Jackalope Trading Company puts its brand on Monticello Art and Jewelry Market
The antlers would make it seem almost impossible for them to burrow, what is their habitat?There may be more questions than answers about the taxidermy Jackalopes available at Jackalope Trading Company.
There were a lot of questions when Adam and Mindy Redd found themselves wrangling a major lifestyle change. The answer, they decided, was opening some kind of business blending her background as a jeweler, silversmith and photographer with Adam’s skills and determination. They were the skills and determination handed down from several generations of those who knew how to make things work in San Juan County. A Jack-of-all-trades spirit combined with an iconic Western lifestyle was the inspiration for this Jackalope.
After they moved past the concept stage things happened pretty fast. “We approached the owners of the building we had in mind. To our surprise, they sold us the building and everything went quickly from there.” Explained Mindy. “I think they sold us the building in November 2016 and we opened our doors in June 2017”.
The building was gutted and renovated. Adam spent a month just getting layers of history off the floor and down to bare wood. A new facade and Jackalope Trading Company slid right in like it had been there all along.
Mindy on the allure of the Jackalope: “Shoppers are really amazed at the variety of inventory we have in the store. While they gravitate toward our selection of local art, and probably my jewelry in particular, they also walk laps around the store, taking everything in and seeing new things at each turn.” Jackalope Trading Company.
