Stacey’s Vintage*Art*Boutique began as a love for all things Original and One of a Kind!! I have always appreciated and supported the incredible talents of local artists and artisans of the area. My home is a testament to this long-time love and showcases many one of a kind creations.
Trained as a teacher, principal, and school psychologist, I spent 14 years working with at-risk youth at a residential treatment and educational center in Beresford. After the facility closed in 2009, I helped my husband manage our Demolition, Excavation, and Agricultural drain tile business for 10 years. During this time, I couldn’t help but think that there was something more that I should be doing. In the fall of 2018, a building we own became vacant, and during the marketing process, I received many calls from local artists and artisans hoping to rent space to sell their creations! Finally!! The pieces came together!!
This store provides an opportunity for the artists and makers to focus on creating and we take care of the management, marketing, and sales. We want to create a place where the vendors can sell their products year-round without worrying about the details that come with managing a business. We also hope to create a special experience for the shopper as well. A FUN place to find that thoughtful gift for someone they love or a one of kind piece for their own home!!
We also are featuring a new company that brings a new feel to Stacey’s store. Valarie will be moving her stones shop from Dell Rapids to our location in June. Check out her awesome products that will have at Stacey’s. https://www.facebook.com/SojournersStones/
I grew up in Avon on a farm with my three sisters. I graduated from Avon High School with track, volleyball, cross country, band, and choir under my belt. I then received my associates in management and business administration at Southeast Tech followed by my bachelors in Business Administration Emphasis in Management. I am currently going to National American University and I have one term left before i receive my Masters in Administration with an Emphasis in Management. It has been a lot of years of school but it has already paid off!
As far as work goes, I was a certified nurses assistant for 9 years. I then decided I wanted to get into the business world and worked at National American University for 2 years doing the financial aid help for students who needed it. While working there my aunt, Stacey, asked if I would be interested in managing a new store with a bunch of different vendors. I decided that I should put my degree to use and said yes!
Stacey’s is looking for more great vendors with unique, craft items to display and sell in our store. Are you interested in selling your art, handmade furniture, and other crafted items without hassle?
