Warmed by the love and kindness that emanates from owner Michael Perich, the whimsy and magic of Gnome Colony is the defining characteristic of this clever shop at 485 N. Main St. in Glen Ellyn (630 793-5284).
A professional make-upartist, Michael has developed his own skin care and cosmetic line, which the store showcases along with complimentary demonstrations to customers.
The store is also stocked withwomens clothing in sizes 2 to 24, including capes, jackets, ponchos and one-of-a-kind items that add special flair to any outfit. Jewelry, accessories, home décor and gift items are abundant as well.
Retreat to a separate, private sanctuary to relax or explore one of four additional rooms, each with its own personality. In-store parties can be arranged and wine and cheese will be provided at no charge. Gnome Colony opens Tuesdays through Saturdays at 10 a.m. and at noon on Sunday.Edit Module
