Cotton Shed Market has been my happy place for almost 5 years. First as a customer, then as a vendor and now an employee. I’ve made Benton my home since 1988 and raised a son and daughter. I now am a Gigi to 2 grandson and a granddaughter on the way. I was in Medical Office Management for close to 40 years and now I’m enjoying the Vintage life here at the Cotton Shed Vintage Market.



Visiting with customers, hearing about their new treasures and sharing memories is just part of what I love about being a member of The Cotton Shed family.  My husband, Chick, and I have 2 wonderful sons, 2 awesome daughters-in-love, 8 precious grandchildren and 7 sweet grand puppies.  When not at TCS, relaxing at our home in the country and spending time with family is what we enjoy.  We are truly blessed!
