<quoted text> my daughter was the one this lady accused.She seen we had out of state licence plate and she found a coat hanger in her restroom. She had nothing else to do that day I guess. I went back to her shop with the police and I showed my butt. I've never been in jail but I was ready to take this lady out..... mad momma has calm down a bit... lol
I spend a ton of time shopping in BR. There's nothin better than the North Face Store and the lady who owns it also owns Humanity.Kudos to you for showing her how she deserves to feel! I will NEVER step a foot in that store!

Now I know who y'all are talking about. She IS a bitch. My wife and I went in the estate store just killing time and that hussy followed us around like a hawk. She wouldn't take her eyes off us.

How terrible. I have had that happen a couple of times over the years in a different area. I will NEVER go back in a shop that treats me like a criminal.

I my opinion, you do not need to deal with the public if you are that paranoid.

Sad, but true. She has owned several stores in Blue Ridge over the years. Unfortunately, the attitude has always been the same. For the most part, locals know this and avoid the stores(and it is not due to sizes~think quality~attitude of the help~ and generally, poor customer service in general. However, there are several other consignment & thrift stores that have very cheerful, helpful employees. Paula's, downtown is excellent, as well as The Crisis Center, located in the Old McFarland Building, off Highway 5 North, in Epworth.

kathy is a nut she is only after a dollar, she has to make enough money to support her daughter & family to, she buys cheap & sell top dollar.

We have been coming to Blairsville for three years, no we don't own property or a cabin, second home, whatever. We lease a piece of property to put our motorhome on for the summer.
Coming from a small town in PA we try to support local business. We have found numerous stores from Blue Ridge to Hiawassee that we like and feel comfortable shopping in. The first time we went to several of these stores it was quite apparent the thinking was "more damn Floridians". Friendly attitude and manners made a big difference.
Now, I feel at home in the Blairsville Ace Hardware, my wife loves a used book and "antique" store on Welborne St in Blairsville as well as a thrift store just off Murphy Highway behind the little BP station. A weekly trip to Alexanders is normal, I think all the clerks know my wife.
Every town, no matter how small or large city, has stores with owner/customer problems. However, I believe that a serious friendly attitude and understanding for individuals and the area can overcome the feelings of distrust, that many times is deserved.
Anyway, my wife and I appreciate your sharing your mountain beauty and mountain friendly attitude with us.

I glad you have a great time shopping at Kathy's. My experence was terrible. We were falsley accused of taking a pair of pants bcuz a hanger was left in the rest room. You also dont have out of state plates on your car as well. You are so right on the size my daughter couldn't find any 3's..

Why would you even go in to her flea market shop when Dollar General and Wal-Mart puts Kathy's junk to shame? That is probably where she buys it. I say pass the word and shut the ole gal down asap! Disgusting!

Reading about a three year old kid being carried out a thorough security check spurred my anger for my case which was similar to urs.

I'm a uni student and wad just heading into an Australian cheap teen clothing store called Supre in Melbourne city with a friend. As I intended to sleepover at a friend's place, I coincidentally brought a pants that I bought 3 months ago into the shop. They accused me of stealing and immediately called the police and I was extremely horrified as to the way they handled the situation. I have sent letters to the headquarters and the store that I was at but none replied. I got to know that the store closed down about 2 weeks after the incident, but I don't think it's because of the incident. I guess it's because their sales are not good enough to cover their expensive rent (as it is the busiest shopping district in Melbourne) and didn't have any budget for the security system for clothes.

Blue Ridge needs more uni students hanging around to bring more culture and class to the place! I lived in OZ for a bit myself but never got accused of shoplifting there though!

ok, first off, i am very offended by this comment, you do not know my mother or my family and i just wanted to clarify a few things since you seem to want to run your mouth about things you clearly have no idea what your talking about. KATHY DOES NOT SUPPORT ME OR MY FAMILY and my mother works very hard at both of her stores and she thinks very highly of all of her customers but honestly people like you guys that just "get off" on trashing others when you have NO iDEA what really happened, you were NOT there and to the girl on here who is saying "flea market junk", sweetie people as smallminded and insecure as yourself are the ones who are ALL TALK especially when it's about someone else so i feel sorry for you since you seem to not have a life of your own.......GET A LIFE!!! and to whoever said that kathy supported her daughter, GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT, SHE WORKS TO PAY HER DAMN BILLS, NOT TO SUPPORT ME AS YOU QUOTED. ALSO, MY MOTHER IS NOT A BITCH NOR IS SHE A NUT, YOU PEOPLE ARE AN EMBARRASMENT TO BLUE RIDGE, YOU SHOULD ALL REALLY GET A LIFE AND STOP BLOGGING LIES ABOUT PEOPLE......

I feel bad for that family as well. But don't worry. My prediction is that Kathy's will be out of business within 60 days. The owner's tried several different businesses and seems to fail miserably at all of them. This one is probably no different.
Well in answer to your coment you need to get your facts right before running your mouth, i have been in business over 5yrs at one business and i seem to know what i am doing since i am doing so well in both my business's i believe if i am correct you have to close a business in order to fail and i havent closed yet and dont intend to close so i really dont need people like you shopping in my store anyway so get a lifr.(Quote)

this is very disturbing to me, i live in atlanta and my husband and i have a second home in blueridge and have lived here part time for over 4 yrs now and i shop at this store all the time, actually it's one of my favorite shops up here and all i am hearing is all this negativity about this place and i have seen no such things, they are very nice people and i always find the cutest things there, i wish we had more stores like this up here and in atlanta. the lady said she was sorry and you people are acting so inmature and petty. i agree, God help you all!!!!!!!! i thought small towns were all about looking out for their community NOT trying to ruin their business', you people make me sad, i'm sorry kathy!! i will continue to shop there, i have had no problems and unlike all of you, i dont allow ONE bad incident that was none of my business to affect my choices and decisions.
