A series featuring new Krrbies in new towns across the globe who are breaking unexplored territory. Find out what they have to sell, trade or give away.
Just an hour’s drive west from St. Louis, Stacy Goeke-Steiner Ligon of Overdue Furnishings searches with her husband to find and restore unique vintage furniture pieces in Warrenton, Missouri. “We enjoy everything from the hunt to actually finding these lost treasures and forgotten pieces to cleaning them up, bringing out their natural beauty and refinishing them so they can tell their stories,” says Stacy. We love that we are keeping things out of land fills and bringing new life into our customers’ homes.
Stacy believes that some furniture pieces speak to her in a way she can’t ignore. “When we see something interesting we feel obligated to bring it home,” she says, adding that sometimes it’s tough to let her favorite pieces go. “We’d love to keep them all for ourselves. However, we realized that would be incredibly selfish. So we’ve decided to share them with the world by opening our shop.”
The husband-wife team can also refurbish pieces for their clients. The two are working on restoring a chic French Provincial nightstand that opens up to double the top surface area. “We hoped we would get someone with as much vision as us to do a custom job on the piece,” she says. “But I am so excited about this piece, I am not sure I’ll be able to hold off much longer!”
Catch this pioneer on Krrb at Overdue Furnishings where they’re blazing new trails in the midwest.
