About the store
The Wooden Moose was created out of owner Cindy Moorhead’s love for antiques and primitive items.
The new store is full of antiques, primitives, and unique handmade “one of a kind” items, as well as Dixie Belle paints; Warm Glow candles; Green Bubble Gorgeous scrubs, body butter, soaps, and bath bombs; and painted furniture and clothing by The Threaded Needle.
They also carry items handmade by Pluff Mudd Market, Made by Marianne, Made by Renee, Dan Black and Britt Dean.
Cindy started making crafts years ago with her mother and continues to have the passion to create and collect antiques, primitives, and anything farm-related.
She and her husband have set up at craft shows, Christmas Around Wilmington, and at the Peddler’s Mall and The Shoppes at the Old Mill.
“We love what we do and decided to open a store which has always been my dream! We invite everyone to come out and take a look around our store,” said Cindy.
