Mary & Martha's in Forest Park is closing shop in the coming weeks. The State Reports:

Owner Beverley Tuller has started a liquidation sale to sell most of the items as she prepares to close the shop in March if she can't sell it first.

"I've had a couple of nibbles, but nothing has really panned out yet," Tuller said of a potential buyer, adding she will keep the store open longer if she has a contract in place to allow for a smooth transition.

Given the above, I'm not exactly sure where the name of the shop comes from, but I have been in there several times. As I recall, I bought a double-boiler, and an apple peeling machine (that worked better than I expected). It's not the kind of place a guy like me needs often, but always a nice option to have when I *do* need it.

  1. Bev is a lifelong friend of mine. The name of the store refers to the sisters whose home was visited by Jesus as described in the Book of Luke. Often, Mary amd Martha are thought of in terms of faith and hospitality and how they represent those things in the Bible.

    Here is more info on the name:

  3. I can't read the sign is it 20% off everything, or 50%? I might have to venture to a 50% off sale!!
