JOSEPH A 3-year-old business, the Sheep Shed LLC, opened its doors this week in what had been an abandoned storefront on the west side of Main Street since The Art Angle Annex moved out.
The business is listed under the sole ownership of Sally Brandt. The building into which the business has moved, about three blocks south of the original site of the Sheep Shed at 3 South Main, is owned jointly by Brandt and husband Ray DeLury.
The Sheep Shed sells a large variety of yarns, some of them hand-painted, plus fleece, art supplies, and many other items sold on a consignment basis.
We sell anything related to fiber, says Brandt.
Built in 1937, the new location originally was split between a barbershop with bathtub included and a shoe store.
Brandt says her husband has actively been renovating the entire building that previously was owned by an out-of-town woman not interested in maintaining the premises.
Although its likely a second business will share space in the two-part building, Brandt wished not to disclose the name of the primary candidate until the health inspector endorsed the compatibility of the two businesses.
Brandt said a guiding objective in the buildings rehabilitation was to return it to its original state.
