Poopsie's, a Galena staple is closing.
The owners are retiring.
Now that probably makes a lot of people sad.
It's too early to say if I will miss it.
They had some great merchandise.
I was usually interested in their selection of Sticks art pieces.
On the other hand, I wasn't a fan of the way they did business...
a bit too much attitude.
I think there are some fabulous stores and some fantastic shop owners in Galena that will step to fill in the void.
If you are in the area be sure and stop in to see a couple of my fave's:
Carlotta's -my number one stop for reasonably priced but wonderfully unique clothing finds.
Timothy's On Main - another great clothing boutique with amazing jackets and jewelry - a little bit of New York in the midwest.
Pollyhop's - has that whimsical twist on home accessories. Maybe they will take on the Stick's line?
Simply Elegant - clothing, jewelry and handbags to make you swoon.
Brio's - a small jewel of an art gallery featuring talented but affordable artists.
Lulu's - where else can you find great shoes for $29.00? Gotta love that.
Galena Canning - Chef Ivo's tasty creations that you can take home.
... and that's just a few that come to mind.
No, Galena will be just fine.
In the meantime I have taken advantage of Poopsie's departure sale.
A major Stick's score-
This shelf can sit on top of a flat surface or be hung on the wall and I love this red.
Great details in these pieces.
I also came home with with these two heart throbs.
Oh yeah, happy shopper.
Be sure and stop in if you are in the area and snag a few bargains of your own.
