CARLY J. KLASSEN DDS not last because it is not made of solid wood. Rich is relatively new to Weatherford, having moved here from Graham in 2014. She and her late husband Butch bought the old Hodges Feed building at 506 North Main St. After eight months of remodeling, Just Peachy opened its doors in February 2015, and, according to Rich, “has a good following for a business only a year and a half old.” The Riches picked Weatherford for their start-up because of its location and demographics. “I didn’t feel confident to do this in Graham,” she said. “There’s a lot of traffic through Weatherford and you get people from all over. So I thought we would do good.” The front showroom of the business displays numerous restored and repurposed pieces, but in the back section Rich maintains a supply of “raw” items customers are welcome to look over. Some ask her to restore a particular piece using their specs or color scheme, etc., while others buy an item to refinish themselves. Either way, it’s all good, because Just Peachy is something of a dream come true for Rich, an outlet for her artsy or creative side. “It has always been my dream to do this. It’s like my 50-year switchover kinda deal — do something new before you die!” she said with a laugh.
