There are many gems found in Downtown Kingsport, but one of those has been providing specialty items for area shoppers for over 43 years. That business gem is Gazebo Party & Gift Shop. In operation in the same location all that time at 225 East Market Street, current owner Jo-Rita Clayton found herself looking for a new home after the untimely sale of the building last summer. Now that she’s found that home, she wants to make sure customers know exactly where to find Gazebo Party & Gift Shop.

“We are still here!” Jo-Rita exclaimed. “We just moved across the street, but on the opposite corner at 238 East Market Street!”

Gazebo’s new bright turquoise door faces the corner.

“I have been getting many calls daily asking where we have moved to and I just tell them to meet me at the corner of Cherokee and East Market Street,” said Jo-Rita. “We love the new location! The move gave us a chance to really reorganize our stock to give our customers more of what they want. We still carry many items which cannot be found anywhere else in the Tri-Cities area.”
