Dreams really do come true
At Linda's Dream Shoppe
Hello Norwich and Upper valley readers
This is a story of an old house on Route 5 South heading towards Wilder that has kept the owner busy for a while, but what a transformation it has become. The gnomes and many bird houses that are displayed on the property caught my attention and I needed to find out more. If you want to find out more about this unique property click the archive link below and then enter Gnome Sweet Gnome in the search field. Another story is ON my way Gnome and can also be found here.
And now you will see her dream come true by reading the rest of the story
This story is about Linda finding her dream right in the middle of the pandemic.
It has always been a dream of mine to have a shop to sell hand crafted things, hence the name. All of the Items in the shop has been crafted by myself or a family member, we all enjoy working with our hands. From me, my husband, Daughter, Daughter-in law, Nephew, to my grandchildren we all have different interests from bird houses, jewelry, crafts, pottery, stain glass, to making artisan soaps. We also have 'Grammies Beelicious' honey from our Bees. We have made centerpieces, favors for weddings showers and items for other special occasions.
When the pandemic hit we had a lot of time on our hands (like the rest of the world) so we started painting and putting maps down on the floor fixing up an area on the back of the house, it kept us busy and on May 1 of this year we opened. Its been a lot of hard work but fun making great memories in the process. We are open from 10-5 and will open the shop if someone comes by and rings the door bell on the shops door. There is always something new, we hope you stop by!
She is always ready to sell you one of her items in the shop and she does it with a smile all the while.
Lot’s of handcrafted items to choose from
It looks like Teddy is enjoying the tub and a whole lot more.
A stairway nicely decorated with more fine items
The entrance to adventure shopping
And this is the actual floor and you don’t need GPS to find your way in or out
And it sure is a happy place to shop.
Don’t worry Bee Happy says it all especially these days
Neatly stacked and ready to use when needed
A nice home for the clucks and a bit noisy at times I bet.
They seem to be enjoying the view and the day
Take a moment to stop in and say hello and give her dream shop a try. You may walk away with a smile, and a few handcrafted items to enjoy for yourself or give as a gift for the holidays.
Thanks for reading the story
