Over the years Malecha has given many countless hours to the community and its welfare. She has been involved in many civic projects, managed 4 other businesses, was president of the historical society, worked on steering committees to enhance the city, was mayor for 3 terms, and city council for 1. In addition Malecha was a Sibley Township Clerk and oversaw the renovation of Jack Pine Center.
When another business opportunity presented itself on the same grocery store property she and her husband once owned, Malecha turned her energies to start a new business. By combining her wealth of business experiences, knowledge of antiques, a sharp eye for emerging trends of repurposed and reimagined furniture, Timeless Appeal was established May 2018 as a consignment shop. Open the door to artfully displayed work of locally made products, mostly from Central Minnesota, ranging from St. Cloud to Pine River.
What a wonderful concept creating a store that provides a place where local artists and residents can display and sell their work.
Vendors trust Malecha to display their work in such a way as to attract visitors.
Malecha works on commission and is open 7 days a week. She has been in business 3 months and marketing her store has primarily been through Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/Timeless-Appeal-202548013695093/, word of mouth and references. Her family and friends have been supportive throughout the renovation process by adding their talents and ideas.
There is much to admire about Malecha. With her previous successful business experiences, a strong work ethic and commitment to the Pequot community, she has created a vision that has timeless appeal for all.
