About Discover Balloons

Discover Balloons was formed in 1988 by Doug Grimes and Patty Lewis. Doug had been ballooning for 10 years and had noticed a lack of balloon related souvenirs at balloon events. Patty was working for an airline when the company was formed. The first seven years of the company consisted of sales at balloon events across America with 6-8 weeks devoted to the eastern states. 1995 was the year we made a big move from California to New Mexico to open a retail store and to be 1000 miles closer to out summer circuit of events which consisted of a lot of Southern states.

We began developing our own line of merchandise in 1990 as we found it difficult to find enough ballooning themed gift items to build a retail location. After years of experience and lots of trial and error, we think we have reformed our line to offer good quality and value products. We strive to maintain a fair price so we can share our love of balloons with others. Our personal balloons have changed to focus more on special shapes. We currently own and operate the Hummingbird, Planet Earth, Baby Polar Bear and operate the Fishbowl. We hope to meet you at a balloon event soon. Please stop by and say Hello. See you soon!
