Cape Gazette BUSINESS & REAL ESTATE FRIDAY, JANUARY 22 - MONDAY, JANUARY 25, 2010 1t7 Josephine's Daughter opens second location in Lewes Milton gallery, gift shop expands to Second Street By Leah Hoenen leah@capegazette.com Photos, paintings and jewelry from 20 local mists decorate the walls and shelves of Josephine's Daughter on Second Street in Lewes. The shop's second location is much like the first, in Milton, but with a little less furniture, says owner Deb Wilkins-Schiffer. She calls her merchandise wear- able art - art that the home and homeowner alike can wear. Some things are old, some are new, but Wilkins-Schiffer sees beauty in all of it - from wine- bottle stoppers her son, Sam, makes to the photographs taken by Cape Henlopen High School students ]enn Simonsen and Ben Bateman. There is jewelry, painted glass and fabric, all with an artistic flare that creates a comfortable feeling in the shop, which shares an entrance with Flowers by MayumL "I want people to walk in and enjoy what they see and have fun shopping;" she said. Josephine's Daughterjs named after Wilkins-Schiffer's mother, known simply as Jo. "Almost everyone asks, re you Josephine or her daughter?' And the answer is, 'I'm her daughter,'" says Wilkins-Schiffer, wearing an artsy glass necklace. Jo, who passed away 11 years ago in a car accident, had style and taste and was a great host- ess, her daughter says. Jo's taste inspires Wilkins-Schiffer, who often teased her mother about naming a store after her. It's become a family affair, with her sons, brother, sister-in-law, father and stepmother all pitch- ing in, said Wllkins-Schiffer. Both parents were Millsboro natives, but Wilkins-Schiffer's fa- ther was a Methodist preacher, so the family lived in many loca- tions on the Delmarva Peninsula. After a career in retail, marketing and management, Wilkins-Schif- fer was able to return to her teenage dream of owning a shop in the beach area. "I get to constantly shop, deco- rate and socialize. You can't beat it," said Wilkins-Schiffer. Meeting new people is as re- warding as selling merchandise, said Wilkins-Schiffer, who has always enjoyed fashion and dec- -orating. She says home decorat- ing is an art form. She had in mind a few local artists whose work she wanted to retail, but when word got out, more artists came to the store to sell their wares, she said. Although no dates are set, she hopes to host an open house in the Lewes store and a meet-and- greet with some artists in the coming weeks, she said. For now, Josephine's Daughter in Lewes is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday. The Milton location is open from U a.m. to 5 p.m., through the week, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturdays.
