I am taking a page from American Express’s Small Business Saturday promotion and starting what I call, Local Business Tuesday.
As a small business owner myself, I make it a practice to support other local businesses and that is made easy by all the great small businesses here in Delaware. That is one reason we added this page to our web site – Business Directory – where we can provide a list of businesses that we recommend. I want to make it clear that we do not receive any financial benefit from any business or person we list here or recommend to you. Our recommendations come from the personal experience of someone within Active Adults Realty or one of our current clients.
Let me start with a personal favorite, a shop here in Lewes that never fails to tempt me with something I absolutely must have. That shop is Twila Farrell. I have a running joke with Sandy – if I find a parking spot right in front of the door, I know I am going to find exactly what I came in to buy! Seriously, that has been the case with shoes twice in the past year. The first time, I needed a dressier sandal for an upcoming event so I drove into town on a summer’s day thinking “I will never even find a parking spot, but if I do, I’ll check out the shoes at Twila’s”. As I came down Second Street, what did I find but a space right in front of the store. When I told Sandy what I was looking for, she said “hold on a minute” and she disappeared into the back. When she returned, she had a great pair of NAOT sandals in her hands that were perfect and my size and they were ON SALE! You almost never find a pair of NAOTs on sale and certainly not in my size, 7 1/2.
So, a few months ago, I really wanted to find a nice pair of pumps for those days when I did not want to wear boots. It was too early for sandals and I just cannot wear those pointy toe stiletto heels at this age. So, once again I had a few minutes in between appointments and drove into town. Just as I got near the store, someone pulled out right in front and in I went! Sandy was there to help and I told her what I was looking for. Don’t you know that there were a few pair of this absolutely perfect black pump by NAOT and one was in my size. They are so very comfortable as are all NAOT shoes and each time I wear them, I smile (and so do my feet).
Twila Farrell is well represented in other parts of my closet too. Whether it is a simple black dress or a wonderful sweater or duster, whatever I have bought there always brings me compliments.
Like this wonderful long jacket that I wear over and over, over jeans, over a black dress, or over a cream tunic as seen here in this photo. When you feel good, it’s contagious, and I felt great that night at a celebration with most of our agents and our friends from K Hovnanian Homes.
So next time you want to find something fabulous for any occasion or no occasion at all, stop in to see Twila or Sandy at Twila Farrell on Second Street in Lewes, Delaware. And tell them “Kathy sent me”!
