Baby, You've Changed!

Written by: Mary Rosemeyer on Saturday, March 04, 2017

"Is this the same store?"

"Are you new?"

"Is it under new ownership?"


These are things we have heard quite a bit lately!


The answer is yes, same store, same owners since we opened in 2010, and yes things ARE different and we are very excited about that!


You may have noticed some changes at Eclectic in the past year.

We’ve heard a lot of comments on how the store looks different, and its true.


We’ve been busy making adjustments and changes. After all, we have been here almost 7 years now (!!!!!!!), change is inevitable and always a good thing in our eyes.



The goal of Eclectic was never to be static and offer the same merchandise over and over. What fun is that? We are constantly changing and inspired by different looks, colors, hobbies, etc. and the store is a continued reflection of that.

In the back, we’ve added a lovely barn wood desk that serves as home base for a client meeting area, work space and general hang out area- multipurpose at its finest!

But, where you may have noticed the biggest change is in product selection.


What we carry is not only a reflection of our own vision for the store but what you, our customers and clients, are asking for and more importantly, purchasing.

As much as we felt there was a lack of unique, quality furniture in the area, it was not selling and it didn’t make sense to keep it around "just because". A bit of a painful decision, but a necessary one.


Home accessories and lifestyle gifts are still our primary focus, but keep in mind that just because we don’t have furniture or specific accessories in the store doesn’t mean that we cannot order it for you!

We are now expanding as an outpost for men's products- grooming supplies, beard oil, shaving brushes, pomade, cologne... lots of products that have been tried and tested on friends with raving reviews.


We've also sourced merchandise from small, independent, American vendors that can't be found elsewhere. As a small business, its important for us to align with other small businesses.


Our new POS system now allows us to accept AMEX! Another perk is that it will cut down on paper waste- all receipts are now digital!


Can’t make it in?

You can shop from our most popular items online and even schedule a pick-up time (or select shipping)... even have it wrapped in our signature and exclusive wrapping options!!


So yes, we HAVE changed and we think that these changes are a great thing; bringing more options and convenience to you, our awesome and loyal customers. Thank you for standing by us and proving that the American Dream is still alive and well.
