What's the skinny on The Great Gift and Paper Co.--
The Great Gift and Paper Co. is an eclectic mix of home goods, personal care, stationery, baby gifts, and jewelry. A spin-off of sorts of my brick and mortar store, La Belle Maison, The Great Gift and Paper Co. takes the ten years of the tried and true and mixes it with a new generation of fresh and fun. Click around. I'm sure you will love it all. It's all about life's little luxuries*perfect for sharing--with a twist.
But wait, wasn't this Susabelle Boutique before?
Yes, The Great Gift and Paper Co. was originally named as an homage to my mom-- when my mom, Sisina Rosa Lucia, first came to America, my aunt Sandy nicknamed her "Sue". Then my godmother, Elizabeth, would call her Susabelle for fun. I love them all dearly and that name is reminscent of my wonderful childhood growing up in an Italian-American home. My mom makes everything that she touches a little more beautiful than when she found it. My mom is my hero. Her courage and guidance inspire me. But, after careful consideration, I wanted to refocus Susabelle to be more focused on made in the USA products than our current site aesthetic allowed. I am currently in the process of recreating Susabelle from top to bottom. New look, new site, and a re-newed focus on Made in the USA is in the works.

What makes The Great Gift and Paper Co. different?
I'm glad you asked because I go to great lengths to find high quality merchandise at reasonable prices. If it isn't something I would like to receive or that I would give as a gift to a personal friend, then it won't be on the site. And if you are searching for mass produced merchandise, then you are definitely in the wrong place. But, if you are looking for that special little accessory for the side table or those adorable handmade earrings that your bridesmaid will forever cherish, then by George, you have come to the right place! We truly appreciate your business. Thank You!
