Sparkle Gifts and Whatnotsby Chamber Staff on October 1, 2023
Sparkle Gifts and Whatnots is a local boutique filled with whatnots, specialty gifts and a mini fridge always stocked with sparkling water. Located in the heart of Downtown Renton, Sparkle carries a wide variety of gifts including curated items from local artists and businesses, Seahawks gear, holiday decor, inspirational wall art and always unique goodies. The store is owned and operated by Richelle Haas, a Washington native and 22-year Renton resident, who opened her store in 2017.
“When people come into my store, I want them to leave happier than when they entered. And it’s not if they buy something, it’s just a place they can come, grab a sparkling beverage out of the fridge, and just exhale for a little bit.”
Sparkle is always adding new inventory, so each time you visit there’s always something new to see and a fun shopping experience to be had. With a little something for everyone, Sparkle makes it easy to find the perfect, thoughtful gift for the special people in your life. And, gift wrapping is always included - so you can head right out to spread the glitter and shine on those you love.
Her story is an outward expression of her personal journey to becoming the person she is today. It’s a long and winding one, full of amazing experiences, growth, and transformation. She burns brightly. This personal journey is one she would like to share with you – whether it's through her boutique, hand-crafted gifts for loved ones, trading stories with you about becoming your highest, best version of yourself, or supporting each other in this community during challenging times.
You can find Richelle sparkling in her store, usually on time, singing throughout the day, and always building people up. You might even catch her in her pink roller-skates when she’s feeling it. Richelle lives in the Renton community and wants to partner with you to build it and make it better, one day at a time. Be part of her journey.
