If you are enthusiastic about shopping and picking up items you do not find every day, this new shop will have you feeling right at home.

The Attic Addict is a new store in Rapid City selling high end items such as designer clothes for men and women, designer handbags, and shoes. The store also sells gift items, handmade items, and slightly used items that are brought in on consignment all for a steal of a deal.

Shop owner Cathy Switzer says with her shop recently being in Black Hawk, she is excited to serve even more people in Rapid City.

"I want them to feel relaxed while they're shopping and able to enjoy coming here and getting good fair prices on all the items we have here and we get new things weekly. The store is very unique and we always have specialty items so it's really worth your time to come," Switzer said.

Attic Addict is open Wednesday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday through Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Hours may change during the winter.

One family in Rapid City is a pioneer for business among the Native community reflecting a legacy that reaches far back in its history.

HeSapa Enterprises first began as HeSapa Laser Solutions in 2015 initially starting out with the purchase of single laser engraving machine.

After taking an offer to buy out another Indian business for their screen printing equipment, the Swan family then developed funding to get knitting, embroidery, and sand carving machines prompting them to change their business name.

They create all kinds of items and apparel including beanies and scarves with graphics designed in-house. Brothers Zane and Stephen Swan are the graphic designer and CFO of the business and say their entrepreneurial spirit comes from their grandparents who own Black Hills Jeweler Supply and Creative Art and Frame downtown.

"From a young age, we kind of realized what it was to be an entrepreneur seeing the daily struggles that they would go through and also what they put into their business as the years went by," Zane said.

"We kind of already knew that we were going to do this before we even realized we had the chance to do it," Stephen continued.
