A glimpse into the daily happenings in the Funky Karma Magick Shop

Archive for the ‘New building’ Category

2nd Update for 2017,

We are super excited to announce new changes in the Funky Karma Annex.

From the first, when we acquired the second building, my plan was to use it to help others to start their own businesses.  I had a difficult time beginning my business career, 35 years ago, because no one would help or give advice to me, I had to find my own way, and I did but let me tell you it was a hard pathway.  For the last 4 years we have endeavored to make it easier for new startups by paying the advertising and insurance costs, co oping the utilities and rents that normally each business has to assume all by themselves and introducing new businesses to our loyal Funky Karma customers.  Some of the ones who began here have flourished before moving to other spaces and some not but each had a chance to learn how to run and build a shopping experience.  We have had ups and downs but overall I think my vision was a success.

But now is a time for the Funky Karma to move on and concentrate on what we do best and that is retail.  I have built a very successful business here by searching the would for unique products that our customers need, want and love.  And so it is with great pleasure that we announce the opening of the entire annex, making room for the superior and unique Funky Karma products that you are used to finding in the original shop!  We are out of the rental business, except of course for the classroom which rents space for classes and meetings.

The small room is now the Dragon Room, dedicated to all things dragon… incense, oils, statues, books, tarot cards, oracle cards, tapestries, tote bags, journals, jewelry, candles, incense burners, jewelry boxes, tea, tea sets, tea pots, cups, chalices, art and so much more. More and more merchandise is arriving daily, so check back often to see the new and unique.

Next, the Buddha Room is moving back into the front room of the annex. I found many new to us Buddhas and Quan yins, as well as other great items for this area.  You will love these new additions.

More news and new things will be up coming in a few days.

 

Space available for your small business

Funky Karma is still looking for a renter in the Annex, we have a small space next to the snack bar available for $90. a month or a large space in the front, with display windows available for $500. a month. Only dedicated and committed businesses are desired, someone who can be open the hours of Tuesday-Sat 10AM-6Pm and Sunday 11-3Pm. We have had other businesses in the Annex who chose not to be open all of the days and unfortunately they did not do very well. Customers get discouraged when they do not find the shops open when they come to shop. If you are serious about running a small business, come talk to me.

An opening in the Annex

Funky Karma has an opening in the Annex for your small business, first and last months rent required, a wonderful opportunity to start a business in an established community.  Call or come by for a look.

Here is the first picture of the newest building in our family!

We will get the key on the 15th and can’t wait… the first event in the new space will be the suitcase show on August 17 and 18.

No, you don’t buy the suitcase, you buy the special items inside them!  So far we are expecting jewelry, stuffed animals, aprons, baked goods, soaps and lotions, artwork, more jewelry, cards, maybe fractals, dishes, tarot bags, baby gifts and LOTS MORE.  Come on in to see the goods but also to see the building.  After the Suitcase Show we will be redecorating the building and have a grand opening in September, with 6 new shops and a great shopping experience.  here is a partial list of the new shops,

The Old Sol Gallery…opening with a display of art by Deborah Welch Prickett, Art by Eddie and Art by Eddie’s Grandma

Nanabelle’s Naturals…lotions and soaps.  This shop will be participating in the Suitcase Show , you can get a sneak peek!

The RosyKat…a great selection of gemstone jewelry and more.

Next week I will let you know the other 3 shops that will open in September.

Now here is the question of the day…what color should I paint the front door?  You remember the first location of funky karma had blue doors, heavily decorated with runes and flowers.  Our shop now has a red door also with runes and flowers.   The new door will have the shop names, and runes and flowers…we seem to have a tradition going here…but what color is the door?  I am thinking either turquoise or lime green but open to new ideas…what do you say?
