Originally published in Seacoast Online.

After nearly 35 years of providing local and world-class aromas to its visitors, downtown Portsmouth establishment, Prelude, is up for sale. The stores history follows three like-minded owners all with unique takes on the stores direction, which has collectively produced the charming establishment it is today. The shop currently carries an array of locally made bath, body and gifts items.

Current owner of Prelude, Holly Landgarten, has been working at the shop for nearly 26 years. Her humble beginnings began with stocking shelves and manning the register to the current position she is now in. Landgarten’s passion for running a sustainably sound business has attracted many customers longing for quality soaps, lotions, and jewelry (along with other local products). However, Landgarten shows an appeal for importing fine products from many countries around the world. The braid of local and global products creates the perfect hybrid for a customer to find the perfect item within a single store. Landgarten exclusively carries products with ingredients that promote good health and ideal results for those who visit her store. Since the store has built itself a reputation as a sustainable business, Landgarten hopes to sell the establishment to a buyer that shares the same goal of providing their local community with sustainable and organic products.
