What Our Store Offers
Quoting from Ann Marie Byrd, Feature Writer of New Bern Magazine: “The Last Detail is such a popular place to shop for gifts for family, friends, newlyweds, or those people that maybe difficult to shop for during the holidays. During the Christmas season, the shop will be featuring festive window displays, handmade ornaments, Bernstein functional and sculptural glass, Goldhagen hand blown glass sculptural forms, unique hand blown Christmas trees, and other North Carolina items.
The store also houses a brilliant collection of local and North Carolina contemporary artists. Painters such as Karen Crenshaw with her landscapes and nature scenes, and the marvelous local painter, Vicki Vitale, with her captivating, precise miniature oil paintings, draw in art lovers and shoppers. Pottery, by co-owner Jim Bisbee, as well as Joseph Sands will warm up kitchen and living spaces with their authenticity and radiant colors. The work of husband and wife team Jinsong and Carol Kim is positively breathtaking and a must-buy for lovers of Asian inspired pottery styles.
But truly, a visit to the enchanting store wouldn’t be complete without a snuggle from the shop dog, Jazz, named after the city where she was born, in New Orleans. This tiny little pup is a longhaired Pomeranian, and she loves to greet each person that comes through the door, full of personality.”

“Very nice home decor store. All items are nicely displayed in a storefront with a lot of natural lighting and not overcrowded. Reasonable pricing on all their offerings. Both women in the store were very knowledgeable and helpful. We purchased a nice large vase and will be returning in the future.”
