|About Us||| Print ||
Since 1991, Accents et cetera has been creating fabulous gift baskets. After over ten years in the same location (next to Ashleigh's Attic, Redmond Vacuum and Victor's Coffee Shop) in downtown Redmond, we have moved to a larger space. We have a retail store and workshop in Sammamish as well as this online store to better serve you seven days a week.
Susan Huenefeld has been the owner and manager since 2001. In 2005 and 2006, Accents et cetera was selected as one of the top 50 American gift basket businesses by Gift Basket Review Magazine. Additionally, we received two design awards from the magazine. Rave Reviews magazine selected Accents et cetera as a top 100 gift basket business in 2007. Since 2008, we have received the "Best Workplaces for Recycling and Waste Reduction" award from King County.
We are a woman-owned family business. Our vendors are mostly small, local businesses, which means we have many products that are not available elsewhere. We taste and try out everything, so we carry what we know is good. We appreciate food that is healthy and delicious. We also prefer generous sizes, so that the gift basket has enough food for your gift recipients to enjoy.
We donate a significant amount of money, time, gift baskets, and food to local charities, including Hopelink, St Thomas Church, 24-hour Relay, Lake Washington Schools Foundation, Assistance League, Children's Hospital, Habitat for Humanity, and many, many churches, schools and other organizations. Please call us if you are interested in having an Accents et cetera fundraiser for your favorite organization.
We are members of the Sammamish Chamber of Commerce and Women Business Owners.
We look forward to meeting you!
Susan Huenefeld and staff
We have so many customers who send us notes of appreciation. Below are excerpts from just a few. We would love to hear from you...what did we do well and what can we improve?

"I just wanted to pass on a very special thank you...Not only was Susan able to piece together all the necessities for the die hard running enthusiast, she found a literal library of reading material and managed to send this all out in record time...I have no doubt (the candidate) will be accepting his offer...and your hard work at Accents et cetera had a large part to do with this result..."
