Jim Cellucci, Owner Great Harvest Bread Company, Newtonville, MA
Next time you come through Newtonville, stop by the Great Harvest Bread Co and try a complementary slice of bread. You will learn that different breads come out on different days. If you want to plan ahead, go to the website and read the schedule wickedgoodbread.com. My personal favorite is the apple pie which comes out on Saturday- yum! Last week when I stopped in for a loaf of the Multi-grain (had to have a slice while I was there) the store was busy with hungry patrons. A polite bunch of middle school kids sat around their backpacks eating lunch. A mother was reading a book to her twins in one corner. At the counter the owner, Jim Cellucci was working hard to please a sweet little lady who was asking for a sample of one of his specialties which hadn’t come out yet. Jim went back and forth fulfilling her request with a twinkle in his eye.
It is hard not to appreciate this cheerful model of business. A happy and energetic work ethic like this makes small busines great and contributes on a daily bases to the quality of life in a community. On the Great Harvest Bread Co website: www.wickedgoodbread.com, their unique mission statement states values that included hard work, excellent customer service, quality product, and generosity.
“Be loose and have fun Bake phenomenal bread Run fast to help customers Create a strong, exciting bakery Give generously to others“

Not everyone watches the HGTV and even if you do, that doesn’t mean you know how to prepare a home for the market. Not everyone understands the purpose of staging a home to sell. Barbara says, “The way you live in a home is different than the way you sell a house.”
“Home staging is the act of preparing a private residence for sale in the realestate marketplace. The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for more money.” ~Wikipedia.org
Staging techniques focus on improving a property’s appeal by transforming it into a welcoming, attractive product that will appeal to a variety of buyers. Lots of buyers will have trouble visualizing a living space filled with their personal belongings. This is where the staging comes in.
There is a range of staging techniques including virtual staging and the costs will vary. A good real estate agent/stager will work with the sellers to find the method and style that works best for them.
For example, picture a classic colonial home located in desirable Newton Centre. The object of the game is to arrange a select few pieces in the rooms to sketch a sense of welcoming space for prospective buyers. With a few pieces of furniture, some blow-up beds, and carefully chosen accessories, the home invites offers. This is not decorating, more like theatre set design creating a vibe.
