ABOUT THE GEMMA SHOP:
The Gemma Shop is a curated women’s boutique that launched in May of 2016.
The name, Gemma, is Italian for gem. Each piece is like finding a special gem as they are bought with limited inventory and rarely restocked. We feel like the store is a hidden gem and special, thus the name!

The boutique started off as an online only business with pop-up shops around the Columbus, Ohio area. The pop-up shops would occupy empty lease spaces within specific communities for a short period time so customers could shop an online business in their neighborhood! The pop-up shop would feel like a little boutique oasis which would then disappear when the pop-up shop ended! We partnered with some amazing small businesses to allow the customer to have a truly unique experience. The response to these pop ups was WAY bigger than anticipated and it only felt natural to progress the business to become even more accessible to the customer.

In July 2017 we opened our first brick and mortar store in Uptown Westerville. Read all about the decision to expand here.
All pieces carried in the store are hand picked with YOU in mind! We carry women’s apparel, accessories, and giftables. The shop is owned and carefully curated by Lauren Williams who has a passion for retail as she was a corporate buyer for several years and has always had the aspiration to become a small business owner- you can read more about Lauren here.
