Welcome to Heritage Gifts & Gourmet

Heritage Gifts & Gourmet has long been a part of the charm of downtown Opelika, Alabama. Though primarily known for its delightful Christmas collectibles including Jim Shore and Dickens Village, the store also stocks unique gift items for any occasion. In the gourmet section of the store one can find a selection of locally roasted coffees, soup and dip mixes and other delectable goodies.

Our History

When the Open Door, operated by Lorraine Larson and located in the Carriage House of the Heritage House Bed and Breakfast on Second Avenue, closed its doors in 1994, Barbara Patton and her son Richard opened the Heritage House Gifts in that location and carried some of the same collectible lines as the former shop but added some gourmet items and a men's section.

Following the sale of the Bed and Breakfast to Steve and Carole Harrison in 2004, a building in historic downtown Opelika was purchased from the Brashers and the gift shop moved to its present location with a name change to Heritage Gifts & Gourmet.
