Lee Finds His Way to Winnsboro

Lee was in his twenties when he and three buddies rode into Winnsboro on horseback all the way from Mt. Pleasant. It was his first time to Winnsboro and he did not return for many years. Lee went on to open an antique store in New Boston. After 10 years he closed down his store and started searching for a new community to open another antique store.

After almost 20 years, he was driving north on Hwy 37 slowing down as he entered Winnsboro. On this day he stopped at what is now the Main St. Mall and met owner Betty Watkendorf. They hit it off and Lee rented space from her store for 10 years.

In the Spring of 2010 he purchased the building that would become Beauweevils. In four short weeks he accomplished the impossible, renovating the store with new paint, plumbing updates, new fixtures and all the other tasks to get the ready for his opening. Lee officially opened on May 1, 2010.

Now starting his 10th year Lee commented that he still enjoys coming to his business every day. One of the best parts is enjoying the people that shop at the store. He expressed a real sense of pride and accomplishment from his antique mall. Lee said he will go, if he can, until he is 90.

Stop in and visit with Lee and his famous cat Weevil. You will be glad you did.
