The Story Behind
The Porch

Sarah Cotrupi, owner of The Porch, discovered the Victorian in 2019 and decided she wanted to paint it.  After years of hard work and the help of her husband Mark and sister Christine, she transformed the building into what it is today: a home decor, antique, and gift shop! With her prior retail experience in Nebraska City and storefront The Keeping Room, Sarah has given her all in ensuring a welcoming and fulfilling experience for her customers by providing a wide display of unique gifts.
