Whether you’re someone who enjoys exploring local shops, looking for something to do, a business owner, or thinking about launching a business, visiting Wicked Glass & Wanderlust Designs in Frankfort, Kentucky is a must. If you’re interested in self-care, spirituality, metaphysics, crystals, reiki, massage, or anything mystical, you definitely want to visit the downtown Frankfort, Kentucky Main Street shop!
But no matter your interests, visit the shop for the life lessons and eye-opening revelations you’ll find there. If you’re in a rut, or feeling a bit creatively stuck, or simply need a healthy pick-me-up, this is the place for you.
The owner, Belinda Davis-Lesniak, has a laid-back persona, allowing you to meander at your own leisurely pace throughout the store. Inevitably, I’ve watched customers gravitate toward the owner with questions or purchases, and become naturally engaged in conversations that span light small talk, questions about her eclectic products, to exploring metaphysical topics, and longer exchanges of a deeper sharing of personal stories.
The owner and her shop exude a positive vibe (and the store smells divine, too! Aromatherapy is real!) that seems to mystically draw people in, inward, yet simultaneously, toward an outpouring of the heart.
I’ve visited the shop several times, and I host YourCreativeChord’s self-care-themed inspiring nature photo products there. (You can also find my notecards, puzzles, posters, kitchen towels, T-shirts, and playing cards online by clicking here.)
Witnessing the friendly interactions between the shop owner and her customers, and having my own share of stimulating dialogue with Davis-Lesniak, has inspired my understanding of community-building.
The owner has an incredible knack for building a sense of community. Though she claims to be an introvert like me, she’s a natural at creating an authentic and irrepressible outflow of camaraderie.
Through this uncanny ability, she forges a network of vendors, local businesses, and individuals who in some way interact or contribute to Wicked Glass & Wanderlust Designs inventory or offerings. The owner is remarkably and enthusiastically always coming up with a new workshop, event, service, or collaboration with someone in the community.
This is an incredible lesson about how to network, build community and creative collaboration. Involving contributions from and giving to other individuals or businesses is an ingenious way to grow a business, create a movement, or simply expand your friendships.
Getting in the flow of a natural exchange, learning something new, or bringing something to contribute are all ways that bring a sense of community to anyone. This kind of interconnection with others is something that fuels creativity and boosts your emotion or mood.
That’s why I strongly urge anyone to visit Davis-Lesniak’s shop.
