Almost Necessities adds fashion items and accessories | New Enumclaw businesses
After operating Almost Necessities for 21 years at Enumclaw’s busiest intersection, Peggy Wenham decided it was time for a change.
The result is Almost Necessities Chapter 2, which opened for business May 1, still at the corner of Cole Street and Griffin Avenue.
The emphasis has shifted between Wenham’s “new” and “old” shops. She decided to back away from gifts and collectable and offer more in the way of fashion items. Visitors will now find “upcycled” clothing, along with fashion accessories for women, men and kids, silk scarves, sterling silver jewelry, handbags and paper jewelry. The shelves also hold Yankee Candles, greeting cards, gifts and baking accessories like cookie cutters, gourmet baking cups, sprinkles and colored sugars.
Address: 1602 Cole St., Enumclaw
Hours: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday 10-5; closed Sunday.
