Tommy's Coffee Shop Remodeled

April brought some changes to Tommy's in the form of new furniture, added space, counter rearrangement, and the addition of new bakery items.

And cat and dog mosiac tip cups by Laura Winzeler Designs, in keeping with the tip matching program that results in a quarterly check for the Cashiers-Highlands Humane Society.

What used to be the meeting room is now additional relaxing space. However, a new meeting room is about to reopen next to this room.

Zeke and Earl's got a critter mosaic tip cup too.

Cashiers Village Hillside Shops Reopen Memorial Day Weekend

That was then...

This is soon!

The much-anticipated 2010 season of the Cashiers Village Hillside Shops will kick off at 11am on Saturday, May 29th. The garden cottages will be open from 11am-5pm through Memorial Day, Monday May 31st.

The independently operated shops showcase select regional artists offering unique products of the highest quality and creative integrity across a diverse range of mediums. Shoppers will find paintings, weavings, mosaics, llama fiber products, pottery, jewelry and woodwork. Here are some great photos from our trial run last October.

The Hillside Shops and surrounding garden area will be the heart of Cashiers Village, a residential and retail community at the Crossroads being developed by Raven Cliff Land Company. The Shops are the first step toward the full realization of the retail portion of Cashiers Village. Locals know this as the land behind Tommy’s Coffee Shop and Zeke & Earl’s hot dog stand, adjacent to Brookings’ Cashiers Village Outfitters, which has a recently expanded artisans' gallery of handcrafted products.

It is Raven Cliff Land’s intention to create a welcoming and engaging community at the Cashiers Crossroads that will include a thriving retail portion along with a pedestrian friendly, cultural town center. Cashiers’ visitors and residents will enjoy frequent artist demonstrations and presentations in the garden. Cultural events will take place in the surrounding areas, including musical performances, film festivals, holiday celebrations, pet and child-related activities, and charitable events.

Hours of operation will be 11-5 on all Saturdays in June, expanding to Thursday through Saturday, 11-5, from Fourth of July weekend through Labor Day. As in 2009, the Shops will reopen on weekends during October leaf season.

The artists are excited to return to the garden for the first full summer season and look forward to your visit!

That's Our Matt!
