Sharyn’s Upscale Consignment Boutique, 29 W. Victory Way, recently closed its doors.



The clothing outlet, which offered shoppers the chance to trade old apparel for new, had its last day of business Jan. 11.

“It’s kind of a bittersweet thing,” owner Sharon Martin said. “I’ve really loved this and my customers, all the laughter.”

Martin first opened Sharyn’s — featuring a quirky twist on her name in the title — in spring 2010. She said she has been splitting her time between the store and Jones Trucking, the business run by her husband.

“Both the businesses exploded at the same time, and I just had to make a choice,” she said.

She will now focus her attention on the trucking business, running operations from home.

“It’s really been keeping me extra busy, so now I can work from home and be with my son,” she said. “He actually knows more about women’s clothes than women do from being (at the store) all the time.”

She first planned to close about four or five months ago and has been in the process of finishing business duties for the last month.

“It’s gone by pretty quick,” she said.

The process included selling unconsigned items in her inventory to a buyer from Denver and notifying regular customers to cash in their consignment credit or pick up items they didn’t want donated.

Customers who have not yet closed out their accounts should see a check in the mail this week.

Martin said she wished to thank the community for their support and to continue supporting similar second-hand shops in Craig and Steamboat Springs.

For any questions about the store’s closure, email Martin at Sharynsconsignment@yahoo.com.

Chamber announces contest winner

Bringing crowds to Northwest Colorado isn’t a difficult task when you know what to emphasize to tourists. Promoting the area is even easier when businesses and agencies band together for a sizable effort.

The Craig Chamber of Commerce recently announced the winner of its big-game hunting contest. The recipient of the Dec. 29 drawing is Larry Langdon, of Bakersfield, Calif.

Langdon’s prize, valued at about $5,000, includes a guided hunt with Elk Horn Outfitters, a guaranteed hunting license during the 2012 season, four nights at the Holiday Inn of Craig, post-hunt services by Mountain Meat Processing and a gift certificate for a dinner at the Tin Cup Grill.

Langdon could not be reached for comment.

Chamber executive assistant Rebekah Greenwood said Langdon was overjoyed to learn about his win when contacted.

“He was just so surprised because he said he wasn’t expecting it,” she said. “He had just walked right in the Chamber office off the street when he registered during the hunting season.”

Greenwood said response to the contest was positive, with 111 entrants purchasing tickets at $30 apiece.

“We even had somebody who bought 10 tickets just for themselves,” she said. “The primary idea of the whole thing is to get people talking about hunting in the area.”

Greenwood said the Chamber has considered increasing the number of available hunts as prizes for future contests. Attracting tourist attention beyond the hunting season is also a possibility.

“We’re working on coming up with summer packages for a different market,” she said. “Something like a cabin rental, a chance to see the horses in Sandwash Basin, tours of the area, things like that.”
