Susie Overton, founder and owner of Gracious Gifts, has more than 25 years’ experience in the retail and gift industries. She built a loyal Colorado clientele participating in boutique shows throughout the Denver Metro Area since 2002, offering items such as pocket cases, ornaments, unique bag tags, friendship balls, tea items and silver serving pieces. True to Susie’s innovative approach to packaging, is each gift was wrapped and ready to give in a cellophane bag tied with fabric ribbon and other decorative touches.
Gracious giving and a concierge’s attention to detail require more than mere shopping skills, however. Susie Overton brings a wealth of knowledge to her unique company. Prior to establishing Gracious Gifts in 2001, Susie worked as a buyer and divisional merchandise manager for May D&F Department Stores, where she excelled in fashion event planning, business planning and product development. In addition, Susie managed the marketing department for a bridal photography studio and served as an administrator for two investment counseling firms. She consulted for several non-profit organizations, providing merchandising, marketing and event planning for fundraisers. Susie’s rare combination of professionalism, taste and expertise in merchandise selection give her the edge when it comes to canvassing the markets to locate the best product and value.
