Meet and Greet with Lofty Pearls
By: Danielle Wasserman
Holy Bananas! Have you been to Lofty Pearls yet? Saturday December 12th I was introduced to the Lofty Pearls Fine Linens & Gifts shop. Joyce, the owner was a pleasure to meet with: extremely down to earth and very knowledgeable of the gifts she sells. When I first learned of Loft Pearls, I didn’t realize the full meaning of the title of her store; it stands for “stretching to reach something ordinary and beautiful.” Her beautiful items are picked with care from Europe. She was emphasizing the quality of European items versus your traditional items from stores like Bed Bath & Beyond.
The bridal gift which stood out the most was the Fiesole by Ginori dinnerware, these were to die for. This beautiful tableware is trimmed with 14 karat gold with the option of embedding the bride’s family crest, their home, or anything that resembles their family tradition.
Some other amazing gifts available are Italian linens and beautiful Halo Flutes, which are trimmed with a 18 karat gold design and tastefully packaged in a rich wooden case.
If you are on a smaller budget, Joyce hand monograms beautiful handkerchiefs, bath linens, and robes. Joyce really goes the extra mile to personalize client’s gifts. Based on the bride’s personality, this will determine what font and design she will choose for the monogram.
Lofty Pearls is the store you want to bring your mother or mother-in-law to when creating your registry. Trust me Joyce’s items are more than your typical cookie cutter items; these souvenirs are heirloom quality that your mother would totally appreciate.So say you need a gift for a friend getting married. Your first thought is that you don’t want to go to the same “Box Store” that every other bride is registered at because you think she deserves better. Well, you’re in luck because Joyce agrees. She never wants a bride to have the same gift as another bride. To make this happen, Joyce investigates the bride’s registry from other stores to get inspiration of the bride’s taste of merchandise. When you are shopping from your friend’s registry here you’ll leave knowing that your friend will be receiving an original beautiful gift that cannot be replicated.
The process for a bride to get registered at Lofty Pearls is quite simple. The whole registration process can be done online at www.LoftyPearls.com. The first step is to register as a New Member to Lofty Pearls. This step will create a customized profile for Lofty Pearls to get to know the bride’s wants and needs. The site is very user friendly and Joyce is only a phone call away to answer any questions and or concerns. I know everyone these days is into the convenience of hopping on your computer and getting what your need with one click. But, don’t sell yourself short by not visiting the store in person to touch and feel at will.
