WICHITA — LaDonna West wants to make one thing clear about what she and her cousin, Sheri Sharp, will carry when they open their new west-side resale shop next month:
West says there are already plenty of shops for that.
A Little Bit of Everything will carry a little bit of everything else, though.
"Everything that you would buy at an estate sale pretty much," West says.
The shop is opening June 3 at 9428 W. Central, which is between Tyler and Maize Road.
West says Sharp has already been in the business online.
"She's been buying and selling on eBay for, like, 14 years," West says. "She's just accumulated so much stuff."
The idea, West says, is "to take her hobby and turn it into revenue."
Sharp has been living in Topeka but is moving to Wichita. In addition to the 1,400-square-foot store, West and Sharp will have an eBay store.
They'll sell furniture, home decor, art, garden decor, linens, bedding, glass and games.
"Everybody kept asking us, 'What are you going to sell?'" West says.
"It's a little bit of everything, so that's the name of the store."
