From the Heart recently celebrated their 26th year in business.
The gift shop and wig boutique, located at 1356 Ottawa Street, was opened in 1989 by three sisters – Jackie McCreary, Geri Maisonneuve, and Paulette Kupnicki, and they continue to run the shop together today. What started as a unique card and gift shop has also grown into a wig boutique. With years of experience the wigs available are of the best quality, look natural, and are available in modern styles and colours.
Greeting cards are a big part of From the Heart, who strive to carry beautiful and unique cards unavailable in other shops around the city. Cards for all occasions are available, with a large selection of Christmas cards and cards by local stationary artists.
There are plenty of gift giving ideas in store, from women’s fashions, to wedding gifts and baby shower gifts, and everything in between. One of their most popular items is their line of Kameleon jewellery – an interchangeable jewellery system featuring lots of colour and creativity. Some of their other bestsellers include natural soap and body care products by Rocky Mountain Soap Company, Natural Calm magnesium citrate powders, and the popular dice game Tenzi.
This holiday season parents can take advantage of their Kiddie Shopping Spree program. Children 4 and up can be dropped off at the store with a list and a budget. From the Heart staff will help the children shop for their parents or other loved ones, pick out just the right gift, ring it through the cash register, and wrap it up. An appointment is necessary and can be made by calling 519-969-2773. The Kiddie Shopping Spree is great for Christmas but is available all year round.
From the Heart is located at 1356 Ottawa Street and can be contacted by calling 519-969-2773. They’re open Monday through Saturday from 10am – 6pm and Sundays from Noon – 4pm. You can also visit their Facebook page or webpage for more information and updates.
