TLC Vintage Collection -- The Store & The Virtual Store!
CENTRAL IOWA HEADQUARTERS
FOR CHALK PAINT®
decorative paint by Annie Sloan
In August 2011, Janet Roewe Piller was looking for an easier way to create a Shabby Chic piece of furniture. A blog she had read about no stripping, no priming -- just paint! led her to email correspondence with Annie Sloan, inventor or Chalk Paint®, in Oxford, England. No one in Iowa carried the Chalk Paint® brand at that time. So within days, Janet was accepted as the first Iowa stockist for Chalk Paint® which is distributed in the U.S. by Annie Sloan Unfolded. TLC Vintage Collection LLC was formed on August 25, 2011 and within days this website was built to market the products on line, a booth was opened at the Des Moines Brass Armadillo antique mall, a blog was begun along with a Facebook page.
The first paint arrived on August 27 and before it had even been properly inventoried and shelved, people were calling to set up a time to purchase the paint! Within seven months, the store at 7518 Hickman Road in the Sherwood Forest Shopping Center opened on April 1, 2012.
Today the store is staffed by owner Janet, her husband Dan Piller and Mary Lou Killebrew. Each can help you with your paint and finishing options. The store is brimful of ideas to inspire you in your restyling of furniture, cabinets, decor and even woodwork and concrete floors! Stop by here to shop or in our store where the coffee is always on!
