As Christmas is quickly approaching, I wanted to highlight two of my favorite companies that I have made purchases from lately. Whether you are trying to spruce up your own home or are shopping for the person that seems to have everything, The Rusty Buck in Apex and The Aluminum Company of North Carolina in Durham make it easy.
The Rusty Bucket
If you know me, you know how much I love my porch, so this custom-made sign from The Rusty Bucket was the perfect addition to my space.
The Rusty Bucket is located in Apex and is owned by husband and wife team, Mack and Pam Thorpe. They also happen to be my wonderful uncle and aunt. The store carries American country, farmhouse, rustic, and primitive home décor. They are known in the area for their custom made furniture. If you see something online – or in a magazine – but need a different size or finish, get a picture. Most times they can re-create it for you and customize it for your needs.
Do you have someone on your list that you have no idea what to get? Take the hassle out of gift buying and give a gift you know they will love. Order a “Bucket Box” from The Rusty Bucket. The December Bucket Box will include one of their best-selling seasonal candles, a seasonal towel, along with a SURPRISE! To pick-up at The Rusty Bucket and save on shipping, use the code LOCAL at checkout. They are also offering a “Bucket Box Three-Month Subscription.” When you purchase the subscription, you, or your gift recipient, will get, not one, but a “Bucket Box” in the mail for three months in a row. Most gifts are “one and done” but with a subscription box, your gift will keep on giving and making that special friend or family feel your love again and again. Shop online at TheRustyBucket.biz.
The Aluminum Company of North Carolina
You make not think of The Aluminum Company when it comes to giving a gift, but everyone loves to spruce up their home and The Aluminum Company of North Carolina knows home improvement. My old window boxes were rotting and I was so upset but I am obsessed with my new ones. These are made from PVC so they will never rot. They are a great way to freshen up the outside of your home before relatives arrive. Learn more at AluminumCompany.com.
