SO... The story goes like this... We walked in to buy a Door and walked out buying the Store! RUSTIC RETAIL MARKET 10 Greenwich Street in Belvidere was closing. We walked in to buy the door listed on Market Place and noticed the Going Out of Business Sign. We asked the owner Heather if she would like to sell the store and she said Hell Yes! So another check off on our Bucket List! We started to remodel immediately! It a work in Progress. We have such big plans for various Activities, Classes and Special Events. You see for years we were vendors at other Antique Shops and now we had an opportunity to have our own. Truly humbly blessed. We are Super Excited to be part of this quaint community in Belvidere. Our hope is that the Community helps keep this shop alive! So come and visit and help support the Mom and Pop Vendor's in the store!


OUR LOVE STORY... A little inside scoop about Joan Marie and Eric. Soul Mates Do exist! It was Love at first sight, capture by the first Hello, just like in the movies... Our connection was a savored memory as we developed a true friendship for 17 years until we met again, picking up where we left off, in Love! True Love is like a magnet of energy that searches to connect the missing piece until the Soul reunites with the one that is meant for you. Eric and Joan Marie have been blessed with a wild journey through life... the true Brady Bunch, without Alice. Lol. Joan Marie has two boys Conner and Ryan and Eric, three girls, Arica, Sarah and Jillian.... and a grandson Remington....a family united by friendship and love.


Through the years we worked hard to develop our businesses to help seniors and the disabled communities. We own 3 Adult Medical Day Care Centers for seniors in Newark, Elizabeth and Ridgefield Park NJ One of our centers is all Korean Seniors dedication to Joan Marie's father Eugene Benedetto, a purple heart, honorable, proud Marine who served in the Korean War. We also have a Day Habilitation Center For the Developmentally Disabled IDD community in Fairlawn NJ. Though our Consulting company Future Focus, we help others build Adult Medical Day Care Centers. Joan Marie also serves as the President of NJAMDSC, President of NJAPA and is the Vice Chair of the National Board NADSA. She also is a National Instructor for Activity Professionals through NCCAP. Our Mission is to Help Others, Help Others to Help Others...
