Seasonal Spice: Dilworth Pumpkin Patch

Seasonal Spice: Dilworth Pumpkin Patch | Charlotte North Carolina | Scoop.it

There are lots of reasons to be excited in October: the crisp fall air, leaves turning, hot apple cider on a cool night, patios that will soon be abandoned until springtime, Halloween looming ever closer…and pumpkins.

 

Who doesn't love a good pumpkin patch?

 

Monday, I went by the Dilworth Pumpkin Patch. It's right at the corner of East Boulevard and Scott Avenue…next to Jersey Mike's, across from Brixx and catty-corner to Starbucks. You can't miss it!

 

The pumpkin patch has popped up around this time of year for the last four years. It's actually part of Holiday Trees, LLC, run by James Dixon. He's a banker in Charlotte by day, but he started his tree farm in college, and it stuck. The farm is just across the state line in Virginia and Dixon goes up there at least once a month to check on it.

Charlotte fabric store is a hit with the DIY crowd

Charlotte fabric store is a hit with the DIY crowd | Charlotte North Carolina | Scoop.it

"A Charlotte fabric store is making a name for itself turning furniture factory leftovers into eclectic do-it-yourself projects.

Modern Fabrics – started by James and Ewa Powell in January 2007 – has found its niche salvaging new fabric otherwise headed for the landfill and offering it to the public through their online store and South End shop.

James said the store does two things: It keeps thousands of pounds of fabric out of the waste stream and offers it at a discount to people who may not otherwise have access.

The Powells work with a dozen furniture factories around the state that use designer textiles that James said are typically only available to professional designers “at exorbitant prices.”

The Powells said they’ve been surprised by the number of people looking to tackle their own projects. “We thought we’d have a lot of professionals shop here, but they’re only 8 to 9 percent of our revenue. So 90 percent is soccer mom-DIY projects, and it should be,” James said.
