Special Place

May 02, 2018

To the Editor:

There was a local gift shop in Manahawkin that was so much more than just a place to shop. For it was here where as you entered the shop you were filled with inspiration, relaxation and a sense of calmness. The store was operated by the owner and her friend, who was her helper (and partner in crime).

It was here where customers shared stories, tea and a warm hug. Her passion was evident in every product that she sold. Each item was wrapped with love for free.

The shop closed recently after a wonderful six-plus years. I’m so thankful to have shared in her journey with her as I shopped there frequently throughout these years. I have so many stories, treasures and memories that I will cherish forever from time spent in the shop.

I just wanted to say thanks to them both for their non-ending kindness and smiles. Each visit touched my heart and soul. I wish you both the best of everything! Here’s to “your next chapter.” I miss you and your shop already, as I’m sure so many of your customers do as well.
