Fourth of July at the Hillside Shops

The Shops celebrated their first 4th of July in what had to be the coolest and least humid July 4th weekend in Cashiers' history. The constant threat of rain never materialized. It was a perfect weekend.

Brookings' in the Garden is our newest addition. The cottage serves as a very nice annex to the handcrafted art the main store now carries.

Marc Hipp, Brookings' guide, was giving private casting lessons in Hillside Park.

Sage Sez joined us for the weekend as a one-time vendor.

Dawson Bryant made a fine model for the tees.

David Berger put the finishing touches on a huge landscape oil on Friday.

No sooner did he get it framed...
SOLD! Awesome.

Rob Childress worked the floor while mom Belva ran a delivery.

Riley Adams rocked a patriotic collar in fine style.

Little Lolli Belle!

A little larger Lolli Belle!

There was no shortage of adorable children and babies.

Evie Auerbach made a new friend when she gave a fan a porcelain West Highland Terrier figurine.

Two of Caroline Brown's Sugar Girls came out to show off their custom made dresses.

And good friends not seen in months showed up with the newest family member!

The Shops are open Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 11-5, though Labor Day weekend, reopening for leaf season on Thursday, October 7th.
