I have always loved local small businesses who have unique items for sale that you won’t find in the big box stores. You know the type of stores I’m talking about right? The ones that some people may think are full of kitchy gifts but you always find something for that hard to buy for person on your gifts lists. It’s exactly why this week’s small business of the week is A Flair for Gifts & Home in Progress Ridge.
Owner and local Beaverton resident Michelle Bottaro followed her dream of providing a gift store in her community that was for her community. She has created a place that is full of warmth and personality. It’s a place where you can find anything from a gift for yourself (because who doesn’t love treating themselves) to a housewarming gift or birthday present, you are sure to find just the right gift.
I personally am a huge candle fan so I appreciate that they carry candles from several different candle companies and that the fragrances aren’t overpowering. If candles aren’t your thing there are plenty of other fabulous home decor items to help your home feel warm, welcoming and reflect your personality.
