PARADISE BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT

Every week we will spotlight a business in Paradise to encourage shopping locally and supporting economic recovery in Paradise – and maybe uncover a business you haven’t heard of before! This week we’re focusing on Jeannie’s Consignment, a long-time favorite hunting ground for high-quality pre-owned furniture, houseware, home décor, jewelry, tools and more. For more information on this local business, follow Jeannie’s on Facebook to get the first look at new items. Jeannie’s is located on 491 Pearson Road, Paradise, and open Saturday and Sunday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Call (530) 762-4960 for more information. Jeannie’s is a proud member of the Paradise Ridge Chamber of Commerce.
