There’s a lot more! Once you “cure your ailments” in the herbal store, you might be ready for lunch. They’ve got food too, and they didn’t skip dessert. That means pastries, pies, ice cream, and cakes. And they didn’t forget the coffee.
Once you’ve improved yourself, you might shop for kids’ clothing or shop for the home. Custom window treatments, custom framing, African and Egyptian art, novelty items and antiques are only a small sampling of items that have passed through these doors. Stock is changing all the time, so this might have to be a weekly trip. You could even come for art or hair braiding classes.
Once you and your home are transformed, you’ll probably want to show it all off. Why not with a party? Music, scented candles, gowns, balloons and invitations can be found here. And parties might lead to . . . weddings. They can be planned here too. Silk flowers, wedding invitations, lingerie, even the bridal purse.
