The Town of Marion is excited to welcome its newest business, Eclectic By Nature! Located at 116 East Main Street, Eclectic By Nature is the second store opened by owner and Marion native, Tavane Taylor. She owns a similar shop, located in Greensboro, NC, where she currently resides.
Eclectic by Nature is an eclectic gift shop, with a metaphysical emphasis, offering herbs and teas, soaps, handmade jewelry, crystals, incense, essential oils, and more.
Taylor learned all about the earth from her grandmother, a native of Sugar Grove, VA. Growing up, she was educated on the different uses of plants, and that her connection to land is very important. Learning from her grandmother, she grew up believing that the earth can provide many sources of healing, and with that, she has expanded her business to where her roots truly began, in Southwest Virginia.
"I spread my own version of happiness and joy," said Taylor, during and interview earlier on this year in the Smyth County News.
"The new Marion store is most definitely filled with happiness and joy, and when you enter, you won't be disappointed," said Olivia McDonald, Director of Marion Downtown, the town's Main Street organization. "So many folks are excited to have Eclectic By Nature open in downtown Marion, and it's great that locals and tourists can shop in such a unique business. Being able to get their supplies without having to travel elsewhere or order online is a game changer for our community," McDonald added. "
The store also has a Trade Library, inspired by the little library concept, where Taylor offers everyone the opportunity to take a book or leave a book, for free.
While you’re there, Taylor invites you to use the shop’s new relaxing space- to study, converse, pursue the free trade library, or simply “add to the good vibes.”
Hours of operation are Wednesday through Saturday 11 AM to 7 PM and Sunday 1 PM to 5 PM. They are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
