This month, we are featuring a business spotlight interview with Rescue Me Market + Mercantile located in downtown Thomaston, GA.
Rescue Me Market + Mercantile was established in 2012 by Deanne Avery & Lane Coggins, who took a chance on a big dream by quitting their full-time banking careers. Operating in one of Thomaston's historic downtown buildings, formerly O. W. Jones & Son Hardware, Deanne & Lane run one of the most successful antique, furniture and home goods markets in the area.
