COTTONWOOD – Hank and Kathleen Klein took over ownership of the Gingerbread House Quality Consignments Feb. 1 at 115 S. Main St. in Cottonwood. The store has 35 vendors renting booths and space.

Consignments include antiques, collectibles, home décor, crafts, art and homemade fudge.

The Kleins owned a similar store in Mountain Home, Ark., for two years. They closed that store to move to the Verde Valley. They also previously owned an antique store in Colorado.

They are starting out operating the store themselves. Hank said they hope to be able to hire two people within six months.

“We have already expanded to the upstairs of the building,” Hank said.

“We currently have consignors from Camp Verde, Sedona, Clarkdale, Flagstaff, Prescott Valley, Prescott and Cottonwood,” Hank said.

“Our homemade fudge is unique, no other consignment stores have that,” he said.

Hank said the original Gingerbread House sold crafts and homemade fudge for 20 years.

“When we bought the fudge business, the original owner trained us with the original recipes – real butter and cream,” Hank said.

Hank said he and Kathleen believe the Verde Valley will continue to have a growth rate that will not overly strain the infrastructure system.

“The weather will continue to be a main attraction,” he said.

“We are trying to make our store attractive and bright with a wide variety of items that are reasonably priced,” Hank said. “We also hope to continue the Gingerbread House reputation for quality fudge.”

The Gingerbread House will hold its Grand Opening with a chocolate fountain and drawings and prizes Thursday through Saturday.

Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Call (928) 649-0996.
