That same daughter lives in Texas and Sandi makes several buying trips there a year, as well as Las Vegas for the gift items she offers. Her future vision for the store is to bring in more kitchen accessories and garden products and decor. Her style is a little cottage, a little rustic and she loves things with character and blemishes that show that someone has loved them and used them. Being in a small town adds quaintness to the experience. Her customers make it an excursion to come shop and have lunch at local restaurants and on the weekends, the clientele switches to couples out for a treasure hunt!
She also carries great baby items!
I think it's important that we support local businesses and especially businesses run by women, although Sandi gets lots of support from Jim. (I want to take pictures of these amazing doors he built for the Livery in back). Sandi's advice for other women business owners is to "buy what you like". She sometimes has a hard time parting with items she loves, but its even less fun to look at things that don't sell, that you don't like.
