Linda's Creative Gifts, originally TMC Boutique, was established in 2009. Being an artist herself, owner Linda Tribuna knew the challenges artists face in getting their work shown. That spurred her to open a store that would be a place that was "Home to the Local Artist." The store has broadened its products which now also features other US and Fair Trade artists with inspirational stories behind their work. Linda is known for her beautiful pencil drawings, charisma, and an eye for accessorizing any outfit or offering ideas for the perfect gift.
