The Gilded Willow is a place where the old becomes new again and the wear and tear of time just tells a story. A place where talents, creativeness, uniqueness, and rarity are celebrated. We love old and new alike and feel every life is better lived with a balance of the two.

The Gilded Willow is owned by Chris and Christina Shook. The Shook’s live in Watkinsville, Ga. They have one son and seven “furry children”. Christina has been in the Property and Casualty Insurance business for the past 17 years and Chris is a Deputy with the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office. Christina brings a passion for repurposing to The Gilded Willow. She likes to seek out pieces that still have life, but need a little help. She enjoys creating new purpose for the old, dated, and “unusable”.

The Gilded Willow offers antiques, vintage items, home decor, gifts-for-everyone, and seasonal retail collections.
