About Accents Fine Home Interiors and Gifts
Accents Fine Home Interiors and Gifts is a labor of love that was born out of many late night talks and planning about the future between myself and my husband, Joseph. Creativity and design have always been a passion of mine since I was a little girl, but as I grew up life took me in to the medical field where I worked as an Emergency room nurse for almost a decade. Though it was where God had me for that season of my life, I knew I wanted to do something different something more for my family. With the prompting from my husband and family I took a huge leap of faith and opened Accents Fine Home Interiors and Gifts in November 2007. With absolutely no education or background in retail I hit the floor running and forged my own path as I went. Our roots are grounded in home decor and decorative accessories. My goal was to provide a place for beautiful and unique accents for the home that were for every home. I wanted my store to be an inviting and livable space. Over the years we evolved in to a home decor store and gift shop for all occasions. I spend my time looking for the latest and greatest items to bring to my customers. Accents sells many one of a kind and home spun items for many artisans all over the states, many of which have become my dearest friends. In August of 2012 we moved from our original space of 1800sq feet to our existing space of well over 4000 sq feet. In the space I am able to bring even more to my customers by now offering an extensive baby gift area.
Accents Fine Home Interiors and Gifts started off with one person – that being myself – with the occasional help from my mother and my husband, and as our family expanded in July of 2009 with the birth of our son, Sam we added more people. Now 8 years later we have a full time staff of 7 amazing women. Kim, Tammy, Leslie, Carmen, Sharon and Jamie all had previous careers as well, and have now found a home at Accents Fine Home Interiors and Gifts for this season of their lives and Lindsay who is in college forming her own path.
Accents Fine Home Interiors and Gifts offers bridal baby and gift registry. It is my passion and those of my employees to help bring beauty and happiness to your life. Our staff is very knowledgable and eager to help you find the perfect accents for your home, or that perfect gift for any occasion from birthdays to holidays and everything in between.
It is my personal privilege to serve this community and fulfill a lifelong passion to create and see its labor of love come to life. I love having customers from all over the region who are our friends and each gets personal and special treatment. I feel that I have been blessed abundantly, and we are always looking for ways to serve and give back to our community and organizations and people who have made us what we are today.
