TONASKET – A successful run at area bazaars and rodeos over the spring and summer inspired Karla Stucker to set up shop with her new business, Country Crazy Cowgirl Bling, which she started up last February.
The business now occupies a portion of II Sisters Video Store in Tonasket at 415 S. Whitcomb Ave. Stucker will not be on hand all the time but items can be purchased from Country Crazy Cowgirl Bling during II Sisters’ business hours, Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-7:30 p.m; Friday, 9 a.m.-8 p.m.; and Saturday, 11 a.m.-8 p.m.
Country Crazy Cowgirl Bling offers handbags (including concealed weapons handbags), men’s and women’s wallets, sunglasses, belts, caps and hats, home decor, some clothing and various gift items.
Stucker took her products on the road to get things started, attending the Okanogan Soroptimist Bazaare and the Oroville Spring Bazaar, then the Methow Valley Rodeo both Memorial and Labor Day weekends, Junior Rodeos, the Tonasket Founders Day Rodeo, the Omak Stampede, and the Waterville and Okanogan County Fairs.
“Things went well,” she said. “People loved my products and prices.
“We hope to continue to build our product lines and are open to new ideas or suggestions.”
Country Crazy Cowgirl Bling will be hosting an open house during Tonasket Winterfest, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. At that point customers can make orders for Christmas and free coffee and cookies will be available.
Karla Stucker and her husband Rod live on ranch between Oroville and Tonasket. They have two boys at home (Chance and Riley) and three adult children (Alison, Pam and Trampas).
