IT WAS a place to catch up over coffee, take a break over a pot of tea, or purchase a new book or cushion for that special person.
Blossoms Gifts and Homewares has finished a chapter in their long history of trade when they closed their store on Saturday.
Business owners Joanne Ross and Anita Moore offered their gratitude to their loyal customers who had come into their store over the years.
They have sold fresh pots of tea, homemade cupcakes and the latest books to the region for 10 years.
"Thank you to our wonderful customers, people and staff who supported us … (and) helped in any way to make Anita's and my dreams come true," Joanne said.
Joanne said customers popped into the Capricorn Hwy store for a final goodbye, while the owners werebusy packing boxes and selling the last of their stock.
"We were wished the best and they all supported us, and said they'd miss us," she said. "That was lovely."
Both women will miss serving fresh homemade cakes and coffee to their regulars who would frequent the store in the morning for a coffee and a chat.
