I couldn’t be more excited to celebrate 1 year of business!!! THANK YOU all for supporting the business, making it out to pop up shops, and shopping online!!! Thank you for letting Gemma be a part of your lives!! I love seeing everyone’s posts wearing Gemma and how you all outfit your gems!
When I started this business 1 year ago, I never thought it would be where it is today. I initially created the business to have a huge online focus and the pop up shops would be a way to get people to learn about the brand. I never thought that the 1st pop up in Old Worthington would be as successful as it was! I couldn’t believe it when I nearly sold out of everything. I knew I had to keep this going! The Gemma Shop has moved around the Columbus area going to Old Worthington, Worthington, Powell, Dublin, Westerville and Downtown Columbus. I focused all of the pop up shops in the heart of communities where the pop up would be surrounded by other small businesses! I have partnered with some wonderful small businesses along the way which is an even greater experience to the customer. I love giving people a reason to come to a pop up to not only see Gemma but to visit the surrounding small businesses as well!
It has also been a great year for supporting charities and sponsoring some amazing women! I have met so many wonderful people making the world a better place! During this year from a personal stand point, my little family expanded and welcomed our sweet baby boy Vincent. We are now a family of 5 and things couldn’t be crazier! It has been a blast and has completed tested my multi-tasking abilities (as I hold a baby while typing).
I have loved every moment since day 1 and I can’t wait to see where the business is next year! There is a lot of growth planned this year including the search for the perfect store location! Yes, friends, a brick and mortar!!! The assortment will continue to expand as well as the site continues to improve so don’t hesitate to let me know what you would love to see from Gemma!! For now, enjoy 20% off for a limited time because I love you!!!
