LIMA — A new business is opening in Lima, specializing in false eyelashes.

“It started with me launching my own lash line in 2017,” said Tavonna Pritchett, co-owner of Celebretee’z Lashti’Qu3. “I always said that I wanted a storefront. So my mother and father passed away. My mother passed in 2019, my father in 1995. So I’m an only child and I always told my mom that I would make this vision come true and I finally did.”

There is a wide variety of false eyelashes people can choose from.

“All different types of eyelashes. Over 20 different styles, over 112 different pair — lash brushes, lash glue, everything that’s going to have to do with eyelashes is going to entail this,” Pritchett said.

Pritchett and co-owner Mercedes Cunningham have known each other for quite a while.

“We have been friends since kindergarten,” Cunningham said. “She (Tavonna) wanted to show me the business aspect of it. So I figured why not jump in on it and see what it’s all about?”

Celebretee’z Lashti’Qu3 is located at 1102 W. North St., Suite AB.

A Lima Area Chamber of Commerce ribbon-cutting ceremony is set for 11:30 a.m. Thursday, July 29.

They’ll be open to the public on August 2.

Besides false eyelashes, the business offers customers beauty accessories like hair braids and bracelets.

Mercedes is a two-time college graduate and is using this platform to teach her 13-year-old daughter the meaning of hard work and also that she can do anything and be anybody she wants to be. Her bangle line “Na’Shae Bangles” will be featured in the store.

“We both are excited for our new journey and look forward to bringing high-end fashion beauty products and so much more to Lima,” Pritchett said.

Pritchett hopes the business takes off.

“My dream is to open up in Atlanta. That’s the next vision,” Pritchett said.

The business will be open 4 to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sundays 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and they’ll be open holidays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
