It’s always a pleasure to discover a new place to shop! I wandered into Flaire Celebrations last month while shopping for Christmas gifts. I was so impressed by this locally owned boutique!
Laura Lineberry opened her Riverside shop in November of 2010. Her mission is to offer a variety of unique items that shoppers cannot find at a large chain store. She stocks a wide variety of seasonal items, as well as merchandise for other celebrations-birthdays, weddings, baby showers, etc. Flaire Celebrations has an amazing selection of gift items! And you’ll probably find something for yourself, too.
Laura has a natural ability to stock her boutique with fun, unique products. In addition, she sews the adorable aprons in her shop herself! You’ll also find a wide selection of jewelry, candles, and bath/body products.
One thing that really impresses me about Laura’s business is that she seeks out companies with a mission when she orders new stock. For example, you can find a large selection of A Cheerful Giver candles. They employ special-needs adults in their production line. In addition, she carries jewelry lines from women entrepreneurs in countries such as Costa Rica, Equador, and Uganda. Also, Laura sells ornaments from women entrepreneurs in the Philippines and a company based in Jerusalem. Hand-painted eggs from a family in Austria and greeting cards from Vietnam are also featured in her store.
I absolutely love this! When customers purchase these items, they are indirectly helping people who need assistance. I think that’s great!
If you love personalized items, be sure to use the touchscreen station to completely personalize a variety of items, including cups, pens, luggage tags, phone cases, and more! This system allows you to choose your pattern, colors, and initial (or monogram or full name). Once you finalize your design, Laura prints it on-site and inserts it into the product. It’s easy to do one item or a matching set.
Flaire Celebrations is also home to Mammie’s Attic. You will find antiques and vintage/painted items selected by Barb Adams in two of the rooms of this adorable 1925 bungalow. Barb joined Laura in 2016, and they have a great partnership! Barb’s items are styled in an inviting, uncluttered way. It’s easy to imagine bringing her pieces home!
Another awesome aspect of Flaire Celebrations is the Fern Garden in the back! It is available for rent for events. It has hosted parties, showers, and even small weddings.
Flaire Celebrations is located on Park Street in Riverside near King Street. The address is 2762 Park Street, Jacksonville, Florida 32205.
You can also visit the shop online HERE. But you should really go in person. It’s worth the trip!
