Sharon opened her first store, on the Square in Georgetown, Texas in 1984. It was called Wardrobe Unique and specialized in ladies apparel. Over a period of 29 years, her business morphed and grew from the women's clothing store Wardrobe Unique to a clothing and gift shop called Something Unique, then finally to a 5000 sq ft. gift store called Wonderful Things. She enjoyed the good fortune of dedicated staff who shared her beliefs about delivering on excellence in Customer Service which enabled her to be a viable part of the Georgetown community which she very much enjoyed. During her 29 years she also served in many civic organizations such as the Chamber of Commerce, the initial Travel & Tourism board, Rotary and many community improvement projects.
In 2003 she decided to move back to her hometown of Comanche, TX yet she still kept her store, Wonderful Things, in Georgetown. Each month she would drive back and forth to Georgetown to maintain her store, host special events and collaborate with her staff. In 2013, she decided she was ready to give up the driving, but not the store, so she relocated Wonderful Things to Comanche. The store opened March 20th in a much smaller location on the north side of the square in Comanche at 117 W. Grand. Her daughters thought she was finally going to slow down a bit and enjoy the slower pace that living in Comanche brings. Yet, true to her ways, it didn't take long before she felt her business busting at the seams and instead decided a larger space was in order! This led to moving the store to it's current location on the west side of the square at 111 N. Houston Street.
Wonderful Things welcomed shoppers at the new location on May 17th 2014 and continues to be a viable part of the Comanche community.
When it comes to her business, she is passionate about 3 things:
Now, Sharon brings her passion, years of experience and vision of “what is possible” to Comanche.
It's good to come back home!
