JZ-Rose in Yelm recently updated their About Us page:

Welcome to Christmas in Yelm!

“JZ Knight is the owner of JZ Rose Boutique and the award-winning JZ Rose Virtual Village web site, www.jz-rose.com (formally the Outback Boutique).

JZ Rose is a treasure chest that offers vintage-style gifts and collectibles, home furnishings, fine antiques, and everything beautiful. JZ’s personal love for fine art, timeless antiques, and the nostalgic romanticism of the Victorian style inspired her to create a store where she could share the things she loves with other people.

The JZ Rose store in Yelm attracts shoppers from California to New York and Canada.”

‘”With this store I want to keep the magic and awe of Christmas alive all year long,’ JZ said. ‘I want you to feel like a little child the moment you walk into the store or visit our web site.’”

“JZ designed the Virtual Village web site in collaboration with H. Hargrove, one of America’s most popular living artists. Hargrove painted the four seasons of the village scenes from JZ’s vision. The JZ Rose web site (formerly the Outback Boutique) won third place in the 2005 Horizon Interactive Awards for design. IBM received second place in the same category from this prestigious international competition.”
