Three women have teamed up and moved their consignment businesses into the recently opened Cottage Home in Port Royal.
The new store at 920 14th St. is owned by Indre Palencia, who is using the home-turned-office-turned-bookstore as retail space for herself and vendors Barbara Marsh and Ginny DuBose.
A New York native, Palencia was an interior designer for 25 years. When the economy crashed, she turned to retail.
"This was my hobby and my passion, so I was finally able to do it," she said.
She originally opened Cottage Home last year at 1632 Paris Ave., then moved to Consign and Design on Paris at 1406 Paris Ave. Palencia opened her most recent location June 2.
The store includes furniture, antiques, decorations and other home items. Palencia said her specialty is furniture she and her husband paint.
Marsh's specialties are art deco and vintage and costume jewelry. DuBose focuses on local items and makes crèches with indigenous Lowcountry materials, according to the businesses' website. They were previously part of Consign and Design.
"It's a little culmination of our passion and interests," Palencia said.
