Clarification on Alan Jackson Sale

In the Dec. 15 issue of The Newnan Times-Herald, there was an article about Christmas decorations belonging to Alan and Denise Jackson being sold at a downtown Newnan store.

Alan Jackson is a country music star, and his wife is an author. Both grew up in Newnan.

Alan Jackson is not selling the items. They are being sold by his sister, Carol Glover, who operates Grannie Fannie’s, an antique and collectible shop across Jefferson Street from the location.

Glover said the Christmas items have been for sale for about two weeks, and many items have been sold.

Glover has gotten word that people might be traveling from as far away as Indiana, and she said there is not enough left for people to make that kind of trip.

Furniture and home decor items from the Jacksons’ homes may be sold later, but they are not available now.
