In "These Spiritual Window-shoppers," the Tajikistan poet Rumi tells those who are content to just stare into windows, and handle wares, " Even if you don't know what you want, buy something to be part of the exchanging flow..."
The same might be said to customers unsure of Danville's first day spa named for the poet. Owner Aneela Bux wants everyone in the community to come in and experience her salon and spa that is housed in the Danville Convention Center on the U.S. 150 bypass.
Now open, there are three stylists and six massage therapists on staff. Down a linoleum-covered floor, the doors of the spa open to a copper-toned floor and chandeliers. Candlelight flickers on tables for customers in waiting areas. It is designed for relaxation.
Stylist and salon manager Jody Robinson says it works. She has been cutting clients' hair since Saturday, and said the new space has "amazed" her customers.
