RICHFIELD — News is spreading fast around Washington
County about a unique business that opened recently in
the village’s downtown.
Dec. 13, Sarah Zomboracz and co-owner Katie Zellner
opened the Charmed Revival DYI Studio and Boutique, 1923
Highway 175 Unit C, Richfield, behind Two Brothers
“It’s been overwhelmingly positive since we opened,”
Zomboracz said Tuesday. “We had our grand opening this
weekend and it was great. March is already completely
booked up with workshops and parties and we only have a
couple days left in April.”

offer multiple types of arts and crafts workshops from
wood signs, to lazy Susans, we’ve done a clock workshop.
We have a woman coming in to teach alcohol ink painting.
We are offering knitting and crocheting classes coming
up. We have kid activities. We did embroidery with the
kids for Valentine’s Day,” Zomboracz said. “We can hold
birthday parties. We’ve had a couple of businesses come
in for their camaraderie event. We have Community
Memorial Hospital coming in on Tuesday. We will be going
like stenciling on canvas bags and pillows.”
Zomboracz said she and Zellner wanted to create a
general space for a creative outlet and to bring the
community together. “We also wanted to offer other
artists a place that they could come in and teach and
the public can come here can make their own home decor,”
Zomboracz said. “In addition to that we have the
boutique. We have a few local vendors selling some their
items in here and we do purchase them wholesale, but
that’s another option.”
business is open 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Wednesdays. They have a
calendar on their website that lists workshop hours.
“We’re happy to let people come in and shop during the
workshops. We also have an online boutique that people
can shop at,” Zomboracz said. “We’ll be increasing our
hours as time goes on and we see where the need is.”
Zomboracz said she and Zellner met because they both
have children who attend St. Gabriel’s School.
found we had mutual interests. We each wanted some kind
of creative space and that caused us to come up with
this idea,” Zomboracz said. “One conversation led to
another and here we are.”
Zomboracz said Zellner was creating wood signs out of
her home for a couple of years before this business
opened. She then started something called “Chalk Tour”
that is basically creating chalk signs.
started doing that with her. We originally were going to
do a little mobile boutique, with a vintage camper. We
were going to gut that and make it a little boutique,
but then we realized neither of us felt comfortable
backing it up,” Zomboracz said while laughing. “Then we
heard the wine bar was coming to this building and then
we saw a ‘for lease’ sign on the back of the building.
The location was perfect so we really had to decide in
moments in August.
“Everything went to fast so we didn’t really have time
to think,” Zomboracz said. “We got the keys to the
building Dec. 1 so Katie and I built our tables, our
shelving, the register and then we got help in putting
up ship lap on the office and on the entire back wall.
Zomboracz said she and Zellner are hoping to be part of
the growth occurring in Richfield’s downtown area.
hope we can bring people together to use their
creativity. I think Katie and I almost use that
creativity as a stress reliever. We use it to relax,”
Zomboracz said. “So to show people they can do that is
something great. We have this nice boutique area to show
off area vendors. We hope it’s a unique option for the
