Hand-Me-Downs With Humor

After years of open-mic nights and co-producing a successful series of regular comedy events called Side Ponytail, Carolyn Busa landed back home in South Jersey when the pandemic abruptly shut down the scene in 2020. She opened Peak Secondhand at Centre Street and Maple Avenue in Merchantville early in June as a showcase for her earthy personality, vintage clothes and her own drawings. Busa and her dad looked at a number of locations in Philadelphia before finding the space on busy Centre Street - seen by Mayor Ted Brennan as "an attractive option for people who are investing in themselves like Carolyn" - A longtime fan of shopping for used clothing and accessories, Busa was inspired to get into the business by Frugal Thrift and Vintage in Collingswood and recently caught the eye of writer, Kevin Riordan, from The Inquirer. PEAK is open Tuesday-Friday from 12-6; Saturday 12-7 and Sunday 12-5.

Treat Your Pooch To Javy's

Javi's Gravy Sauce for Dogs is an easy and affordable way to add fresh flavors and smells to your dog’s dry food. Owner, Javi Quinones, dogs Bear and Buddy were picky eaters and never ate their dry food, and didn't like wet food - even the expensive kind. So Javi came up with a gravy made of 100% fresh meat or fish, kale, spinach, carrots and omega3 to mix with the dry food and they loved it! He thinks your doggie will too! The great thing is now our dogs are getting fresh healthy food and they lick their bowls clean. Shop online or stop by his shop at 177. S. Centre Street to grab some gravy for your pet's holiday dinner. #shopsmall #shoplocal
