Nielsens Gifts - An Original... One of a Kind!
Have you noticed when visiting another city that all the stores are the same ones you have in your home town? I remember when it was so much fun to shop in a special store unique to Chicago, a special one in Dallas, one only found in New York. Now all of those stores are in many cities-but they have lost their personality. The owners are not individuals, but big conglomerates. The stores have prestigious names, but many out source their work and are mere shadows of what made them famous. Big business was never Nielsens Gifts' goal. Nielsens loves knowing their wonderful customers in Tulsa and on the phone and on NielsensGifts.com. That is the way Nielsens' founders planned it.
Founded in 1946 at the edge of Tulsa, Oklahoma.
I have been thinking so much about my parents, Dorothy and Arthur Nielsen. They had a vision for their gift store 64 years ago. They did not want a chain of stores. They wanted only one very unique business. The store, Nielsens, started in a rental house in Tulsa. They lived in the back and sold their wedding gifts in the living room and my dad made lamps of customers lovely vases and figurines and my mom made the hand sewn silk lampshades. They wanted to bring beautiful decorative things to Tulsa from all over the world. Lovely things had not been easy to find during world war two. They began bringing china and decorative accessories to help fulfill peoples dream of peace and prosperity.
New merchandise comes in almost every day!
I worked all weekend in Nielsens Gifts cleaning and doing some new displays of Julia Knight Serveware and Lladro and Kinzig Design Lamps. We are excited to have Rosa Lladro visiting Nielsens on Oct. 16th. I got to thinking how much fun I was having and that there is not another store in the entire world with our exact mix of merchandise! Although the choices are now made by myself,my husband, my daughters, Doug, George, Rhonda, Sadie, other Nielsens' sales associates and by our customers-not by my parents, we still abide by Art and Dorothy's philosophy that Nielsens carry all price ranges of gifts and objects of art, but of only items of the highest quality!
