Deidre Joe-Copelend loves to put a smile on someone’s face. That’s why she opened her store on 13th Street called Mostly Balloons last Valentine’s Day. She said unlike party stores which rent party necessities like tables and chairs her focus - like the name of the store - is balloons. “My focus is balloons, not only for little ones but adults. I love to put a smile on everybody’s face,” she said recently while her family members were busy decorating for Halloween. “I love working with my family. They are very supportive” she said of her ex-husband Anthony, her daughter Antoinette and her friend’s daughter Heidi whom Joe-Copelend calls her daughter too. 

She and her daughter often drive around to local parks on weekends looking for parties and just dropping off a balloon at no charge depending on the occasion to put a smile on someone’s face. 

“I didn’t know anything about getting a business started. I just jumped in,” she said. Joe-Copelend, who is from the Bay Area, has lived in Imperial Beach for 26 years. Joe-Copelend has had a varied career. She worked for Macy’s in San Francisco, was a limo driver, an MTS city bus driver and party bus driver. “I always dreamed of owning my own business. It was supposed to be a candy store,” she said of Mostly Balloons. “I’m thinking of adding ice cream and candy.”

Joe-Copelend said she does a lot of baby showers and creates ballon sculptures that range from rattles to Minions, flowers and arches. Of course, she is a Raiders’ fan being from the Bay Area but creates balloon bouquets in the color of the Chargers in addition to other NFL teams.

“I love my customers. I love when people come in. I love meeting people more than my balloons. When customers come in, if I don’t have what they need I’ll look for it. I’m here to serve my community and make them happy,” she said. 

The store also carries banners, invitations, party favors, candles and more. And of course balloons for all occasions include mylar balloons of different sizes. 

Joe-Copelend customers come as far as East Lake and she has done balloons for parties in Los Angeles and a baby shower in Santee. Joe-Copelend said while other stores charge $1 extra for helium balloons she offers lower prices for her customers. “Feel free to come in and check us out,” she said.

She always gives extra balloons when she sells a bouquet because she knows sometimes a few pop when placed in the car. Half a dozen are $7.99, a dozen $12.99 with a 10 percent discount.

She likes to help her customers out. “I help them celebrate. I have four kids. When I was a single mom I didn’t always have money for the balloons,” she said.

Mostly Balloons, 1179 13th Street.  Hours: Tuesday through Friday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. she suggests her customers to order balloons the day prior. Call 619-373-4206.
