By David Rogers. June 27, 2019 BLOWING ROCK, NC — When one downtown retail store is successful, why not open a second?
When the space in the little house at Main Street’s intersection with Laurel Lane, just across from the Martin House became available, Tazmaraz owner Lisa Ireland jumped at the chance to open Blowing Rock’s newest retailer of women’s apparel and gift items, “Funky Tulip.”
“Tulips are my favorite flower,” Ireland explained to Blowing Rock News after the ribbon cutting and grand opening that attracted some three dozen town dignitaries, business owners, and local residents to help her celebrate. “There is something about the tulip that is fun and special all at the same time.”
