I am so excited to do our first feature from Albert County on the ” Road to Waterside”. February is a perfect time to feature this pretty romantic place. I have known Kerry for a long time through our family connections but mostly only knew her when she was a little girl. I was so excited to see it was her with a new business on the road to Waterside. I don’t get in there very often but I am always checking what she has for sale on Instagram and Facebook. I gave Kerry some questions that may make it easier to get to know her and her business So without further ado I give you Kerry Edgett of Antique Chic in Lower Coverdale, NB:
Question 1: How long have you been open and what or who inspired you to open your business?
I am now going on my fourth year of being open. I’ve always been drawn to older,antique items since I was a very little girl.I would yard sale with my mom and always pick up pretty,feminine items for my bedroom.I had quite a collection even then going on,lots of perfume bottles lol. The passion has always been there for me and I knew one day I wanted to open my own little dream spot of pretty items to sell.It finally happened almost four years ago!
Question 2: How would you describe your shop?
My shop is mostly filled with feminine style items such as vintage nightgowns,painted furniture with curves,girlie items like hair brush sets,old perfume bottles,beautiful smelling handmade soaps,embroidered linens,old quilts,pretty milk glass pieces,ironstone and more.I also have shabby chic style items and cottage style decor.
Question 3: Where do you get inspiration for the projects you do and pieces you collect?
I get a lot of my inspiration from decorating magazines,pinterest,instagram and also from just experimenting from my own ideas!
Question 4: What other interests or hobbies do you have?
I love spending time outdoors in my flower gardens,hiking in nature,camping,listening to good music and going to the beach with my two daughters and granddaughter .Also,flea markets,thrift shopping and local auctions are a lot of fun for me!
Question 5: Do you have any future plans for your business?
I have some future plans for my shop which involve expanding the shop so I have a bigger space.I will be able to have some different styles that way and hopefully a work area for painting and crafting.I stick with one theme now,which is more on the romantic side because it all flows together so well
Question 6: How can people reach you and when can they visit your shop?
I am open from April until late December and closed winter months.I still open by appointment though :)My shop hours are on my page during the months I’m open.I can be reached from my Facebook page,Instagram or by home phone 506 386 3429 and also by email firstname.lastname@example.org
Aren’t those pictures lovely? Obviously Kerry loves pink and has more of a vintage, shabby chic vibe. I can usually find something to go home with me when I visit. I hope you all drop in to see her! Watch for her sign and the painted bicycle as you drive through Lower Coverdale.
Thanks for sharing your shop with us and continue your great work Kerry! See you on the “Road to Waterside”!
