A New Beginning

On Thursday 1st October, Marcella~Mia will be born.
A little history:
A store front gift shop that originally started out as "Home Industries" some 30 years ago by my mum, Marcella Parkhouse, then soon became the well known "Marcella's" about two years later, will now become "Marcella~Mia".
When my mum passed away in June 2008, she left behind a wonderful legacy for shoppers in the upper highway area and it has been a real yo-yo existence, trying to sort out her beloved shop, deciding what direction to take- sell, close down or continue.
Finally things have become clearer and combining mum's shop with mine of the past fifteen years, "Marcella~Mia" has evolved.

So this is an invitation to join us on Thursday 1st October for the official opening of "Marcella~Mia", a new concept to a fine tradition.
Time: 8-30am -5.30pm
