Unlike big box stores we welcome independent authors and publishers to take advantage of our shelf space. We expect good quality books and have every right to decline your book for any reason. We are mostly looking for North Carolina authors and publishers but that doesn’t mean we will turn you down if you are out of state.
When you bring us books we expect you to do one book signing, at least. If you wish to do more as time allows we welcome everyone to come back as time moves on.
We welcome North Carolina artists and artisans. We love unique products that are made right here in our lovely state. We are always looking for items that don’t compete with other things we have and while, for example, we have several card makers, if it is unique and different from our other creators, we will consider the items.
I love chocolate, pickles and salsa. If you look around we have local people who have items like this throughout the store and we are always looking for more local only items. So even if you don’t fall under one of the “Group” names doesn’t mean we don’t want to hear from you…just means we haven’t yet.

We have a large selection of wine from across the state but always welcome new wineries. We must taste what you have before ever giving shelf space. Just like our other items we don’t want too much competition in one area but always look for something a little different to complement what we have.
We only deal directly with the wineries.
The reason is people who come to the store, much like the ones that visit your winery, want the stories about the wine, they want a feel for the wine makers and a reason to come out and visit you at your home. When using a distributor we don’t get that from you and the customers can’t get that from us. Also if we can pick up your wine in the local grocery store you don’t need a little privately owned business like us.
