Soap Star Sells Shelves By the Seashore

Actress Genie Francis from General Hospital (she's the "Laura" of "Luke and Laura" fame) lives in Maine with her Star Trek actor/director husband Jonathan Frakes. She recently opened "The Cherished Home," a home-furnishings store on Route 1 in Belfast.
She had a habit of examining the furnishings on the "General Hospital" sets, she said [...], and she developed a keen interest in antiques and always dreamed of having a shop.

Francis decided to live out that dream once her young and restless family convinced the couple to move to Maine.

Los Angeles, she said, was far darker than Belfast. "It's not a gentle place to raise a child." [Link]
Francis will appear in episodes of GH this fall—the 25th anniversary of Luke and Laura's famous wedding.
