Kid's Zone USA and Then & Now Home Furnishings celebrate in Blairsville, Georgia
Kid's Zone USA recently celebrated a successful two years in Blairsvile, Georgia. Friends and community members joined owners Gaylee and Rick Gulley for the special event which included a ribbon cutting by the Blairsville Union County Chamber of Commerce.
Kid's Zone USA is a consignment shop that offers quality name-brand children's clothing and accessories at bargain prices. The store occupies 2000 square feet and is full of nice merchandise. Parents will love the selection including infant to teen clothes, shoes, toys, books, furniture, linens, and maternity items. There is also a rental program with nice cribs, play pens, and high chairs. This service comes in handy for anyone with out-of-town guests that have small children.
The Gulley's, along with Chamber members and partner, Aleceia Martin, also held a grand opening for their newest shop called Then and Now Home Furnishing. This store is located next to Kid's Zone USA in Dogwood Plaza at 1300 Blue Ridge Highway .
Then and Now offers furniture and home accessories. There is a great selection of items such as lamps, rugs, and paintings. Gaylee adds, "Consignment is a great way to recycle things. It's good for the seller and the buyer. We do things on a 50/50 basis."
Gaylee says, "It's a lot of fun. We were in semi-retirement trying to decide what to do. We determined that the community needed a good consignment shop. Parents get good bargains and can resell items when the kids outgrow them. We opened Then and Now with partner Aleceia Martin because people were asking for home furnishings."
Then and Now is located in a 1000 foot space but plans are already underway to expand. Gaylee says, "Kid's Zone has been very successful. Now people can shop right next door for home furnishings, too. We have seasonal sales and new stuff arrives daily."
Gaylee and husband Rick live in the Nottely Dam Area of Union County. They have four children and four grandchildren. "We would like to invite everyone to come in and see the two shops. We are also accepting items for consignment."
