Description:



Co-owners, Nicole Cockshott and Gail Szukalski met while Nicole was working an
office job and Gail was working retail. Gail was also making and selling jewelry
and Nicole was dabbling in the "craft" business on the side. After doing a few
craft fairs together, they decided to hold a "Boutique" one Thanksgiving weekend
at Gail's house.

It was quite successful and more importantly, the feedback positive. What the
heck! Craft fairs were such a pain, why not open a gift shop! The girls decided
to quit their "real" jobs and get moving.

The pair started out by doing the sensible thing and met with a business consultant.
They decided that his suggestion of drafting a "Business Plan" would be too
complicated. They already had the space picked out and lease signed, how hard
could running a business be? They were done texturing the walls and painting their
new digs so they decided to go shopping! How can you open a store without stuff to
sell? To them, that was going to be their "business plan".

So after word got out and MANY people told the two that they might as well kiss their friendship goodbye (business & friendship apparently don't mix) they headed off to
San Francisco for their very first show.

Fast-forward 12 years: Marriages, births, deaths, teenagers, babies, good health &
bad, memorable vacations, gift shows & Thai food, Fine-Things and more importantly,
the friendship has endured.
