Art of Oil gets new owners
by Staff Reports
The Art of Oil on King Street in Boone is now under new ownership.
Tammie and Mike Jolly, owners of Rustic in Blowing Rock, took ownership Nov. 26 and will continue to operate the store under the same name and with the same focus.
Art of Oil offers a line of olive oils and balsamic vinegars, offering free samples and related accessories and gifts. The store also offers local cheeses, pastas and chocolate.
"It was a great experience to visit our parent company in California last week and receive extensive training for tasting, pouring and correct storage of the oils and vinegars," Tammie Jolly said. "These are really premium products."
The owners also plan to offer at the Boone store select pieces of wood furniture, handcrafted items and wine country gifts like those found at Rustic.
