Creative family sells their wares at Oddz2Endz Gift Shop in West Fargo
The store is open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesdays. They also sell their merchandise via Facebook Marketplace and Shopify.
WEST FARGO — Belladonna Marth loves all things miniature.
The young entrepreneur from West Fargo spends her days making miniature food items out of resin, some of which she turns into magnets, keychains or jewelry.
"These are my favorite," she said recently, pointing to tiny pizzas she was in the process of making into magnets.
Minutes later, it's the tacos. Next, the tiny bowls of spaghetti are her favorite.
"I love tiny things. I could sit and make them for hours," Marth said.
Marth and several creative family members sell their wares at Oddz2Endz Gift Shop , 2111 Main Avenue East, Unit 2.
Her mother, Patricia Moser, makes jewelry, clothing and other crafts, but she is quick to say the real stars at Oddz2Endz are Marth, daughter Arianne Clark and her husband, David Moser.
Arianne and David are both painters. Arianne primarily paints abstracts, while David specializes in Bob Ross-inspired nature paintings.
"He's a super big Bob Ross fan," Moser said. "He has Bob Ross on (the television) 24/7."
'Made with love'
The family opened their storefront in West Fargo in November of 2020. Prior to that, they mainly sold their merchandise through Facebook and Shopify, which they continue to do today.
Right now, the store is only open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesdays as Moser cares for her 88-year-old mother. They are also open by appointment.
"A lot of people like that. They can get a couple of girlfriends together and come in and shop while it's quiet," Moser said.
Oddz2Endz recently got a boost in business from West Fargo's Love Your Local gift card program . This spring, the city of West Fargo mailed $25 gift cards to residents in an effort to provide some monetary relief from the pandemic as well as to incentivize spending at local West Fargo businesses.
Moser said their gift baskets were especially popular.
When asked what she wanted readers to know about Oddz2Endz, Moser said, "It's all made with love. It really is. We will go to the ends of the earth and do what we can to try and make something people want."
"Anything they see here that they like, we customize anything. I had a customer come in recently and ask for a galaxy ashtray. I didn't think I could, but I had to try it. Now I love doing them. Now we have so many galaxy-themed things. We do almost anything," she said.
For Marth, that includes extending her delicate skills to painting pretty much anything small. Customers with small ceramics or statues with scratches or are in need of a facelift are encouraged to bring them in.
But her true love remains making all things miniature. She plans to branch out into doll accessories.
"It's mostly food right now, but I'm working on being able to make Barbie Doll bunny-ear slippers and other things like jars of mayonnaise," Marth said.
"We're getting new ideas every day," Moser added.
