This award goes to the owner of an eclectic boutique. Since hanging her “shingle” in 1998, the owner has been singularly committed to sharing her lifelong love of other cultures with residents and visitors of the North Coast, while devoting equal attention to the needs of the community right outside her front door.

The stores are filled with colorful products from all over the world, including Bali, Thailand, Nepal, Mexico and the United States. The owner has nurtured close personal relationships with the artisans and craftspeople whose products she sells.

The first boutique opened in Cannon Beach, and a second location was opened in Astoria in 2013. This is truly entrepreneurship at its best.
