Shop Small + Support Local
Lisa Dethlefs runs Iron Rose with an eclectic mix of home decor, clothing, gifts, hats, jewelry and more. About 90% of the merchandise is sourced locally. Lisa says she tries to partner with as many local artists and businesses as she can. Shades of Chic, owned by Susan Cox, operates in the back of the boutique where she paints cabinets for customers.
Lisa also makes her own bleached tie-dye t-shirts sold at Iron Rose. Sizes range from S - 2XL and include a variety of different designs with quotes, graphics, or music artists like Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, and ACDC. Each tee is unique and handmade!
Customers can find items like pillows and t-shirts from Wretched Swank in Hamilton, Ohio; essential oil necklaces and perfumes from Three Arrows Oils in Oxford, Ohio; candles from Bourbon Candle Co. in Kentucky; and that's just to name a few!
Some items can be found exclusively at Iron Rose, like Roots & Rust in Middletown.
They create easy to care for houseplants using vintage and repurposed containers. Owned by Stacy Terry, she calls her business "a twist on common greens" with pieces to fit any bohemian, industrial, farmhouse, or mid-century style.
Iron Rose also carries a line of boutique clothing including denim, blouses and hats— along with a vintage and second-hand section where you can shop one-of-a-kind accessories, clothing, decor and handbags.
The overall boutique style can be described as rustic chic combined with a vintage and trendy flair. Iron Rose's vision is to be a welcoming hangout where creativity thrives.
DIY Workshops + Events
Located towards the back of the boutique is a large collaborative space for workshops and events, ran by VIBE: A Creative Hangout. Their mission is to host a social gathering space where you can come hang out, learn something new, and create.
