We also know those people that have a “Pinterest Fails” board that need a little supervision with a hot glue gun or pair of scissors. I’m not going to lie, I struggle sewing a straight line, but this is not the case for Trudy McFerrin. She offers classes to those who may have potential, but for all of us who lack the time or God-given talent to create, she has a boutique full of adorable handcrafted goods in downtown Murphy!
Visit Trudy’s Creations at 46 Valley River Avenue to see her impressive selection of handcrafted items and class offerings.
Whether you crave something salty or sweet, Red Brick Deli’s got your back…literally. You can choose from a variety of sandwiches, bagels, and salads with a side of your choosing, but we can’t go without recommending the potato salad. The portions are more than most can finish in one meal, but they have to-go boxes so save room for dessert. The brownies and cookies make great options if you’re in a hurry to get back to work, but if you have the time, that pie is life-changing!Read More
As we all look forward to the long weekend, may we be reminded of the true purpose. While many of us appreciate the sales and opportunities to gather with friends, Memorial Day is more than the weekend that kicks off summer and white clothing. The holiday was originally known as Decoration Day following the Civil War, evolving over the years into our Memorial Day, always falling on the last Monday in May.

It may take a while, but with each visit you can enjoy the company of locals and meet visitors, perhaps even ask a God question, and before you know it, you’ll officially become a Beervangelist.

Get your ticket to the 5th Annual Forks & Corks – Local Savor and be sure to visit the Parson’s Pub to see what they’re sampling on June 6th at The Hackney Warehouse in Murphy!Read More

Rod Brown’s best advice as you seek to insure your family or business is to ask a lot of questions. Truly take the time to really look over your policy and ask all the questions, including: What type of claims are covered or not? What could happen if I have to make a claim? Better yet, give Rod and Farley Insurance a call to see how best they can protect your greatest investments. You may even get a discount as a Chamber member.Read More
