Nelson County Couple Opens Shop

Anna and Tommy Williams, both natives of Nelson County and now living with their two daughters in Shipman, had dreamed for years about running their own business. When they started renovating their building (in Colleen) in 2015, and opened their doors last year, their dreams became reality. Olde Southern Charm was up and running.

“We always had a passion for antiques and things of the past,” Anna said, “so we started out primarily as an antique and thrift shop. Now we have evolved into a variety shop.”

They now offer primitives, home décor, decorative flags and mats, textiles, new and used items, jams and jellies and more. Most of their inventory comes from estate sales and wholesale companies, and they get some of their products from local suppliers. They also enjoy visiting the Amish and bringing back their famous handcrafted furniture. Due to space limitations, they are not accepting consignments at this time.

  “It is great to be able to interact with the people who make such wonderful products,” Anna said. “Best of all we are supporting other small, family run businesses as well. We love having a business in Nelson County to pass along the wonderful treasures that we find, and we are truly blessed by all of the wonderful people who have supported us in this journey.”
