Shop the Season: GraceOliver

GraceOliver saves the day! Our last minute shopper, Alexa scores the last few items on her list at The Holiday Shops.

It seems like Black Friday happened just yesterday, but nearly a month has passed, and there are only a few shopping days left until Christmas. Every year I promise myself that I will not be running all over the city to find gifts for all my family and close friends; however this year, with no exception, the space under my Christmas tree is looking a little bare.

Luckily, there is a bit of good news for the procrastinators like me. I stumbled upon GraceOliver and found some perfect items for those on my list. While shopping, Adam Scott, the designer of some of the pieces in the store and Rachel Quarta, welcomed me to their shop and told me the story and inspiration for some of the collections designed by Adam.  He introduced me to the HELIX line (pictured above at left), which was inspired by his mother’s illness as a way to be able to do at home some of the things she loves. Today, HELIX is made exclusively by homebound women in order to stay engaged and earn an income.

My best friend will be unwrapping this beautiful snowflake pendant, one of my favorite items in the shop and the owl earrings will soon be part of my own collection. This beautiful set goes for a little under 50 dollars. The crystals and stones on Silk Thread can definitely make anyone happy this Christmas, and the best thing about them is that you won't have to worry about seeing anyone else wearing the same design during your holiday party, since most pieces here are not only hand made, but one of a kind pieces.

GraceOliver has a large selection of jewelry pieces that can accommodate to almost any budget. I hope you like this little shop as much as I did. Good luck shopping!
