Carol’s Back Porch is an antiques store that has been helping to meet the needs of antique shoppers in Dillard since 2001. Owners Fred and Carol DiMaio moved from their first location on Hwy 441 to their present spot at 1127 Franklin Street which houses over 8,000 square feet of antiques.
Carol says that the husband-wife duo has affection for ol’ country furniture, sets of dishes, kitchenware, quilts, 1950’s table clothes, wicker, Hoosier cabinets, authentic primitive tools and many collectibles. Over half of the inventory in the shop is owned by the DiMaio’s, with the remaining space shared by their twelve dealers.
You can find Carol’s Back Porch by turning off Hwy 441 at the Dillard House sign or by turning right onto Franklin Street just past the Dillard General Store, accessible also via the steps on the north end of the Dillard Mall. We welcome all browsers and have ample parking in front of our “Porch.” The porch is just the place for a quick snooze, while the rest of your party finishes shopping. We are open Monday thru Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. and on Sunday 1:00p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Call anytime at (706) 746-6566. Master Card and Visa accepted.
