About Golden Key Gifts

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

Golden Key started out in 1995 as an automobile dealership. In 1998, Terry and his wife Penny began a small gift shop, and in 2005, 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.


One of the more popular items they carry are:  handmade, hand-poured candles. Offering more than 100 different scents of candles, ensuring that there is a scent that every customer will enjoy. Our scented candles are available in all sizes, from tarts to two size jar candles. 

We showcase a specific scent and call it the Candle of the Month. Our customers will receive a discount on this featured candle. We also offer a discount card for our frequent candle shoppers, in which customers purchase 12 candles and get one free.


Guests are invited into the store as they would welcome anyone into their home, with a warm and relaxed atmosphere. Plus, free gift packaging, so your gifts are ready for giving.  Terry & Penny travel around the country to find new products at affordable prices, with many being made in the USA.

You are invited to come into Golden Key to find the perfect gift for that certain someone. For any occasion, we will be there to help you find what you are looking for.
