On Friday evening, July 11, from 5 to 7 p.m., Tehachapi Treasure Trove will hold an open house to celebrate the changing of the guard.

Come help us say thank you and good bye to Janet Meabon, who is retiring as a partner effective Aug. 1. Janet has been a major player in the development and growth of the Treasure Trove. Janet will remain as a vendor and occasional relief worker.

Come help us welcome Dawn Callahan and Steve Headrick who will be Treasure Trove partners effective Aug. 1. They have already proven to be a great addition to the team.

Wine and refreshments will be served.

Tehachapi Treasure Trove first opened on Mountain Fest Weekend, August 2012 after two months of hard preparation. Sandy Thoman, Mel White, Janet Meabon and Susanna Monette were the initial founders of the store. Sandy left at the end of 2012 due to health reasons. Janet, Mel and Susanna continued to oversee the ever changing ever growing Treasure Trove from January 2013 to the present.

Janet has played an important role in the creation and growth of the Treasure Trove. As an artist, she makes beautiful pieces out of polymer clay and other materials. Her work ranges from jewelry to wall hangings and sculptures. She has also supplied many scrap booking items to fill in the gap left by the closure of Picture Perfect. Janet has opted to be released from her role as partner effective Aug. 1. She will be missed, but will still have a presence in the store.

Dawn Callahan has been a vendor and teacher at the Treasure Trove since shortly after the store opened. Dawn creates unique jewelry and teaches basic jewelry design and techniques.

Dawn's husband, Steve Headrick, has assisted Dawn with some of the metal work that is used in her jewelry designs. Steve has also helped with many repairs and tasks at the store. Together they created Mountain Hookers using recycled shoes mounted on a plaque to use as a coat hook. Dawn and Steve have collectables at the Trove as well. They will be a welcomed addition to the management team.

Tehachapi Treasure Trove is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Treasure Trove will be closed on Friday, July 4. The store is located at 116 E. Tehachapi Blvd., across the street from the Water Tower. For additional information, call 822-6794 or visit our Facebook site at facebook.com/TehachapiTreasureTrove.

The Treasure Trove carries a collection of uncommonly eclectic and unusually unique stuff including an extensive line of art and craft supplies, and artist services in addition to local arts, handcrafts, jewelry, antiques, collectibles, gift items and more.
