Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r By Andra CefalorThe Payson Santaquin Area Chamber of Commerce congratulates November’s Business of the month White Feather Rocks which is located in Santaquin. White Feather Rocks started business in Jim and Loretta’s garage 4 years ago. First, it was mostly lapidary supplies, rock polishers and raw rock, but soon expanded to include retail jewelry, including items that they made, and Native American jewelry. The rapid growth of the Santaquin business has allowed Jim to retire from his full-time job at the school district, and to put in even longer hours at the store, doing custom silver work and repairs.

From the garage, they moved to a storefront on Main street, and then two years ago were able to purchase a larger, historic building a few doors down, at 33 West Main. With the added space, they included a “spa” room, that a local massage therapist uses for healing massages.

The shop has a metaphysical section with includes chakra healing stones, crystals, incenses, sage and smudging supplies. One of the big sellers is Himalayan Salt lamps and bowls.

They have a wide variety of gold panning equipment, and books on treasure hunting, and Utah legends. They are the only retail supplier for Gold Claw gold pans in Utah.

The children’s section has tumbled stones, science kits and books on rocks and dinosaurs. Every kid leaves with a free rock!

There is a large assortment of artwork available, including paintings, gourd bowls, woven pine needle baskets, and Native American vases. Several local artists contribute their work on consignment.

Jim and Loretta love working with community groups, and they host tours for private groups, Scouts and all the Santaquin 2nd grade classes. The kids enjoy learning about different types of rock and their uses, and love handling and learning about the dinosaur fossils native to Utah.

Recently, they have added custom wedding rings and diamonds. There is a large variety of gift items, including geodes, books, local honey, and Temple Stone Jewelry. They also offer classes including stone polishing and jewelry wire-wrapping.

It is the only shop with its variety in Utah county. Where else can you get everything from beaver traps to bath bombs? If they don’t have it, they will find it for you!

Congratulations White Feather Rocks!
