New store promises ‘heaven on earth’
- Published: February 22, 2011
Heaven On Earth Emporium, recently opened in the space vacated by Basho Apparel, is filled with a great variety of products for tourists and locals.
Patrons can come by for sandals, pillows, home décor, flavored mustards, sweaters, jewelry, bricks of fudge, soap, salt water taffy, handmade beaded jewelry and aprons, bulk candies, vegan purses, paintings, pottery, fabrics and trims, pre-packaged seasonings, garden supplies, umbrellas, new and antique apparel for ladies and kids and, eventually, furniture.
“I like to think I’m not a thrift store,” said owner Donna Blackmon, who has similar stores in Xenia and Waynesville. “It’s more of a higher-end boutique experience without the higher-end boutique prices.”
Blackmon hopes that everyone visiting her stores can take home, “a little bit of heaven.”
