THE SHADY DAME?
We are a couple who have made Lebanon our home for 19 years. A bit on the eccentric side, we feel the need for a place in town where people can just come to explore our shop and find unique items, as well as having a few laughs. We pass no judgements and want everyone to feel welcome. There is no pressure to buy anything, just come in and have some fun.
Our shop name is derived from a Danish Rock Band named “Volbeat”, who wrote a song about a woman named “Lola Montez”, who was a Irish countess that came to America and became famous for her “spider dance”. An eccentric woman herself, she never played by the rules and was considered "shady" for her time. We love the song so much we even named our dog after her, so it just seemed natural to name the shop after her as well.
Our world today leaves many feeling lost and sometimes hopeless. Some groups of people feel better when they attend church, some that worship nature and find solace in walks, and some find peace in other avenues. We offer items to support a more “New Age/Metaphysical” point of view. We have crystals, clothing, incense, and much more. We welcome all walks of life and try to have literally something for everyone. And if we don't have what you're looking for right now, we may in a few weeks. The shop has a life of its own and is constantly changing and progressing.
We love to sell items with a cause, not only Fair Trade, but purchasing from companies that in turn donate to helping the causes they are passionate about. We ourselves are passionate about remembering our fathers, who fought battles in the sky and on land and try to honor our lost Veterans by donating to Wreaths Across America 6 sales days a year.
