Teresa's Gifts formerly know as A Step Into the Past Antiques was owned and run by Teresa Turner. Teresa lost her battle with cancer in March 2018. Her only child John W. Leftwich, Jr. now owns and operates her business with his wife Caroline Leftwich.
The store is named after Teresa to pay tribute to her hard work and dedication to this unique location. Teresa was known for her generosity and giving gifts to everyone in town. Everyone in town has a personal story of a time Teresa gave them a gift or showed generosity. So it was fitting to name her former business Teresa's Gifts. Teresa had a special love for the sun and tanning by her swimming pool. Some photographs of Teresa are on display in the front entrance of the store.
Our mission at Teresa's Gifts and Tanning Salon is to provide customers with a large variety of gift options and provide high quality tanning services. We are proud supporters of the local community and welcome out of town folks, as we love meeting new people. Gifts range from $5 to $50 so anyone can find superior products to fit their personalized needs. Our tanning rooms are always clean with accommodations including a chair, mirror, coat rack, and a shelf for personal belongings.
Our team at Teresa's Gifts and Tanning Salon strive to focus on customer relationships and creating a fantastic experience for each and every customer every single time. Our passion is building customer relationships, just as Teresa did for many years.
