Famous Marsha Brown’s in New Hope reopens as Oldestone
Everything old is new to the Main Street food scene in New Hope again.
Oldestone brings a long-awaited return of the former Marsha Brown restaurant.
Co-owners Michael Sklar and Wilfer Naranjo are part of a team of multiple owners who bring the space to life.
The building was originally a church built in the 1800s, and a 30-foot mural has graced the main interior wall since 2003.
The new owners have added spectacular lights that fill the space and can fade and change color depending on the occasion.
Marsha Brown has decided not to reopen after a lengthy closure forced by the pandemic. Passing the baton to Naranjo is bittersweet, as he started there as a food runner when Brown first opened his now famous restaurant eighteen years ago.

MinkeeBlue makes stylish bags for active women
Sherill Mosee, an engineering graduate from Drexel, is a Philadelphia-based entrepreneur who pursued her dream for years and now has a big deal up the sleeve.
After working in her profession for over a decade, Mosee decided to start a non-profit organization to help young mothers go to college.
After noticing how many bags they would be carrying – book bags, diaper bags, etc. – and how much she carried too, she designed a multi-compartment bag to hold everything.
It has expanded its product line over the years and has an office in a coworking space.
Recently, Mosee was selected to showcase her product to retailers on USA Networks’ new show, “America’s Big Deal”. It turns out that in the first episode of the first season, she won the contest and now has a deal with Macy’s.
