QUINCY, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The pandemic beginning in 2020 secluded many to their homes, giving people the opportunity to create new hobbies and crafts. For Calli McPherson, she used her extra time at home to start a new business that sells food items for those with Celiac disease or consumers interested in following a gluten-free diet.

William James Gifts in Quincy was made to source products, such as their gift baskets that feature items like brownie mix, cookies, salsas, and pretzels. All of which are gluten-free, McPherson said on William James Gift's website, "As someone with Celiac disease it was important to me that the food products I offered to be gluten-free."

McPherson spoke with WBZ's Jim MacKay about the store's selection, she said, "We carry McCrea's Caramels, which are made here in Boston, the Organic Living Superfoods brand, both their nut mixes and their dry strawberries, and mangoes- also a local small business." McPherson said that surprisingly their most popular item sold was the beef jerky.

William James Gifts began out of McPherson's home last year, but now has a physical store location on Hancock Street in Quincy.
