To the Editor:

I was happy to read about the opening of Two Sisters Emporium, a new business in downtown Sycamore.  It is always exciting when a new business opens. However, I would like to correct the statement made by Rose Tremel of the Sycamore Chamber.  She said that there are no businesses in the area like Two Sisters Emporium.  

For 20 years, Made Just for You, also in downtown Sycamore, has been selling the work of local artisans.  We have supported local florists, woodworkers, painters, photographers, stitchers, knitters and crocheters, jewelry makers and many other types of artists.  In fact, supporting local craftsmen has been the focus of our business.

Another downtown business that also sells the work of local artists is The Sycamore Art Attack. They have a gallery attached to their classrooms that displays and sells the work of local artists, some of whom teach classes at Art Attack.

So the Two Sisters Emporium just increases the opportunities for local artists in a town that has been supporting local artists for years.  We welcome them to town and wish them great success.
