Aurora Rose Ribbon Cutting Party

Last Tuesday Aurora Rose had its second anniversary, which was also marked by a ribbon cutting of their new location in Lemont, IL.

Vendors, customers and family members celebrated the event, and it was lovely to meet some of the creative people my Maraviglia share the space with.

Dad’s Roadhouse provided delicious snacks for the occasion, and his jars are available for sale at Aurora Rose.

I met the newest greeting card vendor and perused her lovely art work.

It was fun to update my shelf, which had gained a little companion who showcases my wares.

I also added the Dancing Wings butterflies to see if they might go home to a young girls’ room.


The store is full of wonderful gift items, including soaps, lotions, candles, baby blankets, jewelry, fairy dolls, parasols, wall art, hair adornments, children’s clothes, stuffed animals, quirky decorative items, handbags, doll clothes and more.


Kim and Amber take pride in selecting unique handmade gifts and are very passionate about their store.

Goth-minded mothers will love shopping here (the fabric sparkles!).

Guess which pieces went home with me?

I love the decorative badge holders and the paper flower bouquets, and…

I love that Aurora Rose is a genuine family business, and what a nice family it is (with the webmaster son conferencing in from college for the occasion).


Close-ups of my wares now at Aurora Rose are here.  Aurora Rose offers classes and workshops, with a birdbath mosaic class coming up soon.
