Judy Maxwell Adds Tea Service, Becomes Full Fledged Genrl Store

It's official: Judy Maxwell has turned into a general store, or as it says on the door "GENRL STORE". Naturally this was the most logical direction for the home goods store to grow in, and it only took two weeks to accomplish. After sourcing some really large old wooden cabinetry from Michigan, adding tea service with cookies and polishing up a wood-burning stove, the transformation is nearly complete. Last week, while we were shopping the 50% off Judith Lippmann nail polish on the sale table we noticed the two finches (named Hansel and Gretel) fluttering away in the bird cage and burlap starting to take over the walls. This week there's even more burlap, and now you can shop locally made honey with hand-applied letterpressed labels, Altruette jewelry ($75-$95), new candles and apothecary items. In the near future, we're told the cash wrap, which is an old ice cream soda jerk counter will be restored to be functional, allowing shoppers an array of olde timey sodas.
