Our Store History

This wonderful old building was built in 1946 with double thick walls in case it was needed as a munitions storage area. That never was necessary but the Bentley family housed their textile company in the building.

The factory has long been relocated, although the company offices are still on the upper floor. When the store is quiet, I can hear my friends walking around on the original creaky floor boards. A sound I find very comforting. In turn, the Bentleys and the other employees of Marietta Drapery can't resist visiting occasionally to see what is new and to rejoice in the old lady's new look.

Many gallons of paint later, our grand old lady is polished up and again receiving visitors. Be sure to notice the brick ceiling; constructed with the same technology as the London underground. The occasional ghost drifts by, interested in all the changes, I suppose, or wondering at our state-of-the-art long arm quilting machines, so different from the primitive mill machines of the past.

    Starting over again...




    A lot of elbow grease, some paint here and there, bring in the shelves, add bolts, bolts and more bolts of fabric, lace with a few books, sprinkle with some ferry lights and poof, Red Hen Fabrics springs back to life.
