Joining Forces Together Since 1950

West Asheville Business Association

WABA member Celia Naranjo is the owner of Asheville Goods, a gift basket store founded in 2012.  She has been enduring the challenges of COVID and going strong into her peak holiday season. Initially, Celia says the biggest loss of business was due to local conferences that were cancelled. Now many of these conferences are Zoom meetings and hosts are sending boxes to participants homes so they can enjoy delicious Asheville nibbles while they meet on-line. Another recent trend is family members and friends sending  each other gift boxes as a COVID care package to show love and support during these difficult days.

Celia feels that her Holiday Gift Boxes will do well this year to unite loved ones that  wont be able to be together. She looks forward to spreading the joy of fabulous Asheville treats such as Crooked Condiments, Bonny Bath Organic Bodycare, and Conjure Craft Chocolate.
