Samuel Harding 1885 (cabin)

Samuel Harding is the first recorded owner of this historic one room cabin.  Samuel a colored man purchased this property back in 1885 which was very unusual for the times.  Prior to the recorded purchase it has been said the cabin was moved a couple of times prior to 1885.  We believe this cabin is over 200 years old and is one of the oldest preserved cabins in Tennessee.  Cabin has been restored to reflect the times and is now used as an old fashioned photo studio.

Malissa Lambert has been creating art and a collector of vintage clothing & antique items since she was young. “My grandmother, Mary Brogdon, took me to flea markets, estate sales and yard sales from the time I can remember. I would research each treasure I found until I knew as much about its history as I could. I still do this research for each item I find now. 

Malissa has owned three physical retail locations of her shop in two states in the last decade and has a great deal of experience with planning and hosting events as well. She spends hours and hours each week driving near and far, digging and picking through hundreds of items to find treasures for her shop. She also creates unique items from vintage materials like her one of a kind dreamcatchers, windchimes and much more. She loves all things old. "Growing up by The Cherokee National Forest which is part of The Smoky Mountains and spending every summer there with my grandparents who ran a campground, I also love the hunt for amazing rocks!" She is a self proclaimed " goonie & rockhound" and she sells many different fossils and minerals in her shop as well.
