Business Scene for the week of 10/26/16
FUNDRAISER FOR FIRE VICTIMS
Amy and Frank Carey and Susan Ushakoff, the respective owners of Quincy Provisions, located across from the fire department at the corner of Lawrence and Bradley which is home to Carey Candy Co., Bell Lane Baked Goods, and Brew haha, are having a fundraiser Saturday, Oct. 29, from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Twenty-five percent of all sales from each business for the day will be donated to the Lee family, who lost their home in a devastating fire on Tuesday morning, Oct 18. So stop by and treat yourself to something from their delectable selection of chocolates, candy, baked goods, pastries, pies, cakes and assorted coffees and specialty drinks, or have a breakfast or lunch bite to eat or buy something from their huge selection of gifts and novelty items all the while knowing you’ll be helping a good, longtime local family in their time of need.
GIFT BUYING IN THE WINDY CITY
Cheryl Reinitz went to Chicago for the StyleMax gift show, which she says completes her shopping for new inventory for the holidays. The new products for Forest Stationers in downtown Quincy will be featured at the Quincy Holiday preview Saturday, Nov 5.
She, like so many of our merchants, went way out of her way to find a selection of merchandise to help you fill your gift giving shopping list.
So, if you are not regularly taking a look at what’s available in the vast majority of our stores throughout Plumas County then you really don’t know the extent to which they shop for treasures that can be found in terms of price, selection and service. Besides, isn’t it just fun to roam around your hometown as well as the neighboring towns in the county? It’s not only fun, but also profitable, too, in so, so many ways!
WE’RE BACK! ANTIQUES & ARTISANS
Now through Christmas, Antiques & Artisans is once again open in downtown Quincy across from the Courthouse. Shoppers will be delighted with the nice selection of handmade jewelry, lotions, soaps and other handcrafted items along with a unique selection of hard-to-find antiques and collectibles. The store will be open daily beginning Nov. 1.
PAWS ANNUAL PRIZE GIVEAWAY
There is still time to buy a ticket for a chance to win some terrific prizes — afghans, jewelry, household items and small appliances — benefiting PAWS, the Plumas Animal Welfare Society. The drawing will be held on Halloween, Monday, Oct. 31. Tickets, six for $5, are still available from the PAWS facility on East Main Street in East Quincy.
CRESCENT HOTEL’S SPECIAL OPENING
Mat Fogarty, new owner of the Crescent Hotel in Crescent Mills, has planned a special Halloween event to mark the beginning of his tenure as owner of this historic hotel and restaurant. On Saturday, Oct. 29, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., the hotel becomes a scary albeit entertaining haunted house with live music and dancing, a costume contest and a costume contest for dogs.
