You don’t say

“I just want to know if you can get a zebra-striped hairdo there.”

– A tweet from Delano resident Karen Cravens (@KarenInDelano) about the salon coming to Palim’s, an animal print furniture and accessory shop in Delano

Palim’s in Delano to soon house a salon

WICHITA — The almost 1-year-old Palim’s animal print furniture and accessory shop in Delano is going to soon have an unusual addition: A salon.

Owner Patty Womack’s daughter, Jenny Burns, is going to open the business within the shop at 919 W. Second St., which is across from Ty’s Diner.

“I gave up my storage room,” Womack says.

Burns has been doing hair for almost 20 years but recently took some time off. Now that she’s decided to reopen, Womack says her daughter decided she didn’t want to do a booth rental any longer.

Womack isn’t sure when the salon will open.

“There’s so many requirements you’ve got to meet before they can come in and inspect it.”

Womack doesn’t mind sacrificing her storage space because customers coming in for hair styling also will see what she has for sale.

“They’re going to have to come through the store,” Womack says. “That’s another plus.”

My RV Time Share debuts with one RV

WICHITA — There are fractional ownerships for jets and time-shares for condos, so Nasir and Chanda Jesri wondered if something similar might work for recreational vehicles.

They’ve started My RV Time Share to see.

“It’s the best of both worlds,” says Nasir Jesri, who is a co-owner of Wichita’s Absolute Natural Stones.

The Jesris have rented RVs in the past.

“The kids love it,” Nasir Jesri says.

His pocketbook doesn’t quite as much.

“RV rentals can get pretty costly,” Jesri says of everything associated with the rentals.

He says buying isn’t an option for families with limited vacation time.

“The thing is, we can’t afford to really pay for an RV and use it a few weeks a year,” Jesri says.

That’s why the Jesris researched a fractional or time-share model for RVs. They didn’t find much nationally, so they decided to start their own operation with one 30-foot, 2014 model that can seat nine.

“Our model is totally different,” Jesri says.
