There is a new antique shop in Labelle that everyone is talking about.
We recently went to the town to ask locals about stories they’d like us to document. One of the many recommendations was Me and My Girls. This family-owned business collects and restores antique items. The items are sold to people who have an appreciation for historical artifacts.
As soon as I walked in, I was greeted by the owners Maggie and Rudy. The couple were excited to share their story and the reason why they are in Labelle. It turns out, they are a family from Naples, who fell in love with the small-town feel of Labelle. After spotting an abandoned building, the owners did what they do best. They turned it into a masterpiece.
Me and My Girls is packed with antique items, jewelry, and other home decor. This project is more about community than competition. Me and My Girls supports the city of Labelle and its makers. The owners do so by creating sections to rent out to dedicated local craft makers.
