The Finishing Touch started more than forty years ago here in Wichita Falls, Texas.
James Wetherbee needed a source of supplemental income to take care of his young family. So he took his $900 in savings and drove his un-air-conditioned pickup to Mexico, hoping to purchase clay pots and wrought iron pieces. When he returned, he sold his wares at abandoned gas stations in the evenings after work.
Every weekend, James brought new, exciting purchases from Mexico. Soon, his business grew to the point where he needed a permanent building. James opened the Finishing Touch in a small space just off of Seymour Highway. At first, he planned to keep his day job and work at his new store evenings and weekends. But his current employer made him choose…and he chose his fledgling business.
James continued to bring in his own inventory from Mexico, eventually broadening his offerings to include all kinds of gifts, home décor, and more.
Within a few years, Finishing Touch outgrew its space, and James moved the store to its current location on Rhea Road.
His goal has always been to find the most unique, special gifts in Texoma, so that we can provide the perfect gift for everyone! From signs to crosses, jewelry to candles, birthday gifts to wedding gifts, the Finishing Touch has it all.
In 2013, James’s younger son, Brad, bought the store. Brad has been working at the Finishing Touch since he was seven years old…and he and his wife, Brie, are thrilled to carry on the family business into the next generation.
The past year has been filled with exciting challenges and opportunities. We have completely remodeled the store, added a fashion boutique, toy shop and play area, and full shoe store—all inside the Finishing Touch itself.
Brad, Brie, and their daughters Abby and Emme love our customers and the relationships we’ve built over the years. Texoma is home…and the Finishing Touch will continue to serve this community for generations to come!
