Michelle started her business career when she was twenty-eight-years old. Michelle was always a visionary and originally started her career in Interior Design. Many years later she decided she wanted to grow more into her community and be surrounded with loved ones. Pacific Treasures & Gourmet was where it began. It originally started off small but quickly her mom’s friend inspired her to go big. Now with fifteen employees and a store filled with everything you can possibly conceive, she has done just that. pacific

Running a business runs in her blood, with her aunts owning a fashion boutique in San Francisco and her family owning businesses in town, it is no wonder she is a natural. Michelle wanted to express herself in a way that she can share with her community. You will find many colors and assortments in Pacific Treasures & Gourmet that to some extent express a side of Michelle. She seeks out what is unique and is always updating her inventory.

You can find everything from garden decor, bath and body, baby clothes, toys, cookware, baskets, candles, chocolate, teas, dishware, BBQ seasoning and supplies, ornaments, jewelry, wind chimes, signs, flags, mats, pet items, and their top seller volcano candles. It’s truly a treasure store because you don’t know what you will be able to find. pacific

Pacific Treasures & Gourmet offers complimentary gift wrapping as well as gift certificates. They have the friendliest staff in town dedicated to helping you find the inner treasure inside. Come and explore, for ’tis the season of wonder.

Whether it was short stories, poems or lyrics, words came to her as second nature. In high school, she started to realize her poetry and short stories were worthy of publishing. After some encouragement from teachers she began to publish her work through the schools paper. Later she joined Poetry Jam groups in the valley and competed for first place. At her first competition she landed 2nd place, and kept writing. She currently wears various hats of work and loves to learn about everything. Her hobbies include going for hikes, photography, writing, reading, attending social events and more.
