The new owners of Home & Field store in Marengo celebrated the opening of the store last Saturday with a ribbon cutting and drawings for everything from fishing poles to floral wreaths.

The store includes a large section of decorative items for the home in a country primitive theme. One corner of the store is completely dedicated to sport and fishing gear with several shelves of ammunition and a refrigerator with live bait. There is also a wall of greeting cards and the back part of the store is a florist.

Owner and floral manager Jennie Miller gave a tour of her end of the store that is filled with wreaths, floral arrangements, vases and planters. The floral department features a refrigeration unit for flower arrangements as well as a walk-in refrigeration room that keeps flowers and plants at a constant 43 degrees. Miller looks forward to decorating for weddings, banquets and holidays. There is also a floral wire service so flowers can be sent anywhere.

Owner Kelley Ward works with the special area for “Old Village Gel and Stain.” She helped with arranging much of the area where there are wooden chests, baskets, chairs and candles. Stefanie Smith is the third owner. Smith invites everyone to visit the store to check out everything that’s new.

The three women are a team of partners in the store that is full of decorative items for the home that include accessories from country primitive to country classic furniture and ornaments. You can either buy the furniture “raw” and unpainted or already varnished or painted. Other services in the store include lamination, Kodak digital machine for photos, public fax and photo copier.

The store is in the building that was the Your RX Store with Pharmacist Larry Hildebrand. Hildebrand has worked with the new owners in redecorating and also building the refrigeration unit that is in the floral area.
