About Trove’s History

Sisters Elizabeth and Mary opened this gem of a vintage goods store Trove (2410 Jackson St., Rockford) in 2016, but the actual building is one they have been frequenting since they were children. They fondly remember it as Bloom’s Candy Store, where they happily scooped up candy necklaces and waxed lips (remember those, kids!?!).

Charming Location

I loved chatting with Elizabeth yesterday about how her sister’s vision and confidence about what the formerly not so pretty interiors could become, convinced her to go for it. The brick and mortar location is smack dab in the middle of a modest residential neighborhood, which I find beyond charming and utterly unique in today’s marketplace!

In fact, the shop is just a hop and a skip over from Urban Farmgirl, which we recently toured RIGHT HERE.

What’s Inside

Trove is magical, as you will see. Primitive pieces and unique objects mingle with nostalgia and luscious colors that feel like a warm hug. If you are the nesting type, appreciate one of a kind finds, and admire a rustic refined look for home interiors, this is a destination which will tug at your heartstrings.

Oh, and did I mention the Westies who run the place? Absolutely adorable West Highland White Terrier pups dressed in tartan who bring smiles to all. (And it was not lost on me that Trove is located in the Highland neighborhood of Rockford!).

Let’s shop, and I wonder if you’ll be able to guess what I took home? (I’ll reveal in the comments).

    What a perfect little shop! Those Westies are so cute in their little buffalo check jackets and cute, cute faces.
    I noticed a few old sleds and because I love mine, I’m thinking you had to have one too. They are cute on your front porch with some little white skates, or inside with pillar candles of differing heights, or to hold your presents at Christmas.

      Yes! Mine always goes on the front porch, and each year I decorate it differently. Trove does such a fabulous job! Happy weekend, friend.

    What I would have liked to take home were the darling little Westies! Of course that would exceed the legal limit of dogs in our city because we already have 3 little mutts. 😉 They are just SO darn cute!

      Oh, they are even cuter in person! So adorable, they didn’t seem real and taking such good care of the shop with their hard work.:)

      It’s a must see for shopping in Rockford – and the owner is the creator of Main Street Market – a twice a year huge vintage market in Rockford that draws people from all over the country. You should definitely try to travel to it in the fall or spring!
