Letter to Our Customers—May 28th, 2017


*Rejuvenation! * {Semi}Retirement! * Renewal! * Relaxation! * Revamping!

We have some MAJOR NEWS regarding The Front Porch! After several years of careful consideration, we have decided to change the way we operate our retail business from a full-time, open everyday business framework to an extended length "pop-up" seasonal store.

Whoa right? So….what does this mean exactly? The short version is this:


  • We will be closed all summer EXCEPT for several huge parking lot TENT SALES (watch your email and Facebook for reminders.) We will be going through our warehouses and bringing in tons of inventory, display fixtures, awesome vintage & antique items all throughout the summer—you won’t want to miss these sales!
      Here’s our tentative summer tent sale schedule:

* June 23rd – 25th *

* July 27th – 29th *

* Aug 31st – Sept 3rd *   

3) We will open with regular hours Friday, September 15th for Fall & Christmas and stay open through the end of the year. (end on New Year’s Day!) We will be coming back this fall with BOTH sides of our store. Not just fall and holiday decor but also the boutique and gift side! So basically no difference from what you are used to at The Front Porch. We will also be continuing with General Finishes Paint products! We will have a full demo/class schedule as well during our pop-up times.

4) We will remain in our current location.

5) If all goes well during this Fall/Christmas 2017 "pop-up" we are considering popping up perhaps TWICE next year! Once definitely for the 2018 holiday season but also another time possibly for Spring from March 1st-May 31st. Keep an eye out for announcements regarding that towards the end of this year! 

7) On another exciting note we will be announcing our ONLINE STORE in the next few months as well. A project we have been working on for some time and are so excited to launch! (clothing, jewelry, gifts and some decor)


We want to reassure you that we do not intend to close The Front Porch completely! We also want to assure you that we will continue to decorate for you in your home during the holidays (for as long as you want us too! haha) we would never give up our in-house decorating customers as we have become so close to all of you!

This new format is in response to our own soul-searching and desire for more work/home-life balance. We know it is no mystery to you how many hours it requires to own your own business. This change is in response to our desire to carve more time out for our family and take a breath occasionally! We are super excited about this change. We know it will be sad for some but we feel strongly this is the perfect compromise for ourselves and our customers.


Thank you for being a huge part of The Front Porch for many years--without customers like you we could not have built the following we have which enables us to take this next step in this unconventional way. Our customer list is such a blessing to us—it enables us to create this new concept with confidence our customers will remain loyal even with the shortened hours.

Feel free to email us at or TEXT Ann at 920-988-7945 if you have any questions/requests. We will be around most days for the next 3 months handling all the changes and revamping the store completely for our Fall & Christmas season! If you need PAINT we can meet you!  Vicki & Ann
