After a couple of false starts, Tammy Lytton of Lucy Lynn’s Li’l Touch of Home has announced that her store’s official ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place this Saturday, June 22 at 10 a.m.
Lytton says the first 100 people in the door will receive a free bottle of water and everyone can put their names in for the free gift drawings that will happen every hour from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. Participants do not have to be present to win.
Originally slated for Saturday, June 8, she held off the ceremony until June 15 due to the Claytor Lake Festival; but last weekend, town officials were unable to be present due to attending the 5K race fundraiser for the Pulaski County High School’s Cross Country and Track team.
Now she’s settled on this weekend as the final date for the store’s ribbon-cutting. That’s not the only thing that’s changed, according to Lytton; previously Lucy Lynn’s offered local craft vendors the opportunity to display their wares for “spot fees,” but Lytton says, “Now we’re doing consignments on craft items instead of renting spots.”
Lucy Lynn’s Li’l Touch of Home, on the corner of Main Street and Washington Avenue down from the Pulaski Theater, is dedicated to locally-made crafts and foods, from towels, quilts and bags to jewelry, children’s items and décor.
Lytton said that the store will be open from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. on First Fridays to offer pre-movie shopping to theatergoers. Lucy Lynn’s regular hours are 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
