Our Story

Discover The Porch

In 2019, Sarah Cotrupi, the visionary behind The Porch, fell in love with a charming Victorian building. With the support of her husband, Mark, and sister, Christine, she transformed this historic gem into a vibrant home decor, antique, and gift shop.

Sarah’s journey from her successful retail ventures in Nebraska City, including The Keeping Room, to The Porch, reflects her dedication and passion for creating welcoming spaces. At The Porch, Sarah brings her extensive retail experience to curate a diverse array of unique gifts, ensuring every visitor enjoys a delightful and fulfilling shopping experience.
