The Common Thread Mercantile opened its doors in 2010 in a quaint antique community in Illinois. The shop was located in the barn of the Milburn Manor estate that was established in 1867. When we weren’t busy with customers, we sat on the porch taking in the peaceful view. The physical doors of the shop closed in 2013 as I prepared to retire. Now it’s time for Take 2 of The Common Thread Mercantile...online!
