YORK–Stacye Moser, better known as “Duchess of York,” used to run a vendor booth at the former Cozy Cottage on George Washington Memorial Highway before taking over the antique business and changing its name. The new business, Yorktown Mercantile, will hold a grand opening celebration on Friday, September 17.

Yorktown Mercantile specializes in furniture, antiques, art, tea towels, clothing, retro items, and everything vintage.

“We feature more than 20 spaces each filled with antiques and vintage goods, artisan painted décor, and unique refinished furniture,” Moser said. “We also have DIY tools and supplies including Iron Orchid Designs, Dixie Belle Paint, Sweet Pickins Milk Paint, DIY Paint, Redesign with Prima, and Howard’s Restore a Finish.”

The idea behind the business is to make Yorktown Mercantile a welcoming environment for people to recycle, repurpose, and sell their goods.

Moser’s retail experience as a manager at Pottery Barn and other retail shops has helped her in this new venture.

“This is a dream come true, owning the Yorktown Mercantile,” she said.  “I love old stuff and home décor. One of our main goals with Yorktown Mercantile is to highlight local artisans and makers, to provide a home for local packaged products, authors, and more.”

Yorktown Mercantile is located at 7330 George Washington Memorial Highway. Its grand opening celebration will take place Saturday, September 17, from 11am to 4pm. For more information, click here.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
