Southern Shopping For Southern Treasures
The McRae Marketplace...Antique Mall and Flea Market welcomes shoppers from far and wide to come experience a unique place for southern shopping. This southern shopping place will surely reveal southern treasures.
The year 2009 has been a great one. New businesses often times take a while to get off the ground, but this one has moved right along since it first opened in the Spring of 2007. The success of this new business has been by word of mouth by so many people that enjoy their frequest visits to see what southern treasues may be found.
To the many local shoppers in McRae, Georgia, Telfair County and surrounding counties, we thank you for your patronage. We also want to thank shoppers from the Middle Georgia area and travelers that stopped by this unique business to take a look at what we have to offer. We thank the many shoppers on route to other destinations that took the time to stop and shop with us and sign our guest book as well.
It's been a great year according to the owner and managers of The McRae Marketplace. They foresee 2010 being even better. With more vendors coming in and more shoppers learning of this relatively new establishment in our rural community, even more excitement can be found here. The year 2010 is expected to be a fantastic year for treasure hunting in the South.
Happy New Year!!!

Decorating Your Home For Christmas!Marketplace Owner, Britt Rich and Manager Joy Ricks are busy as can be these days. They are eagerly serving the public as they come in to shop. They have certainly noticed an increase in business as shoppers visit, shop and buy from The McRae Marketplace during the Christmas season. They first noticed an increase in shoppers just before Thanksgiving and traffic has increased every day since then. They are thrilled to have shoppers filling the aisles of the large showroom of vendors showing their wares. They report that new vendors are coming in and many new shoppers coming by to find incredible bargains. Local shoppers are thrilled to have a place to shop for bargains. Manager Joy Ricks and a local vendor report that they have seen an increase in sales for Christmas decorations as compared to last year's holiday season. Many shoppers are seeking good, quality Christmas trees, ornaments and decorations at a reasonable price. With so many vendors offering a wide variety of Christmas decor, there is no doubt that lots of festive decorating will be going on in many southern homes during this joyous Christmas season!
From our families to yours, we wish you a safe and blessed holiday season!

Affordable Home Decorating
You may have thought that My Southern Home Place...The Bargain Store for Wholesale Gifts, Collectibles, Home Decor and Garden Accents only offered merchandise online. You may have seen some of our specialty catalogs and wondered how you could take advantage of the low prices when you had rather shop off-line. You may have visited http://www.mysouthernhomeplace.com to find out more about the products, prices and services offered. You may have discovered that wholesale prices are offered to consumers as well as retailers when you shop online. You may have found that you could start your own independent distributor business or initiate a fundraiser for your non-profit organization. You may have also learned that My Southern Home Place offers many of these same great products locally.
Yes, it is true that My Southern Home Place does not have a brick and mortar store or warehouse at their business address, but that certainly does not mean that shoppers do not have the opportunity to shop locally for so many fine gifts, collectible and home decorating products.
In 2007 My Southern Home Place joined the newly established McRae Marketplace in McRae, Georgia. By expanding our home decor business in this way, we were able to offer our merchandise to local shoppers. At that time only a trickle of shoppers came by to shop, but literally within months, word of mouth spread and quickly brought visitors from far and wide. Visitors come from everywhere. With the marketplace located on the Golden Isles Highway, many travelers from all over the country have dropped by to look around and many have become return customers.
My Southern Home Place is proud to be a part of The McRae Marketplace. We invite you to come by for a visit to see what our business, along with many others, have to offer you.
Recently adding shelf space, we are always working to bring you more merchandise. Our shelves are filled to capacity with home decor products and great gift ideas. We are continually bringing new home accents, kitchen accessories, and unique gifts such as: decorative country-style birdhouses, porcelain dolls, Christmas ornaments, dishware, glasses, decorations, scented candles and unique candleholders, rooster cutting boards, apple cookie jar, Martha Stewart 5 pc. mixing bowl sets, plush animals, shabby chic tables, small wood side tables, clocks, pillows, sculptured fruit candleholders with coordinating lamp, bathroom accessories, bath and body gift sets, variety of windchimes and so much more. Home decorating is easy and affordable when you shop My Southern Home Place!
