Grannie’s Boutique opens

Published: Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012 5:30 a.m. CST

Are you in the market for a gift or some lovely seasonal or household items? Do you like handmade items such as afghans, baby blankets or kitchen towels? Do you like to shop locally while supporting a good cause?

Grannie’s Boutique celebrated its grand opening on Oct. 15 with a ribbon-cutting. The shop, part of Fox Valley Older Adult Services, located in the Fox Valley Community Center in Sandwich, was the idea of the ladies’ craft group to provide an outlet for some of their handcrafted items and to offer a selection of gift and household items.

The shop offers new items, as well as some donated gently used ones. Are you looking for a way to get rid of some of your gently used seasonal items, household items or jewelry? Consider donating them to Grannie’s Boutique where all proceeds go toward programs and services for seniors in DeKalb, Kane, Kendall and LaSalle counties.

Located at 1406 Suydam Road in Sandwich, Grannie’s Boutique is open from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday.

To find out more about FVOAS and how to participate in programs and help them in their vital mission, contact the director of marketing & grants, Susan Thanepohn, at 815-786-9404.
