Just about anything lining the displays would make a perfect gift with mama’s name written all over it.

Shhhh carries trendy clothing items, footwear, jewellery, rustic décor and artwork, funky accessories, novelty items and so many must-have goodies.

The PrinceGeorgeNow team caught up with Shhhh owner Shannon Horrigan and learned a thing or two about the store.

The original 2007 location was up at the Hart Centre Mall for a mere six months. Business was going so well that Shannon was able to relocate to a larger space, leasing the current spot on Westwood Dr.

We asked Shannon what inspired her to run her own business, to which she replied, “I turned my addiction into a business.”

The self-proclaimed shopaholic has always been obsessed with funky, statement jewellery.

It didn’t take long for a huge inventory of purses and sparkly everything to overtake Shannon’s home. Alas- Shhhh Home & Gift was born.

And for all of you animal lovers out there, we couldn’t resist featuring the store’s adorable mascot Hank!

Hank celebrated his first birthday back in September of last year, complete with cake smash and all!

It doesn’t get any cuter than that!

Sadly, Hank doesn’t make regular appearances at Shhhh anymore, he’s just gotten too big!

Hit up the lovely Shhhh Home & Gift for amazing treasures not found anywhere else in Prince George!

The amazing and friendly staff are beyond ready to make your shopping experience a memorable one.

“Our mission is to provide unique, fun and beautiful products while delivering the best service we can in a fun atmosphere. We want you to leave here feeling like you made new friends,” beams Shannon.

Fun fact: PG is where Shannon met her husband and best friend over 45 years ago. They finally got married last year. Congrats, you two!

Why we love it: Customers absolutely rave about their friendly service.

Where: 2348 Westwood Dr
