Iowa Economic Development: Targeted Small Business
Did you know we're a certified TSB (targeted small business) since we're a woman owned business? Thanks to the Iowa Ecomomic Development, this program is designed to help women, minorities, individuals with disabilities or service-disabled veterans in growing a small business in Iowa.
This helps us connect with other businesses and network with private and public purchasers.

Artwork to accent or complete the ambience of your home or office space doesn't necessarily have to be a traditional 2-D piece. Sometimes, bold wall assemblages to highlight a modest corner, or a one-of-a-kind sculpture to emphasize a furniture piece can be the key to completing a unique room.
We invite you to browse through and enjoy this specially curated collection.
