Joy Schweitzer Ermert opened her quaint gift and furniture shop which blends the old with the new to bring out your unique personality, on 57th Street back in 2015. The store quickly outgrew the square footage and they moved to their new location at 720 58th Street in 2017, and now this location is bursting at the seams with great items.

“I am so proud to be a small piece of the revitalization process of Downtown Kenosha!” Joy told Downtown Kenosha magazine. “I fell in love with Downtown Kenosha when I was a little girl. Coming down with my grandma was always a special treat. My favorite store by far was Furr By Us. My grandma always took us there. Unfortunately, as the years went by, so many of the mom and pop stores closed, the focus of Kenosha was moving west. But, I believe in our downtown and all the wonderful new businesses coming to the area.”
Joy and her staff will be happy to help you find a perfect piece of furniture or housewares. Stop in, to find that perfect item that’s calling your name.
