Our History

Our owners work here. Not in some giant office far, far away.

Gifts & Gadgets is locally owned and operated. The original owners (Mark and Christine) worked in retail and customer service positions for most of their lives. After many years working in a big box retailer, Mark decided to leave the corporate environment. In 1995, he opened a booth at a local flea market. With the support of Christine, Opal (Mark’s mother) and loyal customers, Mark outgrew the flea market and opened a small retail location nearby. In 2002 Gifts & Gadgets opened the first store in Bessemer and moved to the current location in 2015.

Mark passed in January 2017, but the store remains under the ownership of Christine and management of two long-term employees, who joined the family in 2007.
