What a neat place. We took a tour of this business located in the warehouse section of Cedar Rapids. You would never know it was there. They do have a little store front to sell products out of. They are a big nation wide producer of lip balm. Promotional give a-ways are their big thing. Check your tube of lip balm from Mercy Hospital or your dentist. Could have been made by Raining Rose. They also make soaps and lotions. All of their products are on the healthy side. All natural. The folks that work there are great!
This is a neat little store on the grounds where the Brucemore Mansion is located. They have moved the store out of the house and into the Carriage house now. There is a neat display explaining the history of the family in the room next to the store. You have plenty of time to browse the store and gallery before you take the guided tour at appointed times.
This owner makes some very nice pieces. It is more a piece of artwork some of the necklaces and bracelets that are created. You really have to see them to appreciate them. She will custom create a piece for you as well. You can find her at many craft shows as well as get items from her in the mail. She is a very friendly and outgoing gal!
The gentleman that works there is very friendly and will tell you what you want to know. Do not be hung up on name brands like Orek if you want a light weight vacuum. Their biggest seller is a powerful, light weight vac by Riccar ($279 and $379). Very nice. He will service the vac for free for the life of the warranty right there in the store! He carrier vacuums ranging in price from $129 to $1200. Occasionally you will find a used model.
He services sewing machines here, but doesnt sell them unfortunately.
PROS: free parking
Soy B Lite has been creating soy candles for over a year now. They have many scents in their line currently. I think I counted about 50 scents. My favorite is the carmel pecan pie and harvest spice. Especially for the holiday season these are great! Plus many other scents for the summer months!
They have just added on air freshners that last around 2-3 months. This is a great alternative to the candle flame when you would really like to have your favorite smell at work. These are great to have at the office, in your crafting room, bathroom, and in your car or where ever else you can think of.
Soy B Lite does ship anywhere, so contact them today!
This is a quaint little store just off 10th Avenue in Marion. There is limited parking, but you can easily notice this store when you are heading out of downtown Marion on 7th Avenue.
Being a popcorn fan, this is a must for all of us. The atmosphere is great and they make you feel comfortable. Ask for a sample so you do not end up with something you do not like.
I recommend the Carmel corn. Very tasty!
