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.

  • As G20 chases growth goal, members differ on how to get there
    Financial leaders of the Group of 20 top economies remain committed to chasing higher global growth, but were divided on how to achieve it as Germany pushed back at calls from the United States and others for more immediate stimulus. Opening a meeting of G20 finance ministers and central bankers, Australian Treasurer Joe Hockey outlined on Saturday an ambitious agenda of boosting world growth, fireproofing the global banking system and closing tax loopholes for giant multinationals. "We have the opportunity to change the destiny of the global economy," said Hockey, who back in February launched a campaign to add 2 percentage points to world growth by 2018 as part of Australia's presidency of the G20. Just this week, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) slashed its growth forecasts for most major economies.
  • Dollar's rally bad news for oil, multinationals
    We are now seeing a new uptrend develop,” said Adam Sarhan, founder and CEO of Sarhan Capital in New York. If you’re a large tech company and you do a lot of business overseas, that’s not going to help you,” said Larry Glazer, managing partner at Mayflower Advisors in Boston. Lower oil prices favor the consumer, who can pocket the savings or spend the cash in stores.
  • Alibaba surges 38 percent on massive demand in market debut
    Alibaba Group Holding Ltd's (BABA.N) shares soared 38 percent in their first day of trading on Friday as investors jumped at the chance for a piece of what is likely to rank as the largest IPO in history, in a massive bet on China's burgeoning middle class. It was an auspicious debut for the Chinese e-commerce company, which was founded by Jack Ma in his apartment in 1999 and now accounts for 80 percent of online sales in China. About 100 people gathered outside the New York Stock Exchange at Wall and Broad Streets, many of them Chinese tourists with cameras, and they cheered and snapped photos when Ma exited the building with the kung fu star Jet Li. Some 271 million shares changed hands, more than double the turnover on Twitter Inc's (TWTR.N) first day last year, although still short of volume for the General Motors Co (GM.N) and Facebook Inc (FB.O) IPOs.
