CULLMAN - Local home and garden décor shop, The Blue Eyed Rabbit, celebrated its opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Wednesday morning. Owner Connie Sandlin said she is excited to fill a need she has seen develop in Cullman over the years. The Blue Eyed Rabbit offers a wide range of crafts, plants and other items, a unique and varied selection.

Sandlin’s new store provides several services as well; Sandlin said it’s important to her that people are able to use those services to personalize their homes.

“I do home décor, interior design and decorating and I also do offer some landscaping services,” said Sandlin. “Home accessories, window treatments, in-home consultations and that kind of thing. I just try to collect things from different places and pull together different things. I like people’s homes to reflect them and not me, whether they’ve had things from their travels that they can bring in that’s personal to them. So, it’s not just stuff, it tells their story, not my story.”

Sandlin said she is excited to help fill a void she and others in the community have noticed for some time.

“I feel like Cullman doesn’t have anything like this, and for years I’ve had to go to other places and search for items, so I felt like there was a need that was missing here that I could fill with my talent,” Sandlin said. “So, that’s basically my thing, but I wanted to make sure to keep it affordable and one-of-a-kind.”

Before the ribbon cutting, Cullman Area Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Leah Bolin took a moment to talk about how excited she is to welcome to The Blue Eyed Rabbit to the community.

“This is one of my fun discoveries today because I’ve had this on my agenda and my schedule, but I wasn’t really sure what ribbon cutting we were doing. Then I walked in and I realized this is my kind of store; I love it,” Bolin said. “Opening businesses is one of our favorite things to do, but our most favorite thing to do is telling other people about these businesses and help make you (Sandlin) successful. We’re really lucky to have you in our community and have your business in our community and we’re really excited that you’re here.”

The Blue Eyed Rabbit is located at 1702 Cherokee Ave. SW and is open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
