About Joyce

alt

Joyce believes everything she sells is a beautiful treasure, and everyone deserves to have beautiful things in their home. Combined with items from The Peacock Inn, Joyce collects items of all kinds to sell: eclectic, antique, modern, etc.


“You don’t know how long you have on this earth, so you should wake up each morning and love everything you see in your home. If you don’t love it, get rid of it and put something in there you do, something that makes your heart sing.”


Joyce Bohn has spent many years as a business owner and overall people person. She was owner of Somewhere in Time for about 10 years, a shop she ran in the current Brass Peacock location in downtown Savage, Minnesota. Similar to The Brass Peacock, Somewhere in Time was a shop filled with treasures and other collectibles. Joyce left Somewhere in Time to follow her lifelong dream of owning and running a bed & breakfast. Joyce found the former C.H. Klein mansion and thought it would be the perfect location for the business she had in mind. After spending a year restoring the mansion to be what she had envisioned, The Peacock Inn opened on Valentines Day of 1999. She had updated it with custom-made drapery and bedding in each of the five bedrooms, restored the stained glass windows, and filled each room with a collection of unique antique decor. With Joyce’s dedication to each guest, being the proprietor of The Peacock Inn turned into a 24/7 job. Joyce decided to close the inn after 12 years, on December 31, 2010, to spend more time with her friends and family.


But Joyce couldn’t stay away from her businesses for long. She re-opened her shop (formerly Somewhere in Time) in downtown Savage and named it The Brass Peacock. Here, she took all of the collected decor and furniture that once adorned The Peacock Inn and offered it for sale to customers at the occasional shop.


“I just love peacocks. They are so unique and so majestic, and they’re not intimidated by anybody. They’re naturally gorgeous; they don’t try to pretend they’re not pretty,” said Bohn. “I thought it just fit.”
