Vermeer Glass Art
Jim & Julie Vermeer recently bought, gutted and renovated the old Spencer Pharmacy at 302 Grand. It's now the beautiful new home of Vermeer Glass Art.
They take great pride in their handmade fused art glass and we enjoy the creative process involved. You'll also find unique pieces from other artists in the region.
Early next year, they will host a variety of classes.
Store hours are Monday-Friday 10am-6pm and Saturday 9-3pm.
Welcome to Spencer Main Street!
We are proudly celebrating our 34rd year as a Main Street Iowa program this year. Spencer was founded on fertile soil, tested by fire, and thrives because of its people. The same is true for Main Street. We are a non-profit organization that works hard on economic vitality, historic preservation and bringing people downtown because we know there is no grander place!
Spencer is one of 55 Main Street communities in this great state of Iowa. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and are funded primarily through a Self-Supported Municipal Improvement District (SSMID) that was established in 1987 and supported by the City of Spencer. That district includes more than 180 businesses in Downtown Spencer.
Looking for an incentive to open a new business in town that isn't already here? The Retail Kickstarter Program was created to help spur retail growth in Spencer. This unique program offers a forgivable loan of up to $25,000 in conjunction with a 0% interest loan of up to $25,000 for qualifying projects. For more information and to get an application contact Nancy Naeve at firstname.lastname@example.org.
