News of Spencer expansion

April 5th, 2011

2010 has come and gone, and we are whisking through 2011.  The news around here is that we are expanding into the Spencer market.  Nancy Raska at Design Masters has invited us to join her in her expansion.  We will be located at 21 E 4th Street, in the south end of the old Perkins Office building.  Our plans are to be open in May or June.  We are presently working on various paint jobs and we would like to have a junk event this spring.  We will work very hard at trying to blog through this exciting time.

Welcome to the world of mae B

Mae B is a coffeehouse with recycled homegoods.  We are located just west of Central Avenue in downtown Hartley, Iowa – 50 2nd St SW (to be exact). 

We are open M-F 6-11am, Satursdays by whim or by event. 


After some moving about, we bought our new home this past year, remodeled and reopened in August 2009.  We have great things planned for 2010.  Please come and visit us and enjoy our fabulous new space. 

Custom painting jobs are filling our schedule rapidly.  If you are thinking about a restyle, please let us know and we can help.

Our first sale event has not been scheduled for 2010.  We are just thinking that the weather will have to warm up before we can start to work on furniture – so spring – sometime.


Hello world!
