The Posh Pallet Boutique continued a string a progress in downtown Swanton with an opening and ribbon cutting on Friday. The home business that began as Tara’s Posh Pallets opened at 110 N. Main St. and provides all of the original products and there are many new handmade products and furnishings.
It all started in 2014, thanks to a stack of pallets and Tara Shaver’s eight weeks of unpaid maternity leave from her nursing job. With a family of now six, Shaver was trying to find a way to help keep her family’s heads above water.
With the help of her husband Matt’s craftsmanship and building talents to bring her ideas and designs into a beautiful custom piece, Posh Pallet became much more than just a hobby.
Nearly five years later, The Posh Pallet Boutique continues to grow as a small family owned and operated business with the new store front. With the addition of their store manager, Shannon Heilman, to the Posh Pallet family, the new store provides additional products created by local small businesses in the northwest Ohio area available for their customers. It’s their way to bring more support and awareness to other local small businesses and to their local communities.
The Posh Pallet Boutique, offers a variety of products to their customers – from custom and personalized home decor, hand crafted furnishings, fun and fashionable spirit wear designs and apparel, as well as fun light-humored creations from cups, to koozies, to onesies and beyond. Customers can stop in and let them know what they can create for you or a special gift.
They want to personally show their appreciation to all their customers for supporting their local family owned and operated, small business. “Without you Posh Pallets would never have become what they are today,” said Shaver.
Due to a successful opening, the store will be closed early in the week but reopen Wednesday at 10 a.m.
