About Purple Aardvark...

Sandy Casey and Carolyn Cherry have known each other for many years. As their kids grew up and they found themselves with more time on their hands, they merged their skills and started Purple Aardvark.

They opened the doors on Small Business Saturday 2016. The community loved the original handcrafted work. Many have referred to Purple Aardvark as a “Brick and Mortar Etsy”. We love giving local artists a place to sell their works. We couldn’t do what we do without the amazing talents of so many local artists.

Sandy Casey, a trained jeweler, creates and repairs jewelry of all sorts. Custom pieces and refurbishing of vintage family pieces are some of Sandy’s favorite projects to do.

We love the sense of community we have created in our cozy store. We have met and become friendly with people we

wouldn’t have met otherwise. We are proud to have friends of all ages because of Purple Aardvark.

Our goal was to create a fun place to come visit, but COVID forced us to start a webstore as well. We have a great representation of our stock on-line. We encourage our shoppers old and new, to check out our offerings.
