Spreading the LOVE.
Posted by: Mark Jerde
WOW!!! Another holiday season is upon us. In spite of it being a very trying year for all of us, it flew by incredibly fast. As you may be aware of, due to Covid-19 we have decided to close our doors until Spring 2021 for everyone's safety. This has allowed more time for me to venture into other interests that I have never had the opportunity to explore.
Normally, this time of year keeps me quite busy at 168 Gay Street. However, this year I volunteered to takeover an available storefront to decorate for the holidays, as my own. Linda Westphal who owns "Rowhouse", a charming resale store in Manayunk specializing in vintage house wares and many other items. Linda also owns one of the most beautiful storefronts at 4320 Main Street where she was so generous to allow me to help spread some holiday magic by lighting this gorgeous building during the month of December. This was my opportunity to bring Manayunk Chambers Guest House to everyone visiting Main Street in Manayunk who are busy helping to support small businesses that are working so hard to stay afloat during such a difficult and unprecedented time.
Not only has this allowed for me to showcase our award winning bed and breakfast, I was able to introduce our second location "QUARTERS" in Manayunk that will also be opening next Spring. Fortunately, the storefront located on the corner of Main and Cotton Streets allowed for me to take advantage of two equally large display windows where I am showcasing both of our BnBs. You may be interested to know that the property is for sale and would make a beautiful shoppe for the right business.
As if it wasn't opportunity enough, the MDC, Manayunk Development Corporation has made it an even sweeter deal by creating a contest called "Manayunk Gets Lit" worth over $10,000 in prizes for the most voted storefronts by you, our customers and guests. You just need to go to the website by way of the link and vote for your favorite. I will be very grateful for you to keep me in mind as your favorite when voting and please share with family and friends.
Please remember that you may purchase gift certificates in any denomination that can be used at both properties "Manayunk Chambers Guest House" and our newest modern lodging experience "QUARTERS". Please look for further information on QUARTERS in future blog posts and on our social media pages.
Thank you so much for being such loyal guests of ours, We are grateful that you have given us the opportunity to have served you in the past and very much look forward to having you, your friends and family stay with us in the future.
Many blessings to you for a wonderful holiday and a brilliant and healthy new year!
