los angeles 2001-2003
In 2001 I decided that I wanted to open a brick and mortar store to feature the i golfini della nonna line as well as other products for young children. We found the perfect spot, a 1500 sq ft storefront at 7938 W 3rd Street in the Beverly Grove area of Los Angeles. I approached this new venture as an experiment allowing me the opportunity to be in direct contact with our ultimate customer while also managing my wholesale business on site.
In 2002 we were voted “Best Children’s Store” by Los Angeles Magazine.
