Core Sound CHRISTMAS STORE to open November 5th

Core Sound will be opening its CORE SOUND CHRISTMAS STORE in Morehead Plaza on November 5th with our annual Core Sound Crabpot Tree 20% Off Sale (ONE day only, cash and carry) at 10 am.

Thanks to the owners and managers of Morehead Plaza Shopping Center we will operate a Christmas Store at this location through mid-December on Friday and Saturday each week.

Crabpot trees, Christmas crafts, decoys, books, museum shirts, gifts, framed prints and North Carolina treats will be on sale, giving shoppers a convenient glimpse into all the beautiful offerings found in our Museum Store at Harkers Island.

Bill and Margie Ward will lead this volunteer crew so if you can help, please let us know. There’s lots of work to do – as always – and we will be depending on our former Corner Store folks to help lead the way. Make plans to help with setup, SHOP and run the Store! (When Bill calls, just say “yes!”)

And add this to your Christmas shopping plans too --- Core Sound’s Museum Store will celebrate its ANNUAL CHRISTMAS OPEN HOUSE on November 19th with Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus, the return of Santa’s Workshop for kids (ages 4-10) and a PREVIEW of our Waterfowl Weekend merchandise. Shop early!

Today was the FINAL day of Core Sound Waterfowl Museum Corner Store. We had a busy day and finished with a bang-up weekend. Now the clean-up begins and the distribution of stuff to other non-profits so they can benefit.

Once again, thank you to all our customers...seemed like family for some since we saw each other often. Hopefully, you will continue to support the Waterfowl Museum and all its activities. Friend their page to keep up to date on the events.

05/14/2016

Thank you BILL & MARGIE WARD for taking on the Corner Store with energy and commitment to carry forward the work that others have led over the years ... Jerry and Norma Hyatt, Denise Pope, Peggy Lemons, Chris Hunter, Melissa Creamer and all the hundreds of volunteers who have given THOUSANDS of hours over the years! It has been an amazing place doing incredible work that has helped the Core Sound Museum move forward with programming and operational needs!

And yes, thank you to the contributors and customers who supported us with their checkbooks and their "stuff." Many, many beautiful items have gone through our doors thanks to you.

A giant thanks to the Broughton Family -- Harriet, Mel and Jimmy -- who have believed in the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum & Heritage Center from the beginning and have given over and over to help us build not only a facility but an educational resource for all of eastern NC.

We are looking now at other options to continue our outreach on the mainland so stay tuned. In the meantime, come see us at the "end of the road" on Harkers Island and see what YOUR support of the Core Sound Corner Store has helped make happen!

05/14/2016

As we approach the last day of The Core Sound Corner Store being opened, I would like to thank each and every one of you that supported us and came in on a regular basis. I may not know or remember all your names ( I am old, you know) but I cherish the contact we had and your support through purchasing and donations. A large number of you not only purchased, but donated extra to support the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum in Harkers Island. I hope you will continue to do so by following and participating in the events being held continuously at the Museum. Thank you to ALL the volunteers that worked here also and don't forget: COME OUT SATURDAY, MAY 14TH FOR OUR FINAL SALE!

05/13/2016

Another LONG day at the Core Sound Corner Store. We are on the down slope. We are open Friday (13th) and Saturday (14th) and then we will be closing for good. Sorry but things happen. However, you can take advantage of GREAT discounts on furniture, glassware, books, and much, much more including CHRISTMAS IN MAY! That's right you can buy tupperware tubs loaded with all sorts of Christmas items for less than pennies on the dollar! Come by and see us at the Market Place (between IHOP and Jersey Mike's) in Morehead City.

05/08/2016

Special thanks to Bill & Margie Ward for leading the liquidation efforts ... Hope to see you next week at the big sale!

We are looking at other options/locations too, so keep the Corner Store in mind. It has been a great five years (thanks to the Broughton family) at this location and we are looking at other options moving forward.

In the meantime, take advantage of this great sale! MANY MANY thanks to all who have made this great venture a tremendous success!

05/08/2016

Extremely busy day at The Corner Store...thank you Dan Williams for stepping up and helping Margie and I pull it off. Our last weekend will be next weekend (May 12, 13, 14) and then we will be closing. Gonna miss all the people who come in regularly and visit us...don't know them all by names but sure gonna miss their faces and stories...hope they all continue to support the Core Sound Waterfowl Museum by visiting its page and visiting the museum...it is amazing how may people have never been there!

EVERYTHING must go including shelving, display cases as well as our usual outstanding merchandise.
