7Sisterz Design Celebrates Six Years

June 30, 2014 in Editorials

7Sisterz Design L.L.C. is celebrating its sixth year in business in Paris, Tenn. The antique and gift shop is housed in a 90-year-old one-room schoolhouse on County Home Rd. The schoolhouse was restored by Dale and Connie Bell of Paris in 2004 and used as a rental for a short time before Steve and Sally Zwayer-Jones purchased the property and opened up shop in 2009. It is a seasonal shop, open one week a month from May through October. This year the shop is open whatever week the 14th falls – since it is 2014!

Steve and Sally shop for antiques across the country, as they spend six months of the year in Apache Jct., Arizona, where they have lived for 31 years. Steve is a master carpenter and Sally paints, crafts and has a degree in interior design. They love to repurpose old furniture and have many of their handcrafted items for sale at the store. 7Sisterz also carries a large assortment of Paris and Eiffel Tower related gift items. A garden shed, pavilion and front porch have been added since the opening and many special events and classes are held during the open weeks. The sixth annual Fall Festival will be held Oct. 18 this year and features many local artists and craftspeople, as well as lunch and a bake sale. So if you like finding out of the way treasures, look for 7Sisterz Design in Paris, Tenn!
