Back Story: The Gift Horse was established in 2000 by Martha Brown, Linda Brown & Teresa Edmonson. After 14 years of business, lots of growth, challenges, lovely gift items and even better customers, Martha Brown & Paula Milligan sold their "gem" to spend time with their families. Kelley Chandler and Erin Sharber took over the business January 2014. Since then we have enjoyed getting to know each and everyone of you and look forward to serving you in the future.


Gift Horse Gals:

  Amber joined our team in April 2019 ready to hit the floor running. Her infectious smile and go-getter attitude make working with her a pleasure. You don't have to talk with her long to know that her top priorities are her daughter, Journi and husband, Justin. Amber truly enjoys her job at TGH and her favorite product is Ronaldo Designer Jewelry because of the special meanings behind their products. 

  Sonya is the proud mom of, Clay and Kyle, and wife of Dustin. She started at TGH in October 2019 and has become a vital part of our team. Sonya is a quiet, gentle spirit with a very creative mind and beautiful penmanship. She jumps right into any task put before her and takes pride in everything she does. Sonya's favorite product is the Giving Bear. 


   Molly is the newest GH Gal to join our team. 

   Joy. It's the reason I love what I do! The moment a person opens a gifts that truly delights them, that smile of appreciation, and bringing people happiness is what drives me.  After many years in retail, I’ve learned what the simple joy of giving to others can do.  It isn’t about the product, it is about the story, the intent, and living generously and intentionally.  My goal is to create a shop that not only offers delightful gifts, but feels like home. I welcome you to join me at our little house just off of Main. -xoxo Kelley Chandler
