It's been over 5 years since we were given the chance to open a gift boutique in downtown Decorah! My Brother-in-Law and his wife found this little gem available for rent on Water Street while on a little getaway for their Anniversary. They came up with a wonderful proposition to open the store and feature their gorgeous Milkhouse Candles, of course I jumped aboard! Knowing the people and visitors of Decorah would fall in love with Milkhouse's natural clean-burning candles, I accepted their offer to start-up and manage this new venture! It has been a great pleasure getting to be involved in spreading Milkhouse to thousands, and getting to know every person that steps through the door!
We started with just candles and puppets in this little store. Over the years we have added so many more much-loved gifts. I have happily taken over ownership of Milkhouse Candles & Gifts and with it have changed our name to Sparrow's. Sparrow is our Family Name and therefore what better choice then a name that bridges us all together. I am very thankful to my in-laws, Eric and Janet, for inviting my family and me to be involved in their Milkhouse Family. It has been a journey that we will continue to invite others to follow!
