If you are looking for that cute, neighborhood gift shop, then Pink Olive is the place for you! Don’t research more, and just go visit one of their locations!
New York City is know for the myriad of creatives spread through out the 5 Boroughs. The list of names with these artists is extensive and we love meeting them!
One of the names you should keep in mind, is Grace Kang. She started her successful career as a fashion buyer and worked for the biggest retailers like Saks, Bloomingdale’s and Barney’s. But, her childhood passion for stationary eventually came back in full force. So, after receiving awards as “Buyer of the Year”, Grace was read for her next challenge.
Moreover, she opened her first Pink Olive store in 2007, in the East Village. Today, she has other 4 location: East Village, in Manhattan, 2 in Brooklyn in Williamsburg and Park Slope and a last location upstate NY in Cold Spring.
Through out this journey, Grace extended her business. She created Olive School that focuses in empowering other artists to build a strong brand and work to make their product ‘retail ready’. In addition, she also launched OliveBox – a monthly subscription service directed to the paper-lovers out there.
Pink Olive is a great place to buy every thing from baby gifts, distinctive letterpress cards, handmade jewelry, to original artwork, books and fabulous vintage finds.
“Pink Olive is more than an ordinary gift shop. It’s a creative place with a mission to inspire giving and beautiful living. Let your imagination sparkle!”
In fact, her team has “the eye” it takes to make the brand and the store stand out! So, you will definitely find the perfect gift for every occasion – baby showers, birthdays, pregnancy, love, marriage, holidays, and the “just because” moments!
Similarly, if you’re not NYC-based or if you don’t have time to go to one of Pink Olive’s neighborhood gift shop, but need something specific, you can purchase online!
Plus, if you decide to pass by the Williamsburg store, you can grab a delicious coffee at Freehold after!
In the East Village, we love Hi Collar, and in the West Village, try a charming secret spot called The Elk. And still, close to the Park Slope location, grab a coffee and a chocolate at The Chocolate Room.
Now, if you decide to explore Cold Spring, in upstate New York, let our experts help you out and plan the perfect weekend! On the other hand, for arrangements for Corporate Trips, we can also assist you and your team.
