Office Spaces, For Rent, Starboard Center, Bethany Beach, Delaware, Delaware Beaches, Southern Delaware

For many years Bethany Beach has been known as one of the quiet resorts.  For many of us that have been in the area for many years and have seen it grow, there is nothing quiet anymore. It is vibrant and it is full of life.  All you have to do is come visit at different times of the year to see how this small town has grown so much.  People come to these beach towns because it is a way of getting out of the cities.  The Delaware Beaches are so popular now, not only to vacation but to live here and establish new businesses.

The Starboard Center is located at 32892 Coastal Highway, Bethany Beach, DE 19930.  There are 6 business offices located in this very centrally and accessible location.  One of the offices, Suite 3, is 460 square feet.  It looks pretty nice and it is ready for rent.  The other office is 725 square feet and will be ready in a few weeks. CAM charges are very reasonable, plenty of parking too.

For more information, please contact Joe Maggio Realty at 302-539-5500.

What perfect way to start in a new office for the New Year.

Make that call to Joe Maggio Realty at 302-539-5500, and see for yourself.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Out & About, The Bungalow on 2nd, Lifestyle Boutique, Lewes, Delaware, Shopping, Shop Local, Small Business Saturday, November 24th, Delaware Beaches, Historic Lewes, Holiday Shopping

 

I was out and about with a friend on Second Street in Lewes, Delaware.  The Fall is the time for us “locals” to get out and see what is new.  A relaxed way of discovering the town.  No parking, which makes a big difference. My friend, Madelon, and I loved the storefront of this boutique that we had not noticed in the past.  It is called The Bungalow on 2nd.  Second Street is really Main Street in Lewes.

I am sure some of you will disagree but I find boutique shopping the most comfortable way to shop.  These shops in small towns all over the United States give clients the opportunity to get to know the store owners. You get a one on one service.

The young woman behind the counter I had to engage in conversation.  If you were in a big mall that usually does not happen.  No time for small talk, really.  Her name is Kaitlin and she has been opened for just about 6 weeks or so.  The shop is adorable; so very well appointed.  The store is not crowded and she has done a great job in redoing the shop.  Before starting this new venture she was a 9th grade teacher.  It would be great for you to stop by and welcome her to the community.  The Bungalow on 2nd is located at 142 2nd St., Lewes, DE 19958.  Tel. 302-644-1544

You can find clothing, presents for friends and family and, of course, a little indulgence for yourself, as well.

There is nothing like the right accessory to enhance an outfit.  You can find necklaces, earrings, and bracelets for all tastes.

Clean looks, napkins, table runners, candles, home accents…..all very pretty and affordable.

November 24th it is called Small Business Saturday.  Obviously, we live in small coastal towns and promoting the local businesses is something a lot of us find dear to our hearts.  We wish Kaitlin much success and look forward to stopping by again.

Until then, have a good one!!

Christine’s Consignments, Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, Women’s Clothing, Men’s Clothing, Jewelry, Handbags, Shoes, Housewares, Resales, Modern, Chic, Consignment Shopping, Southern Delaware, Delaware Beaches, Rehoboth Beach Annual Sidewalk Sales are this Weekend!!

I have been on a roll….purging my closets, getting organized.  Why do we accummulate so much stuff?  It is true, that if you have not worn it or used it for a couple of years, then donate it to someone that can enjoy it. With that thought in mind and with the other thought that “someone’s trash is another person’s treasure”, I kept packing bag after bag.  The Thrift Shop at Midway Shopping Center on Coastal Highway was not taking anymore clothing; only shoes, bags and other items. There is another one on the Forgotten Mile run by the Episcopal Church.  Since then I have found out that there are plenty of other shops in the area. People have the same thoughts at this time of the year.

A few friends suggested I take some of my things to a consignment shop.  That they do and enjoy getting that extra cash in their pockets.  I started thinking about it and that is how I ended up calling Christine’s Consignments. This cute little shop is located at 200-A Rehoboth Ave., in Downtown Rehoboth Beach, DE. Tel. 302-226-1126.  If you decide you would like to take some of your treasures that you no longer need to Christine’s, please give them a call so that you can make an appointment.  At the time of the appointment you can bring your goodies so they can go through them. And please don’t take it personal if they don’t choose everything you brought that you thought was the best.  Seasonal things is what they want and they want them to be in good shape and worthy of resale.  If you keep that in mind you will do great.

Just like in any shop the clothing is divided in sections.  There are new arrivals and also designer clothing racks.

This weekend in Downtown Rehoboth Beach are the much awaited and very well attended Sidewalk Sales.  Hope you can make it.  All weekend long, you will be able to get tremendous discounts, and find fabulous accessories. These sales start today, Friday, May 18th and continue through Sunday, May 20th, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. but some store hours may vary.  Please check that out.  It is going to be a rainy weekend but do not worry those sales are here to stay. Tax free shopping in Delaware!!

Christine’s Consignments has another location at 42 Atlantic Ave., in Ocean View, near Bethany Beach. That telephone is 302-829-1425.

If you are bringing some of your treasures to Christine’s Consignments once they have gone through the items you will be given a number.  And you will also sign a very simple contract.  You should give them time to sell your items.  And, you can discuss with them what you would like to do if items are not sold.  They do donate to the local charities things that are not sold.

Like any other shop, items come and go quickly.  The inventory is always changing.  So probably is not one of those shops that you would likely say “I have been there already”.  Always something new at very good prices. You are spending time at the beach and let’s say you forgot your accessories, Christine’s Consignments would be perfect to grab that item that will finish your look.

I hope you have a great weekend.  Good luck finding your treasures!! Give them a chance second time around!
