Every month throughout 2015, the Phelps Chamber of Commerce is shining the spotlight on a member to be honored as Woman Owned Business of the Month. Just in time for the holiday shopping season, that special recognition is given to an independently owned gift shop specializing in unique, quality gifts and décor.
Evident from the moment you enter Hometown House Warmings, the entire environment resonates primitive charm with a touch of antique… that exact charisma that makes a house a home. Offering a selection of salt box houses; Wind & Willow dips, desserts & soups; Organo Gold coffee, a private label of preserves and sauces; distressed interior & exterior décor, textiles, linens, candles & other seasonal favorites… there truly is something for everyone.
Adding to the appeal, Hometown House Warmings is a family business, owned by Debbie Fisher and managed by her mother-in-law, Gloria Fisher, with the book keeping and private parties run by her mother, Joan Graham, who shared in Debbie Fisher’s dream.
For years, Debbie Fisher had talked about opening a gift shop in downtown Phelps, but it was starting to feel like it would never actually happen. So in 2014, she decided to cross this dream off her bucket list and Hometown House Warmings opened its’ doors for business.
“My favorite thing about living and working in Phelps is the people” Fisher says, “and since Hometown House Warmings opened I’ve met a lot of great local people as well as people who are visiting from out of the area.” In its’ first year, Hometown House Warmings has grown significantly, even switching spaces with a neighboring business (Hometown Realty, LLC—also owned by Debbie Fisher.)
To learn more about Hometown House Warmings, stop in during normal business hours (10AM-5PM, Monday through Saturday) at 2 Church St. in downtown Phelps NY or follow them on Facebook.com/hometownhousewarmingsgiftshop
