She wants to help return moms to their home and children by providing a new opportunity.

When Cecily first visited Connell back in 2010 she thought it was out in the middle of nowhere and didn’t understand how people could live so far from the big city (she is orginally from Pasco). Fast forward 8 years – after she married a local farmboy Doug Pioveson – they now live outside of Connell and raise their 3 kids. She loves this town, community and the friendships she has made and can’t imagine raising her family anywhere else.  Check out FarmWife Pretty on Facebook, Instagram, or her website  To schedule a home party or a free makeover contact Cecily Pioveson at 509-4302-6149 or email

brick store

The Old Brick Store

Known to have “a little bit of everything”, The Old Brick Store in downtown Connell is family owned and operated by Jamie Kuehny along with her parents Dale & Cari Kuehny. All 8 family members, including her 5 siblings, help out in some way at the store. The Kuehny family took over operation of what was formerly known as “The Old Hardware Store” from John & Carol Lindner on March 1, 2016. Since the building was built in 1896, it has been many different businesses including a blacksmith shop, a bottle club during the prohibition era, a farm equipment dealership, and a hardware store that included selling fine furniture, appliances, home wares, and toys just to name a few. It even had a bowling alley in the basement at one time.

Jamie had always been interested in owning a store that incorporated her family, community, history, and the art of recycling. She was able to accomplish all that by establishing The Old Brick Store. The store offers antiques, collectibles, hardware, home décor, heirlooms, furniture, tools, farm supplies, apparel, and so much more. A lot
of their merchandise is acquired through purchasing abandoned storage units and estate sales. New pieces are constantly being added and the items usually have a quick turnover rate. If you don’t visit the store often, chances are, you are missing some good buys. If you have pieces you would like to sell, stop by and visit with them. Jamie loves adding new items to the store, especially pieces that have history behind them.

When asked about the success of the business, Jamie replied “We so appreciate all our customers. Many have become like family to us.” When you’re looking for something unique or want to find something you didn’t know you needed or wanted until you saw it, stop by. The Old Brick Store is located at 203 N. Columbia Ave. in downtown Connell. Hours of operation are Tuesday through Saturdays 10am - 6pm, Sundays 11am - 4pm, closed on Mondays. Be sure to check out their website and follow them on Facebook.
