Just like the name says, "Varied Treasures" offers a unique array of antiques, collectibles, original artwork by Joyce Lee Petersen and Angela Rose Drake; custom jewelry and clothing designs by Debbi Anderson; furniture; lighting; china; crystal; books; Persian copper-smithing coffee and end table set (a must see); bronze and marble Remington sculpture; bibles sets; albums; knives; belt buckles; guy stuff; you know "cool stuff"!

Also, we offer massage with Trevin or Mallory at $35 per 50-minute session inside "Varied Treasures." Walk-ins are welcomed. Nights and weekends available.

We also carry Nature's Sunshine Product's (vitamin's/health) and Young Living Essential Oils.

The positive atmosphere and smiles when you enter are usually contagious along with a unique shopping experience. It reminds you of a little museum.

Fair prices! With the economy whether you spend a dollar or a thousand, money is tight for all of us. When I find a deal, I pass that deal onto my customers. I'd rather sell it than sit on it; and besides wheelin' and dealin' is fun! It breaks the ice!

The fact is you need to treat your customers with honesty and respect. I feel I treat people with a welcoming attitude and try to make them feel at ease and at home.

Coming from a large family I understand the diversity in all of us and try to accommodate the needs of my customers by going that extra distance to give make them feel a little special and where they will want to bring their friends and family.

Years ago I owned "HomeCraft" An Artisan's Emporium in Fruita and always dreamed of re-opening one day on Main Street. I opened "Varied Treasures" with all of 394 square feet at 123/125 S. Sixth St. (behind Main Street Bagels) in August of last year; it was a success from the start. With the sale of the building I had to relocate and was lucky to find 309 Main with almost 2,400 square feet; there is plenty of room to grow.

Well besides me! It would be drawing a blank and I mean a blank of making change. I had to get the calculator. Boy, did I want to crawl under the counter!

Yes, a couple and then some as I'm solicited. I always support C.L.A.W.S. and Bracelets for Autism. I support our local businesses with referrals and a 15% discount to business people of downtown.

Every day is a special day. We are opened from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Friday, Saturday 11 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sunday noon-6 p.m.
