Family meal has warmed my heart since my earliest memories in the great big family where I grew up as the youngest of eleven children. Dinnertime was an important, daily expectation in our home. The meals nourished us physically and emotionally and have instilled in me a strong appreciation for the gift of spending time with family and friends, good food and the love of entertaining. The “work hard ethic” and the appreciation for spending time with the people I love are important values that I wish to carry on in the generations to come.

The Purple Thistle Kitchen & Co. in the historic village of Pinehurst, North Carolina is a dream come true. My product line is a reflection of the things I appreciate and would want to have in my own home such as fine culinary tools and high-quality kitchenware. I am committed to incorporate American made product lines and to feature locally crafted wares in our stock.

On your next visit to beautiful Pinehurst, drop in, shop a bit and introduce yourself!  Let me have a hand at inspiring you to entertain your family and friends!
