Kazacoff works as an RN for GM in Greenville. For years she has enjoyed buying antiques and collectables until her house in North Travelers Rest was full.  

“A friend in the business [antiques] said I had a good eye,” she said. “Landrum is the perfect town for a shop. It’s so quaint. I used to love coming here to buy antiques.” 

Kazacoff’s shop is filled with what she terms, “a little something for everyone.” The shop is filled with a few pieces of beautiful furniture, decorative lamps, bowls and Amish butter churns. Old books grace the antique cabinets and hand made quilts drape across wooden rockers. Fun little nick knacks and decorative items fill in the spaces. 

On the right side of the shop is the “man cave” where Kazacoff sells old tools, a western saddle, hay forks and even a couple of decorative swords. The left side is bright colored dishes, an elegant dining table, lace tablecloths and teakettles. A cute sign hands from the eves proclaiming that space as “the She Shed.’ 

According to Kazacoff, she couldn’t manage the shop without her husband, Nick Kazacoff. “He’s my fix it man,” she said. “He does the small repairs and painting.” 

The Yankee Peach officially opens Saturday, February 10. Kazacoff said she plans to be open Wednesdays through Sundays. For more information call 864-386-5800 or visit the Yankee Peach at 120 E. Rutherford St. in Landrum.
