First of all, I want to thank all of our wonderful customers who have supported Manzanita through these first seven months! We heard repeatedly since our opening in May, “I will remember this shop when I’m looking for gifts, especially at the holidays.” And you did! In spite of our cold, snowy, icy December, Manzanita had a successful season, and I am so happy and proud to be located in an area where so many people vow to “shop small” and support local businesses.
In return, I vow to keep our shop fresh and interesting with an emphasis on handcrafted treasures. We will be going to market this month to seek out new lines, and it will be exciting to look for merchandise with an eye especially for Manzanita on Main. I will spotlight new lines each month in the LocalsGuide as they gradually appear in the shop over the next few weeks.
Manzanita will be closed from January 13th through the 22nd as we will need Cindy’s help at our sister store, Flower Tyme on the Plaza, while Tracy and I are gone to market.
Lastly, a reminder that our “half off Christmas items” sale continues until mid January at Flower Tyme, and we have new spring silks arriving early January to give your homes that spark of color that we all need at this time of year.
Thanks again for shopping at Manzanita on Main and Flower Tyme on the Plaza!
