Pendleton SC - Think Pendleton!

Pendleton,South Carolina is an amazing small town and is home to wonderful shops and restaurants as well as great service oriented businesses. I hope you enjoy reading about them and will patronize our business community. All Pendleton Businesses are Smoke Free. Enjoy shopping locally. I sure do and I try to remember to check in Pendleton first whenever I need a wedding gift, birthday gift, baby gift, Christmas gift or housewarming gift. It is possible to find everything you need right here in our own little town! The store owners are always so helpful and make shopping very enjoyable.

Come Stroll the Village Green and enjoy our friendly merchants in a beautiful atmosphere and friendly people.

Doing Business On The Square and Beyond

Businesses Around the Village Green and Beyond

Thank you for visiting these businesses on the square and beyond. If you would like for your business to be featured here, please leave a message in the comment section and I will be in touch.

Shopping locally is very important to a small community like ours. We need to support our local merchants because it is these businesses that support our town with their taxes.

Businesses On The Square & Beyond

The Mercantile

On the sunny side of the square 149 E Queen St Pendleton SC 29670 864- 646-9431

Owners:Bill Earl; Terri Earl Brooks; Cindy Earl Higgins

Store Hours: Mon - Sat 10 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.

Connie and Bill Earl fell in love with Pendleton while on sabbatical leave at Clemson. They decided that they would retire here and Connie thought The Square coould use a "country store". Two years later her dream became a reality.

The Mercantile has been described as having a little bit of everything. They started out with handcrafted gifts, candles, gourmet whole coffee beans (will grind to order), old fashioned candies and chocolates, Folkmanis puppets and other "toys without batteries". They now have soybean oil candles made in Pawleys Island plus a large array of Melissa and Doug Toys as well as iron Tavern Puzzles (under $20), 2009 Calendars, and a fine selection of mugs and boxes.

Shortly after opening they added art rubber stamps and Terri began teaching classes in paper arts in 1995. In 1999 Cindy join the family business and they added beads and crystals and beading making supplies. They offer the opportunity for 8 classes a week with no attendance minimum and will place special orders for you. Classes start at $18 and includes supplies. They also offer "a la carte classes" and allow you to pick from their extensive portfolio (24 hour notice required). The first person to reserve the spot picks the class and that is the class that is run.

Stop on by and you will be glad you did.

The Mercantile celebrated their 20th year in business this year.

The Framery is owned by Shirley and Ken Chappell and is open 10 - 3 Tuesdays and Thursdays and 10 - 1 on Saturdays.

Ken and Shirley have been on the square for 20 years and felt it was a good location to expand their business in Liberty. They say that they have enjoyed being a part of the community even though they are only open on a part-time basis.

The Framery offers custom picture framing and a variety of prints and framed art. They have a large selection of Jim Booth prints as well as other South Carolina art and decoration prints. They are often complimented on their reasonable prices and their help in choosing color and design.

I can sure vouch for that. I always trust Shirley to tell me what she thinks looks good and that is what I go with. They really do a great job and we are fortunate to have them on the square even if it is part time.

I am proud to say that Karen Link at Pendleton Flower Shop did the flowers for our wedding 30 years ago. She didn't have her own shop back then and everyone was so excited when she decided to open her own shop in Pendleton. Karen says, "In 1989, after working in the flower industry the previous 10 years, my husband and I realized the dream of owning a business in the amazing town we grew up in."

Pendleton Flower Shop has provided floral tributes for the Pendleton Area for many memorable occasions over the years and continues to enjoy serving their valued cutomers. Karen's sister, Kim, has been with her for the entire 19 years.

Additionally, the Pendleton Historic Commission, The Pendleton Historic Foundation and the residents are active in preservation and appreciation of our Upstate Heritage which provides the perfect setting for antique businesses. The other five antique shops and the houses open for touring are added enticements for out-of-town customers to Stop, Look and Shop!

Their beautiful and delicious gift baskets make great Christmas Presents.

Pendleton Tire Co. specializes in tires, brakes and wheel alignment. They are known for their superior customer service. Anyone in the area of Pendleton, Clemson, Central, Six Mile or Seneca will tell you how well Pendleton Tire Co. treats their customers.

Joey, Why did you decide to have a business in Pendleton?

I chose Pendleton because of its' small town atmosphere and its' good people. Being a third generation tire dealer, that element was important to me. My grandfather started Welborn Tire Service in 1943. My dad, Gerald Welborn, took it over in 1954. My two older brothers worked there from high school through college and are now operating Welborn Tire and Automotive.

I also worked for my dad from 1987 to 1994. After graduating Anderson College with a B.S. in Business Management, I moved to Charlotte and worked for a wholesale tire distributor. In 1999, I took another position as an account manager for Target Tire in Greer, SC. One of my first calls was to Pendleton Tire. It wasn't long before Grady and Nancy became one of my top accounts. Over the years, we've developed more than a business relationship, I see them as family. Grady and Nancy Seawright have been an icon in the community of Pendleton for over fifty years. I'm proud to now be a part of the Pendleton family. Pendleton is a perfect fit for me.

General Information

Offering E Cig Kits, which include everything needed to get started, packaged in a nice gift box. I have stocked a few of the basic kits, such as Joye 510's, the Ego, and the 808D model. Also all the hardware, accessories, disposables, and the well known DeKang E Liquid with a large variety of flavors and nicotine levels (including 0 nicotine).

E cigs are targeted to people who are current users and smokers of tobacco products and also, to people who already enjoy the "vaping world". Prohibited to the sell of minors, you must be 18 years of age or older to purchase E Cigs. Nicotine is a poisonous and dangerous substance and must be kept out of reach of children and pets.

After 35 years of smoking the traditional tobacco cigarettes, I made the switch to Electronic Cigarettes on August 2nd, 2011 and have never looked back! I am so convinced that the E Cig can and does help people like me to kick the tobacco habit, that I decided to invest and open my own E Cig shop and I am finally online! Some may think that the name I picked is kind of odd, but I chose to name my business ?Whim Wham Vapes? because a whim wham is ?a whimsical object or device especially of ornament or dress; or fancy object?. I think E Cigs are fanciful, unusual, fantastic and can even sometimes be playful!AboutElectronic Cigarettes (also known as E Cigs, Personal Vaporizers, PVs)-A safer alternative to Tobacco Harm Reduction?General InformationOffering E Cig Kits, which include everything one needs to get started in Tobacco Harm Reduction (THR).

      Thank you so much for crafting such an informative Lens. I live just over the state line in North Carolina. We were looking for someplace to explore this past Saturday. We've been to so many places in the region, that there are few towns we haven't been too. Another site mentioned Pendleton as a great day trip from Greenville. That led me to your Lens.Sadly we got a late start and ran out of day before we ran out of shops.We had a wonderful lunch at the Pub. Longish wait for the food but it was fresh, hot and yummy. If we visit Pendleton again, this will be our eatery of choice.We had a nice day and plan on going back. Maybe even for Spring Jubilee!

      I love your sites. I am co-owner of Avenue of Oaks Antiques & Collectibles and will be opening soon on the square, right next to the Islander. It has been amazing talking to folks around Pendleton and seeing how much they love their town. But I have to say, you must be Pendleton's number 1 fan. I would like to have our business added to you site. We're shooting for opening next Thursday (Aug 13 - believe it or not 13 is my lucky number) If you're on the square and catch us there working, please stop by. I'd love to meet you. I'll let you know any details about opening as soon as they are confirmed. email: cell phone: 940-9713

      [in reply to Shelly] I purchased one piece of Edgefield Pottery for my hubby several years ago and it is a treasure.

      Another wonderful lens! I learn so much from looking at your lenses (Joan's, too). Thanks for a great visit - now I need to come see it in person! 5* and a hug!

      Okay, this is the deal, we must forever keep Edgefield pottery a secret from my husband. Just yesterday we picked up a specialty bread from a bakery and as we drove away, he mentioned we could have gone to the pottery shop next door. I reminded him that he's never gotten out of there for less than $75. The chamber of commerce of Pendleton must love you for all promotions you do!

      You have set a high standard for us to follow. This is a great example of what can be done on a lens about your favorite town or city. I see I have a lot of work to do to catch up with you. Your town looks so interesting. Great job.

      I love this lens and what you're doing to promote the businesses in Pendleton, SC. As great as it is, however, it takes a very long time to load for those of us who are still on dialup. Have you considered cross-promoting your other Pendleton-related lenses to make it easier for us to get the full picture of your promotions? Perhaps a link list or featured lenses module? I plan to do something similar for Murphy, NC in 2009. Your lenses and blogs are an inspiration. Very well done. Act on your dream! JD

      Great job my dear -- now if each of these businesses let you do a squidoo lens page and bartered your work for goods -- then you and I'd be in business! Have you thought of that. I particularly love the graphic for Think Pendleton. ;)

      Well, I am always a sucker for the 'shop locally' angle. Growing up we weren't allowed to shop anywhere where they bought their printing out of town. Nice job!

      As the owner of The Pendleton Cafe I wanted to publicly say Thank you to Nancy for all the time and effort she has and continues to put into these sites. This is a wonderful way for us small businesses on the square to reach a greater audience on a low marketing budget. Thanks Nancy Dennis and Josann Thomas
