bent Tree, and the surrounding areas wouldn't have to drive to Canton or Atlanta to buy gifts. To that end, Twist is filled with wonderful choices of hostess gifts such as candles and tea towels, personal gifts such as women's jewelry, scarves and a line from PurseN that they have just started to carry for women on the go. I do usually have to drive at least thirty minutes to a nearby town to buy gifts for these occasions, as well as birthdays and Christmas, but with this store close by, it's easy to just pop in and purchase them here.

I am happy to add this to my list of places nearby that carry mountain style furnishings and gifts at reasonable prices, and thrilled that it is in Big Canoe's backyard.

This is very good information to share with area residents. I wish we had a shop like that for selling some of our stuff.
