Gramercy & Co. - A Luxury Online Boutique
Fri, 11/09/2012 - 4:26pm | by monicadear
I'm happy to announce the launch of one of my favorite projects: Gramercy & Co.
Over the years, I've had the chance to travel and meet people in places like Rome, Burkina Faso, Egypt, and Peru. I love the ability to connect with others, and this, combined with my appreciation of beautiful, unique, and finely-crafted objects, has encouraged me to start, with my main founder Pui Shiau, a luxury marketplace where we can share the best that the world has to offer.
When I turned 13, my grandmother in the Philippines had her jeweler create me a pair of handwrought filigree gold earrings, embedded with miniature pearls, to celebrate me becoming a dalaga, or young woman. Today, in our world of big box marketers and mass-produced factory goods, is it possible to find a unique, handmade gift like that? Is it possible to forge a connection between someone skilled in their craft, in a faraway place like Bangkok or Mexico City, and our very own dear family and friends? I believe so.
We've created our luxury online "modern atelier" to serve all your gift-giving needs, offering stellar creations from craftspeople and dedicated artisans around the world, direct to your doorstep.
We believe that we make a difference with every dollar/pound/yen/peso/dirham spent, and that when we support each other and women around the world, we create a new type of economy -- one that we can believe in --- one where we support each other. We've created this website to be a member community, dedicated to respect, to collaboration, and to honoring your creative opinions.
I invite you to join me in becoming a member here: http://www.gramercyandco.com/mylogin
By joining us, you have the ability to shop our unique collection of gifts, vote on new potential products, earn points through participating on the site, learn stories of our artisans, and connect with other like-minded women. If you know someone who would like to carry her products in our store, please join us.
During the holiday season, as I reflect with gratitude on the important people and places in my life, I invite you to join us, as a shopper ---- as well as someone with an interest in the heritage we are given, the beauty and diversity in our world today, and the legacy we pass on to the next generation.
Gramercy & Co.
