For the Love of Dovetail


Owner of Dovetail Antiques, Sally Johannessen, curates her merchandise beautifully. It is evident that every item was hand-picked by her, and that there is a story behind each as well. She tells me of her travels to France (where much of her goods come from) and flea markets abroad. Her passion for gorgeous things of old is infectious, and going in Dovetail is an absolute pleasure. Her doves will even greet you at the door as they coo to one another! So sweet. To decorate a home full of these antiques would be divine!

If you are ever in the mountains of Cashiers, North Carolina vacationing, do take a peek in Dovetail!

Also, totally unrelated…but look at this POST by Garance Dore. It is about a museum exhibition and it looks incredible! If only I could see it in real life! Anyone want to go to France with me? We could bring back Sally some antiques…

  1. For a second I thought maybe, beyond hope, that this was somewhere in Tennessee (are you still in Florence?). Was planning a road trip in my head. But alas, I am stuck with Jackson’s Yarbro’s.

    I am so there already! Those sweet doves…ahhhhh.

  3. Looks like a great place! I wish we had more of those type of stores around here.
