An Elegant Start to 2017!

We believe there's just nothing like writing with a beautiful ink pen on fine papers. What's more, resolutions, goals, dreams, whatever you want to call them, have more potential to stick if you put them down on paper. Kick off 2017 with a stylish new journal, notebook or calendar.

Come shop our collection of fine papers, beautiful, handmade pens and stylish desk calendars. Start 2017 as you mean to go on, with glamour!

Frosted window panes
Candles gleaming inside
Painted candy canes on the tree...

Come feather your holiday nest with lovely accents from The Trove. 

Sweet Child of Mine

Is there anything more delightful than shopping for tiny humans? Cushy fabrics, soft hues, adorable critters and a good dose of sparkle makes our job of sourcing such goodies a pure joy! We love to stock the shop with pieces that inspire magic and whimsy for baby and child...and adults, too. 

We know registries from big box stores are vital for new parents and kiddos (diaper pails, cribs and breast pumps, oh my!) but the extra, unique gifts and keepsakes from smaller, indie artisans and boutiques just can't be beat on cuteness. 

Come shop the most enchanting clothing, gifts, toys and accessories in all the land! 

The Autumn Home

We know you don't switch around the entire decor of your house every season (though, wouldn't that be fun?). What we do know is that by switching up a few choice pieces, you can make a seasonal transition with style and ease. A few of our favorite Fall staples...

With a throw here, a pine scented decorative pillow there, along with the most gorgeous rustic candles we've encountered yet, making your home feel cozy, chic and warm for the crisp season ahead is a snap. 

Come shop our gorgeous selection of Autumn home decor and accents!

Chin Chin

We Trovesters appreciate a great drink at the end of the day (or lunch, if conditions are favorable). Therefore, you'll always find cool and chic barware in store. 

While gathering images for this blog post, we started thinking about our treasured and oft used toasts, lovingly gathered during our many travels and friendly fêtes. Pour yourself a glass and cheers with us, won't you?

I say “Cheers, Big Ears” for nearly every clink of a wine glass. My Kiwi sister in law says it’s a New Zealand thing, so I adopted it to make myself feel more international.
— Trovester Leslie
In my family, we always say ‘Salud, Dinero y Amor’, which translates to Health, Money & Love in Spanish.

Sometimes, just to switch things up a bit, I go with Áspro Páto, which is Greek for ‘Bottoms Up!’
— Trovester Melani
We always use a quote from the classic film, All About Eve:

”Fasten your seat belts, it’s going to be a bumpy night!”
— Trovester Mark
We learned in Belgium to say ‘Prost!’ and that when you raise a glass, you must make eye contact with your fellow revelers, to avoid bad sex. Is that TMI for the blog?
— Trovester Kate

Salut! Chin chin! Sláinte! 

No matter what your favorite toast is, freshen up your bar game at home and do it with style!

Freshen Up for Spring/Summer

We have some gorgeous home goods for Spring/Summer 2016. From wall decor to versatile Turkish towels (read this post for their many virtues) and the chicest coasters around, come shop The Trove (and starting June 1st, our sister store The FIND) for the pieces that will freshen and update all the rooms of your home. We can also help you in the garden, even if you happen to have a black thumb...

Freshen up for Spring and Summer at The Trove!

Naughty Needlepoint

We Trovesters totally appreciate a well placed four letter word. That's why when Julie Toles of Hedgehog Press suggested a Naughty Needlepoint workshop, we responded with an emphatic, HELL YES!

Julie brought all the necessary supplies with tons of options but when it came time to choose which message to stitch, there was a clear favorite! 

Only one of the attendees had ever attempted needlepoint prior to this workshop so we were doubly impressed with how well each of these turned out. What's more, everyone said this was a craft they would keep up with at home. Yay!

We want to give a big shout out to Julie for putting together a fun, crafter-noon in our beautiful barn, complete with Framboise Lambic drinks and tasty macarons from Proper Pastry, one of our Roanoke neighbors.

We had such a f^*k!ng blast at our Naughty Needlepoint workshop, we're going to do it again this Spring!

To Market, To Market

We Trovesters go to great lengths to bring the freshest goodies to our corner of Northeast Indiana. We search high and low during  our personal travels and a few times a year, we assemble at the best wholesale markets to divide and conquer. We find not only fantastic pieces we just know  you'll love but also make new friends, strengthen our team bonds and consume more than our fair share of vino after long days on our feet. We love (almost) every single second. Take a peek at our latest expedition to the famed AmericasMart Atlanta. This massive wholesale market features an exhilarating yet exhausting seven million square feet. Yes, SEVEN MILLION! Our FitBit bands didn't know what hit 'em...

Trovesters REPRESENT! Just for the record, that's iced coffee in Melani's cup, not wine as you might have first suspected.

The labyrinth of hell...AKA Building 3 (of 4 total buildings). New tees, books, jewelry, linens and furniture found! 

Look for these stunning candle lanterns at The Trove, arriving soon!

Leslie, with one of our fab sales reps, placing a jewelry order.

Can't wait to add this new line to our jewelry department.

Placed a BIG order for these retro style Newgate clocks.

Love love love these cutie canvas totes.

We always have fun in the Ben's Garden booth.

Not so bad to be indoors on a dreary, foggy day.

These pretty throws and pillows have us dreaming of Spring!

Not everything's a winner. You won't be finding this one at The Trove...

And another item we won’t be bringing back.

Wine vs. Food --- there's a clear favorite.

New Bed Stu!

You're going to fall in love with new Barefoot Dreams for littles.

Kitchen islands, awesome tables and  accent pieces - Leslie was clearly having a blast at this booth.

It's imperative to practice restorative yoga poses throughout the day.

Whew! We're exhausted all over again.

Stay tuned for the impending arrivals of our many new finds!

The Art of Modern Print Publications

Print publications are folding left and right in this digital age (pun not intended however perfect). But while everyone and their mother now has a blog, there are talented photographers and writers creating gorgeous, more modern magazines. Driftless is one such example.

The brainchild of three passionate and talented women, this ad-free, indie publication highlights the food, art and culture of the Midwest. With expertly curated content, the full color issues are printed biannually and are chock full of stories, illustrations, swoon-worthy photography and design, interviews, recipes and comprehensive guides for adventurers. 

We are terribly excited to be the first stockist in Northeast Indiana to carry Driftless. We love their passion for stunning imagery, modern, minimalistic aesthetic and commitment to the art of storytelling. We're inspired by their love of this slice of America and we're proud to support Driftless as they show the world that where we call home is not just flyover country.

We just know you'll love to explore the beautiful Midwest through their lens. Pick up the latest copy of Driftless at The Trove. Want to learn more about Driftless? Click HERE
