CULLODEN, W.Va. -- Holding the bottom corner of a picture frame with her left index finger and thumb, Barbara Rutherford squints one eye and adjusts a painting hanging on the wall in her shop.
"It's upscale," she said. "We make sure everything is in good condition."
The painting is one of about 50 pieces of art hanging on a single wall in one of about 10 of the rooms in her consignment store, "Simple Life."
Located on U.S. 60 in Culloden, the 4,000-square-foot store, in the old "Putnam Post" building, is filled with home décor, such as shelves, antique and modern furniture, lamps, chinaware and other knickknacks. Elaborate rugs line the floors.
"I make it all blend together," she said, laughing at the organization, which could easily be a cluttered mess of a collection of styles.
"I've always loved design," the 58-year-old said. "Here, I get to rearrange every day as I get new items."
On purpose, the shop has something for everyone, said Rutherford, who added that she doesn't always expect things to sell that she personally likes.
"I don't judge. What I think is ugly," she said, pointing to vintage "Merry Mushroom" spice containers sitting on a shelf in the kitchen, "someone else likes."
She also doesn't mind keeping items on display that she's had for long amounts of time.
"It can stay with me forever. It's up to the consigner, but everything eventually sells," Rutherford said.
Many rooms have a theme. What was once a kitchen in the building now displays plates, wine racks, baskets, etc. One room is full of "primitive" décor, which is rustic and looks handmade.
"This is my 'girly room,'" she said, pointing to Betty Boop and other porcelain dolls that surround mirrors and perfume trays.
