The Emanon Shoppe is as interesting as its name.

Filled with gifts, collectibles, antiques, consignment resales and more, Marie Garcia's small place is a browser's paradise.

Her shop, located at 511 Fern St., is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday.

Boredom is not in Marie or her husband Ray's vocabulary. She has had many managerial positions and he has been a plumber for 50 years. They moved to Brookings from Joseph in 1993.

In addition to owning shops and boutiques for 15 years, Marie is a public notary and is able to write business plans and give grant writing assistance. She also gives financial and home buyer education and is experienced in Native American program assistance.

She can provide advice to help home buyers. She will soon be scheduling fall classes in homeowner/financial assistance programs.

"Knowledge is power," she said of her coming classes. She plans to keep them small so "detail can be attended to."

Currently, she is sponsoring a drawing to be held at the grand opening of her shop on June 22. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the Oasis Shelter Home in Gold Beach.

There will be three items given as prizes to the winning ticket holders. Tickets are 3 for $1.00 and the winners don't have to be present to win.

And the name of the store, she explained, is the words "no name" spelled backward.

She can be reached by phoning (541) 469-0929 or (888) 936-2666.

  • Factory activity in Europe, Asia cools; demand lull a concern
    BANGALORE/SYDNEY (Reuters) - Factory activity in Europe and Asia cooled in August after a strong July, as new orders dwindled in the face of escalating tensions in Ukraine and a patchy recovery in China, purchasing managers indexes showed. Despite euro zone manufacturers barely raising their prices, growth in the region slowed slightly more than initially thought, and activity in China's vast factory sector slackened on weak foreign and domestic demand, stoking speculation that further policy stimulus would be needed. "A concerted slowdown in the China, euro zone and UK manufacturing PMIs as the second quarter gets under way raises alarm bells about global demand conditions," said Lena Komileva, chief economist at G+ Economics in London.
  • Investors look past Ukraine, focus on ECB
    World markets advanced on Monday despite the conflict in Ukraine, focusing on whether the European Central Bank will announce plans for economic stimulus when it meets this week. Ukraine reported its forces were under fire from Russian tanks again on Monday, as new signs emerged that the turmoil was damaging the European economy. Latin American stocks mostly rose, with Brazil's benchmark Bovespa index (.BVSP) leading gains after an opinion poll showed declining re-election chances for President Dilma Rousseff, accused by investors of being excessively interventionist in the economy. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko accused Russia on Monday of "direct and undisguised aggression", after warning over the weekend of a possible "full-scale war."
  • China's Li Ning stumbles from gold medal position to no man's land
    In 2010, former Chinese gymnast Li Ning led a surging $4 billion sportswear business, a gold-medal pinnacle echoing his victories at the 1984 Olympic Games. Now, the Li Ning (2331.HK) business is more reminiscent of the ex-sportsman's exit from the 1988 Olympics without a podium finish. As customers have turned to aspirational global brands like Nike Inc (NKE.N) or cheaper local firms, Li Ning has racked up heavy losses, losing four-fifths of its market value.
