The graced story simply began with a little idea and an open retail space in a small Wisconsin town. A girl with big dreams and probably an unhealthy lack of fear decided she was ready to take a big life leap. She would open a place where people could rent items, mostly unique vintage finds, to style weddings and events.
As planning for graced was underway we realized that we not only wanted to be a store that catered to brides and couples. We wanted to be a place where anyone could stop by and find something that they loved and could envision in their home. We decided to add in retail and focus on smaller home decor items but to also show case the talent of some of our local furniture artists.

The MH Dempsey building under construction circa 1914
Our flagship store is located in the prominent historic MH Dempsey building which was constructed as the original home of the Manitowoc Gas Company between 1914-1919. While the 2nd floor housed the gas company the first floor retail spaces were home to the National Barber Shop and Baths and a dental office. The building is currently home to the award winning Flower Gallery florist and the historic confectionary, Beernsten's Chocolate.
Every item in graced is chosen with intention and hand picked by our creative team. We are dedicated to supporting local artists and creatives and feature items unique to Manitowoc and Wisconsin. We also try to source items from small creative businesses across the county who share the graced values.
