My name is Lori Greene, and ten years ago, I created, developed and built an award winning, simply awesome lifestyle & gift store. And what an experience it was for me, unlike anything I could have ever imagined. I learned volumes, met people that have impacted my life more than I could have dreamed, and got to see my hopes and ambitions unfold around me.
Times changed, and life happened. There are so many twists, turns, stories that end in laughter, and of course, stories that end in tears. Those stories are for another day. I will fast forward to July 2017, when I was attending the Atlanta trade show with my bestie, who had recently opened her own new age inspirational shop. I was lamenting that things had not turned out quite the way that I had expected them to, and that I was at a crossroad. I found myself trying to decide whether or not to remain open for one last Christmas season, or to call it a day and shutter the doors.
We had some good heart to heart talks, and she got me to get out of my own way, to think differently, and to imagine that I could adapt, morph and change again in order to move forward with my dream. By the end of the trip, I knew what I had to do and where I had to go.
And so Gifted was born. In this boutique style shop, you will find classic jewelry along side trendy pieces that you just have to have. You will find stylish and usefully designed handbags and totes. You will see accessories to add to the already fabulous wardrobe that you have built. You will find things that make you laugh, and things that tug at your heartstrings. You will find that special something for a baby shower, a bridal shower, or any occasion that calls for a little something special. I have chosen and assembled a very special collection of items, with the hope that when you enter this little jewel box of a shop, you will find something that speaks to you, something that beckons you to take it home.
Gifted. It was a very special name. We all have a Gift. We are all Gifted in our own way. I want to share my Gift with you, the Gift of living beautifully, the Gift of spreading joy to the people that we hold dear, the Gift of being good to yourself. I invite you to shop Gifted.
