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
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
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.
