Meet the Owners of Inspirit Crystals
We are Barry and Rosie Goldstein, a father/daughter team from Northampton. We had always loved this very special store since it opened in 2005. We loved the experience of being there: the music, the incense, and especially the mesmerizing crystals. In 2012, when we heard that owners Emily and Bucky Sparkle were looking for new owners, we allowed ourselves to fantasize about our family taking on this exciting project. When we met with the Sparkles, we immediately felt a deep connection with both of them, and with their vision; and we knew it was meant to be. Slowly, we dared to have our own vision as well—a vision of growth, of bringing even more gifts with special meaning into the store, of touching even more lives with the magic of this place. It is gratifying for us to see our vision becoming reality!
Barry is an old hippy who retired a few years back from a long career as a psychologist in the Holyoke Public Schools. He has also managed real estate on the side for many years. He and his wife Sue have always had an interest in Spanish language and culture. After several visits to Latin America, they took a year off and lived in Ecuador for a year in the 70s. Their son Robin was born shortly after they returned to the states; and Barry and Sue’s close relationship with the traditions of South America influenced their decision nine years later to adopt a baby girl from Chile: Rosie.
Rosie loves traveling and has borrowed spiritual ideas from many countries over the years. She feels strongly connected to Chile, where she spent time as a teenager. A side trip to Easter Island back then left an especially lasting impression on her. In the past Rosie worked both in retail and in human services, and she feels that owning Inspirit Crystals combines these two areas. She has a passion for animals, and from time to time you might see her little hairless terrier, Juliet, in the store with her, sitting on the counter greeting folks who come in.
