GALION — Steven and Holly Rose are doing their part to help Galion.
“It is important to us to continue to see growth in Galion,” said Steven, who is a Galion native.
Steven and Holly took over the space that was home to Heritage Home Goods to open their new store, The Roseberry House, at 114 Harding Way East, last Wednesday.
“We didn’t want to see another empty storefront. My aunts owned a shop similar to this one in Marion when I was growing up. I spent time with them, along with my mom, doing crafts and decorating since I was a little girl,” said Holly.
The business offers primitive crafts, home goods, antiques and custom framing and signs.
“We are excited about bringing custom framing back to Galion,” said Holly.
Holly said the business is a family affair.
“Our sons will all be helping out in some way,” Holly said. “Nicholas and Weston are helping with pricing and the register and also help Landon some with the woodworking. Steve will be doing the custom framing with help from Landon and Weston.”
The couple have two other sons, Michael and Jackson.
Steven said the shop does take consignments and purchases from other local crafters, artists and woodworkers.
“We work with a few people that offer items that are in line with the products that we create and sell,” Steven said.
The store is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.
“We are closed on Sunday for a day off with our family. We needed another day to work and create new items for the store,” said Holly.
Joe Kleinknecht, director of the Galion-Crestline Area Chamber of Commerce, said the Rose family is another example of local people investing in the city.
“They have made an investment in their hometown. Specialty shops like The Roseberry House help make a town a destination,” said Kleinknecht during a ribbon cutting at the business on Tuesday morning.
