A new shop with a focus on a unique retail and relaxation experience for women has opened in Downtown Devils Lake.

The shop features two parts in one, with each part focusing on something different. Just For You, which is the craft and gift shop side, promotes gifts that are handmade by women, empowering women.

Run by Connie Orness, Just For You houses four separate rooms full of different crafts and gift items all hand and homemade by women and vendors. The main showroom offers a mix of items, including back-to-school supply baskets in the shape of cakes, magnet boards, college lanyards, fall items, Himalayan Salt Lamps and more.

The kitchen room features handmade aprons, hand and dishtowels, tile square coasters, and wool dyer balls, among other gift items.

The baby and toddler room displays baby hats, headbands, tutus, blankets, burp cloths, teething biscuits, mini aprons, and diaper cakes. Little Girl’s Purses are also available. These purses are “like great grandma used to carry when she was a little girl (65 to 70 years ago),” according to their description card.

The doll room has a collection of 18″ doll clothes. Blanket sets that come with a child sized blanket and a doll sized blanket, along with pillowcases are also available.

Other items displayed along the walls of Just For You include Barnwood signs with various sayings, which can be made to order, wood and cloth crosses, mesh wreaths, essential oils and Younique Makeup.

“This is so new and different,” Orness said. “Everything is so uniquely done. No other shop is like this. In all of these crafts and gifts, the focus is on empowering women for women, for their healthy being.”

Just For You currently has 15 crafters who make a variety of items featured in the store and three vendors, including Younique Makeup, Prairie Comforts goat milk lotions and soaps, and Damsel in Distress. Orness describes the vendor items as items that pertain to women but are not necessarily handmade.

“These ladies come up with the cutest things. Everything comes from all these creative minds, and creative women are wonderful. There is a lot of love in these items,” Orness said.

The relaxation aspect of the shop is called White DragonEmpowering YOU. Certified Natural Health Professional Rebecca Ann Person offers Raindrop Relaxation Technique and Vita Flex (vitality through the reflexes). The Raindrop Relaxation Technique uses a sequence of 11 Young Living essential oils that support the body’s natural defenses, as well as the circulatory, respiratory, endocrine, digestive, nervous and other body systems.

Essential oils are known to boost stamina and energy, are mood elevating, help with relaxation, stress management and frustration, and promote overall health, vitality and longevity.

Appointments for White Dragon can be made with Person by calling (701) 350-0548.

Just For You is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., and Saturday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Just For You is always looking for crafters and vendors, and those interested can contact Orness at (701) 350-1321.

Just For You and White DragonEmpowering YOU is located at 424 4 Ave NE, Devils Lake.
