Good morning! Did you remember to "fall back" last night? If not, take a little extra time enjoying your coffee (or go back to sleep).
Here’s a tossed salad of business information for your Sunday.
Antique mall opens today
Mickey Phillips, owner of Angels Crossing in Greenbrier, has opened Angels Crossing II Antique and gift mall in Conway.
His venture in Greenbrier is likely the largest flea market of its kind in this area. This new antique and gift mall in Conway is even larger (9,000 square feet when it is finished). All the booths are installed, which Phillips tells me will be a bonus for vendors.
Angels Crossing II is on Fendley Drive, next to Dixie Cafe. It is occupying five store fronts, or it will be when the fifth one is finished.
Phillips and his wife, Lisa, are looking for vendors who sell crafts, antiques and so forth. They may be reached at 501-246-1518 or 501-269-3160.
Assisted living facility opening Monday
Southridge Village of Conway opens Monday on South Donaghey Avenue near Dave Ward Drive. The assisted living community is privately owned by mother-daughter team Elizabeth Blankenship and Ashley Blankenship.
The facility accepts independent living residents as well as those who need medication assistance and nursing care. It will house 80 total residents. All residents will have private apartments.
It also offers amenities such as a movie area, a bingo/card area, an ice cream parlor, a beauty salon and housekeeping and laundry services, of course. Ashley Blankenship said they will start a vegetable garden when the weather gets warm again, and they will have indoor and outdoor activities.
Vintage boutique moving
M. Antoinette’s is moving from downtown to 813 Oak St., the former location of The Rose Cottage, which has found a home in downtown.
Viki Teague, owner of M. Antoinette’s, said she will reopen Nov. 8, the day downtown merchants are having a Christmas open house. She will hold a fundraiser that day for Roses Among Thorns, a support group for women affected by cancer. The group will be on hand holding a tea party during the open house, she said.
The store offers vintage clothing, jewelry, baby items, formal gowns, wedding attire and gifts.
New to Conway
I’m told there is a Holiday Inn coming to town. It will be located on the hill overlooking Amity Road and the Faulkner County Natural Resource Center, where a building has been coming down recently.
Also, a sign for a new sub shop is up in the shopping center at Meadowlake Road and Donaghey Avenue.
