Grand Opening & Open House


Another Grand Opening & Open House

Pocomoke City –15 May 2012 – Pocomoke City Mayor Bruce Morrison proudly announces the grand opening of “Cottage Art by Justine,” an internet-based business featuring eclectic, repurposed, and “up- cycled” items.  He is also celebrating the completion of renovations of the recently revamped “Salty Dog Grooming” studio.  Both businesses are owned by Justine Oneal.

This Saturday, Oneal will host a joint grand opening and open house, along with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.  She is inviting the public to browse her newly renovated building and creative workspace.  Local business owners and public officials will be on hand.  Food and beverages will be served and a number of exciting door prizes – provided my local downtown businesses – will be distributed.  The event begins at 10:00am and will wrap-up by 12:00pm, with the ribbon-cutting scheduled for 10:30am.  It will all take place at 21 Clarke Avenue, across the street from City Hall.

Items sold at Cottage Art by Justine include painted and faux-finished furniture, fixtures, frames, accent pieces and other decorative items, along with original paintings. The business also sponsors several artists boasting different techniques, including her artist-in-residence, Annette Hicks. Annette is known locally for her canine portraits, but specializes in all custom portraits and mixed media canvas paintings.  A number of original artworks will be on display this Saturday, but a full selection can be found at:

Salty Dog Grooming is a “doggie day spa” for pampered pets. The spa offers all-breeds grooming by Justine Oneal. At Salty Dog all pampered clients receive “hydrosurge bathing” with specialized shampoos, and plenty of “bling” accompanies all standard service. 

Justine has over 30 years experience in the pet care industry. She built and operated for over 16 years a successful resort boarding kennel on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. She also earned her CKO status from the American Boarding and Kennel Association. Salty Dog hours are by appointment only.

Cottage Art’s opening marks another milestone in the city’s efforts to attract new businesses to Pocomoke’s downtown as it repositions itself as a tourist destination.  Members of the community who are interested in learning more about either business are encouraged to stop by on Saturday.  Those interested in the city’s downtown efforts in general, should contact Angela Manos, at 410-603-1178, or
