My team and I share a passion for finding remarkable treasures at affordable prices. Nothing lights up our day more than finding something beautiful to wear, or to put in our homes, amongst the many aisles here at the Emporium. Usually the prices of these things can’t be beat! And trust me, I shop everywhere! From the big chain stores, to the small boutiques, consignment stores, online, Etsy, ebay – there is nothing quite like the vast collection of treasures we have here. And it just feels better to keep our dollars local.
We all love working together, because mostly, we support each other’s shopping habit. Isn’t it more fun to shop with friends? I have scored designer jeans at amazing prices. I have been overjoyed by handmade bulletin boards and laughed with glee over some amazing jewelry. If you have met our manager, Becky, you know she has an amazing ability to put together a killer outfit. On any given day she is sporting a least one item from our store.
I am amazed every day by some of the stuff that comes through our door, and it just keeps coming! Our store is so unique in this way – I don’t choose any of the things that come in, but instead rely solely on our local community to produce our inventory. When we opened this store, we didn’t know what to expect, but the community has far exceeded our expectations. I couldn’t do any of this without the support of our local vendors, and to them I want to express my sincere appreciation!
This month, some of my favorite acquisitions: pink dog bed $18 (we have a new puppy), french porcelain bottle with cork $11 (love the French chic vibe), Joe’s skinny jeans with ankle zippers $15 (my favorite brand), handmade baby barrettes with clip strip $10 (baby shower gift), and a pair of Born flats $20 (my 10 year old just discovered she can wear women’s size 6)!
If you enjoy bargain shopping and supporting your local vendors, come see us!! We are happy to share our passion for finding “just the right thing”! We are open every day!
