Jan and Steve Osterkamp
At Monarch Gift Shop, we believe beauty inspires authentic, joyful living. This is why we are so passionate about helping our customers to find gifts and products that feel inspiring and help you to create a beautiful mind, body, spirit, and home. Back in 2001, owners Jan and Steve Osterkamp had a dream of opening an inspirational gift shop with small-town values of community and service along with products that are unique, uplifting and beautiful. They have lived and loved and learned through the years as they refined their dream and fine-tuned the store into the enchanting atmosphere you find when you walk through the door. Jan and Steve travel to the best gift markets in the country and handpick one-of-a-kind jewelry, vibrant and colorful home decor and bath, body and home products that make you feel both nurtured and delighted. Monarch has continued and grown as a family-run business throughout the years. Daughter, Amy Peterson, manages the store and you will likely see her smiling face if you stop in...she loves to help customers find the perfect gift. You will also find their other daughter, Gina Brodtmann, managing inventory and websites behind the scenes. Amy's husband, Duane, can be found changing light bulbs or demonstrating the latest kitchen gadgets at their sister store, The Measuring Cup, located down the street. Family and connection are a huge part of our vibe and values as we work together, alongside our incredible staff and wonderful customers to create something truly beautiful for our community. We are grateful you are here and we feel blessed to be a part of your journey.
