BIG news, Grommet fan: Grommet isn’t going away after all!
That’s right — we’re thrilled to announce that Grommet has been saved by our friends at GiddyUp (more on that in a moment)!
This means the Grommet you know and love is coming back to life (with two exciting twists) and we couldn’t be more thrilled!
If you’ve been following us since 2008, you know that we’ve always been the place for the not-so-commonplace. The place where you’ve found wonderful things that make you wonder how you ever got by without them.
Grommet is, and will continue to be, the place where you discover innovative products you’ve never seen before that make unique gifts and easily support inventors and small businesses.
Our purpose remains to help inventors and shoppers connect in a meaningful way — that hasn’t changed and it never will!
However, the way we share those products is about to get a lot better.
Here’s what’s happening:
First, we’re keeping our retail store closed… and we’re launching the world’s best newsletter for discovering new products and innovations!
This is an exciting development for everyone here at Grommet, and we can’t wait for you to see what we have planned for you.
Our goal is to make these the most useful and interesting emails for fun, curious folks like you. In addition to showing new and innovative products (along with great discounts!), we’ll also share where the ideas came from, where they’re made, how they work, and more! It will also be packed with inspiring stories from makers, helpful life hacks, and even insights into innovative technology that will soon make a positive impact on your everyday life.
Second, you’ll now play an even bigger role in uplifting small businesses by purchasing directly from the makers we feature in the Grommet newsletter.
So, if the store is gone… how are you going to get your hands on all the ingenious products we’re about to share with you?!
Simple: You’ll purchase them directly from the makers themselves!
This new model will help their small business grow in a meaningful way and creates a direct relationship between you and the maker for product questions, feedback, updates and more! No middleman also means you’ll get better deals, better prices, better support and lower shipping costs. It’s a big win-win!
So from now on, whenever we feature a product, you’ll be sent directly to the maker’s shop instead of ours.
That’s all you need to know for now… we’ll see you in your inbox soon!
We’re thrilled about this new chapter for Grommet and our millions of fans.
We’re still the same Grommet at heart. Over the past 14 years, we’ve learned some things about what you really want when it comes to unique, innovative products made by local makers and creators… and we can’t wait for you to see what we have in store for you over the next few months and beyond!
