When I Was a Child Antiques and Collectibles closing: The antique store at 1428 N. Broad St. is closing soon and is offering 50 to 70 percent off inventory. The reason: Apparently the owners are moving out of the area. In fall 2017, Illusions closed at 204 Broad St, to merge with Scotty Buffington’s original shop, When I Was a Child. For updates
A family-owned Cedartown craft business is expanding into Rome. Sharon Robinson, owner of Southern Dream Supply, a ‘go-to’ vinyl and blanks store located at 1196 Rockmart Highway, is adding a second location in Rome at 1207 Dean Avenue, the former spot of Courtesy Ford’s Commercial sales lot. The new location opened this week, but a grand opening celebration is planned today from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
According to their website, the store sells heat-transfer vinyl, adhesive vinyl and printed vinyl transfers, as well as all kinds of blanks including tumblers, hats, bags and clothing. “We want nothing more than to provide you with quality vinyl and outstanding customer service. Southern Dream is your source for premium materials and accessories for your crafts.”
Business hours are Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Cedartown location remains open with the same hours.
