Owner: Marsha Edwards
Let’s welcome to the Downtown blog Just Between Friends located in the heart of downtown Eureka. Owned and operated by Marsha Edwards , a hometown girl, this shop is chocked full of awesome name-brand gifts. Marsha grew up in Eureka Springs . Her father was an entrepreneur and a much-loved man in our fair town. She learned the art of a successful business management through his teaching and leadership. Marsha is quite the entrepreneur herself as she has owned a variety of businesses , all successful and diverse. She has been in business this coming April for 30 years ! As some of you may remember she owned several shops up at Pine Mountain before deciding to close them and downsize to one shop downtown.
So let’s talk about her awesome shop ! Come, walk through the front door with me and begin to take in the amount of inventory and color that greets your eyes. The first thing you notice on the right of the shop is the beautiful, hand embroidered state pillows. Of course Arkansas is right there at the front with Eureka Springs boldly standing out at the top. This line also has drinking glasses, towels and mini pillows , all which make a great gift to yourself to remind you of the great vacation you just had!
Going a little deeper into the store and we are met with Marsha’s pride and joy. Pandora Jewelry.
This giant of the jewelry industry shines with it‘s variety of gifts.
Of course they are famous for their charm bracelets.
You will find every charm under the sun here.
Marsha and her staff are happy to assist you in building your story in charms
or the perfect bracelet for a special loved one or friend. There is simply so much
in this line that one must go in and experience it. No lack of glitz and sparkle here!
As we head to the back of the store, we take notice of another major name brand line,Vera Bradley. Another giant in the industry which leads the way in handbag, travel accessories, totes and so much more. The fabric choices are fantastic and I can personally say that the quality is superb and rugged. Vera Bradley keeps the line fresh and up to date by retiring patterns and introducing new ones often. I love the totes (a girl cannot have to many totes!) and the wallet with the shoulder strap which allows you to carry light if you wish . The line comes in collections which allows you to match everything from the travel bags to the coin purse. Check it out and you will go home with something I bet.
I have shared with you 3 of the major lines at Just Between Friends,
but this boutique is a shoppers delight with so many other gift lines.
Candles, hats and hand creams are included in that mix.
So please go by and say hello to Marsha . Tell her that you read about her delightful shop here. And as always……………Shop small! Have a great time in Eureka Springs and I will see you on the sidewalks of our fair town!
