I want to introduce you to Deb Ewoldt.
She is the owner/operator of this establishment.
She makes things like this.
piece of garden art.
And this fun piece.
Deb at work in the back of her shop.
Deb's work gear - leather gloves and apron.
In college she was a model.
Her dad was a welder in the small town of Dysart, Iowa.
One day she had a vision of this building being used by more than one enterprise.
She bought the building in 2006.
It now houses her shop, a lunch room and a classy home accessories store.
Several other shops line main street. I think all are owned or run by women.
I asked Mom if she had any ideas for a Father's Day gift
for Dad. After a couple of days she e mailed me with the idea of a sign
to put in the two lots they own next to their condo.
Since buying them last year they had cleaned up the lots
and flower bed. Mom now has a flower garden mixed with a few
vegetables for summer eating.
Dad has started referring to the lots as Hultman Park.
After Mom presented me with the idea I contacted my siblings to ask what they
thought about a group gift. After I got the go ahead, Mom and I made a quick trip to
Dysart to visit Deb. She had the perfect sheet of metal and went right to work.
I think this rates a "WOW".
