I've always enjoyed gift giving and finding just the right gift for family and friends. My love of giving, meeting new people, traveling to new places, whimsy, elegance, style and grace have helped inspire my vision in creating Victorian Inspirations.
The shop is not necessarily related to Victorian gifts or traditions but it refers to the style, elegance and class of a bygone era.
After 40 plus years in the auto industry, most recently as the Chief Financial Officer/Financial Analyst for several very large dealership groups, I decided to semi-retire. Having always wanted to open a small boutique or elegant gift shop, I decided that timing in life is everything and now was the time to reach for the stars to bring my vision to life.
Please enjoy browsing the website (or perhaps visiting the shop in Portland, Ct). I hope that you find just the right gift for the "home, heart, body & soul" that will inspire you to follow your dreams, embrace your life or put a smile on someone's face.
