Hanging On to Scrap Paper

Wynn Snider came into the shop today clutching a crumbled piece of newspaper and was elated to find that she could get the art work pictured in the ad. “I have held on to the clipping for 9 months knowing that my mom wanted this print and now I have the opportunity to give it to her.  Wynn’s mom, Judy,  recently suffered a near death experience and the family is so thankful that she will here be here to celebrate Christmas. We think Wynn is an exceptional daughter who loves her mom a lot.

The scrap paper was wrinkled and worn.

Welcome to Shelley’s Chatter

Welcome to my blog. I will be sharing news from Dempsey’s Place- recent visitors, interesting comments, new gift items, latest projects and such. Please check back from time to time to see what’s going on in Downtown Welcome.

Dempsey on the Tube

It was great publicity when WGHP-TV8 interviewed Dempsey about our new print, “The Old House” and premiered our new gift items. This was done to promote the Roy’s Folks Craft Show on Nov 16 & 17 (Fri 7-6 and Sat 10 –3) at the Oak Hollow Mall in High Point. Brad Jones is such a gentleman and Cindy Farmer is far more beautiful in person than on TV.

A Nice Surprise

Charlie N. made his wife Linda smile when he surprised her with a copy of “Spring Fling”. Charlie frequently gifts Linda with Essick items for special occasions. Linda loves it and Dempsey loves it too.

Wrap Watches are Hot

Michelle Robertson, our rep for the Winston Salem Journal, enjoyed purchasing a wrap watch on her recent visit to the shop.  We weren’t sure if she was really here to sell advertising or to see the jewelry, scarves and purses in the newly added ladies’ section. (Wrap Watch $14)

The Charleston Touch

We're "southern" to the core and so we love Dempsey's art and the special places and things he depicts in his paintings. We have his art throughout our old farmhouse and we are especially drawn to his Charleston series. My husband and I love Charleston and when Dempsey came out with those beautiful paintings, we definitely had to have them. We spent our 25th wedding anniversary there several years ago and since then its been our favorite destination. We introduced our son and daughter-in-law to Charleston and now that they're getting ready to move there we will definitely be spending more time there, “ shared Pam H.

Wendy’s Boot

“I didn’t have to go far when I wanted to get ideas for a trendy shoe painting. I stepped next door to nail designer Wendy Queen’s shop and studied her collection of tiny heels, sandals, clogs, and boots. She has collected for years and I found just want I wanted. I hope this painting will be the first in a series,” Dempsey said.

Perfect to sit on your desk, hang on your bathroom mirror, or can be used as a magnet,  Dempsey’s pinkie painting of an animal print boot which will add a touch of glamour wherever it’s placed. ($12)

It stands, hangs and is a magnet as well.

Dressing Up With “Cherry Picking Good”

“I know my kitchen wallpaper border is busy but Dempsey’s print of  'Cherry Picking Good' just seemed to compliment it. I love the dark background in the print contrasted with the vibrant color of the cherries,” shared Gerrie E.
