GRAND RAPIDS TOWNSHIP, Mich. — (Mar. 27, 2014) A little less than two years ago Prudence Kauffman had a dream to open her own shop specializing in affordable but stylish jewelry, clothes and gifts. Now almost two years later that dream has been so successful that she’s moving her little shop from the Gaslight District in East Grand Rapids to a new, larger retail space in Forest Hills.

The move to a new retail space inside the Forest Hills Shopping Center allows the store to grow says Kauffman. In addition to the usual gifts and jewelry one thing you notice is the increase in spring fashions throughout the store. With a larger space expect to see more of the already popular items with a few new additions from local and regional artists.

Dear Prudence in Forest Hills is open Monday thru Saturday from 10AM to 7PM inside the Forest Hills Shopping Center at 820 Forest Hills Ave SE, Grand Rapids, MI. For more information on Dear Prudence or to shop on-line visit their web-site at
