It has been a number of years since I visited one of Madison ’s most unique venues, Burnie’s Rock Shop. I have been following them on Facebook, and was anxious for a return trip after seeing all the impressive photos on their page.
I made contact and a date was set with the lovely Reena. She was there to greet me in the warm and inviting shop. In fact, all of the staff were friendly and ready to answer any questions. You won’t find too many places like Burnie’s.
I was like a kid in a candy store. I started a “tray” for the goods I was preparing to buy. While walking around taking photos, I was introduced to one of the owners, the very personable and delightful Sonali Zaveri-Franke.
Sonali told me she is happy with the fact that people, such as me, are interested in local businesses. Sonali shared that she and her husband purchase their goods from local vendors as much as possible. In addition, the shop offers tours to the public including school groups. What a cool field trip that would be!
Would you like to impress your family and friends this holiday season? Then get yourself to Burnie’s Rock Shop for one-of-a-kind items including jewelry, books, fossils, rocks, pottery, crafts, and so much more. Outsmart those people trying to find parking and fighting large crowds at the mall by shopping at ONE extraordinary location.
