Olive Grace Home held its grand opening on March 6 in downtown Newburgh.
Kiersten and Brad Stahl, owners of Olive Grace, said they wanted to open a store in Newburgh because they love the community. The Stahls also own The Farmhouse, which is a store located in Evansville.
“With Newburgh, we get to be part of a community and we are close to other small businesses,” Kiersten said.
Kiersten said Olive Grace has a combination of local makers and national makers in the store but they are trying to make the store different from The Farmhouse.
“The people and the other businesses [in Newburgh] have been so supportive,” she said.
Sarah Wassmer, an employee at Olive Grace, said the customers they have received so far have been “incredibly welcoming.”
“We’ve had several people reach out to us to introduce themselves and tell us about different outreach related things that we can be involved in,” she said.
Kiersten said Olive Grace has space to offer classes on topics such as wreath-making, painting classes and cooking decorating classes.
“We want to offer a broad spectrum of different classes so that there’s a little something for everybody,” Wassmer said.
Classes range from $35 to $40 and the cost includes refreshments and an hour and a half to two hours of instruction with supplies provided.
Olive Grace offers virtual shopping with Tour the Store Tuesday on their Facebook page.
“We started it at The Farmhouse and we had our first one on March 23 at Olive Grace,” Kiersten said. “We go through the store in the evening and people can shop and ask questions. They can come and pick up their items after.”
The name Olive Grace represents the olive branch and grace, “because God gives us grace every single day,” said Kiersten.
Olive Grace Home is located at 111 West 1st Street in Newburgh. For questions, contact 812-629-2100 or message their Facebook page at Olive Grace. Additional information can be found at olivegracehome.com.
