Every time a customer walks into The Willow Branch, owner Marte Becker makes it her goal to have that person eventually leave saying, “I can afford to make my home beautiful now, thanks to Willow Branch.” Marte strives to offer unique yet affordable home décor and more in her store she opened just three years ago. The business began in a small site in Republic where Marte was the sole employee/operator. Now, The Willow Branch employs two part-time staff members in a 1600 sq. ft. showroom in Springfield.
Marte has several ideas she implements in order to drive her business goals. She feels your home should create the perfect atmosphere to meet or exceed your personal needs. To help her customers truly personalize their home décor, she offers home and office decorating services and chalk paint classes for every skill level. Marte also hand-paints more than 95% of the furniture sold in her store. Recently, she added a full line of clothing, jewelry and skincare. She tells her customers if they like an item, they had better buy it quickly. She vows to rarely offer the same item more than twice in the hopes The Willow Branch is the place to go when you want to buy something truly unique.
