Good People, Good Products, Great Deals

I know times are hard, but now more than ever we need to take care of ourselves and support local businesses! Like you, I'm on a budget, and I'm excited to share some of my favorite people, bargains, and products.

First up is Kristy Sue Brown, owner of The Body Remedy. This young lady has a huge heart and really strong hands! I treated myself to a massage at her salon last week, and was more than satisfied. If you are looking for a knowledgeable staff, and don't want to spend a fortune, then look no further. They are offering $20 off any service(s) of $60 or more for new clients for services such as massage, facials, manicures, pedicures, hair cuts, color, waxing, and more.

Hair A Go-Go is another place I like to go, hang out, and get my hair done. Their goal is for you to leave with the best hair of your life, and I've never been disappointed! You go in, grab a cup of coffee, meet with an expert stylist, and leave with an amazing cut and style for only $36-$52. Head turning hair with a rock and roll edge, I love it!

World Next Door offers interesting, beautiful, and useful handmade products from all over the world. They're passionate about exploring the beauty of the developing world and offering fair trade merchandise to our local market (and at a great price). You have to visit their website and store in downtown Chattanooga for a fun global experience and good conversation. There is something for any body! Such as boxer shorts for dad ($15), a ring for your sister ($10), and an eco-friendly shopping bag for mom ($25).

Umbra Essence Candles is another Chattanooga gem that is off the beaten path, and filled with hand crafted goodness. At Umbra Essence's store in St. Elmo you will find fine gifts from all over the United States and you might even get to watch them make candles. Jamie Floyd Mosey hand crafts each candle one at a time combining the highest quality fragrance oils and highly refined clean-burning paraffin wax. All of you candle fans must visit them today and see for yourself why these should be your new favorite candles!
