What if laundry wasn't a chore, but a little dose of self-care? The delightful, eco-friendly scent of our new line of Frey laundry products transports your senses with every wash and their revolutionary formula helps fabrics last longer!
Frey laundry care products will infuse your life with luscious fragrances using cleaner, more pure ingredients. Their fragrances are so much more than just a pleasant passing sensation. They wake up your imagination and can be a powerful reset button after a tough day.

Not only do Frey laundry care products offer scents unlike anything else you've ever experienced, they're also better for the world, created to minimize waste WITHOUT parabens, synthetic dyes, or being tested on animals. And for every purchase made, Frey plants a tree with their charity partner, Trees for the Future. 

FireGlow multi-function LED lights magically create the random movement, flicker, and ambient glow of a traditional burning flame. 

These LED lights also feature a non-flickering option, a dimmer, a hook for hanging, and can be recharged via a USB port...making them both safe AND hassle-free!

Seeing is believing...

Obviously our One Buck Wednesday events are on hold. However, we have planned the promotions anyway so that we are ready to go as soon as it's safe to reopen our stores!


Awww, Shucks!
These two couples had us blushing on their recent visit to our stores. Beth & Jim Kozlowski of Chesterton and Frank & Juanita Nash of Valparaiso (pictured above, L-R) gushed about the beautiful decor they've purchased from us over the years. They even went on to say that they're our biggest fans! But here's the honest-to-goodness's good folks like them that WE gush about and whom WE are fans of! And we blush from being grateful...grateful because, although we receive many wonderful words of praise, we know it's folks like Jim, Beth, Frank, & Juanita who gave us the inspiration to evolve into the shopping destination we are today and the motivation  to share many, many tomorrows with you.
