The newest consignment shop in Gillette already has a waiting list for vendors.
Red Daisy Gifts opened up on Highway 14-16 next to Long's Plumbing in March. The owners have been handling similar ventures for years, but the new boutique is ready to go with merchandise from 36 vendors.
"We have room for maybe two more small vendors," said co-owner Jen Skinner.
We welcomed Red Daisy to the Chamber on April 13 with a ribbon cutting, as they held an open house at their store. All 800 square feet was packed wall-to-wall with customers, Energizers, and fans.
"It's been a good experience and it's helped business grow," says Stephanie Bryce.
The boutique offers homemade craft items as well as retail, spanning from canned goods and clothing to home decor and skin care.
They are open Wednesday - Saturday, 10-5 during the weekdays and 10-4 on Saturday at 1604 E. Hwy. 14-16.

They'll be expanding soon in to electronics recycling and destruction. If you're interested in obtaining their services, please check out their listing in our membership directory.
Healthy eating is a family affair for Sarah Lehmann. She opened Bliss Nutrition in January, as a place for Gillette to not only grab a tasty treat, but as somewhere to learn about nutrition and to exercise as well.
They have dozens of healthy drinks on their menu, with special flavors all the time.
"We have a meal replacement smoothie, 200 calories and 24 grams of protein. It could be a meal replacement or just a healthy snack," says Sarah.
Bliss also provides individual health coaching, weight loss coaching, sports nutrition, and healthy weight gain support. Right now they're doing a "Biggest Loser" weight loss challenge, and starting March 13, from 6 a.m. until 6:45 a.m., they'll be doing a HIIT (high-intensity interval training) program in the store. They also have Herbalife supplements. Sarah's partner Andrew Kruger has lost 80 pounds since June, and she has lost 45 pounds since having their last baby.
Bliss Nutrition is open Monday through Thursday 6:30 a.m. - 7 p.m., Fridays 6:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., Saturday 10 - 2 p.m. They are located in the Camel Plaza, 900 Camel Drive, Suite H.

This year's Galentine's Day was marked with a ribbon cutting at Wyovision's new location in the RC Ranch community on Running W Drive. Dr. Joseph Katschke helped expand Wyovision in to Gillette from Sheridan, and a year and a half ago took over the practice. This February not only has the business moved in to a beautiful new storefront, but they will be adding a second doctor.
Currently their hours are Monday through Thursday 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Fridays 8 to 3, but starting February 27, adding a second doctor to the practice means they'll be expanding their hours. In addition to celebrating their new address on February 13, Dr. Katschke had a birthday on February 10.
KOAL radio and Papa John's graciously provided pizza and other snacks for our hungry Energizers today. There are also drawings going on in-store if you stop by this afternoon.
On February 9, Todd Butzine Insurance joined the Campbell County Chamber of Commerce. Todd has been in business for 25 years selling auto, home, and life insurance. Our Energizers filled his office to welcome him to our business and networking community!
Todd and his wife were surprised at the number of volunteers and committee members we have at the Chamber, and how much we do for Campbell County. They are excited to support the Chamber's events and see where their new membership will take them.
Todd Butzine State Farm Agency is open Monday through Friday from 9 to 5, across from Starbucks on 439 Prairieview Drive.
Chris Leatherman is an FAA certified drone operator, and manned student pilot. His company, Aerial Solutions of Wyoming, was started in order to provide aerial footage and videography services for real estate companies, non-profits, and special events.
Chris cut the red ribbon on his Chamber membership this afternoon in the Chamber board room.
"Primarily what I do is storytelling with the drones," he told our Energizers. "Whether it's about an upcoming event, someone's house, or a non-profit, I'm using the eye in the sky instead of a ground camera."
Some of the key businesses that Aerial Solutions like to work with are special events like fun runs -- he's previously filmed the Peanut Butter 4K for Club Energize -- and construction and real estate services.
"It's a starting business, so I'll be experimenting with things."
Each project has a flat rate fee, based on what kind of photos and video you need. Aerial Solutions can even create models of your home or construction project if you need it.
The drones are FAA registered, and they can't fly within five miles of the airport. But no matter where you are in Northeast Wyoming, Aerial Solutions can help you.
Visit them online at airofwy.com or give them a call at (307) 299-9769.
Every member that joins the Chamber of Commerce is entitled to a ribbon cutting event. Our Chamber Ambassadors, the Energizers, attend ribbon cutting events to network and learn about your business. You get to use the big scissors and cut the red ribbon on your Chamber membership!
