It all began in 1983. A vision for a shop filled with trinkets and treasures for neighbors, family and friends. Eddie and Bette would go to market, list in hand full of special requests from her friends who wanted to make their home unique…blue and white, rose medallion, serving trays, picture frames for grandchildren. Each was looked for and hand chosen by Bette. With word of mouth, the AGB circle of friends grew and grew – every person knowing they would get special attention and she would find the PERFECT gift or item for their home or family.
Her daughter Samantha joined in 1994, helping out as the business began to grow in leaps and bounds. Side by side, Bette and Sam would display the beautiful items purchased from market and local artisans. Companies heard of Bette’s special touch, and so our corporate gift side began. Bette’s other daughter Cynthia joined the team in 2009 and has added her special design touch.
34 years later, our family continues to expand. The children who visited our store to see the Christmas Village display are now going to college, getting married and starting their own families.
We consider ourselves very blessed that we are a part of customer’s lives, and our hope is that we bring joy to every life that is touched by one of our gifts.
Retired since 2012, Bette still visits the store to make sure all is how she would want it to be…and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
