The Carousel opens in downtown Hastings


Downtown Hastings has several stores filled with mixtures of antiques and old items. It has stores filled with new items centered around a specific theme. What it doesn't have is a place where people can find an eclectic mix of new items. Until now.

On Saturday, Nov. 5, The Carousel opened its doors at 109 E. Second St. The new store sells gift shop type items such as candle warmers, cards, jewelry, teas, gourmet foods like honey butter and jams, art and some antiques.
