Andrea Broemmeling is Wonders of the World's new manager

Andrea Broemmeling has been named the new manager for Wonders of the World, the unique shop in the Flour Mill. She's been working at Wonders for the last 7 years. She'll manage the business and their 10 employees. Shop owner Pamela Barclay reports she and her staff have just returned from their biggest buying trip of the year and they have a lot of new, interesting merchandise to sell.

On November 3, 1992 owner Pamela Barclay opened Wonders of the World in 699 sq ft of space in the Flour Mill on the main floor. Wonders is a world import shop that has something for everyone, art, sculpture, fossils, crystals, minerals, toys, gemstones, beads. Prices range from 25 cents to 25 thousand dollars. Pamela's criteria for merchandise is that it has to be unique and different.

In 1996 Wonders had already outgrown their space and expanded into a neighboring store's spot, essentially having two stores. 1997, 'Annie' came to live at Wonders of the World. 'Annie', the actual skeleton of a 50,000 year old Russian cave bear, was named for Dolores Anne Fischer, the first manager of Wonders of the World, who is responsible for talking owner Pamela Barclay into buying the artifact from its owner, a Russian Paleontologist.

The entire main floor of the Flour Mill was remodeled in 2001 and Wonders' two shops became one. In 2004, Beads were given their very own shop across the hall from the main shop and Wonders was back to being two shops again.
