New Year, Happy News!

Over two years ago, Flea Market Style magazine featured a young couple that lives here in my hometown of Laurel, Mississippi. They are Ben and Erin Napier and I told you about their FMS feature in this post. I’m telling you about The Napiers again, because this energetic couple is starring in a new HGTV pilot that was filmed here in Laurel last summer. The show is called Home Town and the pilot will air Sunday, January 24 at 12pm EST/11am CST on HGTV.




If the pilot receives positive viewership/feedback, the show could be picked up by HGTV and more episodes filmed here. The producers of Home Town are also behind the hit shows, Fixer Upper and Property Brothers, so we have very high hopes and expectations. Laurel has been keeping this "secret” for months and we are so happy that we can finally tell all our friends!

If you would like to know all the behind-the-scenes details, you can read about it in Erin’s online journal. Then, BE SURE to watch on January 24. We love Ben and Erin and we think you will, too!


I’m also super excited because Southern Antiques, where my booth is located, is featured in the pilot. I don’t think any filming occurred in my booth, but Ben and Erin did buy an oak table from me for the home featured in the pilot. I can’t wait to see if the table appears on screen. I’ll let you know……

Happy New Year!

  8. this is such exciting news for Laurel and for the HGTV fans. I will definitely put on my watch list but it might have to be recorded if it coincides with Downton, nothing trumps Downton I'm afraid LOL ! Hope all is well for you and 2016 is starting off great. Mel
