Fashion-forward customers know they can find high-quality, high-end purses inside Lovin My Bags at 704 Center St. Now, they can find all-natural beauty products and, later this month, they'll be able to cap their shopping trip off with a refreshing, healthy beverage.

Barbara Crouthamel is turning the Center and North Seventh streets corner into a "destination for organic." She recently took over the middle unit to open Naturally Organics, which offers organic and vegan products - predominantly skin care (some of which she created) - as well as spa products and baby shampoo.

Crouthamel said her items were not tested on animals and are sulfate and paraben free. Some of her soaps are USDA-certified organic, while others are made of natural ingredients such as goat milk, pure honey and coffee grinds (which is a natural exfoliant).

In the third unit, which faces St. Peter R.C. Church, Crouthamel intends to open an organic juice and coffee/tea bar right around Thanksgiving. Inside, Crouthamel will offer beverages, smoothies and hot soups. She'll have ample seating and an upscale design.
