Erin Heckles – Twigs & Teacups

Twigs and Teacups has been a fixture of Downtown Chestertown since 1991 with its current owner Erin Heckles at the helm since 2014. Being part of the close-knit community downtown and having a good relationship with other shop owners is part of what Erin loves about having her shop in Chestertown.

Erin and her team work hard to find interesting items that customers can see and touch and smell that they won’t find or have the same experience with online. The goal of the team at Twigs & Teacups is to make gift-giving as easy as can be. When a guest walks through the door, they encounter a wide variety of great finds that they wouldn’t think to look for but instantly can fall in love with. From kitchen gadgets and cookbooks, to toys for kids and adults, soaps and lotions, home décor, and even women’s clothes and accessories, you’re sure to find just the right gift. Keeping prices affordable is also something important to the folks at Twigs.

Erin and her team would love you to stop by the shop to see what’s new, as new items are introduced almost daily. The staff is friendly and always willing to help you to find just the right thing. While you’re there, make sure to say hello to shop cats Jonathan and Elsa, who are following in the footprints of original shop cat Hobbes, who is still fondly remembered by many customers.

Twigs and Teacups is located at 111 S. Cross St. and is open Monday to Saturday 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM and Sundays 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM.
