Madrona's Cameos & Crowns to Close
Sad news: Madrona's Cameos & Crowns is closing just as soon as her current inventory is sold, which from the sounds of it, will be soon, given everything is 50 percent off until then. Owner Lynette Vertoch is quite the entrepreneur, having started Illume candles a few years back, and then launching a wildly successful line of towels, pillows, aprons and cosmetic bags illustrated with cool vintage images, which are now in over 450 stores (including Essenza, Three Birds and Metropolitan Markets), turning that project a full time job.
Vertoch expects the store to stay open through Sunday, January 27, and one more weekend after that if inventory allows. Needless to say, if you've come to rely on the lines of candles, body care and accessories that she carries, now's the time to head in and stock up.
