Ma Chere Claire boutique opens in Ye Crimpers Shoppe

20160211_112658Downtown Tiffin’s Ye Crimpers Shoppe is expanding its offerings by partnering with Ma Chere Claire, a boutique that sells clothing, accessories, jewelry and more. Customers can now stop by for salon services and browse the boutique at the back of the shop, located at 191 Jefferson St.

Owner of Ye Crimpers Shoppe Gina Raneiri and Ma Chere Claire owner Heather Hunker are both excited about the new partnership. “I decided this past summer to start a business, and I intended to open a storefront downtown in a couple years. I didn’t anticipate going downtown so soon, but Gina is so willing to help and it’s a great transitional spot in my career,” Heather said.

Heather Hunker started her online clothing boutique out of her home in August of 2015. Shortly after that, Susan Wilkinson of Simply Susan’s approached Heather about displaying some of her clothing in her store. Heather said that she will continue serving customers online, now with an option for in-store pick up.

Heather recently attended an apparel market in Atlanta and is planning a new lineup of products for Spring. New items will include Coco + Carmen apparel and accessories, Jadelynn Brooke clothing, and new jewelry, purses, shoes and sandals.

Ye Crimpers Shoppe has been in the same location since 1978. Gina left her job at A Cut Above The Rest to take over the shop three years ago. “I heard from a client that the owner was looking to retire, so I stopped by the salon to talk to her and voila, I was a business owner!,” Gina said.

Ye Crimpers is a full-service salon, offering facials, full body waxing, massage therapy, a wide variety of manicures and pedicures, as well as hair services and products, and much more.

Downtown Tiffin businesses offer “Trick or Treat”

Downtown Trick or TreatA new Tiffin Halloween event, the 1st Annual Downtown Trick or Treat is slated for Friday, Oct. 30 from 3:30-5 p.m. More than 60 businesses, organizations and offices all over downtown Tiffin will be opening their doors to provide candy to children. Afterward, Tom Rodgers Flowers will have cider and donuts for adult trick or treaters from 5-6 p.m.

Organizer Yolanda Gonzales got the idea from a similar event in Owensboro, KY, where she used to live. “It was a win for the community, businesses got positive exposure, kids got candy, caretakers learned more about their community and it was daylight. I found myself entering business that I would not normally go into – it was a wonderful way to meet businesses in town – also meet the people who own the businesses and  people who work there,” she said. “So, I contacted Mr. Montz with the idea and he said it was a great idea – but he needed someone to coordinate it.  I volunteered.”

Gonzales was greeted with excitement and enthusiastic responses from downtown businesses and hopes to make this an annual event. “The owners of Cabin Creations said they used to do this downtown – but no one else remembers.  I hope this becomes a new tradition for Tiffin.”

The following organizations are scheduled to participate, as well as businesses displaying a flyer in the window during the event:
