A Tiny (But Mighty) Boutique
When Nancy and Dean Riesterer bought their home, it came with a small backyard shed full of junk, animal nests and lots of cobwebs. Nancy, along with daughter Emily and daughter-in-law Karen, decided to transform the once-shabby shed, situated in a secluded corner of the one-acre property, into a teeny home decor boutique.
The enterprising trio rehabs vintage furniture, filling the rest of the 8′ x 10′ space with accents and gifts. While the Riesterer’s are currently renovating their own home, they love to have shoppers come visit The Tiny Shed. It’s an unconventional business, to be sure, but the family delights in the experience.
On open days, they put out refreshments and fire up their chimenea, creating a welcoming and festive vibe. The shed gets completely refreshed with new goods and decor every four to six weeks, so there’s always something new to see. If you don’t happen to catch The Tiny Shed during its open hours, it sells some of their charming merchandise at Saving Grace boutique.
The Tiny Shed is now listed on HipCamp.com, an online resource to help travelers and adventurers discover unique camping experiences across the United States. Guests can stay the night in The Tiny Shed, waking up in the morning to the charming Indiana countryside and fresh cups of coffee.
