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.

  • Europe rides rebound as global sell-off abates
    World stocks hit a nine-month low on Friday but oil and southern European bonds were off their week's worst levels, as investors began to dust themselves off after one of the most volatile spells in world markets in years. Bourses in London (.FTSE), Frankfurt (.GDAXI) and Paris (.FCHI) started the day up 1 to 1.5 percent and Athens (.ATG) rose 4.5 percent as Greek governments bonds steadied after their worst run since the height of the euro crisis in mid-2012. The possible return to recession in the euro zone, a floundering economy in Japan, slowdown in China and the Ebola virus outbreak have conspired to rattle investors already fretting about the end of years of U.S. It has been a fourth straight week of stock market falls in the U.S.
  • Goldman curbs bankers' compensation even as revenue surges
    Top Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N) executives are determined to keep compensation costs under control. On Thursday, Goldman reported a 25 percent increase in quarterly revenue, but the money it set aside for compensation and benefits rose only 18 percent from the same period a year earlier. The amount of money it has set aside for compensation is more or less unchanged, as is the average compensation per employee, at around $320,000 for the first nine months of the year. Sources familiar with the matter inside Goldman Sachs described the restraint as a sign of the shifting mentality about bonuses at the bank: it wants to tightly control compensation, even if it has good quarters with big revenue gains.
  • Google's revenue falls short despite curbing price declines
    Google Inc's revenue fell short of Wall Street's expectations as growth in Internet advertising slowed in the most-recent quarter, offsetting a modest improvement in ad pricing, sending its shares down about 3 percent. Shares of Google fell 2.7 percent to $510.11 in extended trading on Thursday. Google posted $16.52 billion in revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared to $13.75 billion in the year ago period. On Thursday, Google announced it had appointed Omid Kordestani its new chief business officer, replacing Nikesh Arora, who had departed a quarter ago to join Japan's Softbank Corp. The chief business officer is considered a key position, overseeing all the company's revenue-generating activities and serving as a liaison to investors and Wall Street.
