Meet the Owner, Lois Pruitt
Welcome to The Frederick Basket Co. I am proud to say I am happy to serve Frederick County, and surrounding areas with gifts filled with smiles. Delivering a special gift is truly the best part of this small business. I am fortunate to be able to connect with many businesses during their gifting, speaking with individuals who need help with a special moment, the one-on-one interaction is the best reward.
I haven't always been in this industry, while I do come from an entrepreneurial family, the majority of my career was in the publishing industry. As business models changed, I was faced with re-inventing myself, and I knew I wanted to be in a local business within my hometown.
Frederick has been my home for most of my adult time, and where I raised my family. Along with my husband, Matt, our two sons, and my sweet puppy milo.
Frederick has changed over the year and has grown into an amazing town filled with shops, restaurants, art galleries, museums and other cultural offerings. Spend a weekend getaway in our amazing town, and visit us in Everedy Square.
Whether you are looking for 200 employee gifts for a virtual sales meeting, or a custom gift for your Mom, I hope you will connect with us and entrust us with your gifting needs.
