As visitors and residents stroll Tehachapi Boulevard in hopes of finding a unique vintage item for their collection, they now will have a wider variety with Sheridan's Boutique Home Consignment expanding its shop.
There was great community turnout for the grand opening and ribbon-cutting July 13.
The original shop opened in 2013, and now space isn't the only element that is changing.
"It gives me an excuse to buy fun pieces, and the other shop I had to be selective and couldn't mix certain styles," owner Virginia Sheridan said.
She added, "The whole point is to have something unique, interesting and that might be a nice vintage or old piece of furniture."
As the community visited and explored the new shop, art deco jewelry sparkled in the cabinets, a round antique couch was displayed, and other furniture gave everyone a first look at new items. As the journey continued, more than eight local vendors had vintage looking signs, lamps, kitchen items and Hollywood-style dresses. It also included a mix of new designer furniture.
As of now, "we are leasing the building and hope to reopen Kelcy's Restaurant in the near future," Sheridan said.
The addition of the 1,800- to 2,000-square-foot area is only a few doors down from the quaint original store. The shop brings in items from estate sales, auctions and consignments.
The store generates customers, and those who want to sell their items and downsize.
"It can help particularly those who are baby boomers and who want to downsize with retirement. They will benefit by coming here. I think it's a wonderful opportunity," said Karen Wilson, who attended the grand opening.
