Wilmington, NC- The Coastal Farmhouse recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark its official opening inside the Cotton Exchange.


The Coastal Farmhouse is located at 346 Nutt Street and is owned and run by Jennifer and Glenn Parker. The event was attended by family and friends along with Wilmington Mayor Bill Saffo. Wilmington Downtown, Inc. (WDI) officiated the event.  


The Coastal Farmhouse specializes in home décor products. The cozy store features an array of furniture and home accessories and also offers seasonal items and decorations. Displays are hung throughout the space and are highlighted by natural light, exposed brick walls and a wood-beamed ceiling.


The business is owned and operated by Jennifer and Glenn Parker.  The couple, both military veterans, recently moved to Wilmington from Tennessee. Jennifer and Glenn's construction and home remodeling backgrounds blend well with the decorative aspect of helping people with design ideas. In addition to the Coastal Farmhouse, Glenn recently purchased a small business (Cheeky Monkey Coffee), in the Old Wilmington City Market.


Jennifer likes the views from the shop’s windows and says, “The light changes throughout the day; as the sun sets over the Cape Fear River, a pink glow creates a warm and magical feeling within the old brick building.” 


“WDI is happy to officially welcome Jennifer and Glenn to Downtown and the shop is a perfect addition to the Cotton Exchange,” said President Ed Wolverton. “They are entrepreneurs who are committed to their new hometown,” he said. 


Store hours at 346 Nutt Street are Monday-Saturday; 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. They can be reached at 615.829.0526 and more information is available on their Facebook page: TheCoastalFarmhouseDecor.
