Since 1891, the old white General Store on the corner of Blue Ridge Road and Greenville Highway has been the center of community life in Historic Flat Rock.
For almost 100 years, the Peace family offered everything from farm fresh eggs and a relatively recent copy of the New York Times to a little local gossip around an old wood stove.
While in some respect life has certainly changed since the turn of the nineteenth century, this special corner is more alive, eclectic and intriguing today than ever before in its history. For two decades now, The Wrinkled Egg, as this historic grocery is now known, has anchored this colorful corner offering an unusual collection of goods and eateries. Here you will find original Southern Folk Art, antiques, Life is Good clothing for all ages, Brighton jewelry and accessories, fun stuff for kids and exceptional summer camp care packages.
You can also pet our lop-eared bunnies, talk to the finches, enjoy a brick-oven pizza on the back deck or wood-smoked BBQ under a magnolia.
Just like the old days, you’ll always find good conversation, old-fashioned service and friendly smiles here. Come take a stroll through the colorful shops next door that give us the name, Little Rainbow Row. All in all, we’re a great place to visit.

Virginia Teel began The Wrinkled Egg in the summer of 1990 in what was formerly known as Peace’s Grocery. Today, The Wrinkled Egg anchors Flat Rock’s colorful group of shops familiarly known as Little Rainbow Row.
Unusual accessories and decorative accents aren’t hard to find at The Wrinkled Egg. Currently we feature a great variety of rustic metal and wooden lanterns of all shapes and sizes.
We feature the work of many southern folk artists like Sandy Erickson-Wright. Sandy is known especially for her farm animals and pear paintings on a variety of scrap wood and vintage ceiling tin.
