The other day I discovered a new shop at Deep Creek Lake. I felt a bit silly since it has been in the area for over 12 years but for some odd reason, it never occurred to me to go and check it out. Sacred Ground is located on the top floor of a large building in the heart of McHenry in the same building as The Popcorn Factory. As I started to drift upstairs, I could hear soft music playing in the background (always a nice touch) and voila! I was in a woman’s paradise! Rows of jewelry lined the wall with everything from rings, necklaces, bracelets, and more! From the name “Sacred Ground”, you can get the gist that a large portion of the jewelry was from a Southwest origin but still a large variety (I saw at least 10 pieces of jewelry that I know I must own and own asap!) I was greeted by the owner’s daughter Tiffany who was extremely sweet and displayed awesome customer service. She was very helpful and didn’t seem irritated at all by my many, many questions. She explained how her family had moved into the building 12 years prior and were actually the first tenants in the building. Her family has always had a love for the Southwest region and actually travel to Arizona and New Mexico to pick some of their merchandise directly. These also work closely with a Navajo Artist who helps design a lot of their jewelry. Walking further into the store, I noticed that they carried a lot more than just jewelry but there were candles, paintings, vases, and even clothing. Such a large selection of different items to choose from!

Then I spotted what looked to me like just a very pretty lamp, however, Tiffany explained to me that it was actually a Himalayan Salt Lamp made of mined and carved minerals and it actually carries medicinal properties that are helpful for people with asthma and allergies! Neat! Between the beautiful music that played, the many delightful items to check out and again, the superb customer service, I knew without a doubt that I had found a new shopping venue! (Did I also mention that it was right on the lake and boasted breathtaking lake and mountain views?) We here at Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations & Sales we love to support our local shops and highly recommend to our friends and guests to stop in and check out Sacred Ground (grab some popcorn on your way out as well!)
