Business Scene for the week of Dec 14, 2016

This N That Drizzle in Chester

Stephanie and Bruce Hughes have opened a new cottage business in Chester called This N That Drizzle. Stephanie said she has been blending fresh ingredients to drizzle over ice cream, cakes, breads, pancakes and the like for her family and friends who convinced her it was so good she should market it — and now she is! It’s a pear-based blend of flavors that include blackberry, orange ginger or pineapple jalapeno with no added sugar and all natural ingredients. She is also known for her savory tomato-based salsas that she also sells. Call 258-3267 to place orders.

Enjoy a holiday Treat on us

In the spirit of the holiday season and as a way of saying thanks to our friends and patrons, my colleagues here at the Feather Publishing Co./ Feather River Bulletin office have once again set up a special customer appreciation table with lots of yummy treats beginning the week prior to Christmas, Monday, Dec. 19, through Friday, Dec. 23. So when you are out and about in Quincy, make a point to stop in at 287 Lawrence St. — we’ve saved a cookie or two for you.

Free yoga classes again offered

The ladies at Quincy Yoga and Wellness Center are once again offering a free yoga class in recognition of the Winter Solstice on Wednesday evening, Dec. 21, 5:30 ­– 6:45 p.m. Co-owner Jane Steidel invites you to join the teachers in a simple yoga practice and special candlelit celebration to welcome back the light. She said that all donations collected will be given to a local nonprofit organization to be selected by the participants.

Your money, your community!

What has become an annual tradition; Gary and Mary Vogt are giving a portion of their sales at American Valley Hardware on each of the last 10 days of the shopping season to local charities and worthy organizations. Beginning Dec. 15 and continuing through Dec. 24, a different group will be the beneficiary of 5 percent of that day’s sales. The 10 groups Gary and Mary have picked to receive the funds are listed in an ad in this week’s Feather River Bulletin and are also posted at the store. So, pick the groups you would like to help and plan your shopping accordingly. Better yet, shop the store daily and help all these worthy organizations!

Here’s a couple of gift giving ideas

When you think of Christmas gift giving one of the many names that should come to mind in the Quincy area is Forest Stationers on Main Street across from the courthouse. Bob and Cheryl have introduced a new line of boot, hiker and wool Wigwam socks for men and women. For your convenience, they are open Saturdays from 10-4 and on Sunday, Dec. 18, from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., for those last minute shoppers. Christmas cards, wrapping paper, gift bags and free gift-wrapping are also available. 

Here’s another great gift idea: Stylish “Thunderwear” — hoodies, tees and tank tops — from Patti’s Thunder Café. They also have gift certificates for those on your list who would enjoy a great breakfast or lunch from the ever-popular eatery on Lawrence Street in Quincy.

With the recent passing of Anna Parrish, the owner of Vintage Gardens in Portola, members of the White Sulphur Springs Ranch restoration project, which Anna actively supported, are encouraging folks to shop the store this holiday season. Some may remember that Anna lost her husband and then her son in very recent years and struggled by herself to keep the business going. For now it’s Anna’s sister who is running the store until it can be sold. Virtually everything in the store has been drastically discounted through Dec. 23.
