Forbush ARTiques
is one of the most creative stores in southern Iowa! Marlin and Joanne (Jo) O'Conner, owners, built the store, which includes her studio and a workshop. Forbush was a town in the early 1900's near their store location. The O'Conner's have many Centerville, Iowa historical items on display in the store.

Jo is a professional artist and works in a variety of mediums, but her specialty is clay tile-making. She sells her artwork in the store, as well as over twenty artists' handcrafted items on the main floor. Jo also offers an affordable custom picture framing service. A wide variety of authentic antiques are for sale on the second floor.

Because Jo sells art and antiques, she thought Forbush ARTiques would be a good name for her store! It opened in May of 2010.
