The Heart Cottage has
been located in the Historic District of Comfort, TX since 2001.
It is an eclectic mix of distinctive gifts, linen clothing, adorable
baby boutique, home decor, and American Folk Art. The store doubled in
size in 2011 with the addition of HC
Home which features antique furniture and accents in the expansion.
The displays are impressive, the shopping atmosphere is comfortable
and the background music is relaxing. Allow yourself enough time
To the surprise and delight of many, a
year ‘round Halloween display occupies a separate room at the rear of
the store. And, this isn’t your predictable Halloween
merchandise! The main attraction is a colorful, hand carved parade of
characters, from whimsical witches to fearsome Frankensteins, created
by Indiana artist, Greg Guedel. The Heart Cottage boasts the largest
inventory nationwide of Greg’s original Halloween carvings. The
supporting cast is a host of sophisticated, frightfully fun Halloween
merchandise, artfully arranged, from floor to ceiling, in 300 jam
packed square feet. This memorable Halloween department is bursting
with decorating drama, entertaining essentials and seasonal whimsy.
There are elements of glittered, spooky, shrieky, and creepy for every
budget. Each year, as summer comes to a close, fall shipments
arrive and new Halloween vignettes begin to cloak the entire store.
Preparation gets underway for “A Haunting on 7th”, an annual Folk Art
Event, which opens on the 2nd Saturday in September. This has
certainly become a “Do Not Miss” Event.
