I’m so excited to start another fun feature here on the blog. In the past couple years I’ve fallen in love with several local businesses. These businesses, some well known, others not as much as so important to our city. I’ve come to know many of these business owners personally and have come to love shopping in their stores!
Over the course of the next few months I want to share some of these businesses with you. I hope you’ll go in and visit them and tell them that you heard about them from me!
First up is Finders Keepers! I have to say like many people I’ve always thought of Finders Keepers as an upscale Prom boutique and jewelry store. A few years ago I went in to talk to the then owner, Deena Carouso and discovered it was so much more! Finders Keepers has been a partner with me to give the Bright Light Award to a deserving senior the past 2 years and I’m excited to share that they are on board for another year thanks to Allyssa Heiskell, the daughter of Deena and new owner of Finders Keepers.
I visited the boutique a few weeks ago to take some pictures to share with you just all that they have to offer. I absolutely love shopping there! Each time I walk in I’m greeted with a friendly smile and an immediate offer to help me with whatever I’m looking for. I went in last summer in hopes of finding a couple new outfits to shoot a wedding in and for array of bridal showers and baby showers I knew I’d be attending in the next months. Alyssa herself assisted me in finding the best dresses for me, not an easy task! She didn’t disappoint me when I went in again looking for a dress that I could not only shoot my sisters wedding in, but also look pretty in.
Here I am with my 2 little cuties at the wedding. The dress was perfect! No matter what the occasion- prom, homecoming, a wedding, military ball, or even just a cute summer sundress- Finders Keepers has something for you. One of the things I love when you walk in is that they have everything color coordinated, so if you know you are looking for a certain color no need to wade through a million different colors!
One of the other big things Finders Keepers is known for are their Polo hats! Polo will be here before you know it so you can head in and get yours first!And, if you know me you’ll know that purses are one of my favorite things. In fact the big quilted turquoise one just might have to come with me soon! I’ve fallen in love!Seniors- you really MUST make a stop at Finders Keepers before your senior session! They have the most perfect accessories for your pictures! Hello- sunglasses for just $10! Umbrellas, jewelry, hats, headbands, watches, they’ve got it all. Trust me you won’t be disappointed.Thanks so much Allyssa, for allowing me to share your beautiful shop and I wish you the best of luck this prom and polo season!
