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.
