Summer at Candy’s Cottage
The beaches are jammed, the temperature is way up, so it must mean summer is in full swing! Here at Candy’s Cottage, we are busy with lots of customers, beach goers and tourists stopping in to check out all our new merchandise! This time of year means lots of parties, beach days and backyard BBQ’s, and we’ve got all the essential fun stuff to keep the party rolling! Lots of coastal barware with fun designs like etched starfish, palm trees and fish complement your wine, martini or beer much better than a plastic cup!! Our great aluminum coastal-themed serve ware is the perfect way to dish out your summer fare. I really love our aluminum boat server with two spoon “paddles.” I had a customer buy it for a big summer party and she put shrimp, cocktail sauce & lemons in each of the compartments. She said it was the hit of the party!
Don’t forget about the inside of your house – we’ve got some real stunners in our pillow department. All fun and colorful, our new pillow line will really add some summer punch to your couch or bed. The new line debuts very soon on the website, so stay tuned!
Now some really big news: Candy’s Cottage was a featured article in the July issue of NEW JERSEY MONTHLY MAGAZINE! It’s a great piece that gives some background on how I started my business and describes all the custom, handmade shell items made onsite here at the shop, as well as other coastal home decor items that are in stock. Page two shows some our most popular products like our fabulous cast iron mermaid line, shell encrusted letters that spell “BEACH,” capiz shell windchimes, gorgeous flower lights and my personal favorite item, our handmade shell and coral 3-tiered chandelier. Check it out – on newsstands now! And if you don’t live in NJ, here’s a micro version below!
Also exciting….our fabulous mermaid line was featured on a recent episode of David Tutera’s MY FAIR WEDDING on WE tv!! The bride wanted an “under-the-sea” wedding and David called because he saw our fabulous selection of mermaids in every possible pose! The perfect decor for a mermaid themed wedding! Stay tuned – the episode airs this fall. I’ll let everyone know the date when the show finishes editing.
Lots of good stuff here at Candy’s Cottage – come check it out – in store or online! HAPPY SUMMER!!
