As soon as you arrive into the small town of Whitesville, you’ll be greeted by Whitesville Mercantile on your right. It's a former Dollar General store turned vendor shop that features more than 20 different shops inside.

“This is just a melting pot of everything," said Matthew Morris, co-owner of Whitesville Mercantile. "I consider it an upscale flea market because you never know what you’re going to find. It changes every day.”

This local business was started back in 2016, and five years ago, the idea to start this shop all happened when the three Morris siblings decided to come together and combine Matthew’s woodworking skills with his sisters talents.

“It was kind of just a vision we had together," said Morris. "My sister already had a shop in the center of Whitesville that was doing really, but it was in a small space, and my other sister opened up the embroidery side.”

And when you shop at Whitesville Mercantile, you’re supporting this community and buying directly from the hands of a local Whitesville vendor.

“There’s a lot of people here that may do it for tuition fees or different things in the community of Whitesville, so you’re coming in and helping them send their kids to school, and some of them are retired people, and they need a little extra income to make it, so you’re helping them out," said Morris. "Like I said, it’s a community effort for everyone.”

From handmade paintings to custom-made hats supporting local businesses, you can find it all at Whitesville Mercantile
