Did you know….15,621,419 Americans are currently owner-managers of a small business? Guess what? I didn’t either. Chef and I are two of them, and my business neighbors and friends make a whole bunch of the rest of the 15.6 mil. I spend a lot of time on Main Street. Not just working, but playing, and this week I had a blast on warm, sunny October day strolling the town. This week’s finds include:
Sayre’s Eden Boutique, 8294 Main Street, https://sayreseden.com/
Owner Jenn just opened this beautiful and charming shop on Main a few weeks ago. I was searching for an addition to a Sweet 16 birthday gift. Cue the amazing and creative soaps:
Jenn also has super fun mugs, hand bags, accessories, and the graphic tees (well, let’s just say not appropriate for a teenager, but def next level for all the fun loving moms in your life.) The shop is beautiful, be sure to stop in and say hi.
[be] blends, 8407 Main Street, https://beblends.com/
This family operation was just about to open a new store front the week after the May 2018 flood. Talk about perseverance. Stacey Ann and her family were determined to get back to Main, and their new location opened last month. There soy candles are amazing and they made great gifts for two of my dearest girlfriends.
They also carry home decor, jewelry, soaps, skin care products and more!
A Journey from Junk at Linwood Boutique, 3707 Old Columbia Pike
I love that these two Main Street staples have joined forces for good! Kelli has the most creative sense of style, and sense of humor that makes shopping in her store so much fun. I give you this:
My other fun find of the day, was this candle holder.
A Journey from Junk carries everything from Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, furniture, gifts, clothing, accessories and so much more. The Linwood Boutique’s mission is to help adults with autism. It’s amazing seeing this collaboration come alive.
Looking for a unique gift, a great place to lunch with girl friends, or want to see the history, floods, fires and all, Main Street, Ellicott City, or as we call it OEC, is the perfect place.
