SWEETWATER, Tenn.(WVLT)--From the street the building doesn't stand out, no reason to think anything odd is going on.
But open the door and eerie things begin to happen.
By day midst the witches and goblins for sale, this eclectic shop is full of hidden treasures. Even room for a sandwich or spot of tea
But when the lights go dim at The Paris Apartment Boutique and Tea room, the real ghosts come out.
Debbie Odun, owner of the store told Local 8 News, "One day I was walking past a wine rack like this, and it was late in the evening, I heard a little clink as i walked by. I wondered how how it came off with the claws going up like this, as I got close I watched the next two wine glasses kinda move and slowly fall onto the marble here."
One Sunday morning Andrea Adams was waiting for her boss with the door locked.
"..and we heard the door open.We heard footsteps coming up the stairs....we thought it was Amy. A few minutes later the door opened again, so we looked back out there and Amy had just arrived".
Manager Janet Crawford, said, "I noticed that crate of glasses upended itself, completely on it's side and it had not been that way before, I heard a tinkling,
and I thought uh oh, we're in trouble".
There's also an attic faucet that comes on with no one turning the handles. A painting topples over. and a stereo system that turns itself off more than once when Frank Sinatra is not singing.
That's why the owners called in a paranormal team.
They set up eight cameras and numerous sensory devices.
They say high tech audio deciphered three voices. TECH AUDIO
"Michael...... "Michael"...(play again)...."Michael"
"get out... ..."get out"..."get out".
Mysterious unexplained sounds and happenings, folks here call it creepy, chilling and certainly not a coincidence.
