Rachel's Rumors: Shop targets weekend shoppers

Posted: February 1, 2014 - 3:51pm

If you have been able to get around downtown lately, despite all the freezing temperatures and Seasonal Affective Disorder that a portion of you are no doubt suffering from at this point (believe me, I sympathize), you may have noticed a new place on Front Street next to Pasta Grill called The Mason Jar.

Right now the little boutique is only open Thursday through Saturday, but if you happen to mosey in there one weekend, you’ll find just the cutest assortment of jewelry, scarves and purses, with a little bit of home décor and some clothing thrown in. It’s a feast for the eyes. Timber Mosley is the owner of the establishment, which seriously looks like it stepped right out of someone’s Pinterest page. Stop by and visit her sometime.

That happened fast

The new Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen on East Oak Street is finished. Parking lot painted. Done. It opens Monday. If fried chicken is your thing, my job here is done. I have to say the building looks really nice, and apparently the turnout of job-seekers has been steady. Who could complain about that kind of new addition to the city?

Mexican place

Folks were really disappointed when Casa Mariachi (on Prince Street across from the high school) closed. However, I’m hearing a rumor that someone may be opening another Mexican restaurant there soon. I’ll follow up on the lead, and if it’s true, perhaps it might soothe some hurt feelings.

Antique mall

It looks like someone is opening a new antique mall on Court Street where the Salvation Army store used to be. I drove by and saw a sign but have not had the chance to look into it yet.

Game day

Happy big game day! I have to admit, I don’t have very much personally invested in the teams involved, but I do enjoy the commercials and the snacks. I wish you an enjoyable day, regardless of the final outcome.

Lovely little store

I visited the store Friday evening and was happy to see the variety of items she stocks and how reasonably priced everything was! Really hope that she sticks around downtown!

Confirming Casa Mariachi sale

Mr Pepe (Don Pepe) Castro and his sons Antionio and Ernesto, owners of Conway's finest (in my opinion) Mexican restaurant, Los Tres Potrillos, have in fact purchased what was Casa Mariachi and have begun to remodel it.

Note: I know great Mexican food because I'm known to eat it 14 times a week. I would be eating it 21 times a week but Don Pepe refuses to send his staff in early just to cook me breakfast. Tell them Juanito sent you.

The rumor I hear that goes

The rumor I hear that goes along with Diogenes confirmation, is that the new restaurant will be more of a fast food. I was told think like a Chipotle or Moe's Burritos.
