PRESTONSBURG – Daffodils Boutique, located in the heart of beautiful downtown Prestonsburg offers a truly one-of-a-kind personal shopping experience. In their boutique, you will find a relaxed shopping experience that will “bloom with style.”


Daffodils is operated by Kindra Horne Baker, who was recently named “Business Person of the Year” by the Floyd County Chamber of Commerce for her dedication and service to the area.


That dedication extends to an annual 5K - each year Daffodils hosts a 5K and donates the proceeds to different local charities. This year, Daffodils hosted an Autism Awareness 5K with all of the proceeds going to benefit the Highlands Center for Autism, raising $3,275.00 and garnering 143 registrants.


“We are truly grateful for the donation and Kindra’s generosity,” says Dr. Shelli Deskins, Program Director, Highlands Center for Autism. “


Highlands Center for Autism is the first center-based program in Kentucky exclusively using ABA, a science based on the principles of learning used to make improvements in socially significant behaviors, such as communication, social skills, academics, and adaptive skills. ABA also relies on objective data to make decisions about treatment.
