The concept store known as P. Bradford and Friends that was the first "pop-up" retail business in Greeneville closed its doors on Nov. 2.
The plan for the "pop-up" retail shop was to open, and then close for good after a set period of time.
P.Bradford and Friends, at 130 West Depot St., opened in May on Depot Street and operated until closing, as planned, on Saturday, Nov. 2.
The colleagues who owned the store and bought into the "pop-up" concept were Charles and Helen Holland, John and Janice Brown, Benita and Lonnie Arnett, Roger and Sally Brown, and Pat Bradford.
From May to Nov. 2 they sold many items that ranged from antiques to personal collections.
The items were an eclectic mix of antiques, vintage pieces, mid-century modern pieces, quality reproductions, and one-of-a-kind designs by local woodworker Roger Brown.
The shop operated on the original business plan, closing on Nov. 2.
After the plan was completed, however, the owners realized they wanted their customers to know how much they appreciated the support and patronage.
It was decided that P. Bradford and Friends would offer their friends and the public a final opportunity to shop before the owners pack up everything and move it back to storage.
The shop will reopen for three days only, today through Saturday.
The remaining stock will be offered at prices reduced by 20 to 50 percent and more, they said.
Some items being offered during the three-day event are beds, tables, primitives, Christmas décor, a milk glass chandelier, old doors, farm tools, glassware, a pie safe, chairs, cookie jars, pictures and many more items too numerous to list.
The hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. today; 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday; and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
Everyone is invited to shop for what the owners say are "the final steals and deals" at P. Bradford and Friends.
You just might own a little piece of the past, the owners said.
