Creating Sapphire Center
Sapphire Center opened in 2012, though the owner Claire had been working with crystals, rocks and gemstones for many years prior. She felt guided by her Spirit to own a shop and opened Sapphire Center on the coast in South Lincoln City due to the wonderful people and healing energies. Back in 2018 Claire fulfilled one of her goals to expand her once tiny space into what you see today.
Claire finds the stones, crystals and other minerals we sell at the Sapphire Center at a variety of gem, mineral and jewelry shows across United States. She has established a great rapport with the different miners she deals with, and knows the quality of their crystals.
Here at Sapphire center we are all about fun and happiness. We have a wonderful rock game for the kids to play with - you get to guess which rocks / stones are which and if you get them all correct we give you a little rock to take home! We also have children’s books, dinosaurs, fairies, dragons, furry bones, and so much more!
When it comes to the unique draw of the Sapphire Center, happiness is the top priority. We genuinely want to make people happy. We are not worried about how many people buy what in the course of a day and we don’t try to pressure our customers on sales.
We want you to come in, feel good, share a laugh with you, and give you a hug if you need one. If you buy something that makes you feel good along the way, fantastic, but if you left with just a smile, then we have done our job!
Open to New Ideas
Claire spent time in the Air Force and during her station at Okinawa, Japan, she immersed herself in local Asian-influenced culture. Those experiences and many more have guided Claire to be the woman she is today and to follow her dreams.
To this day Claire is still learning and growing, both in her business and personal life. She asks the customers to give her ideas of what they would like to see in the store. It helps her see different perspectives and to continue to find products that encompass the variety of people who come to the store.
Claire herself performs readings. During her sessions Claire reads her clients’ energy field and reaches out to loved ones on the other side, their spirit guides. The goal is to help the person answer questions, help give them some insight into what is going on in their lives, and help them heal. Healing means letting them let go of grief, pain, or a subconscious belief system that no longer serves their highest good.
We have grown so much in the years since Sapphire Center opened in September 2012, thank you all for making it happen. Without all of you Sapphire Center would not be able to provide a larger selection of products and expand our children’s section within the store.
