Treasured Dreams Cottage to close after 11 years

Treasure Dreams Cottage, Country Gifts and Home Décor opened in June 2001 as a newcomer in the Wabash area retail-shopping scene. 12 years later, the owners, Jeremy and Dawn Wayman, have decided to close the popular shopping destination.

“We have put a lot of though and consideration into the store’s future over the last several months and decided that it was time to focus our attention in other areas,” Dawn said. “We have absolutely loved being able to treat our customers with some of the neatest and newest items in the gift market over the last 12 years. Our customers have been so wonderful and loyal. It really was my dream come true to have this store.”

The Waymans continue to be the local owners and operators of Culver’s Restaurant and welcome all their loyal customers to come see them there.

In response to why the gift store will be closing, Dawn replied, “There are a lot of factors that led u s to this decision, but ultimately it was the hardest one to make. We put our heart and soul into the gift shoppe, from the way we displayed things, to the newest and most unique products in the market, to our customer service. It just felt like the right time to step away.

“Our efforts will be focused elsewhere and we still bring our best to the table everyday at Culver’s. We certainly will miss seeing our treasured customers, though, at the gift store.”

The store will be open over the next several weeks with sales on all of the final merchandise, furniture, and unique display pieces.

“We have such a great selection of merchandise still available right now. So if our customers have had their eye on gift items, candles, seasonal merchandise, furniture or our really unique display pieces, they should certainly come in now for the best selection.

“It is really hard to say goodbye to the cottage. We started it from the ground up and hope that we have been a truly bright spot for Wabash to showcase. We have heard from so many of our customers that there really is no place like it anywhere around.”
