After retiring from the retail industry, Corey's youngest duaghter Tad kept begging her to open up a shop toghether. “Come on mom we can go in Cahoots together!” Since both gals dearly love to laugh, and get a kick out of a little tongue and cheek, a name was born. The gals also shared a love of antiques, and all things funky, rusty, and a little splintered. The idea to combine humor, antiques, and a little practicality became the idea for the store. They also wanted a place where southern hospitality and traditional values were evident. Where everyone is greeted with a big hello, and if you needed help someone was there to give you assistance, but if you just wanted to browse you could make yourself at home.
The location for the store was easy. A one hundred year old building in historic downtown Crossville where the floors creaked with history. A once five and dime selling small pets and popcorn seemed the perfect fit and the remodel began. Refinishing the original wood floors, exposing the long plastered over brick walls, making it a place where warmth and history greeted you. After endless requests from our out of town cutomers to have a website, we are happy to announce our “bricks and clicks”. So enjoy our website and if you have any questions, we're here to help, so just give us a call or email.
