OOH LA LA. Established in 1993, Ooh La La was an expansion idea from CREATIVE TOUCH GALLERY. Operated by Cathi Olson, the company began as a kitchen store. As business grew, Cathi was joined by Jane Kaesbauer.

Ooh La La, located at 3460 Hillcrest Road, evolved into a full home décor store with items for every room. Complementing Creative Touch with its accessories and custom floral arrangements, Ooh La La offered gift items for baby, bridal and birthdays. Cathi Olson created the company's signature bow that was used on all the company's packages and baskets.
