Way back when, two women by the names of Ann and Nadine, started a ritual with one another where they exchanged a "friendship ball". The silver ball--an old English tradition--was used once upon a time by gals to pass a special favor back and forth between friends and family. It was meant to be exchanged throughout the years as a gift—a special recipe or a humble favor was usually gifted back then. Ann and Nadine thought this was a cool way to give each other gifts, however, the gifts they gave to each other were very different from the English tradition; they varied from the season's newest color in fingernail polish to a funky tee-shirt to whimsical wine glasses. It was always a hunt for THE special gift to give one another.
The tradition between the women lasted a few years....and wanting to do something new in their professional lives, the women decided to go into business together. They wanted to establish a business that would combine their vast experience, talents, and skills; one that allowed the women to be creative and make a happy difference in people's lives—and that is when they came up with the idea of opening a special gift store where one could come and find THE special gift for a special occasion.
After many Bloody Mary’s in Ann’s kitchen, glee gifts was born. The original store opened on Main Street in Mansfield in April of 2005. Fast forward a few more years to present day and now the store is located at 280 School St. in Mansfield Crossing. Although Nadine decided to leave the business in 2007 to pursue other professional interests, Ann is still dedicated to finding a fabulous array of whimsical, sexy and trendsetting merchandise for you to give, get and enjoy for years to come.
