So as promised another week with another reason to move to Rockvillle Centre. Although this has been a project and a lot of running around, this has been so much fun because I get to go from place to place in one of the best towns Long Island has to offer. Rockville Centre has always been one of my favorite places to walk around and shop. So many unique and fun little shops that you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else. The service is also much more personal and the owners truly care about their customers. When I first started this project I hadn’t realized how lucky I would be to meet some truly inspirational people.
A TIME FOR KARMA
A Time for Karma happens to be a shop that I hold very near and dear to my heart. My mother used to absolutely love this store back when it was called Instant Karma and she used to take me there when I was a young child. Walking into the store today to talk to the owner, Vonda, took me right back to my childhood as soon as the beautiful smell of oils, incense, and candles hit me. You can just feel the spirituality here. Where as when I was young the store was mainly Wiccan and Pagan themed, Vonda decided to add all kinds of spirituality to the mix. Whether you are looking for crystals are beautiful unique jewelry or maybe a scheduled tarot card reading, this is the kind of place that just makes you feel good and at peace walking into. Now this may not be the only store of this nature that you have heard of, but might be the only one in which the owner takes women on tours of Venice, where she not only show you the beautiful landmarks Venice has to offer, but shares a history lesson on some inspiring Venetian women in history. When you purchase a home in Rockville Centre or the surrounding area through Century 21/Sherlock Homes, Vonda has been kind enough to include in a care package we are setting up for homes buyers, a candle and a gift certificate to welcome you to the area!!
Guilty Indulgences is an adorable little ladies accessory store. What I did not know until I went in to meet the owner and check out their merchandise is that they have a little hair salon in the back where very talented beauticians make beautiful women even more beautiful! The owner, Frank, a very kind gentleman I had the pleasure of meeting, has offered a 20% off any item or salon service to NEW customers if you print out this blog and bring it in on your visit. Some of the beautiful accessories inside that I was very impressed with include scarves, jewelry, sunglasses and much more. This place is definitely worth a visit whether on your lunch break in town looking for a place to shop, or if you can use a stylish haircut! Please ladies check this place out! I’m certain you’ll love it!
KATHLEEN’S OF DONEGAL IRISH IMPORTS
Kathleen’s of Donegal’s Irish Imports is a little Irish Store in Rockville Centre on Park Ave. South of Sunrise Highway, if you want a blessing only an Irishmen can give you or some breathtaking Irish Jewelry laced with emerald than this is most certainly the place to go. My very first claddagh ring was purchased from this store when I was 16 by my grandmother. It was 14k white gold with an emerald heart with diamonds around it and I absolutely loved it. This is one of the many reason I love Rockville Centre so much. It is such a great place to create amazing memories! This store also has adorable clothing for little ones making it one of the many, many reasons to raise a family in this well ab average town!!
