The Enchanted Mermaid
Perhaps you’ve driven by the corner of Douglas and Hillside and wondered what The Enchanted Mermaid was. Maybe you’ve seen events floating around social media for the business and curious as to what they do. Well, I’m here to help get you the details on the locally owned shop and entertainment venue located in College Hill at 3201 E. Douglas.
The Enchanted Mermaid is a business that does a bit of everything. There’s a retail side that serves as a shop and carries items like women’s and children’s clothing, jewelry, art, knick-knacks, and children’s toys. Many of the toys have a focus on the whimsical, magical and fantasy side of mermaids, unicorns and imaginary fun.
Then there’s the side of the business that really tries to bring the fun. It’s the entertainment and venue aspect that holds events and things to do, not just for kids, but people of all ages.
For example, there’s a regular event that lets your children hang out with mermaids. I haven’t been able to confirm if they are real mermaids, but I suspect its staff dressed up as one. They have a section in the back of the business, people can rent out for children’s parties.
Their event schedule can be found here on their Facebook page. They have such things to do as paint nights, tea time with characters from Frozen and other movies, art shows, kids cookie decorating classes, and much more. The Enchanted Mermaid’s goal is to make dreams come true.
If you’re looking for different things to do, The Enchanted Mermaid is just one of many local businesses offering a chance to do just that.
