Introducing - Purple Dragonfly Boutique’s BLOG!

Purple Dragonfly Boutique has a blog and it’s going to be just as fun and sassy as shopping in the store. In this inaugural post, customers will read information that may not be common knowledge. For example, do you know how Gayle and Rebecca met? Do you know why they started Purple Dragonfly Boutique? Do you know that the store was the first to carry certain product lines in this area?  Do you know that two of these lines are still on the shelves today almost ten years later? Do you know the secret to their success?  Well, these are some of the tid bits of information you will find in the first (of many) blog posts.  So, grab a drink, get comfy and read on to hear the story.


Gayle and Rebecca met the first day of school while taking their children to Pathways Elementary here in Ormond Beach, Florida.  As any parent of an elementary school child knows, you buy a lot of teacher’s gifts. A LOT!  Finding a gift locally and one that the poor teacher would not get 30 of just became too difficult and time consuming.  The problem was solved with the start of Purple Dragonfly!  Gayle and Rebecca were tired of going out of the area to do any serious shopping for teachers, Mother’s Day, birthday’s etc. and realized a shop catering to women just like them needed to be opened right here in Ormond Beach.


Today the store is not just selling affordable, creative gifts for women. They have home accents, apparel, jewelry, gifts for Dad, Grandparents, weddings…all occasions and people – the list is endless.  Here are a few examples of the chic, fun & stylish products you can find at Purple Dragonfly:



Fitflop –Caffeine for your feet. One of the first in the USA to launch the line 10 years ago.

Luca & Danni– jewelry, with a cause and made in the USA.

Spartina –Fashion forward handbags, wallets, keychains.

Tribal Sportswear – Women’s Clothing, fabulous fit and feel

Kameleon – Sterling jewelry that is as unique as their store, and exclusive to Purple Dragonfly for 10 years.

Nora Fleming –Serving pieces for all occasions.

The most important service Gayle and Rebecca provide that separates Purple Dragonfly Boutique from other shops is their magical connection with the community.  For example, you walk into the store and says, “I am here for a girlfriend/wedding/birthday gift and I am short on time. HELP please!”. Rebecca, Gayle or one of Ladies on staff are ready to make suggestions and very likely one of them knows the person you need a gift for.  They are great at thinking outside of the box, pointing out different and unique items to fit the description of the person you are shopping for.  The gift is then beautifully wrapped and ready in minutes.  This is the magic of shopping at Purple Dragonfly Boutique. A local business that provides fun, sassy and affordable gifts with a touch of exceptional customer service.

Gayle and Rebecca have always been great, as well as, their staff. I always feel welcome and they have been so supportive of the work that I do, as well as, asking about my family and always interacting with my three year old, Sam, who they have watched grow up.
I could not ask for a better place to shop!!!

Thanks to the Purple Dragonfly I am a Fit Flop addict. My feet and I thank you tremendously. I have been able to find unique and marvelous gifts for family and friends there often. Friends have purchased gifts for me there as well; every one of them a treasure. Customer Service in the PD is a model that every store should strive for. Everyone should check out one of the PD's anniversary parties, what fun they have!!
