WHO WE ARE
Hometown Gift & Decor is a specially curated boutique where you will find high-quality home décor, modern baby clothing, hand-crafted jewelry, and thoughtful gifts that are as fun to give as they are to receive. Located on the corner of Main and Burnet Street, Hometown is direct across the street from the gorgeous Woodbine Mansion and around the corner from the new Round Rock public library.
Hometown began with husband and wife, Freddy and Jessica Duarte, and an inspired business idea in 2020. This dream became a reality when a historical home, located at 400 East Main Street came on the market. Built-in 1927, once home to Round Rock’s only physician, Dr. D.B. Gregg, this home exudes charm and nostalgia. Fast forward to the turn of the century, John Avery from the Avery Ranch family occupied the property, practicing law until 2021. Freddy and Jessica were blessed to have the opportunity to purchase this historical landmark. The Duarte family has called Round Rock their hometown since 1980 and watched it grow from a small town to a thriving city. In 2021, Jessica along with friends and fellow mompreneurs; Amber Markee and Celise Ketch, created Hometown Gift & Décor.

Being a boutique store, we carry a select number of items, carefully chosen in limited quantities. From your baby’s outfit to your home decor, our intent is to offer original and unique finds. It’s our goal to provide you with a fun shopping experience in a fresh and comfortable environment. We offer ready-to-go gifts for those last-minute occasions.
