Lovely owner Ashley Harlee


Do you need a little inspiration to start your Holiday shopping early? I have the perfect place for you—my happy placeC.K. Swan in Highlands, North Carolina. I was waiting for the puppies to finish at the groomer and stopped by for a little therapy and inspiration.

Christmas is in the air—along with the smoke—and C.K. Swan is ready for all of your shopping needs for the season. They have table settings for all of your Holiday entertaining—and china, glassware, place mats, napkins, silverware or whatever you need to set a truly stunning table.

Be sure to check out the bedding area loaded with beautiful sheets, pillows and throws for those chilly nights. I spotted great gift ideas for that perfect present—beautiful scarves, wraps, ponchos, jewelry, candles, games…. The list is endless!

Ashley Harley has created a charming children’s area filled to the brim with locally made clothing, games, books, stuffed animals and creative storage ideas for all of the little ones’ goodies. Take a little road trip to Highlands and start your shopping early. You might just finish it all in one wonderful weekend!
