This comprehensive and attractive full-color magazine is distributed through the region and is used extensively by both tourists and locals alike. If you have not placed an ad for your business or service and would like to do so, there are just a few days left.

trade show acquisitions
Exciting new merchandise from the world-famous Gift and Furniture Mart in Las Vegas will soon be added to the inventories of two Quincy businesses, Quincy Hot Spot and Forest Stationers. The respective storeowners, DeeDee Driscol and Cheryl Reinitz, found the treasures on a recent buying (and we suspect fun-filled) trip.
At Quincy Hot Spot, DeeDee is adding the Best Home Furnishings line of furniture — initially couches, chairs and recliners with more down the road — and is currently renovating a portion of her East Quincy store to make room for the new arrivals. She said this is the same furniture line that was available at La Casa Bella before it closed.
Cheryl came back from Las Vegas with a new line of jewelry, handbags, jewelry boxes and other carefully selected gift items. Her store’s name, Forest Stationers, doesn’t begin to truly reflect the diversity of products she’s been adding over the years. This includes expanding her office supplies to diversifying with a vast array of unique and carefully selected gift items for virtually every member of the family.
