New downtown shop 'Blue Stem' offers shoppers unique finds

Posted: Updated:
Shoppers in downtown Scottsbluff now have a new place to pick up unique home decor, gifts, jewelry and fun finds.

"What we're hoping to do is bring some unique items into people's homes here in Scottsbluff and Gering and the surrounding areas," said Amy Doll, co-owner of Blue Stem. 

Blue Stem officially opened its doors to the public Tuesday.

The new downtown business offers shoppers crafty and unique home decor in the forms of furniture, artwork, sculptures, and pottery.

"We have a lot of comments from people that have stopped in saying that 'it doesn't look like Scottsbluff," Doll said. "So we have a lot of different kinds of things. We like to say 'unique finds.' A lot of different stuff for your home, we're going to have a jewelry line pretty soon."

In addition to "fun, casual gifts and home items" Doll says Blue Stem also carries a unique line of paint.

Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint is "amazing" Doll says. "You can use it on any surface with little to no prep work, its been so fun!"

Doll says the user-friendly aspect of the paint will make it appeal to a wide variety of people. 

"I'm not an artist, but I've just had so much fun being able to experiment with the paint... and it makes me look kind of like I'm an artist, so that's an awesome thing!"

Doll says there are plans in the future to hold training workshops to get users familiar with the techniques of using a European-line paint.

"Its a little bit different than your normal hardware paint, so we're going to have classes to educate people on how to use it and how to get the most of the product," Doll said.

Blue Stem is located at 1818 Broadway, and is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
