One such shop is the Farmer's Wife in Greensboro, North Carolina, a delightful spot that's housed in a former turn-of-the-century grocery warehouse. It's one of my favorite stops on my way home to Virginia for interesting bits of architectural salvage, gorgeous art, antique furniture, and more. There is calm there, a quiet, but also a rich, wonderful sense of style and appreciation for the odd and the imperfect that I love.
And it just so happens that the owner, Dan Garrett, lives above the shop in true old-school shopkeeper fashion, and his transformation of the upstairs space is equally wonderful.
Photos from the story I produced for the December/January issue of Garden & Gun about Garrett's home follow below. For the full story and gallery of photos turn to page 51 of the magazine or click here.
