Seasonably Chic Showcase

Review: Girls Night with Gild Collective


My girlfriends came across Gild Collective at a recent Cincy Chic event and wanted to try it out (and I’ve been wanting to do it ever since I found out about them, but I’ve been too lazy to coordinate it!)

So, quickly after that event, my friends were on it. They had picked a night to host the event, and were given a Gild website link we could go to, pay online (so you/a friend doesn’t have to track everyone’s payment down), and the site even let you personalize your craft… we were making nail/string states, so you could choose which state you wanted, and even change the color of the string. gild2

After we paid online and customized our craft supplies, all we had to do was wait for the event date and bring refreshments when the day finally rolled around. Didn’t have to go to hardware and craft stores. Didn’t have to lug all the supplies to the get-together. Just showed up with a bottle of wine and a smile (and a hammer)…. my kind of party. 😉

There was a Gild rep there, who showed us how to do the craft each step of the way and offered helpful pointers — we even commented later that the craft would have been a lot more confusing and frustrating without her. She was super friendly and funny, so she fit right in.

At the end of the night, each one of our crafts looked so unique and perfect for each of our personalities (so much better than those places you go and everyone’s art looks pretty much the same). And these are crafts that actually turn out to be great decor pieces that you want to have around your house.

So, if I had to rate the experience, it would definitely be an A. It’s more expensive than going out and buying all the items yourself, but you pay for the ease and convenience. And it’s probably still less expensive than if you’d buy the decor item in a store.

The site made it easy to pay, the Gild rep made the craft easy to make, and the item I made looks like something I would buy (not a look-what-I-made-in-art-class kind of craft)… Oh, and we had a LOT of fun in the process! Definitely recommend them! They’ll be doing mini crafts at the Seasonably Chic Showcase Nov. 7 at the Phoenix (Click here to RSVP – it’s free to attend – just bring a canned good!) if you’d like to learn more about them/sign up for your own craft night then!


Meet GILD Collective at Upcoming Events!

(l-r) Me, Jessie, Kelsey Pytlik and Rachel Bauer McCreary

A few weeks ago, I met my friend Jessie and her two new co-workers for lunch. Jessie recently left her corporate job to go into business with these two gals. They just got accepted into The Brandery (as the first female-led group, I might mention) a few months ago and have been going full speed ahead ever since!

We just did a big feature on their business, GILD Collective, here in Cincy Chic if you want to get the full story on them and see some examples of recent projects they’ve done. But their business concept in a nutshell is that you get a group of your friends together for a craft night. They provide the supplies and instructions, so you don’t need to be a Martha Stewart to host or attend a party. And everyone leaves with memories and a cute project made.

It’s not a party where someone is trying to sell you products the whole time, either. It’s a party where you unplug for a bit, connect with your friends instead, get creative, and take something cute home that you’ll proudly wear or display because you made it! Oh, and if you hosted the party, GILD gives you your craft kit for free! You can make anything from jewelry to home decor – all tres chic, on-trend, and not crummy-crafty-look-what-I-made-as-an-art-project looking.

The gals at GILD Collective will be at our upcoming “School’s Back, Mom Relax” Aug. 21 event if you’d like to meet them, and see some of their projects in person. Click here to learn about the event, and use the code GILD to get in FREE! Hope to see you there! But if you can’t make that event here are events on 8/22 and 8/30 if you’d like to attend those and meet the GILD gals! (They’re super fun, so you’ll be glad you did!)

Gild Collective has more than just jewelry project kits, there are also kits for home decor items to give your home a DIY-refresher.DIY project kits from Gild Collective allow you to tackle crafts you might not otherwise get around to doing.Give your jewelry a dedicated (and cute!) spot with a DIY holder.When hosting Gild Collective Parties, guests receive project kits with detailed instructions.
