Neighbors in #thenoke: Fearless Cook

Laura Wilson has been treating Northeast Indiana and far, far beyond to her gourmet delights for decades. The Le Cordon Bleu trained chef is talented, kind, driven and generous, and her presence in Roanoke is oh so valued. 

With La Dolce Vita, Wilson has been offering cooking classes, European food tours and Wednesday lunches to die for, in addition to a curated selection of cooking implements and entertaining staples. 

But her latest venture is Fearless Cook, located just a hop and a skip from La Dolce Vita. This new boutique with a mission stocks the greatest kitchen tools like whisks, spoons, spatulas, bar equipment, knives, linens, aprons and locally made wooden bowls, cutting boards and cheese boards. You'll also find a well-edited selection of coffees and teas and various accoutrement for flawless brewing.

Says Wilson, "Together we are going to be fearless in the kitchen. All cooking takes is a good palate and no fear. No fear of failing, burning, pots overflowing, or scalding. Just get in there and cook for your family and friends. If you make a mess, you will learn from it, so chalk that up to a good thing! We have all the tools you need to make and bake with ingredients you can actually pronounce giving you the courage to feed your friends and family with delicious creations and love!"

We adore Chef Laura Wilson, La Dolce Vita and Fearless Cook. Click below to learn more about all of Wilson's gourmet offerings in #thenoke!

Makers Market 2017

We love to fill our lawn in #thenoke with fun activities and local vendors, which is why we host Makers Market days in front of our barn each Autumn. This year, we're blowing it out with an amazing selection of local crafters and artisans on October 7th, from 11a - 3p.

Take a peek at the makers joining us this year:

From top to bottom, left to right: Gilly Flower, Supernovaas, G2G Jewelry, Bohemia Art and Design, Knotoday, Bored Otter Farm,  K1ND Goods, Old Fort Tee Company, Frebella and InJoy Designs. 

Come to charming Roanoke and shop these talented, local, indie artisans. Shop small, support local. 

Chilewich, Why We Obsess

Used by some of the finest restaurants in the world, Chilewich is an obsession-worthy brand and here's why:

Chilewich offers fashionable placemats and runners in every texture, size, weave and color under the sun, so you'll have no problem finding a style to perfectly complement your decor. While we're fans of neutrals (shocking, we know), the saturated spectrum of colors is dizzying and we want. them. all.

Chilewich placemats and runners are so thin, place settings and stemware sit evenly on the surface so they make setting a beautiful table an absolute dream. Let's take a moment of silence to mourn the loss of previously shattered glasses and goblets...

Chilewich's floor mats are also low-profile, so your door will never catch on the pile, and they won't cause furniture and lighting to tip or teeter.

Perhaps the best part, all Chilewich placemats, runners and floor mats can be easily rinsed or hosed off, rather than laundered, making these pieces a practical, durable and good looking home textile option. 

You simply must come in to see and feel these gems for yourself. Come obsess with us... 

Barn Sale 2017

We don't go on sale often but when we do, we go BIG. This year, our barn will be loaded up with home decor, gifts, furniture, architectural details, jewelry, clothing and so! much! more!

While we pull lots of fab merch into our barn in the few hours before the sale begins, get a eensy-teensy sneak peek below at a sliver of what you'll find inside during the event:

Remember, the early bird gets all the best stuff, so grab your friends and a coffee to-go and be the first to shop our beloved barn!

Come shop our Barn Sale on September 9th from 10a - 5p. With discounts up to 50% off, you won't want to miss out!

Take note: The Roanoke Fall Festival will be in full swing on the 9th so make a day of it and enjoy all that downtown Roanoke has to offer! Get more details here.

Prepping for Fall

It's always fun to get organized for Autumn. We love sweater weather and the return of our favorite denim pieces, paired with all the fun Fall festivities that fill our calendars like the famous Johnny Appleseed Festival and our legendary Barn Sale (stay tuned for info on that can't-miss event). Here's how we're starting the transition from Summer to Fall...

Take the trickiness out of transitional dressing and refresh your closet with easy layers, paired with upgraded denim staples.

Treat yourself to a new "Back to School" supply, such as a new take everywhere S'well bottle, the most chic tech accessories on the planet or a stylish new agenda. 

Come shop our latest and greatest and get ready for the season ahead!

Back To School

School days are just around the corner... But don't fret, because the end of Summer means the beginning of something new, something exciting. We've stocked our stores with the things you really want to buy for the year ahead.

2018

We start with the backpack. It must be durable, indeed, but it must be stylish, since it will be hugging the body for the next 9 months (and beyond). Bonus points if your chosen backpack also helps to provide education for children in developing nations.

Who says notebooks and pencils can't be downright adorable? We believe the things you use the most should be as attractive as possible. Ditch that jaundiced No. 2 pencil and grab some with pizzazz!

Even if school days are behind you, there's something in the air as the start of the Fall semester arrives. Treat yourself to a new notebook or journal and a charming bouquet of newly sharpened pencils (You've Got Mail, anyone?). Buy yourself that new book your well-read friend has been telling you about (better yet, borrow it). Whatever it may be, snap up something useful yet nice for yourself as you head straight into Autumn.

We know the #BTS shopping lists are long, but after you grab the glue and whatnot, come see us at The Trove (or sister store, The FIND) for the more exciting supplies (and extras) on your list!

In the Bag

A great handbag can make all the difference when it comes to putting together a look. From clutches to totes to the next must-have cross body, we have so many current faves.

Our current selection of leather bags includes sleek styles, metallic flashes and small touches of colorful textures.

Our casual totes are perfect for Summer days, full of pool runs, trips to the market and lunches with your bestie.

Come find your next must-have bag in #thenoke!
