Antique Store featured in magazine

Posted Saturday, August 7, 2010, at 9:35 PM

Laurie Everett's store Annie Laurie's featured in Southern Living
Annie Laurie's Antiques, at 536 Broadway in Cape Girardeau, is currently featured in a special edition of Southern Living magazine titled: Southern Living Before & Afters.

Annie Laurie's is listed on page 3 of the issue under "Editor's Favorites" by home editor Jennifer Kopf. Annie Laurie's is the only store in Missouri listed. Others were located in Texas, South Carolina and Alabama.

Kopf is from the Cape Girardeau area, said Laurie Everett who has owned Annie Laurie's for four years. "We have an eclectic mix of items. We have everything you knew you never wanted," she said.

Everett said many people have misconceptions about antique stores.

"So much of design now is retro and vintage," she said. "You don't have to spend a ton of money either."

Annie Laurie's has about 6,000 square-feet of antiques and vintage items. It is open seven days a week.

Here's a collection of photos of Laurie from her toddler days, when she was an Army MP, at her wedding and as a remarkable young businesswoman.


OK, I have to come clean: she's my wife's niece.

But, that's not the reason I'm impressed with what she's done in a short time.

She's managed to broaden the appeal of her antique shop to locals, college students and out-of-towners.

Laurie "gets" the Internet, and she's doing some of the most innovative web marketing and promotion I've seen come out of Southeast Missouri. Laurie is the kind of person Cape needs to get Old Town Cape on the move.
