Have I mentioned I’m loving this series?! We have fantastic local businesses, and today’s feature is no exception: Tip Toes! I had the pleasure of meeting owners Kirsten Kincaid Nykamp and Paul Nykamp. They were as warm and cheerful as the atmosphere is bright and inviting!
If you were an animal, what would you be?
Kirsten: “a big ol’ fluffy dog so I can take naps in the sunshine on a daily basis. Dogs are also happy to see everyone and get lots of hugs, so that would be pretty awesome as well!”
Paul: “hmmm. The possibilities. I would be a eagle, having the ability to fly and get places quickly and gracefully would be amazing all the while having an amazing view of the happenings around me.”
Morning person or night owl?
Kirsten: “Morning. I like to have a little quiet time first thing in the morning before everyone else gets up to get my head set for the day.”
Paul: “Definitely a night owl. Having the end of the day to unwind, catch up on things or to prep for next door is ideal. I can survive as a morning person, our two children have helped me to get moving in the mornings…”
What is one thing you wish people knew about your business?
“If you’ve never been in Tip Toes, then you’ve not been able to experience the wonderful team that we have. Everyone prides themselves in being there for the customer and helping the customer find just what they are looking for. Whether a gift or something for your little one, we try our best to find the perfect fit.”
Describe a memorable or favorite moment in your business.
“I think our favorite moments happen daily….when we hear kids having fun playing in the built in treehouse or pushing the kid sized shopping carts around. There’s nothing better than the sound of happy kids and knowing that we can add a little sunshine into their day is awesome.”
