Evelyn's...



I missed a week of My Town so I am doing two at once. It wasn't hard to combine two weeks as not only is Evelyn's my favorite shop in town, I am thankful for it being here and for the wonderful family that owns and operates it and for the friendship they have given us through the years.




Bereley Linder, who owns Evelyn's is one of the nicest people I have ever met and his outgoing personality has made a huge impact on my granddaughter Dorie who loves to visit the store and talk with Mr. Bereley.

Of course one of my favorite times to visit the shop is during a holiday and Christmas is wonderful there. You can always count on some type of homemade goodies and a wonderful beverage to go with it. This Christmas open house we snacked on Peach Pepper Jam over Cream Cheese with crackers and Cranberry White Chocolate Magic Bars while sipping Mulled Cider.





But my all time favorite recipe that has been served at Evelyn's has to be the Pickled Shrimp. I asked for and received the recipe from Bereley and have prepared it for a small gathering to a wedding reception for 100. It is a wonderfully simple dish and one I will gladly share.

Please enjoy the photos and if you'd like you can visit Evelyn's online at http://www.evelynsjewelry.com/ or their entertaining blog at http://evelynsjewelry.blogspot.com/ and if you just happen to drop by our small town please visit the store and tell him Camella sent you!

I also like your combination of posts. And I always wondered where Mr. Rogers went. He manages Evelyns. It is a wonderful day in your neighborhood...I havn't begun a Friday post and its already Friday. I'll try to put up something.

What a wonderful little shop. I like it. Good choice for combining two posts into one.

This is not the same as the famous Crabtree & Evelyn? I am not a shopper, in Singapore, it is a very prestigious place for up market shoppers.

Lovely shop, and sounds like an enchanting place.

a fun place to visit and what makes it so great is the people that are there. the people that greet you and make it feel like home.
