Tara Thompson and Sandra Milne, opened Two Wild Sisters,
in year 2000. Tara is from Houston Texas, and has lived
in Summit County for most of her life, Sandra, is from
Great Britain, she migrated to USA some 15 years ago.
We both go together in 1996, and decided to make Tara's
"American Dream" come true.
Tara has always wanted to have her own retail store
in the Rockies, as she was born into retail through
the family business in Buena Vista, Colorado. Sandra
had a back injury in 1999, and had to re think her career
so self employment seemed to be the only answer.
Then we had to choose a name for the store, so, here
is a little it of history, Sandra Milne found out that
her ancestors had lived in Breckenridge way back in
the 1800's and there still stands a "Memorial Park"
in Breckenridge, with their names on it, Alice and Eleanor
Milne. After some in depth research, Sandra found out
that they were sisters, and that Alice was once a teacher
in Denver, CO.in the early 1800's. So Sandra and Tara
both went to visit the memorial park, only to find out
that they had both died in 1860, with no family to inherit
their new found fortune of the Rockies. Therefore they
left all their estate , to the Town of Breckenridge,
which still stands intact to this day. They also were
the early founders of what is now known today as the
Breckenridge Historical Society.
So, Tara and Sandra were visualizing one day, what
must it have been like to live here in Breckenridge
in the 1800's. We came to the conclusion, that it must
have been pretty "wild". That was it! Why
don't we name our store "TWO WILD SISTERS"
in memory of the two MILNE sisters from the 1800's.
Plus we are both a bit wild ourselves, and both have
sisters in our families.
So, TWO WILD SISTERS was created, and then we thought
what should we sell? Because, Breckenridge is a Tourist
Town, and Excellent Ski Resort, we decided to stock
something different other than SKI APPAREL, like most
stores in Breckenridge. We decided on Native American
Jewelry and very amusing Unique Gifts, Posters, Bev
Doolittle Artwork, and much more.
We hope you find this of interest, and LETS GO SHOPPING
now with TWO WILD SISTERS.COM.
