Carey Hargot and husband Travis recently purchased and renovated the old NAPA building located at 130 N. Central Ave. for the home of Red Daisy Girl Designs. Carey’s rustic/country/slightly hippy design style beautifies the old building both inside and outside. The interior is decorated with rustic materials, including weathered barn board and corrugated metal. A large custom-built bar fills part of the space, where customers can order beer products and other beverages. There is plenty of space for crafting and socializing inside and when the weather is sunny, the fun can be taken outside to the gorgeous side patio. A cement pad, set up with a tiki bar, umbrella tables and lush plants,fills the space between Red Daisy Girl and The Owen Vets’ Club.
