This family-owned jewelry store caterers to all levels of jewelry, they purchase estate jewelry, coins, and offer watch repairs.
Greg Glemser, one of the three partners in the business, started out in business spending summer’s working at a local Doylestown jewelry store. After receiving his education degree, Greg went to work as a teacher. Not long after his start as a teacher, he was laid off and went back to what he knew…jewelry. Now after 15 years, a gemology degree, a wife and 4 girls later…Greg, his brother-in-law Kyle, and sister-in-law Sabrina decided to open the Doylestown Gold Exchange.

A few months ago a specialty shop in Boston, MA, called Gifted, began carrying a few of our pieces. Gifted is owned by Marie Corcoran, a local artist whose shop carries her own work, as well as the work of over 70 other U.S. artists. We thought it would be nice to get to know more about Marie and her mission to support fellow artists:
SCJ: Tell us a little bit about you!
Marie: “I have a degree in ceramics and photography and make jewelry for the shop. I love finding new artists, puppies (or pretty much anything with fur), volunteerism-I’ve been to The Ukraine, Haiti twice, Mexico three times and places throughout the US, and frozen yogurt.”
SCJ: How did you come to start your business?
Marie: “I always knew I wanted a shop and was lucky enough that it came earlier in my life than I expected. There was a small retail space available with a short term lease, so I dove in. After 2 years there I grew beyond the walls of my tiny shop and found a much bigger location only two blocks away. After 8 years, I’m still amazed at the support of the neighborhood and my customers and the amount of talented artists there are.”
SCJ: What kind of image or style do you try to convey to customers?
Marie: “We treat our customers like family. I never want them to feel like they’re just a sales receipt to us. I don’t have a particular style, but I am attracted to anything that makes the store feel more homey. After all, I spend a lot of time there so it’s basically my home as well.”
SCJ: What is your daily inspiration?
Marie: “Seeing other business owners doing well and working hard motivates me. I love that our community is there to help one another and not compete. I’m also so grateful for the love and support of customers and other businesses in the area.”
SCJ: What are your future hopes/dreams for your business?
Marie: “I try hard to carry mostly handmade goods and dream of being able to eventually weed out all imported items (except for the fair trade artists of course). Just being able to open the doors to my very own store every day is beyond my wildest dreams.”
SCJ: What do you like about Sarah Cornwell Jewelry?
Marie: “It’s inspirational, classic and well made. Very beautiful and perfect statement pieces that can be worn every day.”
We hope you enjoyed getting to know a bit about Marie and Gifted! If you live in the Boston area or are passing through, definitely make sure to say hello! If you don’t live by, you can always take a peek at the shop’s website here.
Remember to shop local!

In the next couple of weeks we will be releasing our new Spring & Summer 2017 Collection! We’ve been busy with preparations and were lucky enough to hold our photo shoot at Doylestown Flowers & Gifts. This is a lovely boutique flower shop located just miles from our home studio, and we couldn’t have asked for a better location to shoot!
Doylestown Flowers & Gifts is owned and operated by Monica Andris and her daughter, Meghan Andris-Lindenmuth. They have been collaborating and growing the business for the past 6 years.
Monica credits her mother’s talent and her own passion for flowers as inspiration for getting involved in this venture. Her mother was a seamstress who made wedding gowns from a small bedroom in their home. It was that entrepreneurial spirit that sparked the initiative to jump on the opportunity to own her own flower shop. Meghan was a pre-school teacher previous to joining her mother in the business.
Together they have worked to create a boutique flower shop that aims to please those who have an appreciation for quality, care, and the use of premium, unique blooms. The shop services individual customers, as well as the wedding and event industry.
The two take pride and great care daily in choosing their blooms from the vast varieties available throughout the world, inspiring their creative flow. Meghan, as the shop’s wedding/event coordinator, says she enjoys making every couple feel her focus and passion for fulfilling their vision of their very special day.
The future hope of this team is all about continuing to expand and develop their particular style in their Bucks County hometown and throughout the tri-state area they currently serve.
SCJ has enjoyed working with these lovely ladies and vise versa:
“We appreciate Sarah’s entrepreneurial drive while remaining dedicated to her family. Sarah is a lovely person, and her designs have a simplistic beauty as well as versatility. The care with which each piece is designed and created is evident, and the result is beautiful,” said Meghan.
If you live in Bucks County or close by, make sure to stop by and say hello to Monica and Meghan at Doylestown Flowers & Gifts!
