The “Fat Chix Collection” (as we like to call it now) has gone through a lot of change in the past few months. The Aluminum Mule now has five owners and has been renamed Templeton’s. Mary is still 1/5 of the owners so some of her things are in the store but Templeton’s features more vintage items now. The store is constantly being stocked with new and interesting things so make sure to stop by regularly if you are a vintage shopper. You never know what you might find! Templeton’s will actually be opened a few nights during the week.
Templeton’s new store hours:
M – 5-7:30 pm
T – 1-5 pm
W – 9-5 pm
Th – 5-7:30 pm
Fri- 9-5 pm
Sat – 6:15 am -2 pm
Sun – Closed
Meanwhile across the street…
As many of you know, Mary (along with her business partner Marcy) has been working hard at the new “Fat Chix” location in the back apartment of the “Lizard House.” Mary named this spot Zophia’s but of course…we all still call it “Fat Chix.” Coffee will EVENTUALLY be moved over and served at the new location sometime this fall. Some more plumbing has to be finished, but Mary’s goal is to have a small coffee bar in there eventually for espresso.
Outside of the new location is the brightly painted blue and orange shed Mary calls “Marigold’s.” Inside this shed is local-made maple syrup, honey and all kinds of other cool “outdoorsy” items. If you haven’t peeked in there you need to! The front of the “Lizard House” will eventually feature garden items fo
r sale and other outdoor artwork next Spring.
For all of the candle fans, we will be getting in our usual stock of Woodwick, Bridgewater and Lakeshore scents by the end of September.
AUGUST 31 – FALL WREATHS, PAINTED PUMPKINS AND MUMS
Our annual fall decorations will be coming in starting August 31.
SEPTEMBER 17 PIE & COFFEE FUNDRAISER
From 5:30-7:30 we will be hosting a pie and coffee fundraiser. Stop by the Templeton’s parking lot and have a slice of home-made pie or purchase a whole pie to take home. Donate what you are able to. Money raised from this will go towards the materials needed for our next fundraiser helping the Grand Haven pier/catwalk that needs a lot of TLC and a lot of money to help restore it. Details on that fundraiser to come later.
