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.

  • Buffett celebrates 50th year at Berkshire, faces tough questions
    Berkshire Hathaway Inc shareholders on Saturday celebrated Warren Buffett's 50th anniversary running the conglomerate, as the billionaire expressed optimism the company would thrive over the long haul, even after he is gone. Buffett and his second-in-command, Charlie Munger, fielded five hours of questions from shareholders, analysts and journalists at Berkshire's annual meeting, including some that criticized the business practices of firms that Berkshire owns or works with, such as Brazil's 3G Capital. Berkshire holds more than 80 companies including the Burlington Northern railroad, Geico car insurance, Benjamin Moore paint, Dairy Queen ice cream, Fruit of the Loom underwear, and See's candies, and owns more than $115 billion of stocks. Its breadth and depth, which includes $63.7 billion of cash, has given Berkshire a strong balance sheet that Buffett said will help it thrive should the economy, propped up by low interest rates that many expect to rise soon, heads south.
  • McDonald's faces 'show me' moment with new CEO strategy
    McDonald's new Chief Executive Steve Easterbrook is set to unveil his plan on Monday to revive growth as the world's largest hamburger chain struggles to win back consumers and investors. He'll be aiming to persuade people such as Janna Sampson, co-chief investment officer at OakBrook Investments, which bought McDonald's (MCD.N) shares on the cheap more than a decade ago and eventually held more than 7 million shares as the company spiffed up its restaurants, improved service and expanded its menus with things like fancy coffee, salads and wrap sandwiches. The firm favors companies that dominate their industries, as McDonald's still does. Most financial analysts who cover McDonald's are on the sidelines.
  • Greece cites progress in talks with EU/IMF lenders, aims for May deal
    Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras's three-month-old government is under growing pressure at home and abroad to reach an agreement with European and IMF lenders over reforms to avert a national bankruptcy. "There were very important steps made at the Brussels Group (talks) which bring an agreement nearer," the official said, declining to be named. The talks between technical teams from Athens and EU/IMF/ECB lenders are expected to resume on Monday, the official said after the country's chief negotiators met with Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras. Athens hopes that a successful conclusion of the negotiations at the so-called Brussels Group could lead to recognition of the progress by the Eurogroup of euro zone finance ministers and bring some liquidity relief.
