our story

In June of 2015, my husband Rick and I purchased troVe, then called Consigned Design. I, Julie worked in the financial industry for more than 25 years. Though finance wasn’t my passion, it served a purpose and perfectly positioned me for business ownership. While renting a booth at Consigned Design, the owners were looking for a buyer and I knew this was my passion.


When it comes to vintage finds, there’s nothing I love more than patina, rust, and furniture that looks like it has a story. We have worked hard to change troVe to what it is today, found treasures old and new. We look for vendors that are unique and different from one another as to offer something for everyone.

As soon as you walk into troVe, you’ll know immediately you’re shopping at a different kind of vintage store. Gone are dusty shelves filled to the brim with broken dolls and worn out knick-knacks. We offer Portage and Kalamazoo area residents a clean, bright and airy space where they can browse our selection of quality handmade items.


At troVe of Portage, you’ll find something for everyone! Stop by our store and experience antique and vintage shopping like never before. We feature items that are handmade in the United States at prices that won’t break the bank. Choose troVe and find everything you need for your home and loved ones under one roof.
