 The Merry Moore Boutique is now offering care packages, available in two sizes. The small care package comes with a motel-style keychain, a 3.5 oz. soy candle, a hair tie and a card with a personalized message. Feeling generous? Upgrade to a large care package including items from the small package plus a market bag or pouch and a salt water sandal or any item from the sale tab online.

Know someone in need of a little pampering? Send them one of the three new quarantine kit options from Acacia Spa for some much-needed TLC.

Help Monroe House support other local businesses with their new fundraiser t-shirt. At the end of next week, the boutique will share the profits of the shirt with the top two nominated small businesses so grab a tee for you and your friend!
