The Shelburne Gift Company originally began as Arabesque, a lovely gift, stationery and home decor boutique in the charming village of Shelburne, Vermont. We opened our doors in 2000 in an intimate space on Falls Road, and six years later, grew into a larger space just around the corner on Shelburne Road.
In 2008, Arabesque was purchased by Tracy Stolese, a longtime Burlington business professional with a delight for helping people find beautiful gifts and decorative items for their homes. Two years later, she had the opportunity to purchase Ink. Ink. Fine Stationery, a well-known Shelburne paperie located around the corner from Arabesque.
In 2018, looking for more flexibility in her work schedule, Tracy decided to transition away from a retail storefront into a studio setting that would allow her to work one-on-one with wedding and corporate clients. She found a delightful location just down the road, and the change to the Shelburne Gift Company was complete! She now works in a beautiful studio along with trusted mascot Shelby.
In addition to continuing to carry personalized gifts on a special order basis, we're taking our gift repertoire in a new direction! We will now be offering curated gift boxes, welcome bags and hospitality baskets for weddings and events, and custom gift design for corporate clients. We continue to offer a full-service stationery division featuring an extensive collection of invitations for weddings, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, showers and celebrations of all types, as well as a lovely collection of personalized stationery and specialty items. We also have an in-house printing system which allows us to design and produce a wide variety of items -- from stationery and invitations to tags, sticker and labels -- right on site.
We hope to have the opportunity to be at your service soon!
