• Welcome to Small Town Friendliness that Feels Like Home.

  • Home Sweet Home ~ Est. 1984


    We are located in a restored mercantile building built in 1872. The building originally served St. Ansgar as a harness and leather repair shop and a barber shop.


    Home Sweet Home offers nearly 6000 square feet of distinctive American home furnishings and décor, earth-friendly goods, a fashion boutique, and unique finds.

  • These candles are simple, sustainable, and made with love in Osage, Iowa- the center of America’s heartland. Founders, Eric and Janet Sparrow, have deep-rooted ties to agricultural America. It is their Midwest upbringing that inspired the creation for a cleaner, healthier candle experience. From years of researching, experimenting, and just having fun creating, Milkhouse Candle Company was born.


  • Upcoming Events

    We offer locally baked treats in the mornings! It feels like an event, and it's just another friendly way we like to say, "Welcome to Home Sweet Home".
