ALBION – A Lyndonville couple has opened a business in downtown Albion that includes an array of new products at a deep discount.

Kelly Fischer-Godlewski and her husband Mike Godlewski have been running Necka’s Treasures from their home for about a year. They decided to make it their full-time focus and move into a storefront.

They receive pallets of products from Target, Home Depot, Cosway, Amazon and Bed, Bath and Beyond. The merchandise are overstocks or “shelf pulls,” typically when the stores replace the items with newer seasonal products.

“The goal is to keep the prices low for the community,” said Fischer-Godlewski.

The pallets have an array of merchandize. Recent shipments have ranged from clothing, exercise equipment, computer products, bed sets, a heat press and drying oven. They even have karaoke and cotton candy machines.

The Godlewskis tried the overstock sales about a year ago selling items from Home Depot as a yard sale from their home. The products at 50 percent or more off their retail value were popular.

Mr. Godlewski checks the electronics and other items to make sure they are working. For many years he has owned and operated Rescom GC Inc., doing home construction and remodeling.

Necka’s Treasures is named for their 3-year-old daughter, Anezka. The store also has a mascot, a baby pig named Crowley.

Necka’s is looking to add artwork and crystals, and will have free coffee and tea for customers. There will also be a monthly raffle for customers who spend at least $5 who are then eligible to win a package of merchandise.

They are planning to be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
