Two longtime friends opened a coffee shop and boutique store in Nortonville, Kansas, this year.

Marcy Noll and Penny Lindscott are owners of Gals of Grace located on Main Street which serves customers of all ages. The business is located in a renovated building constructed in 1905 that is owned by Marcy Noll and her husband Tony.

Noll said they purchased the building with the goal of bringing it back to life. The store opened in May.

“It has red cinder block on the outside and brick walls on the inside,” Noll said. “The walls, floors and ceiling are back to their original state. We tried to keep it as much the same as it originally was. It took four years to complete the renovation.”

In the coffee shop, the two friends created their own blend of beans from The Roasterie in Kansas City.

“The coffee is our own Gals of Grace blend,” Noll said. “It’s a blend you won’t find anywhere else. We can serve it hot or iced.”

In addition, the store serves tea, lemonade and soda.

Linscott said they purchase their baked goods and pastries fresh every week from Gravel Road Goodies in Valley Falls, Kansas. The products they offer include muffins, dessert breads, cinnamon rolls and coffee cake.

She said they are selling a wide variety of boutique and gift items for Christmas including blankets, pillows and candles.

The boutique store purchases some of its products from local vendors such as hand towels, jewelry and candles. They also have products for children such as toys and books. They have a home accessory line and sports apparel as well.

“We have a variety of merchandise for everyone in the family and we sell unique products,” Linscott said. “We have a selection of jewelry, purses and pillows. Women’s clothing is probably our best seller.”

The store partners with a non-profit organization that raises funds to aid burn victims in Uganda. The group Gulu Burn Mission in Uganda sells merchandise in the store and all proceeds go to the charity.

Linscott said they have different group activities that come into the shop including Bible studies and a card group each week.

“We want to be a service to the community,” Linscott said. “We want it to be a place where people feel they can come and visit. We have a couch area for that reason.”

Noll said they are planning on opening a lunch counter and consignment booth within a year. They also plan to expand to include an event center that holds around 150 people for graduation parties, bridal showers, baby showers and birthday parties.

She said they base their business and logo on the Bible verse from Ephesians 2:8-9 which reads, “For it is by grace you are saved through faith-and this is not of yourselves, it is the gift of God lest no man should boast.”
