About Us

I have 24 years experience in the gift industry, which started while I was still in college. While selling fine china & crystal in 1988, I fell in love with quality, handmade products from Ireland. I opened my own store in 1989, which was The Irish Crystal Company of Middleburg, Virginia. In 1997, we expanded the offerings at my store to include mouth blown, hand painted ornaments from Poland & Italy. Through the years, I enjoyed working with my family, meeting new customers, & making new friends from around the country & overseas. My experiences at the Irish Crystal Company included working with different companies, golf tournaments, and individuals finding the best gifts & awards possible for their events and special occasions.

I decided to take a break & closed my store to stay home to be a mom in 2004. I always enjoyed selling crystal, china, & Christmas ornaments and missed the excitement & fun of working with my customers. During the spring of 2013, I decided to launch TheGiftMerchant.com.

My focus now is selling on the internet to provide my customers with the best possible products & service. I have beautiful quality gifts for every occasion whether it is a new baby, new home, birthday or wedding. We have an extensive collection of the most current tea ware on the market. The collection of ornaments that can be found on TheGiftMerchant.com is spectacular! Some of our ornaments may be personalized. If you have a special event that you need a quantity of gifts, Christopher Radko, Joy to the World Collectibles, & Coton Colors all have customization programs for their ornament lines. I would love to work with you to create your own custom ornament for your event.

I am here to help you if you have any questions about any of the fine products I sell or if you need some assistance with your order. My motto is that I treat my customers the way that I would want to be treated. I strive to make my customers happy & keep them coming back.
