Since we last checked in with Racked 38 Member Judy Maxwell on North State Street, it had turned into a Genrl Store, ditching the 12-foot beach balls to add to add tea service, vintage lingerie, a wood burning stove, a sailboat and cabinetry from the hinterlands of Michigan.
This week, the stores summer look is being presented in its full glory throughout the shop. A summer tablescape featuring vintage milk glass (prices range from $25-$104), is the focal point to the store garnering more attention to the antique Italian candelabras ($600-$2,400). For the foodstuffs, Owner Joan Cusack and Fancy Pants Scott Goehring have found locally-made raw honey with hand written parchment-plastered labels ($10.25-$18.50), vintage cake stands ($58-$105), and vintage juicers ($15-$35).
In keeping with the stores commitment to stocking splurges for the self, they are now exclusively carrying a line of Dead Sea-derived luxury bath and body products by Jordan-based Trinitae. With lovely packaging and a scent the line is comprised of hand cream ($36), body lotion ($42), mud mask ($22), scented body loofah soap ($20), and gift sets from $108.
