While not all of the items available at Unique Decor & More are made internationally, this horse sculpture was made in Indonesia from hand-carved teakwood roots, owner Debbe Pugh said. Pugh, who lived in Indonesia for three years, said carvers often spend days or weeks on just one part of a sculpture to make it look as realistic as possible.

Most of the pieces found in Unique Decor & More’s 8,500-square-foot building in Pinehurst have been imported from around the world, owner Debbe Pugh said.

Pugh said she has traveled to multiple countries, including Singapore, Australia and China, and lived in Indonesia for three years. Pugh said her world travels have inspired some of the items she offers at the Pinehurst store.

“I love different cultures, and I have an appreciation for [them]. Everybody wants to make all these other countries America, but they’re not America,” she said. “Some of my inspiration comes from that, but I also try to get stuff I think my customers will like.”

Unique Decor & More—previously called Pinehurst Trade Center—opened in September 2018 after former owner Cheryl Holderrieth told Pugh she should open her own store, Pugh said.

“I was [previously] involved in importing, so over the years I’ve known Cheryl, she kept saying, ‘You need to do this.’ She had retired, and the building was just sitting there,” Pugh said. “I thought, ‘What the heck, why not give it a shot?’”


Pugh hand-picks items directly from the factory so she can offer wholesale pricing to her customers—which makes her prices lower than a retail store, she said.

She said she offers home decor and furniture and receives new items about every two weeks.

“My items come direct. There’s no middle man, so I don’t have to mark up the price like you would at a retail shop,” Pugh said. “This way I can sell it cheaper.”

In addition to regular business, Pugh said she plans to offer new events this fall, including a sip-and-shop event in November as well as a visit from Santa in December.

“The people out here, they’ve just been real sweet. I enjoy people coming by, even if they just want to talk and don’t buy anything,” Pugh said. “I’m from a small town myself, so I just love Magnolia.”
