WHO IS BAREFOOT GYPSY???
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: Donnie, Chris, Joshua, Breanna and Mandy. We no longer have a Tarot Reader inside the shop, but Chris Pack has his beautiful Gypsy tent set up right beside us!
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!
One day, hopefully soon, we will find a larger space so that BG can spread her wings, stretch out and be larger & more beautiful...and be open more days in the week! We look forward to growing, and invite our Tribe to grow along with us, 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!"
