There is an old English lore that 2 Magpie birds together represent joy and mirth. We like to think that is us in a nutshell. You will see that happiness when you see our owners together, having fun curating the perfect gift and crafting fun projects with friends.

Sharon has a passion for volunteering and giving back to the community. This was best demonstrated through her 14 years serving police, fire, first responders and their families as the Executive Director of the non-profit 100 Club of Arizona. Sharon has been a keynote speaker across the country advocating for public safety personnel and their families. She has been recognized by numerous organizations for her advocacy including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, United States Customs and Border Protection, Arizona Department of Public Safety, the Prestigious Athena Award, local, state and national professional fire fighters, Arizona Foothills Living, and served over a month at “Ground Zero” in the aftermath of the 9/11 attack in New York City.

After selling her portion of the previous business, Sharon is ready to begin a new venture where she can use her considerable talents in support of the Prescott area.
