For an egg-stravagant Easter, try the Easter Egg Shop

Posted: Updated:

Easter is just around the corner and if you're looking for something egg-ceptional we may have just the thing for you.

The Easter Egg Shop is open for business in Tyler, sharing their egg-celent product.

Some may say Carolyn Rozell is a little egg-centric, but there's no doubt she has talent. She can look at a character and reproduce it egg-xactly using a little paint and paper or cloth, and one other thing: an egg.

"I love doing it. I just grew up with it. It's really fun and I get excited when I start a new character," Carolyn said.

Her mother started the egg-stravaganza in 1930, and eventually Carolyn took over adding new characters every year.

"Like the sock monkey, I was trying to figure out the fabric for his hat," she revealed.

Some find the blown eggs so egg-citing they drive in from hundreds of miles away.

"It's an annual trip. I've been doing this for over 25 years, and I seem to gather friends that want to take the ride with me; different friends each year," Cecile Brownlee admitted.

Carolyn is working on 95 dozen egg-speriments this year, some new, some tried and true.

"So I guess when you peel an egg, it looks like that," I observed holding a skull egg.

That egg is definitely eggs-o-skeletal.

"You definitely want to keep this up because you don't want to become egg-stinked," I observed holding up an eggosauruas, one of Carolyn's creations.

No fear of that with egg-zuberant customer after customer buying a box full of col-egg-table eggs, before they make their egg-xit.

Carolyn Rozell has a brother and a sister who have designed their own eggs in the past, but right now Carolyn is the only one in the family currently designing the eggs.

The Easter Egg Shop is located at 12206 Highway 31 East in Tyler.
