Having followed her husband from Kansas City, where she grew up, to the little town of Fulton, Missouri, Virginia fell in love with the town and the folks who live there and decided very spontaneously, one day, to open a gift shop. She knew very little about running a shop but was inspired by one of her mother's friends who had had one and she planned her shop with that one in mind. Virginia had learned to smock when her boys were babies and knew she wanted to feature her smocking in her little shop hence the name, Smockingbird's.
Open in the heart of the Brick District of Fulton, MO since August of 2002, Smockingbird's carries a wide range of fun, affordable gifts. Some of our gift categories include jewelry, fashion accessories, gourmet foods, serving ware, bath & body luxuries, greeting cards, novelties and of course, owner-made, handsmocked children's clothes. Smockingbird's recently received 1st place in the Specialty Shop category of the Fulton Sun's Callaway's Best contest. Virginia would like to thank all of her loyal customers who voted for the shop.
