The Blue Elephant

Highlands, NC

You’ll want to allow yourself plenty of time to browse the aisles of Blue Elephant Consignment, located at 2248 Dillard Road in Highlands (across from Freeman Gas.)

That’s because owner Brandie Potts has stocked her shop with a kaleidoscopic collection of furniture, fine clothing, home décor and children’s apparel. It’s a constantly changing selection that practically demands a careful stroll.

The opening of a consignment shop seems like a natural progression for Brandie.

“My husband and I started the business because we sold our house and had no where to put our furniture so we decided to open Blue Elephant,” she says. “I have always had a love for decorating and furniture, so this is something I enjoy. The fun part is always re-decorating as we sell and get new items. We try to make it look appealing so when people walk in they can visualize the furniture in their home.”

Is it true that people come to the mountains to shop? You bet! Most stores in the Highlands-Cashiers area are owner-operated. This means enjoying a level of personal attention unheard of at the mall. Many businesses have been here for decades and have become a destination for generations of shoppers.
