Friends share dream of owning consignment shop

Published 4:40pm Friday, March 1, 2013

Tammy Elkins and Angela AbuAdas shared everything as close friends growing up in Weaverville, N.C. – jewelry, shoes, dresses and purses.

Now they’re excited to share the same things with customers at their new consignment shop, Just Between Friends.

“We’ve known each other since high school and this has always been a dream of Tammy’s,” said AbuAdas. “I’m just really happy to be a part of it and get to know our customers.”

Located just on the edge of downtown Tryon is the cozy, two-story building now playing home to country primitive antiques and southern pottery, as well as women’s clothing and accessories.

Elkins credits her in-laws as a catalyst for her desire to get into antiques and consignment. The couple for 40 years owned Elkins Antiques in Weaverville. Elkins said much of the inventory has come from their warehouse.

Jewelry on the other hand is another passion Elkins shares with AbuAdas. The two said they seek out options that give customers a variety of price points and styles to choose from.

“We also proudly sell custom handmade stone and sterling/pewter jewelry by designer Tena Cole, also of Weaverville,” Elkins said.
