Garnet King, owner of Garnet's on the Square, describes her store as carrying a variety of items including re-purposed furniture, antiques, new merchandise, and upscale home decor consignment.  King rents booth space to vendors that have created a unique "look" in each space.

The store opened last Saturday, March 1 and King says that some vendors have already had to replenish their merchandise. 

King said while working at a downtown retail business, she thought about how the building would be a great location.  Before opening, King updated the space by exposing the original tin tiled ceiling and painting the exterior. 

Garnet's on the Square is located at 116 North Jefferson Street and is open from 10 AM - 5 PM Monday through Friday and 9 AM - 5 PM on Saturday.  Click here to check out their Facebook page.
