    PAW PAW - Looking for a new business home and the right opportunity, Melinda Figgins found all of that  when she recently purchased the former Paw Paw Village Playhouse, where she has opened All Stirred Up!
   Nine years ago, Figgins purchased Tea Time, a kiosk, in the  Crossroads Mall, Portage. “Most of what we sold there was smoothies,” said Figgins. Soon after, she rebranded the business to All Stirred Up! and operated it from 2009 to 2013.
Faced with increased rental costs from the mall, Figgins closed that business and began a search for a new business home.
“I was looking for the right opportunity and found this particular space, right here. The theater was a bonus,” said Figgins of the  former First Baptist Church building, built in 1857.
   All Stirred Up! features a variety of baked goods, chocolates, and candies, with  much of it made in-house.  The business sells a selection of make-your-own gift boxes for her varied inventory.
   In addition, All Stirred Up!  serves coffee, beer, wine and  liquor.
   Figgins said the business venture serves as one concept for  the retail space and the Paw Paw Playhouse theater upstairs. “The two spaces work together. One supports the other,” said Figgins.
   A schedule of weekend shows has been booked for the theater, and Figgins said she is exploring the option of showing movies there, too. 
   A party room is also planned for the business, as well as  theater rental for private parties.
   “I’m very happy with the feed back in trying to get the word out about the new business,” said Figgins.
   Both businesses are on Facebook and on the web at: allstirredup.com.
