FINDERS KEEPERS was opened on November 1, 2010 on 8th and Montrose streets in Historic Downtown Clermont. Owner, Pat Matson, who retired after 30 years in the corporate business world, decided she could finally follow her dream of owning her own small business. Not exactly sure what Finders Keepers would be, today it has evolved into a Unique Gift, Home Décor, and gently used Furniture boutique.
Customers enjoy the unique items they can purchase at FINDERS KEEPERS and appreciate the ever turning inventory with new items being introduced daily. According to Pat, “finding the treasures and merchandising them is what she loves to do. Selling is just something I have to do to stay in business,” she laughs.
Having expanded twice in the past 4 years, Pat attributes her success to her husband, Bob’s, support and the assistance of her “baby girl”, as she refers to her, Jennifer Silva. “Jen is really the salesperson, she is a real go getter and is always here for me. We are all a great team that makes FINDERS KEEPERS the success that it is.”
Whether you are looking for a birthday or wedding gift, something funny to give to someone, or great furniture for your home, FINDERS KEEPERS is where you will find it. Open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. you will be greeted by the smiles of either Pat or Jen and usually on Sundays both will be in the boutique. Stop in and say Hi, you never know what you may find.
Pat and her husband Bob Matson have lived in Clermont for the past 11 years and have 4 children and 8 grandchildren. When not working they love to travel and are getting ready for a three week Norway trip in July. Not t o worry FINDERS KEEPERS will be open in the capable hands of Jen. To be sure therewill be a huge sale when momma is gone.
