Businesses gear up for spring with open house
Some Baldwin businesses are hoping people will take the chance to get reacquainted with their stores this weekend.
Friday and Saturday mark Baldwin's spring open house for Cranberry Market, Vintage Flea, Discoveries and C. Designs Floral and Garden. The open house will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.
Both Cranberry Market and Vintage Flea have relocated and are looking forward to showing off their new stores.
"It's a chance to celebrate the new location," Lisa Robertson, Vintage Flea co-owner, said.
"It's a chance for us to show off our new place," Laurie Shuck, Cranberry Market owner, said.
The featured businesses will be offering a variety of sales, door prizes and refreshments, as well as a taste of spring.
"There will be new spring ideas," Shuck said. "It's fun to see spring after a long winter."
Linda Guss, Vintage Flea co-owner, said Baldwin residents should take the opportunity to see what the local businesses have to offer.
"There's a lot here they're maybe not aware of," Guss said.
Christy Carlisle, C. Designs owner, agreed and said Baldwin businesses are unique.
"Baldwin has a really eclectic mix that, to be honest, you can't get anywhere else," she said.
"We go out of our way to shop in Atlanta, Dallas and other places to bring back really neat things," she said. "So why travel a long way to get cool things? That's why we're here."
