People love this shop’s variety and its vibe, says owner Katie Nordby. “We are a family-owned small business. We love partnering with 26 local artists and organizations and giving back to the community as much as possible. Lotus Lake Gifts has gifts that you won’t find anywhere else- including handmade, new, and vintage.”
After experiencing a few life events, Nordby and her mother decided to realize their dream and opened Lotus Lake Gifts in June 2016. In addition to its cool atmosphere, it keeps all shoppers of all ages happy with its little free library on site, toys to play with and dog treats, too.
