In 1990, Dave and Debbie Laruwe moved to Livingston County and began this journey. Dave being in retail since he was 16 years old (built and sold furniture for Village Wood Shop) had the retail experience and the know how to open a retail shop (My dream). Our first shop was housed in a small house on old US 23 , just 600 square feet. After 5 years we out grew this building and moved to Downtown Brighton, where we remained for the next 16 years. In 2011 we decided to move our store to the quaint downtown area of Howell. We found a great 100 year old building that needed a lot of TLC and opened in March of 2011.
A family owned business and a lifelong dream fulfilled, Simply Charming of Howell is our home away from home and a labor of love that is very near and dear to our hearts.
We are very proud to offer fine home furnishings and vintage goods at affordable prices. Inventory changes daily and new goods and beautifully refinished furniture pieces are constantly arriving.
