About the Gift Chick:
As a native New Yorker, Robin has always had a passion for fashion. Since her family’s business was in the garment center, it was natural that her career began in the fashion industry. She became a buyer, where she developed her trend-spotting, merchandising and negotiating skills. She perfected her skills as an account executive selling to reatil stores. Her 20 years of buying and selling experience helped her develop a keen sense for forecasting “hot items” at the right price, in the teen, junior, and women’s market.
When Robin married and had a son, she started to focus her attention on finding fun things for him to play with. As he got a little older, the “birthday party” scene began and so started her search for cool toys and unique gifts for her Son's friends; Robin loved the look on a child’s face when they REALLY loved their gift. Leaving the garment center behind to be home with her son, the searching and shopping continued. After a year, her husband told her to stop shopping or figure out how to shop for a living. The idea for Gotta Great Gift was born.
Robin focused on the children’s and teen market - selling fun gifts, apparel and camp items. She did this participating in fundraisers, charity and school events. Gotta Great Gift developed a “ niche” following with customers constantly asking how they could buy items throughout the year. Gotta Great Gift was launched in 2004 and the rest, as they say, is history...
So, Shop, Smile, Laugh and have fun!
Don’t forget - we are all “kids” at heart, never miss an opportunity to put a smile on someone’s face!
