About Nifty Things!
It started out as an idea…Create a Gift Store unlike any other where shoppers are exposed to products that they have never seen before and all have a certain “wow factor”. That is how the Nifty Things! concept was born.
In 2005 Doug and Martee Hickman moved from Metropolitan Detroit to the northern woods of “Up North” Michigan. Both had worked in Corporate America for most of their careers and had extensive retail and food service credentials.
