Welcome to the informational website for Back on the Racks Consignment Boutique.
I am the second owner of Back on the Racks, which Rocky Bedell opened in 2008.
I am a recent transplant to California from Missoula MT. When my daughter and her husband decided to move to Bakersfield, I was right behind them with my Suburban and utility trailer in tow! They are the parents of my beautiful granddaughter and handsome grandson...Where my grandkids go..I go. When Back on the Racks became available, I knew it was my destiny! I still see my grandkids as often as I can...I just have a little drive.
In addition to my grandkids, I have two grown children. My daughter lives in Bakersfield (her husband is a RN at a hospital there) and my son still lives in Montana. I worked for many years as a nurse in a family practice clinic, then in pharmaceutical sales. My favorite career has been as a small business owner of consignment boutiques. I have owned two other consignment stores: my first was in Medford, OR and the second in Missoula, MT.
I grew up in a small town, Worden Montana (ever heard of it???) on a sugar beet farm. I have loved clothes and shopping for as long as my memory takes me back! In high school I designed and sewed all of my own clothing. I was voted "Best Dressed" in my high school senior "Hall of Fame" I began shopping second-hand stores while in college. I have to admit that I have been a second-hand addict since then, and I rarely go inside a mall. I LOVE the hunt for treasures!
I am very excited to become a part of the Atascadero community. I have met so many nice people here...and know I will meet many more! Please stop in and say HI! I would love to meet YOU!!!
A Warm Welcome
From Ivy, Proprietor
