Alert “06880” readers know that Mersene* is one of my favorite people in the world.
And her store —Indulge by Mersene — is one of the best on the planet.
It’s fun. It’s funky. It’s totally Mersene.
Yet all good things must end. Today, the popular, vivacious, beloved unofficial mayor of Railroad Place announces she’s closing. She writes:
In a few weeks, the corner by the train station will be a little less lively.
There will be one less place to buy pillows, ceramics, plants, chocolates, pasta, copperware, cutting boards, hand towels and anything else you could want — all stashed in a reusable willow basket or hatbox, then tied together with ribbons, bows and twine that looks so lovely you hate to unwrap it.
Mersene has been unfailingly generous and supportive — to “06880” (the blog) and 06880 (the community).
Her closing leaves a hole in our community, and our hearts. Happily, she’ll still be here — online, and in pop-up shops.
So we’ll keep indulging, the unique Mersene way.
*Like Cher, Madonna and Divine, she needs only one name.
