FARMVILLE — Tinker's Treasures and Consignment, Farmville's newest business, officially opened its doors recently with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Owned by Patricia Martelli, the former manager of The Salvation Army in Farmville, Tinker's Treasure is the final product of months of work. Martelli said.

While preparing the building for its grand opening was not too difficult, it did take a bit of elbow grease, she said.

“It did take me a month to get this place ready — painting and getting everything up to code, but it was worth it,” Martelli said, explaining her new home, located at 4274 S. Main St., was previously used for storage. “This business is something I've always wanted to do. I managed the Salvation Army for about two years. I loved working with the people … they're like family.”

Martelli first opened her business in Snow Hill, but said she missed Farmville and its residents immensely. She secured her new location in September.

“I wanted to come back to Farmville and the people have been begging me to come back here,” Martelli said.

The community welcomed her back with a steady of stream of customers.

Tinker’s Treasures offers its customers clothing and accessories, along with a wide variety of home goods and housewares.

“We sell up-scale, high-end clothes,” Martelli said. “I try to keep everything nice and keep name brand clothes stocked, so people can afford them.”

Judy Gidley, the director of the Farmville Chamber of Commerce said, “This lady … she is a worker bee on steroids. Her heart is as big as all the world. She’s a giver.”

Tinker’s Treasures is one of the chamber’s newest members.
