New shop opens in Wilton


A new store, Wild Woman Wannabees, has opened in Wilton.

By KAREN PARKER | County Line Editor

Donna Bauernfeind of Wilton has opened Wild Woman Wannabees on 420 Main St. in Wilton, in the building that once housed Wild Woman’s.

Wild Woman’s, which moved to Sparta earlier this year, featured vintage clothing, and owner Pat Barnes will continue to offer some inventory in Bauernfeind’s shop.

But the offerings have been expanded: Antiques, collectibles, jewelry, local art and much more will comprise the store’s retail section. From the store, Bauernfeind will also operate her Smile on a Stick business. Her late husband, Mike, created the novelty item, which consists of a cardboard smile affixed to a wooden stick.

Several years ago, the two ran a Wilton shop called Almosta Store, but they closed it after selling the building in which it was housed and moving to rural Wilton.
