One day last week while shopping for a closing gift for some very sweet clients, I stopped in at Rountree's located at 79 Rountree Circle on 19/129, about 5 miles north of Blairsville. The owners, John & Laurel Boisonault are old friends of mine and actually purchased the business with my assistance years ago.

Not only did I find the perfect gift, but I bought some awesome items for my own home.
