Shop Tour

Our front door on busy Main St. in Wytheville, VA.

Our shop is located at 460 E. Main Street, Wytheville, Va.  We are in the old part of downtown in a house built in 1840.  The back section was added in 1992 and it became a bed & breakfast.  Carol & Marty Britt bought the building in 2001 and turned it into Batik Paradise!

From Main Street.

Inside front door

The floors, stairs, and windows are the original 1840’s building.  The banister is hand carved walnut.  Marty refinished it and it is sooooo smooth.

To the left of the front door starts our batik collection. The room to the left is the batik room and is one of the original rooms to the house.

I’ll continue the tour as I have a minute.  Enjoy!

  4. I wish I was close enought to come and visit. I will be going to Bali on a dive trip in November 2011 and wonder if you have any tips for buying batik’s while I am up there and the best place to go (I am also a Quilter in Perth Western Australia. Your shop looks great.

  5. I stopped at Heartwood and was really intrigued by Sylvia Richardson’s baskets. I am very interested in buying one of her baskets and was hoping to get in touch with her. I could not seem to find a website for her and would appreciate it if you had one if you could pass it along. If not, please give her my email and let her know I would be interested in seeing pictures of some of her work. Thank you.

  6. Hi Mary, Sylvia doesn’t have a website. I will give her your email address. She does beautiful work.

  7. I have just ran across your website. I was looking for Batiks. I love your shop, I do most of my fabric buying on the net as nothing but Wal Mart is around here. I know I am not probably at the right location to leave a request for emails, but I am busy busy shopping. Please if you do mailings would you please put me on your list. I love the fact I will be able to find any batik I need.
    Thank you so much

  9. Do you particapate in any shop hops in your area? If so what is it called and does it have a website? Also what time of year does it take place? I pass through your area pretty often and try to include a stop everytime. I would love to be on your email list also. My friends are wanting to see your shop and we thought a road trip might be in our future.
