World of Gaia coming to Oroville

— World of Gaia owners Richard “Wes” and Cecilia Westphal have purchased a building on Main Street and are moving their business.

The store offers jewelry supplies, Cecilia Westphal said. An online component features tumbled stones and gift items.

She said the new location, 1402 Main St., is being remodeled. A February opening is planned.

The new site is larger than the old one at 1321 Main St., Suite A, Westphal said.

“We outgrew the other one,” she said.

Store hours haven’t been determined, though it will be online at

A second storefront, 1404 Main St., will be used for retail.

The Westphals purchased the building in December from Spence and Janice Higby of Oroville. Janice Higby said the building has been rented, but vacant, for the past two years.
