As I grew up in family businesses and earned a degree in Business Management, it has always been my dream to own my own business. Specifically, a gift shop. In Iate 2016 when the perfect location and building became available I thought it was meant to be that my dream come true. Our door opened in April 2017.
Was the name previously Something Old, Something New?
This answer starts with a little history from the Something Old, Something New name. When we were in the planning process for the gift shop we never thought that a gifts and decor only place could survive in our cozy little town. The initial thought was that we would have to supplement gifts with rehabbing and selling old furniture, hence Something Old. However, because of you, our loyal customers, the vision for the store evolved. For quite a while I have been wanted to update the store name to reflect my refreshed vision. While I have a website during the Stay at Home Order in March of 2020 I thought it was pointless to create a new website domain only to change it in a few months...
The store has truly become a reflection of me including tastes, interests, etc. and I love the simplicity of the new name, Sarah's Shop. Rest assured though nothing else has changed we are still the same great family owned gift shop with something for any occasion.
