Our Story


Much like Afternoon Delight, Michael and Leisa Douglas have quickly become a staple in the local Cashiers and Sapphire, NC area.  Every visitor that enters Afternoon Delight is met with a warm smile and graciousness that epitomizes the quality and character of the local area.  But their story is atypical.  They represent the small majority of Americans who prove the American dream is not about a large trust fund or who you know.  Instead, it is about hard work and a great spirit ... qualities that have transformed a young plumber and airline representative into a husband and wife success story and team.  Lucky for the locals and visitors of the Cashiers plateau, they have relocated from Florida to the area to embark on a new journey in the mountains of western Carolina.  Together, they have created a gem in Afternoon Delight, breaking the mold on the stuffy, exorbitant priced home furnishings and decor one usually finds along the U.S. 64 corridor between Highlands to Lake Toxaway. Instead, they have introduced home decor, fashion accessories, rustic furniture, bedding and mattresses at reasonable, if not the lowest, prices in the area.  Visit Afternoon Delight today, and see how the store can help complete your home and dreams.
