Lavender Goose in Peckville was the small business spotlighted at a recent 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 its current 1536 Main St. site. The company also does several fund raisers for the military, youth and animal shelters.
