I have recently re-modeled the Greenbriar Gift Baskets website, and have changed my approach to marketing to be more in line with the times and also to highlight the essential core of my message. In terms of gift giving, a gift tailored to the recipient will always have more of an impact. This is important in both business marketing and personal giving.
Greenbriar Gift Baskets has always stressed customization and I have finally realized that it's silly to come up with page after page of "stock" designs for every occasion. I want to build the best gift for YOUR recipient/occasion, not to compete with a catalog on or offline! Our new website design includes a page of past "everyday" designs and a page of past holiday designs produced by Greenbriar Gift Baskets. In some cases I can produce a design that is very close but not in others. The pictures are there to inspire you to help me produce new designs to fit your needs.
In promoting the gift baskets I have neglected to mention items that can work as gifts on their own, not just as part of a themed gift design. I design and make my own jewelry line and specialty candles as well as buying small gift items at wholesale. I intend to put some of those up for sale here from time to time.
I also intend to feature some themed gift arrangements. These will often be limited editions as they tend to be the result of a container or other component of the design being on sale or giving me the inspiration for a design I just had to make. This page and one that I link to from the Greenbriar Facebook page that is not in the regular navigation are the only pages that contain items for sale and links to my shopping cart. Custom orders will be handled by phone and email.
Come On Spring!
Well, the weather conditions here in Central Mass and that in many other parts of the country are pretty wintry and nasty. Most of us are starting to long for those first little green sprouts of Spring. It seems like a good time to introduce a gift arrangement with an herbal theme.
The container is an enameled metal pitcher covered in little images of herbs. I am offering this gift at a sale price because I was able to pick up a few of these for less than the usual wholesale price when a vendor was closing its doors. The contents include nut and fruit snacks, chocolate wafer cookies, Italian cheese crisps, two packages of good chocolate, a metal bangle bracelet with magnets, and to top it all off there's a mini growing kit complete with pot, potting media, and herb seeds so the recipient can start Spring early on a sunny windowsill.
This type of gift arrangement would normally sell for $45.00, so don't delay. Grab yours now!

Designed to keep her feeling warm and loved, this gift contains a gorgeous Pashmina scarf (really, it's more of a wrap as its much longer and wider than the average scarf(, a pair of one-size-fits-most ladies' fleece gloves, a knit headwarmer, a pair of fancy boot socks, a pair of garnet and gold-filled earrings, and, to add the finishing touch, there's a box of excellent chocolates so she won't miss out on a sweet treat either! These items are placed in a delicate fern basket, then wrapped and topped with a beautiful bow.
Now that you know what's included, we're sure you'll agree that this gift basket is a real deal at only $60.00. Wouldn't it make a great birthday gift or even a "just because" gift for your favorite lady while the Winter marches on?

I recently tried to describe these socks as a component of one of my Valentine's gifts, then realized that I should be offering them as "stand-alone" items as well. Here you are ladies -- in case you'd like to just pick up a pair for yourself or a friend or relative. Please remember that if you are in our general area (Millbury, MA) you need only choose the pick-up option if checking out on our website and/or call 508 864-5079 to arrange a contact-less pick-up and avoid shipping/delivery charges.
Sterling Silver Earrings
I recently came across a storage box full of jewelry that I had made several years ago. Most of my jewelry is made from sterling silver or gold-filled wire, sheet, and findings along with semi-precious stone, shell, and glass. (I personally hate plasic "jewelry".) I am sure that these are the best deals in town because I'm almost giving them away! As always, custom orders are encouraged. In some cases I already have the same design made up with different stones, for instance, amethyst or black onyx instead of garnet. Please contact us with any questions or to discuss a custom design.
Here's the first set -- buy one pair for $8.00 or take all three for just $16.00!

Sterling Silver Earrings II
We're going a bit up-market here so the prices are higher due to higher priced stones and-or higher end findings such as lever-back earrings instead of plain hooks. This set is priced at $18.00 per pair or all three for $45.00.

Not everyone is a fan of silver, so here's another set of three pairs of earrings with gold-filled findings. For those of you who don't know the definition of "gold-filled", it means that 1/20th of the metal must be gold. Gold plating can be super thin and can wear off in a hurry. That's why I much prefer to use gold-filled.<

Jewelry Polishing Cloths
My newest customer reminded me about these. They work very well and I formerly sold lots of them but when I discontinued/merged my second website with this one, I forgot about them. They are particularly good when cleaning silver jewelry with stones that would be damaged by liquid silver cleaners. One word of caution though, since the jeweler's rouge that does the work is red, be very careful when working around pearls and other light colored porous jewels to avoid staining.
Here are the two sizes that we carry.

The smaller jewelry polishing cloth is 6 inches by 8 inches instead of the 9.75 by 10 inches of its larger cousin. $4.50 Add To Cart
Masks - The New Essential Items
I recently purchased an assortment of cloth masks as they have become essential items. These washable cloth masks are cotton lined and have an inner pocket for an additional filter, should you choose to add one. The adjustable ear loops are particularly helpful if you also wear glasses or hearing aids.

Our shopping cart will calculate the shipping using USPS and UPS rates. We now offer two new "shipping" options for Massachusetts. If you are in our local delivery area you may choose a flat rate delivery/shipping option. We will hand deliver if it can be done safely, ie we will be happy to call the recipient and arrange to leave the item by the door but we will no longer navigate the halls of office buildings or high rise apartment buildings. If there is no arrangement to leave gifts for tenants at a safe place, we will ship the item via USPS instead. The second new option is Free Pick-Up in Millbury, MA. If you are a local customer and would like to save on shipping please choose this option and call or email us (email@example.com, 508 864-5079) or we will contact you to make an appointment for a contactless pick-up.
Our shopping cart payment options are Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and Paypal. If you would prefer to order off-line, we accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. Please call 508 864-5079 or print out and mail in our Order Form along with your cashier's check or Postal Money Order.Review Cart
