When Karen VanOverbergh and her fiancee Marc Sugar moved to Hertford, NC they saw so much opportunity for the growth and beautification of the historic downtown area. COVID rushed their plan to move and build a home in our little corner of paradise, but it didn’t hold Karen back from purchasing a building and rolling on with her dreams.
The “Old Gregory’s building” as many call it, has had a rich history in serving the residents of Perquimans County and beyond. Karen wants to continue that legacy. In the Spring, she celebrated the opening of a shop in the lower half of her building, and last month she celebrated the ribbon cutting of her own shop called Sugar She Shed!
Sugar She Shed is an artisanal craft supply store where you can find Annie Sloan paints, quilting supplies, and other locally made items. You can even sign up to take a class. Quilting, painting, and sign making are just a few of the activities you will see happening in Karen’s charming space. Stop by 117 N Church Street to say hello and grab some of your favorite crafting items soon! In the meantime, enjoy some of the photos from Sugar She Shed’s grand opening and Ribbon Cutting!
