Country Decor in the Country

Crafts in the Thrashers' garage

by Shelley Daily

From the March, 2018 issue

In December, Susann and Bobby Thrasher converted their Werkner Rd. garage into the Country Cabin, a holiday and home decor store with a "primitive and country style." Susann, who was a stay-at-home mom to her four kids--now all grown--says while most people her age are preparing to retire, "it's my time" to start a new chapter. Her daughter, Megann, helps with the retail side of the business, and her sons assisted Bobby with renovations.

Among her best-selling items are homemade crafts she creates with two friends, Michigan-made candles with her logo, colorful tin hanging star luminaries she purchased in Mexico, and holiday-themed merchandise. Bobby, a longtime production manager for Billy Joel, is also a woodworker; they sell his handcrafted dressers, tables, and hutches.

Country Cabin, 8200 Werkner Rd., Chelsea. 475-6125, Thurs.-Sat. 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Sun. 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Closed Mon.-Wed.    (end of article)
