Prairie Rose Emporium
Prairie Rose Emporium is family owned and operated in Orchard, Texas - a quaint town located in west Fort Bend County. Specializing in restoring old furniture, owner Karen Schwartz takes great pride in giving new life to old pieces.
I retired from the public school system in 2013 where I spent 36 wonderful years educating the youth. I have always been the creative type and enjoyed art, creating, and expressing my artistry within my work. It had always been a dream of mine to one day eventually own my own business - I just wasn't sure quite what exactly! After about six months of retirement, I knew it was time for that adventure!
With a strong interest in antiques, vintage items, craft shows, and finding use for something old, I started Prairie Rose Emporium in early 2014. I bought a few pieces, completed hours of research learning new and different painting techniques - and here we are today!
Living on a prairie and my love for the prairie rose flower, the name Prairie Rose Emporium really resembles home for me. Each piece of furniture is hand painted and created with love. There are no two pieces alike and I genuinely enjoy watching each piece come to life! From mirrors, dressers, and vanities to name a few, Prairie Rose Emporium has a little something special for everyone!
We also offer painting classes and are a proud retailer of Dixie Belle paint and supplies!
If you are unfamiliar with Dixie Belle paint, it is a beautiful chalk paint with adhesive qualities. No sanding, priming, or sealing required!!! Dixie Belle paint provides the perfect matte finish to your newly refurbished antiques that can then be distressed to your liking.
We offer a wide range of chalk based colors, stains, glaze finishes, brushes and more! Please contact us today to stop by to check out our inventory! You can also click here to learn more.
