For the past few weeks, I chose virtual hot spots for the hot spot/business of the week. This week I decided it was time to get back to featuring local businesses, even if they may not be open, to show them some support.
I have always been a big fan of unique art pieces, and getting to see what different artisans make. The Artfull Garden and Company was founded in 2002 and quickly became the anchor of the Downtown Hillsboro area. Home to many unique gifts, The Candy Basket (founded in 1914) which is known for it’s large assortment of chocolates, international candy and nostalgic gift items also calls The Artfull Garden and Company home.
This unique shop prides itself on offering items from local artists. One such artist is Kelly Nicodemus-Miller of Krelly Designs. Krelly Designs is known for their unique umbrellas that line the front of The Artfull Garden and Company’s front. In addition, Krelly Designs also features fine art and jewelry.
I am sad that I am not able to go and visit this unique shop in Downtown Hillsboro right now, as they are closed due to COVID-19, however be sure to follow them on Facebook because they have had a few opportunities for you to order items and go pick them up.
I look forward to the day when the stay at home order is lifted and I can go support this local business once more. I love being able to purchase unique gifts for friends and family which is exactly what The Artfull Garden and Company carry.
