Deborah’s Gifts in St. Joseph opened in a former three-story brick church over 30 years ago.
Linda McLear, owner, said she renovated the building and began filling it with rare and unique merchandise.
The shop has grown into a full-service gift shop offering high-quality, name-brand items for customers of all ages.
The product lines they carry include a large assortment of Yankee Candles. They have over 600 large jars in the shop making it one of the largest collections in the region. The large candle jars are $14.75 each.
In addition, they have lines of collectible brands.
She said the shop has a collectible line of Christmas carolers by Byers’ Choice Ltd which are handcrafted in the United States. A new caroler is released each year.
The shop carries Disney prints along with a Walt Disney Collection that includes The Generation of Mickey.
She said the sports memorabilia is authenticated by Major League Alumni Marketing. The collectables include items from the Royals, Yankees, the Cardinals and other teams. There are signed baseballs, bats and helmets. Their line of signed balls include Lee Smith, Vin Scully, George Brett and Whit Merrifield.
McLear said the store has a large selection of Chilmark and Legends Budweiser and German collectable steins.
The gift store has products from Wilton Armetale and Waterford Crystals, Seagull pewter, Baldwin brass and Mark Hopkins bronze.
