This is where I've been spending my Monday afternoons this summer. The owner of this unassuming looking little shop is my neighbor, Mary Lou. Her family and my husband's family have been neighbors for 5 generations.
You'll find lots of Nauvoo souvenirs.
Ready made pioneer clothing
Lots of pretty dolls
more stuff you'd expect to see in an art and needlework shop
There's a selection of basic Avon items and you can order from the Avon book here.
Need a pillow tie for that traveling man of yours?
T-shirts or bonnets?
It's also the only place in town where you can buy sweats. She made a ton of money when it was cold in July for the Pagent.
I'm tired of loading pictures! No way I could give you an inventory of what all is here.Truth is, behind this tiny looking shop front there are 3 very full rooms in which you can get lost. I've been working here all summer and I'm still discovering things! Mary Lou and her husband Jock have spent DECADES going to auctions and garage sales buying and collecting. There's jewelery, ready made quilts, antiques ... You name it, it is probably here. So, if you're in town, stop by, tell Mary Lou, "Hi", and have fun exploring this awesome little Nauvoo treasure.
God Bless You All!
