Small business is booming on Amelia Island as we attended two exciting business grand opening celebrations this week in Fernandina Beach, Florida. The Cabell Insurance Group has moved to a new location, next to Beef O’Brady’s in the Publix Shopping Center, and invited the community to meet the new owner, Joel Shapiro.

After the ribbon cutting ceremony, speeches were given by a member of the Amelia Island-Fernandina Beach-Yulee Chamber of Commerce and by Shapiro, who was warm and sincere. Face painting, child identification, refreshments, quotes and free chair massages were just part of the activities that added to their celebration.

The next Grand Opening was at debonair, a brand new designer handbag and accessory boutique located at 2380 Sadler Road. With exciting brand names such as Rampage, Lodis and Hype, their gift items, sandals, jewelry, scarves and belts are quality pieces with quite reasonable prices.

They too, invited the community and a good crowd showed up to share in the refreshments, participate in the raffle and show support for local business.

This video is just a sampling of the grand openings in case you weren’t able to attend these exciting events.

We have written several pieces about the negative main stream media news and all of their stories of gloom and doom, but here on Amelia Island, our little community still knows that small business makes the world go ‘round! Congratulations to both companies, we wish you many years of success!

    Yes, I agree it's a good sign that new businesses open and show that even if an economy is 10% down, there is still 90% in operation. I think I need to open up an insurance business. Great odds; one guy to eleven or more women!
