The Candlestick Maker has been a critical cog in the regeneration of the 400 block of State Street downtown, and Judi and her OFF! son, Ed Bennett have lead the way by logging many extended nighttime and weekend hours so that the many strolling visitors downtown could share in the myriad offerings you’ll find inside. The Candlestick Maker is described on its Facebook fan page as, “A smellebra-tion of good smellyness.” However, it’s far more than just clean-burning soy candles and melts from Woodwick, Beanpod, Cranberry Barn and others. You’ll also find many nautical gifts and decor, hand-wo-ven rugs from Goshen, Indiana , Beach Glass Jewelry, local photo cards, metal art from Elemental Image , lighthouse wall canvas prints, and crafts from more than a dozen local artisans. Judi was one of the origina-tors of the Finally Friday concept which brings special events to the central business district on the final Friday of every month downtown. She tells me that she’s espe-cially grateful to the hundreds of wonderful customers who spend their money locally and support small busi-nesses like hers. She adds that in the three years they’ve been downtown they’ve had more fun than they ever imagined possible, and are looking to even bigger and better things as people discover the magic of downtown St. Joseph. You’ll find The Candlestick Maker at 408 State Street downtown, and they are open 7-days a week all year round for your shopping pleasure and convenience. “Once upon a time in St. Joseph, Michigan, a land laden with white sandy dunes & quaint cafes,” begins the memoir, “there grew up a boy.” This boy, continues the story, “lived in a magical town, but slowly began to witness the unfortunate circumstances men, women and children found themselves in all over the world.” Those are the opening lines crafted by Austin Bock of St. Joseph. He and his wife Kelsey are establishing a new purpose driven business in the heart of downtown St. Joseph to sell fair trade goods and social justice mer-chandise. Having observed tragedies ranging from governmental slavery, to sex slavery, to oppression and abuse, Austin’s heart became sad and his zeal for justice was kindled. That’s when he went off to college and met Kelsey, “a girl who came from the nations and had that familiar spark for justice. As they grew, they learned what freedom unto the fullness of life looks like, and they got married.” After a year of markets, fairs and booths all over southwest Michigan and Indiana , Austin & Kelsey are moving into a brick & mortar location with a mini art gallery and cafe. They are targeting an April 18th open-ing for what they are calling Bound for Freedom . Located at 404 State Street in the central business district, There they will promote and support fair trade businesses and non-profits or artists that have a heart to redeem. All of the products at Bound for Freedom bring life, hope, and freedom to people found in slavery of all kinds around the world. They have committed to the pursuit of wholistic freedom by selling fair trade Ask about the benefi ts of a TEMPUR-Up™ base today! 5 royal See store for details on all offers. on Tempur-Pedic set purchases.

Moody On The Market

Pat Moody

Judi Benninghoff won’t have to travel far to find a handful of candles to light in celebration of her third anniversary in business. In fact, she can probably lean a foot or two in practically any direction and come up with plenty of choices as the big day approaches. Judi, you see, is the Chief Fragrance Officer at The Candlestick Maker in downtown St. Joseph. Sunday, will mark her 3rd Anniversary in St. Joe’s central business district and with hundreds of candles and many, many other gifts to select from, she can easily find three candles to light and even a treasure trove of gifts if she’s looking for presents to mark the occasion as well. The Candlestick Maker has been a critical cog in the regeneration of the 400 block of State Street downtown, and Judi and her son, Ed Bennett have lead the way by logging many extended nighttime and weekend hours so that the many strolling visitors downtown could share in the myriad offerings you’ll find inside. The Candlestick Maker is described on its Facebook fan page as, “A smellebration of good smellyness.” However, it’s far more than just clean-burning soy candles and melts from Woodwick, Beanpod, Cranberry Barn and others.You’ll also find many nautical gifts and decor, hand-woven rugs from Goshen, Indiana, Beach Glass Jewelry, local photo cards, metal art from Elemental Image, lighthouse wall canvas prints, and crafts from more than a dozen local artisans. Judi was one of the originators of the Finally Friday concept which brings special events to the central business district on the final Friday of every month downtown. She tells me that she’s especially grateful to the hundreds of wonderful customers who spend their money locally and support small businesses like hers. She adds that in the three years they’ve been downtown they’ve had more fun than they ever imagined possible, and are looking to even bigger and better things as people discover the magic of downtown St. Joseph. You’ll find The Candlestick Maker at 408 State Street downtown, and they are open 7-days a week all year round for your shopping pleasure and convenience.<br /> <br /> “Once upon a time in St. Joseph, Michigan, a land laden with white sandy dunes & quaint cafes,” begins the memoir, “there grew up a boy.” This boy, continues the story, “lived in a magical town, but slowly began to witness the unfortunate circumstances men, women and children found themselves in all over the world.” Those are the opening lines crafted by Austin Bock of St. Joseph. He and his wife Kelsey are establishing a new purpose driven business in the heart of downtown St. Joseph to sell fair trade goods and social justice merchandise. Having observed tragedies ranging from governmental slavery, to sex slavery, to oppression and abuse, Austin’s heart became sad and his zeal for justice was kindled. That’s when he went off to college and met Kelsey, “a girl who came from the nations and had that familiar spark for justice. As they grew, they learned what freedom unto the fullness of life looks like, and they got married.” <br /> <br /> After a year of markets, fairs and booths all over southwest Michigan and Indiana, Austin & Kelsey are moving into a brick & mortar location with a mini art gallery and cafe. They are targeting an April 18th opening for what they are calling Bound for Freedom.Located at 404 State Street in the central business district, There they will promote and support fair trade businesses and non-profits or artists that have a heart to redeem. All of the products at Bound for Freedom bring life, hope, and freedom to people found in slavery of all kinds around the world. They have committed to the pursuit of wholistic freedom by selling fair trade products and social justice merchandise, redemptive artwork, nutritional products, books and media with one purpose in mind -- To combat and raise awareness of global, local and national issues of injustice that plague our world today. Every purchase made from the new retailer goes directly to helping and supporting a cause they have selected to partner with. Whether it is giving sex trafficking victims a job or child soldiers a way out, every product sold moves to equip others toward freedom.You can learn more about Bound for Freedom and see some of the merchandise they will be carrying by going to www.boundforfreedom.org online before the store opens for business. The windows of the shop next door to Purely Michigan are currently papered over while renovations are made and the decor is set. Stay tuned for more. Here’s a direct link to their website in the meantime, where you can see a brief video showcasing many of the types of things they’ve been carrying at the Benton Harbor City Market: http://www.BoundForFreedom.org <br /> <br /> An eclectic couple with a broad range of culinary skills, knowledge and experience in virtually every aspect of the restaurant business is just a couple of weeks away from welcoming breakfast and lunch diners to their dynamic new space at the center of the Benton Harbor Arts District. Friends and family of Jayme Cousins and Abel Martinez have been tracking their progress for some time, and visitors to the recent Spring Art Hop in the District were greeted with menus from the upcoming place, and now they’re just waiting on mechanical issues like the kitchen hood-system and the like. Coming soon is The Mason Jar Cafe at 210 Water Street. That’s the space recently vacated by Revolution Design who moved to a greatly expanded site near the Saranac Flats project on Main Street.The Mason Jar will be a cozy space serving breakfast and lunch meals (with breakfast available all day) using locally sourced vendors as much as possible for the ultimate freshness and quality possible. Jayme worked for Chili’s for 11 years in virtually every capacity from server to manager, from bartender to cook and everything in between, including 7 years as the manager in St. Joseph. She says she simply has this crazy passion for the restaurant business. The same can be said for her talented husband, Abel Martinez who worked side-byside at the Bistro on the Boulevard in St. Joseph for 10-years with renowned Chef Ali Barker. Later he worked for two years as the Chef at Schu’s Grill & Bar in downtown St. Joseph. The two are very eager to get up and running soon. The Mason Jar Cafe will seat about 45 to 50 inside and additional seasonal seating will accommodate more outside when the weather permits.The cafe will be open from 7am until 3pm Monday through Friday and from 8am until 3pm on Saturdays and Sundays when set up is complete. The menu will include such things as housemade granola,buttermilk or gluten-free pancakes, the quiche of the day, stuffed French toast, build your own omelets, corned beef hash, vanilla bean waffles, traditional egg dishes, a vegetarian breakfast sandwich and more. For lunch, offerings will include grilled chicken sandwiches, turkey sandwiches, a roasted veggie sandwich, several other sandwiches, crab cakes, soups, salads and more. Lots of sides will be offered as well. I’ll keep you posted as opening day gets closer...but make plans now to keep an eye out for what looks to be a tremendous winning combination of locally sourced great food and talented artisans who are veterans in the business eager to show you what they can do daily in the house as you enjoy the Arts District. In the meantime...here’s a link to their online presence with further details: https://sites.google.com/site/themasonjar210cafe/home <br /> <br /> Las Vegas insiders will tell you if you’re looking for the best place for food and drink in Sin City, follow the path of the waiters, waitresses, bartenders, and even restaurant managers to their favorite watering hole well into the night. Now, Bobby Camp & Stacy Vermilyer are hopeful of capitalizing on that Vegas-style tradition by welcoming their fellow tradesmen and women every Monday through Thursday with deep discounts at The Mark III Grille & Bar in St. Joseph. Stacy put out the word recently on the restaurant’s Facebook page that The Mark III is officially launching “Industry Night” every Monday through Thursday night from 10pm until closing from now on. The wildly popular bar and restaurant “at the Scottdale crossroads,” of 4179 M-139 is angling to become a favorite for servers, bartenders, and other hospitality industry people about the time they are getting off duty for the night. Stacy tells me that The Mark III will offer a 25% discount on their entire bill between 10pm and closing each weeknight from Monday through Thursday. It’s a way to say thank you to their fellow tradespeople, and help them save some money in the process. She says she noticed an establishment in the Grand Rapids market was providing a similar offer and it was well-received by workers in the industry.<br /> <br /> She says that inasmuch as there is no industry-wide common ID format or badge-system, the crew at The Mark III will rely on the honor system and simply ask that hospitality workers identify their place of employment and the role they play when honoring the discount offer they are making to diners at their establishment.You can reach The Mark III at 429-2941 if you have any questions regarding the offer, and you can follow them on Facebook to learn of regular specials and other offers being showcased by the restaurant and bar.<br /> <br /> Rockie Rick’s big dream gets bigger every day... and now will sport action on both ends of Michigan’s West Coast. Rick is the owner and operator of Fruitful Vine Tours here in Michigan’s Great Southwest, and he’s taking the show on the road to Michigan’s Great Northwest as well beginning this spring. Rick is dispatching his Operations Manager Allen Zelmer to a new assignment in the Traverse City region to begin wine touring operations in that section of wine country in May. Zelmer’s task will be to launch tours of the Old Mission Peninsula neighborhood and other Northern Michigan wineries, but he will also be hiring and training tour guides to anchor the northern tier so that he can return to his home in southwest Michigan around Labor Day. Fruitful Vine Tours has just purchased two brand new 14-passenger coach buses from Goshen Coach in Indiana. That brings Rockie’s fleet of touring vehicles to six with four the buses tabbed as Vino-Coaches and two tractor-pulled open-air Wine-O-Wagons. With his full fleet operational, Fruitful Vine Tours can take over 80 people on wine tours on any given day now. Donald Marsh and Alan Tollas have joined the team’s fleet of drivers and tour guides bringing that team now to a total of eight as well. Rockie tells me that Wendy Bedell from Net Designs in St. Joseph has added all the changes and updates to the company’s website, which lists nearly a dozen wineries along the SW Michigan Wine Trail that can be visited and the 17 wineries along the Leelanau and Old Mission Peninsulas available for touring. Reservations can also be made through the site, and there’s a great deal of additional information included to help you plan your touring. You can also reach the company at 269-978-8777. Here’s a direct click-through link for you to the Fruitful Vine Tours site: http://www.FVTours.com <br /> <br /> About a year ago, financial troubles stemming from an embezzlement issue resulted in closure of St. Peter’s United Church of Christ in St. Joseph, and the church was put up for sale. Late last September, I told you about the birth of Berrien County’s newest church at that time, The Shore Church which had begun holding services in space at the Upton Middle School at 800 Maiden Lane. On October 20, 2013 the new church conducted a Grand Opening and Launch Service, welcoming new members into the fold. Pastor of The Shore Church, and Planter of that Church, Kevin Hester tells me the congregation has purchased the former St. Peter’s Church buildings and property at 623 Church Street in St. Joseph and will welcome former Detroit Tiger pitching star Frank Tanana to the pulpit for their re-launch service tomorrow, Sunday, April 6th, at 10:30am. The Shore Church and its sponsoring church from the Detroit area will be updating things on the inside and out and will continue to make positive changes in the weeks ahead. Previously, services were being conducted at Upton Middle School and offices were housed at 515 Ship Street in St. Joseph. Now, thanks to the real estate transaction through the assistance of the CORE Real Estate sales team of Loren Gerber and Earl Misch of Stevensville, all church activities, ministries, and offices will be under one roof and bring a permanent identity to the community.Pastor Hester tells me that there are many new programs starting up at the Church which plans to make a splash and a difference in the community. He adds that another special event will take place on May 4th at 10:30am as the Church hosts a Courageous Living Sunday and Law Enforcement Appreciation Day with a guest speaker Police Chaplain and author who was in the movie “Courageous.” You can learn more about The Shore Church and their mission by calling 269- 208-3844 or by logging onto www.theshorechurchmichigan. com.<br /> <br /> That’s it for this week, kids. Have a great week and we’ll see you Saturday right here in MailMax and online at www.MoodyOnTheMarket.com.<br /> <br /> Pat Moody<br /> Morning Radio Personality<br /> WSJM Radio<br /> moody@wsjm.com<br /> (269) 925-1111
