Down in Old Port near the Friendly Dolphin, there is a cool store call SEGUNDA “THIS AND THAT”. The shop carries new and used items including glassware, kitchen items, linens, furniture, holiday decorations and just about anything you can think of for your home or condo. The store turns over its inventory once every 6 weeks so you can always be assured to find new and interesting items in the store.

I recently caught up with Donna Peckenpaugh, the owner and shopkeeper of Segunda “This and That”. Donna has been a Rocky Point homeowner for the last 6 years and about a year ago decided to make Rocky Point her full time home. So, with the help of her children, she downsized to full time beach living in Rocky Point. Donna has been an interior designer for over thirty years and has extensive experience in design for large custom homes throughout Nevada, California, Colorado, Texas and of course awesome Arizona. Many of her clients just had the idea of how they wanted to transform their space and Donna put the plans to action and turned their living area into their dream come true. When Donna first came to Rocky Point, she did not have any visions for her shop…rather it was her time to relax and unwind. “I spent a year doing nothing but walking the beach and reading and then I realized that I was never meant to be idle for so much of my time and decided that I would open a little second hand boutique”. And did it take off!

Donna does a lot of consignment work as well. She will do a 50/50 split if the items are delivered to her and a 60/40 if she needs to pick up the items. What a great way to clean up your space and make some cash at the same time! Donna loves meeting all of the visitors and locals alike that come into her store. There’s always new faces and stories that she gets to see and hear daily. Down the road, Donna envisions herself including interior design for the new homes when new home and condo sales pick back up. So, gather up your unwanted items and head on down to Donna’s store, SEGUNDA “THIS & THAT” in Old Port. You never know what treasures you will find!
Have a wonderful and safe July and be sure to make plenty of relaxation time for our beaches here in Rocky Point. As a wickedly wise woman told me once, Stop reaching for your goals and GO GET THEM, it is your life, live it to its fullest!!! And please remember, on your way to achieving your goals, be sure to take a moment and reach out to a person in need especially those people right in our beautiful, ROCKY POINT!!! SALUTE!!!
