Now, a little about us.
Our business is named after a Clipper Ship, the Flying Cloud that was the fastest ship in its time. She sailed on June 2nd to August 31st, 1851 from New York to San Francisco for a total of 89 days and 21 hours under the command of Captain Josiah Perkens Cressey. On July 31st, she made 374 miles in 24 hours. April 28th through August 12th 1853, the Flying Cloud sailed from New York to San Francisco in 105 days. Passed the Equator on May 15 in the record time of 17 days from Sandy Hook. Finally in June of 1875 the Flying Cloud was stripped for her copper and precious metal fastenings and is a part of history.
Flying Cloud Gifts is a second-generation family owned business, which began on top of Green Mountain near Astoria, Oregon on our Flying Cloud Christmas Tree Farm. In our humble beginning we converted a horse stables into a gift shop in 1993, establishing our retail business with the help of our dear friends Larry and Irene Hreha. A year to follow with success, we launched our Internet Company. We mainly sold wreaths and other handmade goods starting out and have since evolved into what it is today sending packages all over the U.S. and worldwide. Recently, Guiding Light of CBS purchased curtain rods for their stage set.
A few years ago, Flying Cloud Gifts moved its home to the foot of the beautiful mountains of the Eagle Cap Wilderness in Enterprise, Oregon.
Honesty, integrity and most importantly, our commitment to personalized customer service are the Flying Cloud Gifts trademark. We offer products we would appreciate ourselves, and we guarantee them.
Now you have found us we're really glad you are here. God Bless America for this is the only place a dream can be built like this. Thanks for stopping&.God Bless you and your loved ones throughout the year.
