Each month, we highlight one of our amazing members! This month we get to know Jim & June McEldowney, owners of Rustic Mountain Decor. If you haven't visited their shop in Merchants Walk off the square in downtown Blairsville, you're missing out! Let's dive in...
What does your company do exactly?
We employ 5 local craftsman to build end, farm tables & sofa tables, bed frames, dressers & chests and create custom pieces. We also get in Amish-Made furniture. Jim designs kitchen & bathroom cabinetry & custom barn wood frames for pics, App Trail & local lake maps. Home accents include local crafters for our candles, pottery, soaps, metal art, wood-carved screen doors, elderberry syrup, teas & honey! - our focus is on USA-made if it's not locally made.
What does your company do BETTER than your competitors?
Custom furniture pieces—"if they dream it, we can build it"! All our handcrafted furniture is unique & one-of-a-kind.
What type of businesses would make a good referral partner for your business?
New or local residents, particularly those who need assistance with furniture, cabinetry, or decor to beautify their home.
What inspires you each day?
Opportunity to fill the needs of our clients & to be an inspiration of possibilities for their new or established homes - always being mindful of our 100% customer satisfaction..love to hear "that's just what I was thinking of"!
What's one thing you wish people knew about your industry?
Appreciation of the talent of our local craftsman - when you are buying from our store--you are supporting not only local business but local families!
What prompted you to start your business?
To provide a store with a focus on affordable quality, to continue Jim's talent in designing kitchen & baths and for June, to begin a new chapter w/my love of home designs & the opportunity of working together as a team instead of going 2 different directions as we had most of our married lives.
Has your company received any awards or accomplishments?
Yes. Business of the Month with Lake Chatuge Chamber. We were quoted in the Summer Issue of North Georgia Living magazine's "Bringing the Mountains Home" article.
