“If you love your job, it’s not work and I love my job,” Smith said.
Smith said the shop is different from other antique shops as space is not rented, with everything simply being “blended together.” Sassy Gals is chock full of antiques and hard to find items crammed into every corner, giving customers plenty to look at the consider.
“We’re just all little business owners combined under one roof,” Smith said. No one has any designated space. We just place things where they look the best.”
Smith sees no reason for expansion of the shop, as all the ladies there were sought out by Smith. Sassy Gals is also the “greenest” antique shop by repurposing of many items in ways you may not expect.
Smith said Powell did all the lighting in the shop, using creative ways to house lights. Smith said many of the antiques in the shop are primitive-style with some even going back to the pre-Victorian era.
