Thanks for stopping by! Here’s the glee gifts story!!
Way back when, two women by the names of Ann and Nadine, started a ritual with one another where they exchanged a "friendship ball". The silver ball--an old English tradition--was used once upon a time by gals to pass a special favor back and forth between friends and family. It was meant to be exchanged throughout the years as a gift—a special recipe or a humble favor was usually gifted back then. Ann and Nadine thought this was a cool way to give each other gifts, however, the gifts they gave to each other were very different from the English tradition; they varied from the season's newest color in fingernail polish to a funky tee-shirt to whimsical wine glasses. It was always a hunt for THE special gift to give one another.
The tradition between the women lasted a few years,,,,,,and wanting to do something new in their professional lives, the women decided to go into business together. They wanted to establish a business that would combine their vast experience, talents, and skills; one that allowed the women to be creative and make a happy difference in people's lives—and that is when they came up with the idea of opening a special gift store where one could come and find THE special gift for a special occasion. After many Bloody Mary’s in Ann’s kitchen, glee gifts was born.
The original store opened on Main Street in Mansfield in April of 2005. Two years later, in 2007, Nadine decided to leave the business to pursue different professional interests. It was at that time that glee gifts moved to Mansfield Crossing,,,,a dream come true! We were a very busy store, with lots of foot traffic, a wonderful staff and many many fabulous customers. We were known for our green and purple gift wrap,(free of charge), unique gifts, and the gift of conversation with our customers. Once in the store, customers many times would have to peruse the store a couple of times and it was always a compliment when our eclectic selection of merchandise generated a "giggle".
In 2016 glee gifts pivoted from a "brick and mortar" to a "wheels and mortar". Yes, I closed the the storefront and opened a boutique on wheels.
