New shop opens in Roscoe Village – UPDATE

| September 25, 2012

Kirsten Koenig, owner of Mountain Rose Trading in Roscoe Village, poses with one of her original hand-made dream catchers. Her store offers a variety of items, all with a Native American motif. Koenig hand-makes each of her items and no two items are the same. Her new shop is located below the Roscoe General Store.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Mountain Rose Trading in Roscoe Village is now closed.

Mountain Rose Trading, a new shop in Roscoe Village, had their open house on Saturday, Sept. 22 from 10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Owned by Kirsten Koenig, the shop is located below the Roscoe General Store and sells hand-made Native American products.

Koenig has been selling her items for several years at pow wows and has been in Roscoe for just under two weeks. Her store offers a variety of items, all hand-made and all with a Native American motif. She offers soy candles, goat milk soap, jewelry, clothing, throws, pillows, knives, purses, moccasins, hair pieces, and much more. She guarantees everything in the store is specially hand-made and unique.

“They’re all one-of-a-kind designs because I make them,” she said. “It’s not like I have a pattern for anything.”

Koenig said her inspiration for each of her pieces come to her in her dreams.

“I just dream it,” she said. “I just see it. I just see what needs to happen.”

One of Koenig’s goals is to bring in storytellers and flutists to her shop once a month to entertain her customers. She would also like to start offering bead-work classes.

“I just want people to know I’m taking hand-made items on consignment because I want this place to be like an old-fashioned trading post,” she said.

The store’s grand opening will be Saturday, Sept. 29 and Koenig will be there dressed in full regalia. She will also offer snacks and fry bread, an authentic Native American dish, at her grand opening.

Keonig has a degree in psychology and hopes to open the shop next door as her private practice. She also owned and operated a restaurant in Cadiz for three and a half years and used to be an independent Mary Kay Cosmetics consultant.

Mountain Rose Trading is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

“I have a basket full of prayer ties because my goal is to offer prayers for every person that comes in here,” she said.

Each of her braids are four-way braids, which she said represents mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical harmony. These four-way braids are incorporated in everything she makes.
