Same store/new location

Most of you locals are familiar with a semi-new store called
Hathaway Cottage.  It's lovely and offers up many beautiful items for your buying pleasure.

Truth be told - the original location didn't show them off well enough.  An opportunity recently came their way and they are now in downtown Allegan.

The building they're in housed our one and only jewelry store which had been a landmark since Hector was a pup.  When McFarland's closed up shop, people around here were sad to see them go but wished them well.

We're all thrilled that Hathaway has moved in and made the space their own.

I couldn't seem to get a good enough shot of the exterior so this will have to do - for now.

Something for the yard?  Look closely; see the doggie water dish behind the potted flower?  Just in case your pup gets thirty while you're strolling the downtown business district.

First thing you see as you enter the store.

The baby clothes will have you oohing and aahing like a fool.

Jim and Sandy Wheat had their hands on these beauties.

Cards for any special occasion.

I think this bird bath belongs in my yard, don't you?

I think this Brighton bracelet belongs on my wrist, don't you?

Proprietors Carol and Randy Sneller.

Carol is waiting patiently to take your $$$.

We bought these.  Drop by at your leisure and smell my house.
More Brighton bracelets.
Another Brighton piece.  They have other outstanding handbags, too.
Wouldn't these scarves look cool wrapped around my neck?
A ton o' earrings to pick from.

Such a classy way to bag up our candles. 
Those Snellers are sneaky people.  They make sure you fill up on nibblies and spiked "fruit punch" and then you spend with reckless abandon.  Just like us - TWO WHOLE CANDLES!!!
 Just so you know.  The Snellers are very nice people but don't expect the above goodies to be there every time you go to their store.  This occasion was a "Brighton" party of sorts.  Hathaway has just started selling this line so this was their way of announcing the news.

If you live here in Allegan and you haven't been to Hathaway yet, 
you need to go in and check them out.  If you don't live too far away, come on into town and stroll the streets and drop in to see Randy and Carol.  That is if Randy's not out on the golf course.

    1. We let our candle supply get very low here for some reason. Now we're back in business. Smells great here.
