DAYVILLE – There’s a new outlet for talent in Dayville.
Twisted Treasures and Gnarly Goods, located at 150 E. Franklin St., features a variety of locally made artwork and other goods.
Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday.
Linda and Hand and her husband, Tony, own the business, and she says friends and family members inspired them to open the store.
“I know so many people in this community, in Grant and Wheeler counties, that are so talented,” Linda said. “It didn’t seem like anyone was getting anything sold, and Dayville needs extra commerce.”
The store’s name comes from the juniper furniture it features – including lamps, end tables and coffee tables, and coat and towel racks.
Tony makes most of the juniper items. In all, 26 artists are highlighted in the store.
“There’s room for more,” Linda said.
Other items include horse shoe art, photography, paintings, carvings, jewelry, gift cards and more.
The store also offers Eberhard’s ice cream – shakes, too – local honey, produce from the Hands’ garden, and a growler station featuring Barley Brown’s, Wicked Cider and Iron Horse Brewery’s Irish Death ale.
The Hands have lived in Dayville for 16 years and Linda has been the head cook at Dayville School District for 12-13 years.
The new shop is getting positive feedback, she said.
“There are so many talented and gifted people in town,” she said. “I thought, why not do it in Dayville – what a great little store front.”
