OCONTO – The opening of The Shop on Main fulfilled two longtime goals of Lynne Hearley.

“I always wanted to sell my own art, and I always wanted to have my own coffee shop,” she said.

After a more than a year of hard work, those dreams came to fruition when the business opened on July 1.

“Everybody calls it ‘The Shop,’” Hearley explained.

She has sold her works under the auspices of Iron Maiden Metal Art for a decade, and moved into the building at 821 Main St. four years ago.

Hearley used the space as a studio and the site of showings twice a year. With her shows last year canceled because of the pandemic, Hearley decided it was time to combine her two dreams.
