The one-stop shop for all of Georgia's unique products
Georgia Crafted was born one evening back in May 2013 over a glass of wine and a great discussion about my passion for shopping local. Recognizing that most people love the idea of “shopping local”, but don’t necessarily know how to find true, local Georgia-made products.
What motivates your company?
Promoting local artisans from around Georgia. This is what Georgia Crafted is all about! Our goal is to help you not only shop local, but to help support small local artisans from around our great State!
Tell us about your location
We are based in Smyrna, GA. While we do not have a retail storefront (yet), we do offer the option for you to pick up your Georgia Crafted gift boxes at our location, which is right in the heart of downtown Smyrna.
Tell us a bit about your customers
Our customers are from all over the country, but primarily right here in Georgia. They are folks who love the concept of shopping local and are in need of a great gift, whether it’s for themselves or for a friend, loved one or client.
Share the history of your company
Georgia Crafted was born one evening back in May 2013 over a glass of wine and a great discussion about my passion for shopping local. Recognizing that most people love the idea of “shopping local”, but don’t necessarily know how to find true, local Georgia-made products, we came up with the Georgia Crafted “monthly subscription box” service and officially launched in September 2013. We curate anything from food to bath/body products, home goods and more.
Nearly five years later, we now offer a number of themed gift boxes (for those who need a gift and need it fast) and an online store with over 150 Georgia-made products.
If you are looking for corporate gifts, this is our niche and would love to partner with you! We will work within YOUR budget, make product recommendations based on your budget and your clientele and handle the fulfillment and shipping.
We think shopping at Georgia Crafted is truly a fun and great experience and have no doubt you will agree!
How are you involved with your customers and community?
I am the face of the company and the one who will answer your emails and possibly shoot you a text with any questions/updates we may have about your order. I’m also the one who is more than likely helping to pack your order.
With the community, I am located in Cobb County and you will most likely find me at a Cobb Chamber of Commerce event helping volunteer.
Tell us about your employees
Georgia Crafted has been so lucky to hire several local Moms from around the Smyrna area. I primarily work when my two little ones (currently aged 6 and 8) are at school, and thought it would be awesome to have local Moms help as well, knowing they may want a gig that fits their “Mom” schedule! It has been a win-win for everyone, and let me tell you…Moms can get stuff done!!
We also have hired an incredible Social Media Brand Manager, a very recent KSU Summa Cum Laude graduate. Lexi is the voice behind all of our social media and we honestly don’t know what we would do without her!
What makes you excited to work here?
This is my baby. Well, besides the ones I gave actual birth to…so, what wouldn’t excite me? In all seriousness, I LOVE what I do. Anyone who meets me knows how passionate I am about Georgia products and the artisans we work with
What do you like about your community and location?
We have been in Smyrna (Cobb County) for 12 years and absolutely love this area. We live right in the heart of Smyrna and have seen the town grow tremendously over the past decade. Our children are at a phenomenal Episcopal school, which we are thrilled about. In addition, we have the Cobb Chamber in our backyard, which has been the biggest asset to Georgia Crafted in the past few years.
How do you embody Authentic Georgia?
I am Authentic Georgia. I live and breathe these Georgia products and am always looking for ways to help promote small local artisans from around our State. The best part is if you buy just one Georgia Crafted box that contains 4-5 products, you just helped support 4-5 (technically 6 if you count us) small local businesses from around Georgia. You cannot beat it.
What makes Georgia Crafted so special and unique?
We are truly the only one stop (online) shop for Georgia products. We have tremendous relationships with the artisans we partner with and are the go-to gift company for so many companies around Georgia. We consider ourselves experts on the products we carry. Not only do we put together the best gifts, we offer the best customer service you can ask for!
