Special to The Enterprise

French Cuff Consignment, Òa chic second-hand boutiqueÓ will open Friday at 130 G St. ItÕs in Suite A of the Depot Building, the former home of the Davis Chamber of Commerce.

Store hours will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week. Its grand opening will incorporate the Second Friday ArtAbout event and weekend sidewalk sale downtown. Local artists will be featured and refreshments will be served, said Corey De Roo, who owns the store with her mother, Darcy McNie.

The businessÕ website, http://www.frenchcuffbtq.com, says it Òspecializes in quality fashion items from top designers from around the world.Ó The storeÕs phone is (530) 756-3724.

Speaking of mothers, Lori Rumsey is looking for a buyer for her specialty baby store. ÒMother & Baby Source is not closing, but is up for sale,Ó she said.

Rumsey purchased the store in 2002 and later moved it to 714 Second St. It features products and classes that cater to young families, and pregnant and nursing mothers.

ÒIt has been an amazing journey watching families grow in the last eight years,Ó she wrote in a letter to the community that was submitted to The Enterprise.

ÒI am at a place in my life where it is time to move on to a new business venture,Ó the letter continues. ÒAside from being grandparents (with more to follow) my family is embarking on producing and marketing our candied walnut business. We have a 30-acre walnut farm in Woodland that has been in our family for many decades and it has been our dream to sell our tasty treats to local farmersÕ markets in the area.Ó

She said interested parties may contact Greg Roquet with Murphy Business & Franchise Network at (530) 753-1919 or at BizBkrGreg@att.net.

Lyndell Terrace Professional Center, a new medical and professional office condominium project, has an open house on Thursday.

The event, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at 2035 Lyndell Terrace in West Davis, is hosted by CMP Partners, Borges Architectural Group, Valley Commercial Contractors, Cassidy Turley BT Commercial, and California Statewide CDC. For information or to RSVP by Tuesday, e-mail jimand

nahz@ctbt.com.

So far, the medical office suites will feature Drs. Robert Miller, Brian Royse, John Hernried and Kim Anderson.

Michelle Haunold, owner and president of Gearhead Records, announced June 25 that she is closing her retail store, Gearhead Records and Stuff, at 39 Fifth St., Suite C, in Woodland.

Gearhead Records is an independent Òpunk ÕnÕ rollÓ record label based in Woodland. It celebrated its 10-year anniversary in April. This month, it will move the office to Mansion Square, 132 E St. in Davis.

The boutique opened in January 2007, featuring locally made rock ÕnÕ roll clothing and accessories, as well as used and new CDs and LPs.

Haunold, a Davis resident, said the decision to close the retail shop was not a reaction to the economy.

ÒThe store has continued to do incredibly well through this recession, both online and with walk-in customers.Ó

However, Òas much fun as having the store has been, itÕs also a lot of work,Ó she said. She will continue the online store, and manage the record label out of her Davis office.

Second Street Storage opened Monday at 2401 Second St. ItÕs owned by a Davis partnership, including brothers Mark and Greg McNece, and Mike Pesola. It was built at the site of the former Contech Construction Products fabrication plant.

Mark McNece said the first 140 units opened last week. Another 140 units and the managerÕs office will open in about a month. The facility features a state-of-the-art security system with card reader.

One interesting feature it plans to offer soon is climate-controlled wine storage cabinetry.

Dowling Properties has taken over Antiques Plus at 222 D St., Suite 1.

Last month, Comings & Goings mentioned the shop had advertised a Òstore-closing sale.Ó But the A-frame sign may have been a misnomer. It closed briefly and reopened under the new ownership, Dan Dowling said.

ÑÑÑ

Dowling also owns the yet-to-be-named used furniture store in the former Discoveries spot. The space, most recently occupied by futon and mattress stores, is at 213 E St.

Comings & Goings received a few inquiries about it because its front door is usually locked, despite an ÒopenÓ sign posted in the window.

ÒItÕs open Saturdays, and once in a while,Ó Dowling said. It sells used furniture, Òand odds and ends.Ó
