Nadja Moeller, an ex-attorney from Germany, missed some of the household items she had known in her home country. It was difficult for her to find traditional brushes, shaving kits, beer steins, and other items common in Germany. So she decided to open a store that would sell these items to the general public here in Sarasota. A few months later Nessentials
(Necessary Essentials) was born.
Located in Burns Court, 532 S Pineapple Avenue to be exact, Nessentials is open Tuesday through Saturday 11 am to 4 pm. Today Nesssentials is participating in the Holiday Stroll through Burns Court by staying open till 9pm! Nadja also prepared some delicious German gingerbread for hungry passersby. Best of all, Nadja is taking 10% off every item in the store for today only.
Find them at Burns Court or on their Facebook page – make sure to LIKE them.
