Ribbon Cutting for Ye Olde Girls Shoppe
Ye Olde Girls Shoppe held a ribbon cutting for its opening with support from the Liberty County Chamber of Commerce on June 10, 2014 at 1458 Airport Road.
Chamber Administrative Assistant Lisa Davis welcomed the business to the Chamber and the community. Mayor Thomas noted that he was very thrilled to have an antique business in the community. Before cutting the ribbon Shippey said, “We are two strong, independent women and the sky isn’t even the limit for us.” Judy Shippey and Colleen Lange welcomed friends, family, Chamber staff and the mayor. Refreshments and snacks were offered to those who attended the event.
Ye Olde Girls Shoppe offer items such as antiques, literature and crafts. “We sell a lot of unusual and unique items that you wouldn’t necessarily find around here”, said Lange.
“I owned an antique store for 13 years in North Carolina and moved to Georgia about 8 years ago. I’ve known Judy through church groups and she had asked me if I was interested in doing this with her, so of course I said yes”, said Lange who also spoke of how glad she was that so many people were in attendance. “There aren’t any places in town that offer inspirational items or antiques, so in winter we decided that it was a good idea to pursue this business”, added Shippey.
The business hopes to hold community and art events at their business. “We have such a beautiful location here and it creates a very relaxed and pleasant experience”, said Shippey.
