Our Story

divider2

Grounded In Hartley is a celebration of our home.  We want people to know that we are glad that they have chosen to be here – at Grounded, in Hartley, in Iowa.  Our families have become such a important part of our lives and there is much to celebrate.

We still have an endless supply of great ideas and hope to inspire others to jazz up their day and their spaces with something funky and junky.  Something can always be done to re-invent, re-imagine, rethink, refresh, reuse, redesign, recreate, refurbish and most importantly, recycle ‘junk’ to make this a better, more beautiful world.  It is invigorating and cleansing for our souls and our spaces, and it make us – and other funky junkers – happy.  We also hope to focus on making people more comfortable with and less afraid of color, so they can actually use it, work with it, and love it.

Coffee…

We have a great coffees from UP Coffee Roasters, Davidson’s teas, smoothies, grilled breakfast items – beef burritos, sausage or bacon sandwiches with egg and cheese on Shaughnessy’s cracked wheat bread.  Muffin tops, scones and other baked treats.

Fun…

This is our life.  Creating, painting, being around great people, sharing ideas, making old new, restyling and always searching for new inspiration.  It is what we love.

Junk…

divider2

Grounded  began as an occasional market in 2006.  We take old furniture and household items and give them new life by painting, distressing, recovering and repurposing.  We are open on special weekends, scheduled in advance to coincide with holidays or local festivities.

We also rent our space for events – showers, graduations, celebrations  and meetings.

Paint…

divider2

In 2015 we started creating our own vintage paints.  We have been painting with mineral type paints for several years and have created a type that we are fond of using for our purposes.  They are project paints, not intended for walls.  We chose colors that we have used for years and named them after favorite people.

Our Business

Grounded In Hartley has become a welcoming coffee business.   We are extremely grateful for all of our customers and want them to feel at home here and in Hartley.  It is our desire that our customers will look to us to brighten their days and provide great, consistent drinks and food and friendly service.

MaeB began in 2006 as an occasional market selling repurposed furniture and home goods, the coffee shop was the 2007 expansion, also the beginning of a web presence.  We tried expanding into Spencer in 2011 – epic fail.  We lost a dear uncle in 2013, Dan Degnan.   Handling his estate and continuing to care for his acreage has provided many wonderful experiences and changes.   2018 brought a name and direction change and Terri Saarie joined our team.  2019 saw a renovation of the north parts room into living quarters for the Daus and the Welchs.  2020 introduced a pandemic that has changed all of our lives, but we are continuing on.

As Hartley’s population changes and grows, we hope to grow our Grounded family.  The smell, the taste, the caffeine perk and the shared experience of coffee have become a staple of our modern life and culture.  Our goal is tap into a fraction of those millions and possibly introduce a few new ones to the many benefits of coffee for our health and well being.
