A new shop in the heart of Hillyard plans to offer wine and fruit-flavored beer tastings.
The Good Stuff, which opened on North Market Street in February, sells an eclectic mix of goods – from hand-carved wooden kitchen utensils to an array of baked goods, spices and spice racks.
Proprietor Richard Burris said he took the name of the store from his wares – “just good stuff. That’s what, to me, I have here.”
Burris sells wine – merlot, pinot gris, chardonnay, Riesling and a cabernet-merlot blend – under The Good Stuff label. He also sells wine from Locati Cellars and Skylite Cellars in Walla Walla. Wines range in price from $11.75 to $29.50.
He plans to sell growlers of raspberry ale ($21) and blueberry stout ($24) flavored with extracts made on site.
Burris bought the 1907 building at 5006 N. Market St. in November. He lets local craftspeople display their goods free of charge, taking a portion of the proceeds from retail sales.
Jams and jellies – strawberry, blueberry, blackberry, raspberry, jalapeño – are made in the kitchen at the back of the boutique by Us Girls and Papa’s Jams, Jellies & More.
Blanchard, Idaho-based Arrowhead Products does custom woodwork and blacksmithing, including the kitchen utensils.
Laurinda’s Bakery & Catering provides the cookies, cakes, bread and other baked goods.
Other goods include soaps, candles, pottery, jewelry and wooden boxes.
The shop is open 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. It’s closed Sunday and Monday.
