DELANO, MN The Sister Chicks have temporarily taken over a building on River Street in Delano.
One can’t help notice their handmade signs around town. With trendy handmade baby, children’s, and adult clothing, accessories, home decor, furniture, and much more, they offer many one-of-a-kind items.
Beginning as four sisters who are stay-at-home mothers and love to sew, The Sister Chicks now includes nearly 20 vendors.
Two years ago, when Angela Scheuble of Watertown, Joni Hendrickson of Kingston, Lori Homola of Minnetonka, and Amy Halme of Winsted, came up with the idea to sell their items they had no idea how popular their sales would become.
Usually, the sales take place in their homes a few times a year, but this year, the vacant building at 115 River Street became the perfect place for The Sister Chicks to open temporary shop.
Formerly the location of Emmer Law Firm, the building is currently for sale.
“One of the gals is related to the building’s owner,” said Lisa Anderson of Woodland Township, one of the nearly 20 vendors. “It seemed like a great place to hold a sale.”
The sale began Dec. 4, 5, and 6, and will continue with two final days this weekend. Visit The Sister Chicks Boutique and secondhand sale Friday, Dec. 12 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. or Saturday, Dec. 13 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
One may also sign up for their mailing list to be the first to hear about future sales. Though The Sister Chicks do not yet have a web site, they do announce their sales at www.craigslist.com, send out flyers, and put up handmade signs.
Featuring names such as The GunnySack, Me Oh My!, Baby Nana, Lippy and Prefere, Christmas-ware and home-baked goodies, there is surely something for everyone.
