A transition is taking place at 513 Chetco Ave. in Brookings.

Judy's Resale, a popular clothing store located at that address, is closing it's doors to re-open as Angel's Nest.

Nancy Fair, proprietor of Judy's Resale, is behind the change,which will be complete sometime in February.

The owner of Judy's Resale for four years, Fair decided earlier in the year to close the store for a variety of reasons. She cited a "gradual drop-off" in customers as one reason for the change.

"If I knew that there would be a payoff in summer, I would have considered staying open as Judy's Resale," Fair explained, "The tourists just didn't come last summer."

Changing the name of her store and diversifying what she sells is her plan to stay in business.

Angel's Nest will be full of "fun things," according to Fair, including home decor, furniture, pictures, clothing and jewelry.

The items will be a mix of new and gently used. "There will be no junk." Fair explained. A portion of the store's profits will go Haven of Hope women's shelter in Brookings.

Fair said she enjoyed and appreciated her many customers and looks forward to visiting with them again soon.

She said the store will be "closed down a couple of weeks" and then will reopen under its new name sometime in February.
