Sweet Nut-things, a gift shop that Angie Hall and Shelley Riggins opened in September at Siena Plaza at 37th and Rock, now has an arrangement with the Wichita Wingnuts to sell peanuts and other treats at their games.
“We are providing all their nuts,” Hall says. She and Riggins will also sell caramel popcorn and what Hall calls other “game friendly items.”
She says the deal came about because a Wingnuts employee who gets her hair cut at Sola Salon, which is also at Sienna, learned about Nut-things and suggested an arrangement.
Hall says being at the ballpark will be great advertising for the store, “especially hitting the west side and south side of Wichita.”
There’s an exhibition game Tuesday and Hall and Riggins have to stuff 700 bags of nuts to be ready.
“Yeah,” Hall says. “What are you doing this weekend?”
