About Us

Golden Key is a family-owned business and offers a unique variety of gifts and home decor items such as: Hallmark, Isabel Bloom, TY, Willow Tree Angels, and Boyds Bears.

Golden Key started out in 1995 as an automobile dealership. In 1999, Terry and his wife Penny began a small gift shop and in 2007, they completely remodeled their building and now have 4000 square feet of shopping space. Suzzette’s Cabin Candles was acquired in 2014, moving candle production from Texas to Sterling, Illinois.

Some of the more popular items we carry are our handmade, hand-poured candles. We offer over 150 different scents of candles, ensuring that there is a scent that every customer will enjoy. Our scented candles are available in all sizes from tealights and tarts to large jar candles. Every month there is a "Candle of the Month," in which customers receive a discount on a certain scent of candle. We also offer a discount card for our frequent candle shoppers, in which customers purchase 12 candles and get one free.

We invite guests into our store as we would our home, with a homey, relaxed atmosphere. Plus, we offer free gift packaging, so your gifts are ready for giving. We travel around the country to find new products at affordable prices, with many being made in the USA.

We invite you to come into our store to find the perfect gift for that certain someone. For any occasion, we will be there to help you find what you desire.
