Silver Lining

Silver Lining owner Lori Melhus cuts the ribbon to celebrate her new shop location.

Silver Lining was welcomed to its new space by Dutch Greeters with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Nov. 22.

Owner Lori Melhus offers quirky and seasonal gifts, spa supplies, home fragrances and unique children’s toys and clothing. The shop has been in Pella for almost 12 years, and Melhus’ eccentric selection of products keeps changing and growing.

The new space is completely remodeled, showing off exposed brick and providing 500 square feet more than the shop’s previous location. Melhus says deciding how she’d like to stage her products has been a challenge, but she’s excited to have more space.

The shop is located at 637 Franklin St.
