SeeGifts: From High Quality Fashion Jewelry to Pet Supplies

SeeGifts began 21 years ago and was one of the original businesses of our two original locations: Walnut Creek Amish Flea Market and the Hartville MarketPlace and Flea Market.  In 1995 we opened our first location in Holmes County Amish Flea Market and soon expanded to our second location at the Hartville MarketPlace in 2002.  The business originally began with selling 14kt bonded gold and bonded rhodium jewelry; a high quality fashion jewelry with a lifetime replacement guarantee.  We custom fit our jewelry so you have a perfect fitted anklet or bracelet.  To capture the men’s interest, we added medieval swords, katana swords, daggers and knives.

The next product line we added was a local, Ohio based company making all natural cream and lotions.  These products do not contain parabens, petroleum, propylene glycol, silicones or sulfates.  In this product you will find some of the most effective, luxurious, handmade, natural personal care products available.  From proprietary herbal remedies, pain cream, luscious body and facial care, to gentle, soothing essentials for babies, you will find that our products are like nothing you have tried before.

When Ohio passed the Conceal Carry Law, it was time to expand our swords and knives to firearms.  We have been a licensed Federal Firearm ship for the past 12 years as we sell, trade, consign and buy firearms.  We sell all major manufacturers.  We will also offer quotes on any firearm you are interested in.  Never handled a firearm? We will work with you.

Our last major product line added was the SeeGifts Paws Boutique for the 4 legged family members; featuring Ohio Handmade pet clothing and a variety of pet supplies. Our pet clothing can be custom made for a perfect fit for your pet, without extra charge.  We also have gourmet gluten-free, preservative-free handmade dog treats that are a must to take home.

Stop in, our shop has so much more for everyone! Our jewelry, creams, pet clothing, pet shampoos, pet mineral supplements, holsters, therapeutic magnet jewelry, wooden magnets and handmade knives are all USA made.  Our customer service will not be outdone.  We are a one-stop shop! Come in and experience our store at #294!

How to Help Birds in the Winter: Advice from Wing & A Prayer

Contrary to what some people think, birds need our help in the winter when it is cold and the snow stays on the ground for weeks. You may ask how do they eat or how can we help; below is a guide to assist you in answering these questions.  Information is provided by Tom Schultz, owner of Wing & A Prayer, inside the Hartville MarketPlace & Flea Market.  Check out his shop (#81) for a large selection of bird food, houses, and other accessories for your winged friends.

1. Providing Food

  • Check your bird food mix to see if it contains grit, which is necessary for digestion.  If the birds do not get any grit they can starve, or even freeze to death.  Food provides necessary warmth for them during the winter.


2. Water

  • Make sure there is an ample water supply at all times.


3.  Egg Shells

  • Egg shells are very important before nesting time.  Save your egg shells and crush them to add to your bird food. (Especially in the months of January-April.) Doing this will provide calcium to help make harder shells on their own eggs.


4. Birdhouses and Roosting Pockets

  • Make sure to provide plenty of birdhouses and roosting pockets for the birds.  These provide extra protection from the winter elements.  When purchasing a bird house try to stay away from houses that are all metal.  If the house has a metal roof only, make sure it has space for ventilation at the top and the bottom.  Entrance holes need to be appropriate sizes for the birds you wish to attract.  ALL holes should be at least 2 1/2 inches from the bottom of the house.  Stay away from houses that are glued together.


5. Bird Feeders

  • We do not recommend wooden feeders.  A few years ago there was an epidemic that was linked to wooden feeders, and thousands of birds died due to the virus.  All feeders must be kept clean as food can get wet and stuck in the feeders which causes harmful mold to form.

About HRM Enterprises

From its 1939 beginning as a livestock auction started by Howard’s father, Sol Miller, to the present-day group of companies that include the Hartville MarketPlace and Flea Market, Hartville Kitchen, Hartville Hardware, Hartville Collectibles, Hartville Kitchen Salad Dressing, Top Advantage Surfaces and Hartville Tool, HRM Enterprises has always been a family-owned and oriented business. 

The business had a very humble beginning, as Sol Miller purchased a two-acre plot on the corner of Market and Edison streets for $400. Sol then utilized the help of many in the community – as well as lumber cut from his father’s farm – to construct a 40-foot-by-80-foot sale barn for less than $1,000. The first sale was held on October 30, 1939, and the total of all livestock sold that day came to $535.

A lunch stand was opened on the second floor of the barn, operated by Sol’s wife, Soloma. The auction grew and prospered, with additions in 1942 and 1947. The mid-40s also marked the beginning of the sale of produce and eggs. Around this time also marked the beginning of the flea market, as Sol started renting spaces to others to sell their merchandise.

In 1952, a grocery store and service station were added. In 1958, upon Sol’s death, his son, Howard Miller, began operating the business for his mother, Soloma. Along with Moses Yoder, Howard began leasing the business from his mother the following year. The grocery was changed to a dry goods and variety store in 1962,which was open until 1966 when he opened the Country Kitchen restaurant in its place. Later in 1966, as Hartville evolved from a rural farm community to a fast-growing suburban area, the livestock auction was closed. In 1976, the egg and produce auction was closed. The next year saw the beginning of another new venture, as the company began to sell its salad dressing to stores across the area.

The new Hartville Kitchen was opened at its present location in 1995, which seats about 400 people in the dining room and 500 in the banquet room.

Howard Miller passed away on May 27, 2001. The name of the parent company was changed from Hartville Auction to HRM Enterprises in his memory. Howard’s son-in-law, Marion Coblentz, began running the flea market in 1980 and saw Howard’s vision to fruition with the opening of the MarketPlace on September 5, 2002. Marion still runs the MarketPlace today. Howard Miller Jr. has been the head of HRM since his father’s passing. A brother, several sisters and their spouses and 13 third-generation family members have helped continue to make the businesses successful.

The Many Benefits Of Goat Milk

Blog Header

Today’s blog post is s guest post from Kathy Jeffers, owner of Pheasant View Dairy Goats, located in the South Wing of the Hartville MarketPlace. Pheasant View Dairy Goats was established in 2007. They always had the dream of starting their own farm and they then wanted to start a business along with it. They began with two dairy goats and their herd is now up to 25 (and still growing!).

Goats may be cute and friendly, but they are also very useful. Female goats produce a creamy milk, rich in vitamins and minerals. It is very beneficial to your body, both inside and out. Listed below are many of the benefits of using this high protein, calcium rich milk.

glass-of-milk-000005523842large-21 (3)

One of the things you can do with goat’s milk is make soaps and lotions. It is a pure natural product with no additives or preservatives in it. It contains lactic acid which strips away dead skin cells and nourishes the new skin underneath. The PH level in the milk is very close to the PH in your body, making it easier to absorb into your skin. The result is a moisturizer that does not wash off and is continually working. Some of the things that goat’s milk can do is help fight acne and also aid in the reduction of wrinkles, just to list a few.

Drinking goat’s milk is just as beneficial. Goat’s milk is closest to human’s milk, making it easier to digest. It is rich in calcium and helps boost the immune system. It has high levels of proteins and essential amino acids.

Whatever the reason for using goat milk you will enjoy the results you receive.
