Elizabeth Edwards to Open Furniture Store in Chapel Hill

Elizabeth Edwards, fresh off promoting her latest book, has a new business venture -- an upscale furniture store in downtown Chapel Hill. 

The News and Observer in Raleigh, N.C., reports that the wife of former presidential candidate John Edwards plans to open up a store called Red Window, named after the store The Red Door her mother apparently used to manage when she lived in Japan

Edwards reportedly bought furniture from High Point, N.C., for her store by the University of North Carolina campus. 

Edwards was in the spotlight last month promoting her new book, "Resilience," in which she writes about her bout with terminal cancer and her husband's affair with videographer Rielle Hunter. She granted interviews on The Oprah Winfrey Show and other programs, talking about her relationship with the former senator and the toll the affair took on their marriage. 

Edwards plans to open her new store in October.
