KINGSTON (WATE) - A Kingston store with a clever name offers unique personalized items and a wide array of invitations.
As you walk into Ella Minnow Pea, nestled in Ladd Landing at 1027 Waterford Place, you see the letters L, M, N, O, P displayed on the back wall. It's a reminder of the play on words shop owner Carrie Curry used when naming her store.
"It's what kids tend to say when they sing the alphabet," Carrie explained.
Her store focuses on gifts and invitations, and almost everything there can be personalized.
"T-shirts, buckets, painted picture frames, you can personalize it (all) these days," Carrie said. "It is just unique, fun, quirky little gifts. You can't just go into Walmart or the mall and get this. The person you get it for will really appreciate it."
But what Carrie might be most appreciated for is her wide array of invitations, baby items and graduation announcements. She claims to have all the local school colors on hand, and each student's announcement can really show off their personality.
Carrie has a graphic design background and her attention to detail also keeps her busy designing logos for many local businesses.
