House of Mo Boutique just celebrated its first anniversary, but not before receiving the news of GrapeFest's cancellation.
Despite the festival’s cancellation, owner Monica Housewright said she has used her recent anniversary to bring in new business.
“We created our own event with margaritas and hotdogs and live music,” she said. "And it became like a mini GrapeFest, and actually, we capitalized on it very well.”
Housewright said the news of the festival's cancellation was a big hit, but it was expected.
“To be honest, I mean, it wasn't a surprise to me at all,” Housewright said.
She said part of the draw of being located on Main Street is access to the city’s many annual festivals.
“[GrapeFest] is kind of a built-in staple for us,” Housewright said. "When you lose that, I mean, that's a huge weekend that ... makes your month."
House of Mo Boutique offers women’s clothing and accessories, including tops, bottoms and dresses, as well as gifts, jewelry and more.
