Sara – Owner & Curator
I was born and raised in New York and graduated from Indiana University. I spent nearly a decade in business planning and development at some of the most luxurious retail companies in the world (Barneys, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, and Cartier), just to name (drop) a few.
As I was expecting my first child (a beautiful boy, Max) I struggled with how I could maintain a career and have the time to care for my son. Having my own business was always a dream of mine and while on a business trip, it hit me. I traveled a lot for work and for weddings and always loved tearing into the Welcome Bags. I mean, who doesn’t?! So I thought to combine my many years of retail experience with gift giving in order to bring more of a high-end quality and representation to the classic gift bag. 10+ years and a baby girl, a new (and incredible) husband and (awesome) stepson later… I can tell you this – it’s been a lot of work and a lot of fun!
Since the beginning of the Pandemic, we have made some adjustments to our product line. We are now very proud to say we offer highly customizable gift boxes for very special events. The world has changed and so have we! But, we are still doing what we love best and are so happy to keep doing so.
