BlackSheep General Store, 346 Park Avenue, Glencoe, IL. 847.242.0130
For months, my tiny town of Glencoe has waited excitedly for the BlackSheep General Store to open for business. On Friday, the brand-new, old-time shop will officially welcome customers at last.
I’ve had a sneak peek, and the goods are great! But my history with BlackSheep goes back a’ways. Owner Stephanie Macakanja and I dreamed up our new chapters in tandem. We attended the Sweets and Snacks Expo together in 2012. And then again in 2013.
We discussed our ideal spaces – me touring commercial kitchens for rent, her waiting patiently for just the right storefront. We shared notes on banking, on logos, on displays. Our businesses are fraternal twins – babies together.
What a thrill to have BlackSheep General Store selling Let Them Eat Candles! Stop in. Hang out. Remember, it takes a Village to raise a child.What a thrill to have the BlackSheep General Store selling Let Them Eat Candles! Stop in. Hang out. Remember, it takes a Village to raise a child.
