Coshocton Annin Flagmakers Showroom renamed The Coshocton Supply Company

| April 1, 2019

Coshocton Annin Flagmakers Showroom, (Coshocton Visitors Bureau), had an official grand reopening on Monday, April 1 at their location at 432 N. Whitewoman St., Coshocton. The business, renamed The Coshocton Supply Company, will now feature Coshocton-made products from Coshocton artisans as well as Annin flags.

COSHOCTON – Coshocton Annin Flagmakers Showroom, (Coshocton Visitors Bureau), had a grand re-opening ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, April 1. Renamed The Coshocton Supply Company, the business will now feature Coshocton-made products from 12 of Coshocton’s artisans as well as Annin flags.

“I think the presence here is a really unique venue to our guests,” said Mindy Brems, executive director of Coshocton Visitors Bureau. “Hopefully we have more people walk in the door and we can share Coshocton’s story while they’re here with us.”

In a recent press release, Brems said, “We believe the fresh new look and beautiful products will attract additional visitors. This will expand opportunities for us to personally welcome guests to our community and share information about the area. We also look forward to engaging area residents who are interested in local products and activities in Coshocton County.”

The new look started last February when the board decided to include a product line and the business needed a new name to complement its facelift. Although they are still an Annin Flagmakers dealer, the store now offers home décor, pottery, exclusive tee-shirts, jewelry, soaps and salves, fish oil, honey, maple syrup, preserves, and many other items made locally by Coshocton County residents. Suppliers include Wiley’s Finest Fish Oil, Hillbippie Clay, Mullett Apiaries, Rusty Plow Press, Strawberry Hill Farms, Winding Creek Farm, Found Adornments, Hickish Home & Hubby, Mill Creek Homestead, Wix & Match Candles, and Crow House Pottery.

“We started [remodeling the showroom] in the beginning of February,” said Brems. “We emptied the first floor entirely and painted everything. David [Baker] helped tremendously with that, too. He probably put in 24 hours of volunteer time working on painting and repairing the ceiling. Right before the end of the year, we found out that Ohio State of Mind was not going to reopen and we had been approached by people who had been selling at Ohio State of Mind. Melissa Mullet was very helpful in making connections with the other sellers. We have been very proud to sell American-made products here.”

The Coshocton Supply Company is open daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. with Sunday hours beginning in May.

“I’m so excited about the turnout today,” said Brems. “The weather was beautiful and almost all of my suppliers were here today. They’ve been such a big part in creating this space and their input has been so important to me as far as what they want to sell and share with the community.”

During the ribbon cutting ceremony, Brems also introduced Rachel Bechtol who will begin on Monday, April 8 as the social media and guest coordinator at the visitor’s center.
