I’m back…yes, I know, I haven’t been around for a while, but we just finished overhauling our site and products, so I figured that we would also get back into this blog.
Life gets in the way…weeks turn into months and months turn into years. Before you know it, 2 years have passed and you didn’t even notice. I think my last blog post was in 2015? I know, I know…but hey, I’ve been busy. Just take a look at all the new gift baskets and you’ll understand why I’ve been a little preoccupied.
First, we designed new baskets like the many chocolate and candy baskets, and platters. Then we decided it was time to make our site mobile responsive…and while we did that, we gave our site a fresh new look and simplified the checkout process and other little things that most people take for granted when they are working properly. While it was frustrating (I swear, we have computer gremlins), it was also fun in a challenging way. I learned so much and also learned a bunch of things I never want to do again. But all in all, it was a rewarding experience. And now, I’m stoked to get back into adding little bits of myself and this company into this blog.
So, take a look around at our new site, sign up for our newsletters (to get coupons), and keep us in mind for the next time you may need a gift. See you soon! Lisa
Hi All, Over the years we realized that we just needed more space. We thought about enlarging the shop and moving things around, but that just didn’t work out…so we finally made the decision and moved to a larger facility at the beginning of the year, but I am very happy to say that we are still in Huntington! Even though you can’t physically visit the shop anymore, you can still visit us online or call us anytime. In lieu of trudging out in the traffic, & enduring this wicked winter weather to pick up a gift or gift basket, we are now offering a FREE LOCAL drop off service! We have created gifts and gift baskets online just for this purpose. So stay in your nice, warm home or office and visit our “Showroom” page, our “Gifts Under 20$” page and our “Gift Basket Specials” page. It’s just like you are back in the shop. Take a look around, pick what you like best and have us bring it right to you.
We are comfortably settling in to our new surroundings. For the most part, it’s business as usual, except now we have more space to work in, and that’s a great thing!
We do miss our old shop at 220 East Main Street. Heck, we were there for 16 years, much like when we left our original shop at 170 New York Ave. We were there for 10 years…but we’re so excited about what the future will bring. We look back with fond memories, but look forward to creating new ones… which leads me to this blog. ..
We will be posting video tutorials on gift basket making tricks, offering interesting basket trivia, tidbits and articles, and informing you of new exciting products we will be carrying, and welcome all of your comments.
So stay tuned…
