Dutch Greeters welcome Eight Thirty-Six Main Street

Owner Shelly Riggen cuts the ribbon to celebrate the opening of her new business on Nov. 22.

Dutch Greeters held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of Eight Thirty-Six Main Street on Nov. 22.

Eight Thirty-Six Main Street hosts children’s parties with different themes, including a jungle/safari room, princess room, Harry Potter room and an Alice in Wonderland room, just to name a few. Owner Shelly Riggen has refurnished, repurposed and hand-painted the décor and artwork that makes each room eclectic and unique.

Little girls can come live out their dream of being a princess by dressing up in costumes, getting a manicure, pedicure, and their hair and makeup done. Guests can also make their own take-home gifts like tiaras, ferry wands, unicorn ornaments, lotions and scrubs.

“It’s an experience, not just your typical shopping,” said Riggen. “I call it ‘interactive shopping.’’

Riggen says she caters to both individuals and groups, and she can customize any visit upon request. Appointments can be booked through the shop’s Facebook page.

The shop is located at 836 Main St.
