Know Your Neighbor Karleen’s Kaleidoscope makes shopping fun with a colorful array of new and used items Since retiring earlier this year, Karleen Sollenbarger is delighted to have more time to work on her crafts. She especially loves to tole paint, work with silk flowers, and create something decorative and useful out of things that others consider throw-away. She knows there are a lot of other talented, creative people in Delta County so she decided to open a store where everyone could sell their creations and quality collectibles. In May, she opened the doors of Karleen’s Kaleidoscope at 11468 Highway 65 in Eckert. In addition to handmade items by local crafters, Karleen’s Kaleidoscope features a wide variety of new and gently used gifts and home decorating ideas. This is not just another secondhand store — Karleen’s Kaleidoscope is a fun, festive place to shop for jewelry, gifts and items for your home. There’s even a Christmas corner for those who can’t get enough of the holiday festivities. Karleen is delighted to specialize in quality products made in Colorado, many right here in Delta County. New items purchased for future stock will not be imports or cheap imitations. Karleen believes in buying locally. When you can find quality merchandise at reasonable prices, there’s no excuse for not shopping locally. To make shopping even more fun, she will be offering discount punch cards for repeat customers and has already come up with some great ideas for seasonal and holiday sales. Karleen offers 70/30% consignment on quality handmade items, plus new and used household items in marketable condition. To learn more, give her a call at 210-9402 or stop by the store during business hours, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Karleen is happy to schedule appointments with groups of three or more who would like to visit the store Tuesday and Wednesday. Just give her a call at 210-9402. Karleen’s Kaleidoscope has a little bit of everything, and the inventory changes frequently so you’ll want to stop in often to see what’s new. Karleen Sollenbarger recently retired after working at the Delta County Sheriff’s Ofﬁce/Communications Center for 21 years. Now that she has more time for crafting, she decided she also needed an outlet for her creations. She opened Karleen’s Kaleidoscope in Eckert earlier this spring.
