Boling also is a licensed real estate agent with EXIT Real Estate Professionals Network here in Farragut, a notary public and is even ordained to officiate weddings.
And Nov. 1, Boling opened Urban Home & Gifts, which shares space with Knox Graphics & Designs in Stonecrest shopping center, 10965 Kingston Pike, just in time for the holidays.
“We think you are sure to find that special gift or décor item that will make lasting memories,” Boling said.
With Christmas just around the corner, Urban Home & Gifts has savings of 40 percent off everyday items and 50 percent off all holiday items, he said.
“You’ll discover a treasure trove of unique gifts with new selections arriving weekly,” he added.
Customers can browse through the store’s selection of gifts and décor items, which blends with almost any of today’s decorating styles, as well as the shop’s designer-inspired jewelry, Voluspa candles and scrumptious gourmet items such as truffles or the award winning raspberry jalapeño jam, which is all natural and gluten free, Boling said.
And while carrying such items as hand towels or throws and even hats, Boling said they can be personalized in-store, as the proximity to Knox Graphics
& Designs allows him to offer monogramming, embroidery and direct to garment printing services to make those gifts special.
Boling, who started his entrepreneur endeavors at age 16, has combined more than 18 years of business experience
“Jesse just enjoys people,” Sue Boling, Jesse’s mother, said. “He wanted to offer them the products and incorporate some of the items he has with his business, Knox Graphics & Designs.”
Knox Graphics & Designs has catalogs customers can peruse or go online to find that special gift to personalize, his mother, Sue Boling, said.
