As Toyville closes, Finery will open


About the same time Toyville closes next month, another small shop will open in downtown Worthington.

Finery will be a gift shop in the 800-square-foot former Emlolly candy store at 667 High St.

Emlolly owner Melanie Bunstine plans to open Finery in the middle of June.

The shop will carry a variety of merchandise, including "farmers market" items, baskets from Maine and gifts of all kinds, mostly from small companies across the country and locally.

"We will carry as many things locally made as we can," Bunstine said.

She and husband Sam Baker, who owns the downtown building in which Finery will be located, believe downtown Worthington will be a good area for retail.

"There are women walking around downtown all the time who are looking for a place to shop," she said.

Emlolly closed its doors 14 months ago but maintains a website.
