How would you describe the Trove and the Find?

Both are “lifestyle” stores; we carry clothing, home decor, gifts, stationery. The broad definition is really fun; we aren’t constrained and we buy what we love and want to own ourselves. Since each store has three or four unique visions, the styles have a range. We love to carry Midwest brands, but gravitate to anything that is unique and well­ made.

Many of my female friends have been talking about the treasures they have been finding at this adorable store but I loved that I found shopping options for myself and other guys, too. In fact, I walked away with a new book on how to make a better cocktail for my friends. I plan to put it to good use.

I would jump at the opportunity to sell clothes! I would love that!” remarked one woman to another, engaging in cocktail chatter at a party thrown by the company where both their husbands work.

Little did Roya Kelly know that Libby Ash took special note of that comment and wouldn’t soon forget it.
