Your guide to all things warm, cozy and luxurious.
Our storefront is located in the quaint town of Walworth, just a mile from the lakefront town of Fontana and less than 15 mins away from downtown Lake Geneva.
Stop by and experience our unique offerings which include a mix of new and quality consignment furniture and home goods as well as gift items in a variety of price ranges including the gorgeous and affordable luxury candle line, Voluspa.

Our goal is to brighten your day, bring some beauty and comfort to you and maybe even help you find something you can bring home to help you keep that warm and cozy feeling going. That is the Cashmere Compass.

Home Staging is a clever and effective marketing tool when looking to sell a home. The process begins with a consultation- up to two hours of a walk through inspection and then we provide a comprehensive report in detail on all the ways we see your home can be improved before listing. At that point you can choose to use our professional analysis to improve your home on your own or continue to use our services to help get the home professionally staged.
Every home is different, so depending on what your home needs as well as your budget, we will pick paint colors, suggest removal of items/clutter, remove/rearrange furniture, and replace furniture and home goods with new items to help make the home shine. We can quote for a light staging which often involves switching out a few things, removing clutter, and rearranging to better showcase the space.
A full home staging services involves bringing in rental furniture, lamps, decor, etc. to stage a home that may be empty and in need of inspiration to prepare it for selling. Statistics have shown that staging homes helps prospective buyers imagine themselves living there and thus are more likely to make an offer. The initial consultation and full staging report is $200. Costs vary for further services to stage the home depending on the scope of the project. We would be happy to get you a quote any time!
Estate Sales are often needed when the furniture and goods in a home need to be liquidated, usually quickly before the final sale of the home. Our team will price and stage the items in the home as well as advertise and conduct the sale so you don't have to. Our 10+ years of estate sale experiences have qualified us to make this a seamless and effective process for all of those involved. Please contact us for more specifics.
Hi! I'm Stacey and I have a pillow and candle obsession. No, this is not Pillows and Candles Anonymous, but it may help you better understand who I am and why I opened a store in Walworth, WI.
Born and raised in Walworth, WI, at 18 I skipped off to sunny CA for a college education and fell in love with the sunshine and beauty that I found everywhere. Fast forward eight years and you'll find me planning and coordinating weddings in Italy (yes it was every bit as dreamy as it sounds)! After returning stateside, I planned, designed and coordinated every kind of event you could imagine. From baby showers and New Year's Eve galas, to unique weddings and Easter brunches- my creativity was being exercised a lot, and I started to realize how much I loved it.
After years of late nights and long hours, I contemplated how I could continue that creativity and use my talents to help others with their creative visions in a more 9-5 kind of way. ENTER THE CASHMERE COMPASS. First, a blog to scratch that creative itch, but then a signature on paper indicating I had now taken over the old bank in my hometown- I was going to be a store owner! Immediately, I thought about all the yummy things I would be ordering and styling in the shop, BUT FIRST A TOTAL renovation of the building was needed. So I rolled up my sleeves and got to work (along with the help of some other lovely and hard working people). It must be said, I could not have done it without my mother. Speaking of her...
My mother, Ruta, is a resident of Walworth and respected realtor of 15+ years. Her connections in real estate help keep the quality consignment portion of this store flowing! You never know when a home will sell and the furniture in it needs a new home! With good taste and a keen eye, she helps me narrow down the items that are good enough to make it into the shop. While she still sells real estate full time, you can see her from time to time bopping around the shop and chatting with customers. She is also chief orchestrator of our estate sales as no one knows homes and furniture better than her!
My passion is helping people realize their vision and then making the dream come true. Working with all kinds of different styles, textures and colors is what I love best. I also take great joy in providing unique and thoughtful gifts because life is short and we should all be trying to make someone smile today, right? From crazy funky and gorgeous silky pillows to Voluspa Candles and all their irresistible scents- I'm sure you'll find something here that will make you feel all the warm, cashmere-y type feels.
So here we are, in my little home town, helping others find and create beauty and joy in as many little corners of this big world as we can. Come by and say hi- We'd love to see you.
