A not so Shabby gift


Marshfield’s most popular four-way intersection is getting a new look. Located at E. Jackson St. and S. Crittenden St.the beginning of a hand-painted mural by local artist Samantha Cox is in progress. The architect behind the project is none other than Marshfield’s own Shabby Sheep Boutique’s owner Lorissa Ellis. The project was teased on Shabby Sheep’s Facebook page on June 1. 

As drivers go through the intersection, it is hard to miss the mural that’s being created. Ellis does not want to spoil the surprise, but is excited about its completion and meaning for the community.

“It will be something fun. Something different for the town. We wanted to bring some life back into the town…There is definitely sentimental value with our family, some things to support our law enforcement and the town,” explained Ellis. “It’s important to me as a business owner to give life back to the square. To give it that small town feel. I’m just excited about it.” 

The Marshfield Mail and the rest of Marshfield will wait to see what comes from the wool of this sheep.
