TIME TO CELEBRATE

Screen Shot 2014-04-16 at 12.59.53 PM

According to the Dictionary, FOLLY is a building constructed primarily for decoration. True! 

We can hardly believe it’s been one whole year since FOLLY appeared in Midtown, brining us a new destination for decoration: interior design, home furnishings, gifts, and bridal registry.

To help us celebrate - Stop in any time next week and you will receive  20% OFF one item!

WELL DESERVED

It’s so nice to see GOOD PEOPLE being rewarded for their LABOUR OF LOVE…

Our local MUD has received some well-deserved national (and international!) recognition recently. How lucky are we to call this our LOCAL BREW?!

10 best coffeehouses across the USA, Larry Bleiberg, Special for USA TODAY, February 28, 2014

MUDHOUSE COFFEE
CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA
IT’S NOT SURPRISING TO FIND A BUSY SHOP IN A UNIVERSITY TOWN, BUT IT’S MUCH RARER TO FIND GOOD COFFEE, DEFERIO SAYS. “MUDHOUSE HAS BOTH. IT HAS THE LOCAL ART AND THE QUINTESSENTIAL COFFEEHOUSE FEEL — AND THEY HAVE AMAZING COFFEE.”
