157 NE 2nd Street will be home to Little WYLD, LLC, a new storefront conceived in 2021 by Amanda Perna and Skye Dyer (Co-Owners).

The store will sell carefully curated items for women and children, home decor, and gifts. Little WYLD was created with the idea in mind to sell ethically made, unique items from businesses that are local, and women and/or minority owned.

Funding assistance is requested for interior and exterior improvements including: replacing the front door and windows with hurricane impact glass; signage; replacing the awning; renovating the bathroom with fresh paint, lighting, and mirror fixture; construction of backroom permanent displays/fixtures; replacing the cracked gutter/pipe in the back of the building; painting the back exterior wall; modifying the space for COVID-19 safety precautions; and related design, permitting, and engineering fees. If approved, the Owners anticipate the improvements to be fully completed three months from initiation, which lands around the end of November 2021.

All estimated eligible expenses are listed in the attached Funding ...
