On Etsy since 2011

Welcome to the Screen Porch!

My name is Cheryl, and I'm proud wife to my husband of 20 years. Charles T. and I have three daughters, ages 20, 17 and 6. We've been educating our girls at home for 9 years now and are very thankful for the time we spend together! My husband and I grew up here in Fayetteville, NC. His family has lived here for six generations!

A couple of years ago, a sweet friend encouraged me to start an Etsy shop, we joked, so I could sell “my husband’s stuff!” Well, with his permission, I finally sold those old copper pots from Turkey! (Long story ~ here’s the short version: T. served in the Navy for four years and acquired two 'lovely' copper teapots that never could find their way out of our attic.) We celebrated that sale with a steak dinner!

My girls and I love hunting for treasures! Any chance we get, we’re searching through thrift stores, or headed to the next yard or estate sale, searching for clothing, old books, something for our home, school or personal use, and the next listing for The Screen Porch.

Great service is very important! My goal is for you, as customer, to be completely happy with your purchase. Please let me know how I can be of service to you!

One last note ~ we love finding treasures, but our hearts are turned heavenward. Jesus said in Matthew chapter 6, verses 19 through 21, "Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also."

Thank you for stopping by!
