Miss Claire’s Variety Shop opens in Rutledge

RUTLEDGE – Claire Welch never met a yard sale or a resale shop she didn’t like.

Now, after years of dreaming and preparation, she has drawn on those experiences to start her own business. 

Miss Claire’s opened Monday, December 6 at 8140 Rutledge Pike in Rutledge.

“I have been working for four months to get ready to open, but it has long been my goal to open a resale shop,” Welch said.

She laughed as she explained she has been collecting items for years and now needs to open.

“I’ve run out of space,” she said.

Her store will offer a variety of merchandise, including, but not limited to, household goods, collectibles, glassware, health and beauty aids, a limited amount of clothing and some furniture.
