The South Porch
Unique Home Décor & Gifts for Every Reason, Every Season, and Lifestyle BY SANDIE WIESE PHOTOS BY CHANG PHOTOGRAPHY
estled in the South Dakota countryside, a pleasant fifteen mile drive from Sioux Falls, The South Porch is a must stop and shop. Offering Unique Home Décor & Gifts for Every Reason, Every Season, and Lifestyle, The South Porch is, indeed, located in the quaint and welcoming south porch of the home (built in 1918) of Heather Swenson, who along with co-owner and comrade in creativity, Jocie Davis, opened the shop featuring an ever changing and very eclectic collection of the handmade, from cute and quaint, to shabby-chic, and seasonal, with many creations one of a kind. A packrat of all that shows creative potential, Heather admits to possessing a barn “full of stuff I know I will use some day. I don’t know how yet, but I will eventually come up with something.” For Heather, and Jocie, being creative also goes hand in hand with being green and recycling, “We don’t throw anything away. We can make something out of anything if we really try!” And those somethings can be customized or
personalized to suit the buyer. Ninety percent of their wares are handmade by the two, and no two creations are entirely alike. Along with “customizing and personalizing anything you see in the store”, the two also can design wedding favors, birthday favors, and other special occasion accessories. Reserving open times to the second weekend of every month allows Davis and Swenson the time and freedom to create their future offerings. The two often brainstorm ideas together and “feed off of each other”, while still maintaining their enthusiasm. “We can’t wait until we see each other’s latest creations. We’re probably going to be each other’s best customer!” Old windows become painted works of art, initials, names, and messages adorn wooden candle holders, glass filled frames, and in the children’s section, crib décor, tooth fairy boxes, and hand painted holiday and time-out chairs. The South Porch also features the custom-designed Sagebrush line of jewelry by area artist Shelli Felderman.

Handcrafted items from a different area artisan are featured each month. “It’s so rewarding; even with the price and the time involved, it doesn’t seem like a job. It’s fun, being in business with a friend and it helps that we have lots of the same business ideas.” Even The South Porch’s uniquely designed business cards, sections of miniature wooden fences tied with raffia, call out a creativity that just can’t be fenced in; there’s no limit on the creative possibilities of this designing duo. “Home is where the handmade is.” Welcome to The South Porch.

is considered to be â€˜the sourceâ€™ for tile, marble, granite and limestone in the region. Now in our seventy-sixth year we offer, not only the finest natural one-of-a-kind stone products, quarried from select locations around the world, but also the expertise M of master tile setters and ar stone cutters to help bl e guide you in choosing the perfect product for a Lim lifetime of lasting es to natural beauty.
lthough the word “primi-chic” can’t be found in the dictionary (yet), Patty Arey, constantly uses the word, a combination of “primitive” and “chic”, to describe the style of wares offered in the newest shop on the 8th and Railroad Center boardwalk: Random Harvest. Named after its namesake book and movie, a 1940s classic starring Greer Garson and Ronald Colman, it’s just one of many old movies that Patty and her customers enjoy catching snippets of while at the shop. Formerly partners at Well...LaDeDa, Patty & Helen Broek describe the shop as a “mix of the old and the new…with little surprises here and there. Everywhere they look, customers will see something surprisingly unique.” Antiques and originals, the reclaimed and reproductions, the wood, the paint, the metal, glass, and stone, from the miniature to the very large, Random Harvest is truly the place where the curious
meets the creative — and unexpected treasures are abundant. “We try to create something new out of something old.” A former dresser becomes a book case; a former cupboard’s lower compartment becomes a custom designed comfy “kennel” spot for a sleepy dog; ladders become shelving units; burlap bags
labeled with contents and company names become pillows or totes; and stackable wood chicken nest systems are available singly or in multiples for those seeking creative organization. From the ornately carved to the broken and parts missing, Patty and Helen, often with the help of their husbands, restore, reclaim,
Made to love. Built to last. When it’s time for your new kitchen, visit the experienced, friendly designers at StarMark Cabinetry’s showroom. Working together, we’ll create the kitchen of your dreams.

repurpose, and redesign the ordinary into the extraordinary. They take special pride in the beautiful old ornately carved furniture, described as “lightened up and distressed so the pieces really come to life and pop; simply amazing!” Browsing at one level bursting with such unique creations is exciting enough, but at Random Harvest, space is more than meets the eye, and is taken to a whole other level...eye level and beyond...above and in between. Even the hook-filled ceiling and the exposed ductwork are not immune to becoming a blank canvas to Patty and creative finishing touches by creative cohort Helen. “Everything here is for sale, including the display furniture and fixtures,” says Arey, quickly adding, “with the exception of my dogs when they visit.” Swan Creek Candles, along with a line or two of dressings, glazes and southern cheese straws, not found in this region of the country, some with accompanying recipes, are also featured, as are the many creations of Helen and Les Broek, and shelf sitter signs, which Arey calls “permanent greeting cards”, printed with sayings both humorous and heartfelt are also available.

I always see something new they’ve come up with.” Although Random Harvest doesn’t sell online, nor do they have a website, they do have an e-mail newsletter they welcome customers to sign up for. “We try to accommodate specific requests from customers and can keep an eye out for the requested items or we can sometimes also make an item. They are especially excited about the
shop’s location. “We’re pleased to see that Sioux Falls is not just expanding its outer edges, but is also keeping its core.” They liken a visit to 8th and Railroad Center to strolling a boardwalk. And when browsing Random Harvest, don’t be afraid of emitting an appreciative exclamation of awe at the inspired creativity, as according to Patty & Helen, “If we haven’t overwhelmed someone… if we don’t get an ‘oooh!’ or an ‘aaah!’ during their visit, then we haven’t done our job!”
