Our History:

Windfall Gallery came to life in 1984 as the vision of Kaye Baluarte.  It is one of the anchor stores on the cobblestone-lined streets of the Chestnut Hill neighborhood in Philadelphia, PA and continues to be the first place people think of when they need the perfect "little gift".

After 30-years of running a successful business, Kaye decided it was time to retire in January, 2014.  That is when the current owner, Cynthia Fillmore took over.  Coming from a family of artists, Cynthia has always had a love and appreciation for beautiful handmade items. From the time she was a little girl, she enjoyed creating her own pieces, but never pursued it as a full-time career. Instead, she got her degree in Broadcast Communications from Temple University and worked in Television Production.
After her third pregnancy, she decided to leave the exciting world of Television and enter the crazy world of full-time motherhood. Missing her creative outlet, Cynthia searched for something to do on a part-time basis while still being able to devote her time and attention to her three little girls.  This search lead her to Windfall Gallery in Chestnut Hill.

After meeting Kaye, she knew she found a new home. Cynthia worked for Kaye and apprenticed under her guidance for eight years.  In January, 2014, Windfall Gallery officially became Cynthia's newest baby.

Windfall Gallery is Cynthia's passion and dream come true. She loves supporting artists, both local and international, and introducing their beautiful, unique work to her customers.
