Why is Little Brown House crossing the road?
By Karen Welch — Senior Content Producer
Little Brown House is set to open this week at Wolflin Village.
It's a homecoming of sorts for the store, which offers china, crystal, silver, housewares, decorative accessories and other gifts and provides bridal registry services.
This will be Little Brown House's third location at the Wolflin Villlage shopping center in its 80-year history, according to owner Freeda Simms. Wolflin Village is the shopping center on the southeast corner of Wolflin Avenue and Georgia Street.
Little Brown House last moved when it traded a space there for one in Wolflin Square, the competing shopping center across Wolflin on the northeast corner of Wolflin Avenue and Georgia Street.
"We're taking Little Brown House back home, and I'm really excited about it," Simms said, adding she is pleased to be locating near the locaations where a new Jason's Deli and other retailers are taking spaces.
Little Brown House will take over space formerly occupied by retailer Et Cetera, she said. Workers were placing items in the new location as she spoke, Simms said.
"It's going to be more able to really capture the Little Brown House feel, I think, over there," she said.
