Tarrot Readers and More!!
So, just who is the face behind Barefoot Gypsy? Some may answer “the purple-haired witch behind the counter”. Well yeah, but truthfully, there isn’t just one face…but several.
David and I have wanted a shop like BG for many years, just didn’t know how or where to begin. We LOVED spending time in Wildflowers, a small shop in South Charleston. We loved the energy and really enjoyed talking with Carolyn, Gale, Carrie, Tammy and all the customers. We loved searching through the books, jewelry, cards and other items packed in the shelves. We mostly loved listening to Carolyn’s stories! So, the first face that needs mentioned is Carolyn Rexroad of Wildflowers, for without her love and support, Barefoot Gypsy would have never been born.
Of course the next faces to be mentioned are those behind the counters, David, and myself (Paula), and our wonderful BG helpers.
The other faces are those of our faithful customers and people who have helped us along this path in one way or another. After all, TRIBE is everything!
BG was birthed in a Milton Flea Market booth, mostly out of necessity. We often dreamed and talked about finding a larger space, a brick-and-mortar shop. We finally took the leap May of 2021 and opened in the Milton Plaza Mall. It was a genuine work of the heart, and worth all the sweat, blood and tears that were spent and spilled in the process!
We look forward to growing and look forward to the next chapter nine this beautiful book called Barefoot Gypsy. The best is yet to be because we choose to live each day by our motto “life is WAY too short to live without Magick!”
