We started alittlemorelikehome as an Instagram account in 2021, to document our journey in making our recently purchased 1950s house (which was full of needed projects) a home. In the process we became interested in buying vintage mid century modern furniture vs. new and loved it so much, that it became a business.
You could say we are a Mom and Pop Shop, we are often caring for our kids and our shop at the same time! Our store hours reflect our family focus. This business allows Elise to care for our 3 and 4 year old boys, which is truly a blessing.
Every communication you have with our business is with one of us, mostly Elise. Jeff has become skilled at repairing wooden furniture - he handles refinishing some of our pieces and we also work with a professional refinisher. If you receive a delivery or visit our showroom, you will likely meet Jeff. On occasion you might meet Larry, Jeff's dad, who helps us with long distance deliveries and pick ups - he looks like Jeff with gray hair.
Elise is responsible for marketing, photography, our website and she reupholsters dining sets. We love history and curating collections - oftentimes you can find a "Furniture History Deep Dive " posted on our shop blog or condensed into a reel on Instagram.
We also created the Omaha Modernism Guild and OMG Vintage Market - where you can shop our items in person at our pop up events, along with other local vendors!
