At RLS Media, we want to wish all our friends and family a Happy Thanksgiving Day! It's Najla again, with holiday deals in your local communities.
IT'S TIME! It's the holiday season again, folks, and you know what that means? Colder days, longer nights, sweater weather, and shopping! Yes, shopping for your loved ones, friends, family, and yourself.
Now, only some people like to shop at big name-brand stores all the time to shop for the season. At the same time, some take the time to give back to their community by supporting the small businesses that thrive there.
Why not feel more connected to your community during the holidays and support one another?
The season is about being there for your loved ones, supporting your community and local businesses, etc. Not just for saving money, but giving a chance to connect to someone new within your community during a time when people should be brought together, not separated, has a certain magic to it.
At least, that's how I felt speaking to this amazing person about their business and why they love what they do so much.
Carteret and its surrounding cities in Middlesex County are filled with small local businesses waiting for you to stop in.
As a new resident trying to find my footing here, it's incredible to see how close the people are with each other.
I enjoyed talking to Ebony Braswell about her family-oriented business, 'Three Brothers Paint and Chill.' This family-owned business is located at 120 Main Street, Woodbridge, where creativity and relaxation come to life!
Here, they can host various paint events for ages five and up.
The beauty of this establishment is every adult party gets a complimentary glass of wine. You can paint while sipping wine, paint and sing, or even attend a dinner party.
'Three Brothers Paint & Chill' is also an event space. Whether you choose to paint or not, this space is welcome for everyone to use, but the one rule is to leave your worries at the door, which is the 'Three Brothers Paint and Chill' motto.
'Three Brothers Paint and Chill' came to be during the pandemic when Ebony noticed a change in her family, specifically her children. Her family is very community-orientated in participating in anything involving the community or bringing people together in Woodbridge Township.
The change, like many other households faced during this time, was depression due to being isolated from society to stay healthy. Still, in doing so, she and her family missed out on feeling a human connection with others, she told RLS Media.
"I asked my son, who is very artsy, do you want to open up a 'safe haven?' I wanted him and his friends to come here to get away and make this place their second home," Ebony stated.
"After a while, my son didn't want it, and I took over and made a Paint 'n Sip event space! Which is how the name came about; it's named after my three sons!"
While creating a home away from home for her family and friends to enjoy during such an isolating time, she made 'Three Brother Paint and Chill.'
A community that is not just a business but a community space where you can relax and enjoy life for a moment.
"Painting is a sign of relief; it's relaxing and healing, which is exactly what I want to bring into this business," Ebony told RLS Media officials.

I discovered 'Three Brothers Paint and Chill' when my family used them to book a paint-and-sip party for my Mom's birthday party, and they were so amazing and generous with everything.
The artist catered to our music taste, made us laugh, and ensured everybody was having a good time and was proud of their painting!
