It’s been a dizzying five years (FIVE???) since we flung open the doors of The Trove and its lovely backyard barn. We forever adore Roanoke for many reasons, but particularly because it’s been such a wonderful place to express our creativity and commune with our neighbors and fellow business owners, all in a delightful, small town setting.
Roanoke may be small but it’s big on charm, growing and deepening with every business that decides to set up shop along and around Main Street. We couldn’t be happier to have spent these last five years as a small part of its magic, and we’re beyond thrilled with what the future holds… but that’s a story for a (near) future post, friends.
In the meantime, we’re looking back at some of our adventures and realizing just how far we’ve come. Stroll down memory lane with us, will ya?
We knew these beautiful buildings had good bones, and that they only needed a little freshening up. Okay, maybe a lot of freshening up, but the work was well worth it. We’ve hosted so many sales, pop ups and parties both in our barn and on the lawn.
A fresh coat of paint can really make a big difference, huh? Once LML Estate Management put their stamp on the grounds with the most gorgeous landscaping, our little compound felt like home.
Putting on the finishing touches, and remembering how fun it was to take a raw space and fill it with all our favorite things.
The full OG crew of Trovesters on our opening night, which was a smashing success and so much fun! We’ve scattered to the wind a bit, chasing additional dreams, but as we always say, “once a Trovester, always a Trovester!”
Our first purchase was made by the lovely Sherry Holifield. | Most of the OG crew at the Atlanta buying markets one season. When shopping + drinking wine is quite literally your job, it’s easy to feel hashtag blessed. But don’t get us wrong, owning and running a retail shop is not for the faint of heart!
Naturally, there are so many stories to share and future plans to dream up. Swing by #thenoke and say Happy 5th Birthday to The Trove!
