Lavender Goose, Peckville, was the small business spotlighted at the February 22 Lackawanna County Commissioners Meeting. Owned by Joyce Chowanec, the business specializes in gift baskets and flower arrangements. Lavender Goose began in 1989 as a home-based business and outgrew its first two locations before moving to 1536 Main Street site. Ms. Chowanec keeps up with the trends in specialty gifts by attending a variety of balloon and floral design classes. The company also does several fund raisers for the military, youth and animal shelters.
