Michael Hide, the talented, English-born cabinet maker
remembered for his Buckhead Kings & Queens Antique Shop is relocating: His shop
fell victim to development of
the old Peachtree Gardens property, once the site of many gala
dances. He still does custom cabinetry for Ms. Deen Day Smith,
and reports that "with the birth of each new grandchild this
longtime client orders a new cradle from me."
Turnage Place Antiques has a long list of Buckhead fans who
have followed its migration from the original industrial district
warehouse two decades ago, to Peachtree Road, then Piedmont Road. It has
relocated again -- with a higher quality inventory from dealers in
France and a larger selection, but the same great prices and willingness
to cut a deal -- to Huff Road. Look for a blue sign at the intersection
of Huff and Ellsworth. It's at 1192 Huff Road, 404-351-0344.
If you have savored the unique Buckhead
Gourmet Classic Sauces (our favorite is the Hunter Sauce) but have
had trouble finding them, don't be dismayed or desauced. Saucemaker Stephen
Gosch reports that his products soon will be not only in Harris
Teeters, but also in the Grand Hayatt Buckhead, some TJ Maxx and
Marshalls locations, Harry's and Eatzis, or you can order by calling
800-605-5754 or check out his Web site: www.buckheadgourmet.com.
If you've missed the Pierre Deux
store at Phipps Plaza, you can find it at a new location: 721 Miami
Circle. You'll enjoy the same fine furniture and accessories, and
improved customer service.
