Happy Birthday To Us! Celebrating our 10 Year Anniversary.

It was 10 years ago, in March of 2006, that Kerryn Davis opened a little kitchen store with a funny name in the small town of Black Mountain, NC. It was a bold move by a strong lady. The first year she kept afloat by selling the wonderful antiques she used as merchandise displays. But slowly, year after year, the inventory grew, along with a loyal clientele, and the store evolved into the Toy Store For Foodies that we know today.

This is a collective celebration which includes not only those of us who work at the store, but all of our valued customers as well. To all of you who choose to shop at a local independently run store rather than a big box store, who come back regularly - even if it is only once a year, and who we get to know on a first name basis, this is a celebration for you as well. We are humbled and grateful everyday for your support.

Even though the store changed ownership in 2014, we have tried very hard to keep going what was already there, while at the same time putting some of our personal stamp on the store. But one thing that will never change is our passion for, and attentiveness, to our customer's experience:

  • We try and greet everyone who comes into our store with a sincere hello.
  • We review and test hundreds of products so that we can offer you a selection that is fun and useful.
  • We offer our experience and knowledge freely to help guide you to your perfect purchase.


Come Celebrate With Us

We will be celebrating this important milestone all of April. We will have some fun events, exciting sales, to-die-for raffles, and some free gifts. Watch this space for details as they develop.

From all of us at Common Housefly: Lisa, Connie, Marcia & Mike, we say Thank You for the past 10 years and we look forward to seeing Y'all for the next 10 years.
