About Me

My name is Marianne Gregersen, and I was raised in Chicopee, Massachusetts.  My original career lasted 27 years, in the field of signs and outdoor advertising. I have designed logos and signs for large corporations, worked with neon, LED lighting, worked with elevations and site plans to create directional signage for traffic flow, planned and designed the electrical for the interiors of signs as well and the masonry bases and footings for installation. I managed a production department of 5 men in printing, graphics application, painting and CNC routing.  

I have always loved painting and drawing, the outdoors, beaches and forests, flea markets and barnsales. I began collecting rocks as soon as I could walk and today I tend to stop everywhere I go to pick up stones, flat rocks, driftwood, and wildflowers. I fell in love with vintage jewelry in 2005 when I was blessed with some of my grandmother's costume jewelry from the 1930's-40's. I only had to hold it in my hand and I was bit by the bug. Similar to how I discovered my love for gardening. Both inspired by or inherited from my grandmother, Isabelle Paquette. 

 I have been in the retail gift shop business for the past 5 years. I started out in Northampton, Mass and eventually found my way to Easthampton, where I have settled in a beautiful space in the Cultural District on Cottage St, just below Mt. Tom.
My love for crystals and minerals has grown exponentially over the last 5 years. I love both the geology and the metaphysical aspects. I have mined all over Massachusetts and New York, including off the beaten path in Western Mass.
