Christy Schobey O’Brien has had a dream for years to start a business.
In April 2021, she was given four real estate properties in Bronson, located in the westernmost town in Bourbon County.
“My first intention was to open (a place) to showcase my t-shirt company,” O’Brien said.
“It turned out being more,” she said.
On July 2, she began work on a consignment store at Hwy. 54 and Charles Street in Bronson to be called Highway Dreams.
“Once we are able to finish the inside, we plan to house homemade items by local artists and vendors,” she said. “For now, we will be showcasing locals only.”
She currently says her consignment offerings are furniture, clothing, jewelry, books, and crafts.
“Weekends we plan to have all friendly faces set up, yard sale style,” she said. “I plan to have tables and racks and a clothesline. Bring your tent and chair if you need shade and do not sit in the grass.”
August 5 is the tentative opening date of the venture.
