A Message From The Village Shoppes
The last several weeks have been challenging...for all of you and for all of us. Despite the turmoil, w e can't let another moment pass without expressing our sincerest gratitude for your show of support for our locally-owned, family-business. Your  kind notes, calls, and social media messages nourished us when we felt discouraged or worried. When we finally got to see you again, our emotions were uplifted. If there is anything good that this pandemic brought upon us, it's the phenomenal growth of empathy and kindness. It's as we knew it will never be the same but, together, we can make it better than ever. 

 Add some panache to your summertime cookouts with new, melamine serving wear!

Although these cheerful plates are designed to look like paper plates, they're durable and long-lasting. 

Gather your family and call your friends! There's no time like NOW to have a picnic using your new melamine serving ware from The Village Shoppes!

Just in time for summer...
Yep, that's right! 
We have crush-resistant hats that fold up, making them simple to tote, easy to store, and a must-have for summer! These unisex hats are available in a variety of colors AND they offer UPF 50+ sun protection!  

These hats have been a HOT seller, 
so don't wait long to get yours!

Your dad's manly hands deserve better than purty-smellin', girly soap, so give him something he'll really appreciate on his special day, like a bar of soap (or two) from our Duke Cannon collection!

We carry an extensive line of Duke Cannon products that Dad will appreciate...lip balm, shampoo, shower wash, and shaving cream...all releasing a masculine fragrance that Dad (and Mom) will really enjoy. But do you know what Dad will appreciate the most about your gift? A portion of all Duke Cannon sales goes to  support veteran's causes!

Duke Cannon...a gift that 
will make Dad proud!

Your kids will g et in the swim of things 
with our fun, new line of water goggles!

These water goggles have a snug outer-eye fit, UV blocking lenses, and an adjustable comfort strap.

 Available in an assortment of designs that kids will love, parents will love knowing their kid's eyes are protected from chlorine and the sun's rays.

Get 'Em While We Got 'Em
(Yeah, yeah,'s not grammatically correct, but it's catchy!)

These cute, puffy, bedazzled keychains blow out of our store  every time we get them in stock!

So, we're going to get right to the point and make it simple...we have them in stock now and they won't last long so come in TODAY to get yours!
