Chamber Social Business Spotlight!
Sabrina Theas, On The Spot Designs! My name is Sabrina Theas, I am the owner of On The Spot located at 215 West 5th Street beside the post office. I opened my shop in October. It is a general gift shop where you can find local made gifts from myself and a variety of other local artisans. I also carry an array of other gifts that are ordered out from regional wholesalers. At the shop I also offer custom gifts such as memorial tiles, glass etching, t-shirts and more. It is the perfect local place to go to find a personalized gift for any occasion. I have made personalized gifts for years out of my home, and was starting to outgrow my space. I took a leap of faith in opening up my own shop wanting to expand and give locals a creative place to shop. My ultimate hope is to see Maryville become a destination spot much like Weston, MO. With Mozingo Lake expanding and opening more places my thought is all those visitors will need somewhere to go to do some shopping. I feel that Maryville is well on it’s way with the other shops that have also opened downtown including Minnie Lane and Blue Willow. Along with the new and established shops downtown it would be easy to spend an afternoon shopping right in our local Maryville. Please feel free to contact me anytime you are in need of a custom gift for a special occasion: weddings, birthdays, new babies, anniversaries, etc. Or just stop by anytime for a fun shopping experience. You can reach me at 660-241-5050 or email me at email@example.com. You can also visit my Facebook page On The Spot Designs, be sure to like and share to spread the word we have local Maryville shopping. Hope to see you all at the shop.
