She has just successfully relocated her women’s retail and upscale consignment shop to the heart of downtown St. Joseph. Jen originally estab-lished her storefront in the Uptown Building at 1109 Main Street several years ago, and then moved last summer to a larger space in the Panera Bread complex at Hollywood and Niles. Now, you will find her colorful Pure Style store at 400 State Street just up the block from the new Buck Burgers and Brew . Pure Style offers high-end designer women’s clothing without the high-end designer pricing. You can find name brands like True Religion, Juicy Couture, Coach, Joes Jeans, Tiffany & Company, and many others. As has become Jen’s hallmark in the consignment arena if you’re not wearing your fashions you might as well make some money off of them by bringing them for consign-ment sale opportunities. She is currently accept-ing spring and summer items in the shop which is open from Monday through Saturday from 11am until 6pm and Sundays from noon until 4pm. She also carries Passion for Pearls jew-elry, so get ready to swing by and check out the new shop for yourself. You can reach Jen at 429-1272. Congratulations on your new shop, Jen… and best of luck in your new location. A couple of good friends and business part-ners have teamed up for a new coffee shop in Harbor Country . Its official, the new business called Joe Mama’s is now open in downtown Three Oaks. Entrepreneurs Tabitha Gurley and Missy Stanisz share a passion for home-made goods and coffee and they decided that the timing was right when an available space popped up at 11 S. Elm Street across from Drier’s , and they decided to go for it. It’s the space that was formerly home to Bella Via Market, next to French Twist. They describe the new space as perfect for their venture which features coffee, espresso drinks, fresh raw juices, homemade treats and food. Missy tells me that they want Joe Mama’s to be “fun and funky,” since they both have pretty crazy senses of humor. You’ll find Joe Mama’s open seven days a week with hours based on the season of the year. You can learn more online at www.JoeMammasJoe.com or on Facebook as well. Missy, by the way, is also the President of the Michiana Chapter of the American Marketing Association. Congratulations, ladies! I told you recently about the Fifth Third Bank Venture Fund through the Cornerstone Alliance Small Business Services team. Well, the first loan from that fund has been made to a new business owned by Lametra Wray. While she is actually retired, she has enjoyed a substan-tial hobby over the past couple of decades and she now looks forward to turning that hobby into a profitable small business. Her new business has the unique name of Search Party. Dating back to the 1980’s, Ms. Wray has been research-ing the genealogy of her friends and family. Continued on page 8 M oody Pat Continued from page 1 Now, thanks to the Fifth Third Bank Venture Fund, she has been successful in purchasing software and framing tools to both uncover fam-ily histories and then preserve them in frames and shadowboxes. Search Party is currently home-based in Ms. Wray’s home in Dowagiac. She is clearly quite prolific in her “new” venture, since she currently enjoys a 99% success rate in heredity searches, even among the more chal-lenging African and Native American charts that frequently lack reliable public records. She has even found access to slave schedules and immigrant records assisting in her more chal-lenging searches. In addition to standard family charts, Search Party can include family photos and various legal documents sized to each chart. Congratulations, Lametra…and best wishes for continued success.

The cast and crew at Tan Unique are offi-cially setting aside the last vestiges of the eco-nomic crunch by diversifying and expanding their salon services beyond just tanning. Owner Terry James tells me that she has added a full body red light therapy bed as well as a Lumiere facial machine. Both devices have created quite a buzz for skin rejuvenation. Her latest addition of a far infrared sauna for detoxification, enhanced immune system health, weight loss and cellulite control also brings stress and pain relief and the ultimate in relax-ation.

The weekend of April 20th, 21st and 22nd they have a special event called “Freshen the Front Door,” showcasing more than 150 wreaths for spring.

His collaboration with Iowa-based musical artist Kate Sharrard is a delightful capture that shares a number of local settings in Benton Harbor and St. Joseph along with a great tune, “How Did I Get This Love From You.” It’s the story of a modern woman who has gained the affection of an unwanted suitor, and immediately brings a smile to your face as you float through the mini-adventure. If you haven’t already seen the piece first hand, log onto YouTube using this address: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fp06eJB-Fhg. If it doesn’t work, just search for Kate Sharrard on You Tube and you should get it. Nice work Dave and Kate. Good luck!<br /> <br /> Folks at the Silver Beach Hotel are cranking up plans for a “Spring Fling Wine & Art Festival” on Saturday, April 21st from 2pm until 10pm. Featuring live music by Mike Struwin and others, the event will showcase local artists and jewelry designers, an appetizer bar, and wines from Contessa Winery, Domaine Berrien, Free Run, Karma Vista, Lemon Creek, Round Barn, St. Julian, White Pine, Founders and Gravity Cellars. Advance tickets can be purchased at the hotel’s front desk. April is Michigan Wine Month. The same festival event will be reprised on Memorial Day Weekend, May 26th, when the Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid is in town.<br /> <br /> More good news for Edward Jones according to local senior branch office administrator Sue Blanchard. The financial services firm has once again topped the J.D. Power rankings for Advisor Satisfaction. Congratulations!<br /> <br /> With so many lives touched by cancer these days, sometimes just finding a ride to obtain treatment can make a lifesaving difference to cancer patients undergoing treatment in our community. Lack of transportation often leaves cancer patients with few options for completing treatment regimens. You can help make a huge difference for someone like that by contacting Ann Moenke, Health Initiatives Coordinator for the American Cancer Society. She is recruiting volunteers for the Road to Recovery program to drive cancer patients to and from their treatment. All you need is a few hours a week and a desire to make a difference. If you would like to help out, call anytime to 800-227-2345. Please help if you can, because there are currently not enough drivers around to help meet the requests for assistance. Thanks for whatever you can provide.<br /> <br /> We’re just two weeks away from the 2nd Annual Brookview School 5K Run on the campus of Brookview School in Benton Harbor. Early registration is strongly suggested for the event which benefits both the school and the Fired Up! After school program at Water Street Glassworks. Call 269-925-3544 to register soon.<br /> <br /> That’s it for this week, kids. Happy Easter! Look for a fresh new edition of Moody on the Market in your MailMax next Saturday!<br /> <br /> Pat Moody<br /> Executive Vice President of Cornerstone Chamber of Commerce<br /> pmoody@cstonealliance.org<br /> 269-925-6100 ext. 216
