About Us

LOVE IS AT THE HEART OF OUR BUSINESS

Barton’s Flowers and Gifts opened under the ownership of Jan and Cheryl Barton in August, 1982 as a small three room flower and gift shop.  Having a strong foundation in Christian beliefs, Jan and Cheryl knew that they had the hope and desire to grow their business.  Within two years of opening in 1982, Jan acquired the nine room store front located at 311 South 2nd Avenue, and has served the Elizabeth community for nearly 40 years. 

Jan and Cheryl not only grew their business, but their family as well. The Bartons were blessed with four children. Tyler, Corrine, Hillary, and Hailey, who were proud to be a part of their family business. 

In 2013, with the love and support of their father and mother, twin daughters, Hillary and Hailey made the decision to expand the family business once more. Using their education and skills from their studies of Art Education and Family & Consumer Sciences at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, their dreams of owning a bakery became a reality by combining their attributes 

with the family’s floral & gift shop.

Today, Hillary and Hailey’s complete assortment of cookies, cakes, cupcakes, donuts, pastries, pies, and seasonal confections, stay true to their traditional family recipes.  Whether each baked good is moist and delicious, soft and chewy, rich and creamy or sweet and flaky, we have a treat to satisfy any sweet tooth!

Barton’s Flowers & Bake Shop is nothing sort of unique. From Hailey's signature thumbprint cookies to Hillary’s four layer Torte Cakes, everyone is wowed with the display of flavors that stay tried and true to tradition, like Toasted Almond French Cream, Carrot Cake, Red Devils Food & German Chocolate. Barton’s signature Black Raspberry torte is most popular, but the bakeshop also offers contemporary combinations such as, Cookies and Cream, Mint Chocolate Chip & Peanut Butter Fudge. 

 

Barton's cut-out sugar cookies are not only eye appealing and tasty, but are custom, handmade decorated and designed. These works of art are tailored for celebrations for any occasion. It is not hard to see that everyone at Barton’s Flowers & Bake Shop want to show our community that “love is at the heart of our business”.
