About Us

Owner, Annmarie Schade, along with her sister and daughter opened A Variety of Shades, LLC in Gibsonburg, February of 2005. All have extensive experience in both floral and home decor, accented by decades in both retail and personal party shop at home services.

Each family member, while uniquely original in their own rights, share a common gift and career in flower fashions and distinct home decorating. Noted by friends, family and customer’s for years for the flare and design panache, they decided to combine their home decorating skills, with the love of flowers, plants, family and friends by opening a truly original retail store- now located in Fremont, Ohio.

The growth the store has experienced over the past 9+ years is simply remarkable!! Now at their Potter Village location, they offer a 7,000 square foot shopping extravaganza! Be sure to visit our photo gallery for a glimpse of what you will experience.

Many have visited for the first time as customers, ALL leave knowing they will be coming back time and again, but mostly knowing they have found very helpful, sincere, knowledgeable FRIENDS.

We invite you to visit our store and experience our down-home friendship.
