“FLORENCE, S.C. – B. Nance Fine Gifts hosted a Thursday morning ribbon cutting after recently joining the Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce.

Since opening the doors in mid-July, proprietors Jill Blaker and her daughter Danielle Blaker Nance have watched their clientele grow along with their offerings.

“We’ve added a lot of lines and a picked up a ton of new merchandise for Christmas,” Nance said. “We have a line of loungewear, some luxury pajamas that are doing really well.”

 Lounge cardigans have also been popular, though the focus remains on gifts and not clothing. The baby gifts are perfect for showers and first birthdays, Blaker said, and they’re both excited to move next year into a location almost next door with a footprint expanded by 1,000 square feet.

Before the new location opens its doors in 2017 , a visit to the market in Atlanta will provide a whole new selection of gifts and home accessories.

“We’ll have almost a brand-new store,” Nance said.”
