Bakery changing hands, getting facelift

Posted: August 2, 2014 - 2:03pm

Word on the street is that Ed’s Custom Bakery, which just switched hands not too long ago, is getting new owners again. But this time the new owners are changing a few things.

Clare Crafton Tolleson and Kari Richardson are the new owners. They plan on completely remodeling the place and staying open in the process. They are also going to roll out some new products in addition to all the traditional favorites. That’s right. The smiley face cookies aren’t going anywhere.

Look for a grand reopening of Ed’s Bakery in about a month.

Children’s boutique open on Parkway

Leigh-Ann’s Children’s Boutique opened about a week ago on Parkway near Oak Street. It is in the building that Jeff Brooks recently remodeled, and his wife, Kathy Brooks, is the owner. The name is borrowed from the middle names of two of their grandchildren.

Kathy said they are getting ready to welcome their eighth grandchild into the world, and she has always enjoyed buying nice clothes for them. With so many to buy for, she thought she might as well open a store. She will have clothing and accessories for girls and boys from newborn to age 14 or 15, she said. They have baby registry and gift cards. They also have American Girl doll outfits with matching clothes for the child.

Kathy said they are planning a special promotion. Every month the person who purchases the most at the store will receive a slide bracelet from Brooks Fine Jewelry. Good hunting, ladies. 

Print shop closes

After almost 40 years in business Insta Print, located at 1513 Washington Ave., closed Friday, Owner Dwight Lawrence is retiring, and Hendrix College is buying the building. ECS Printing, also on Washington Ave., is taking over Insta Print accounts and will continue serving its customers. Tim Stone and Roger Lewis own ECS printing.

Sad to say goodbye

Blue Kite Boutique has put up signs announcing that it is becoming an online-only business. It will be so sad not to see them in downtown anymore. But I wish the Stanton family much happiness in this new journey of life.

There was more I wanted to get to this week, but I simply ran out of time. Come back next week, and hopefully I will have something exciting for you.

Gut & remodel

I just happened to eat there the last day they were open, and the employees told me what's going on. The building is being completely gutted and remodeled. It's also getting expanded a bit, out to the poles on what was the entryway. They said it could take anywhere between two and six months before they reopen.
