Thoughtful giving

Gift giving is personal and you should not be rushed by last minute holiday shopping.

Let Eco Galleria help you find thoughtful, meaningful gifts to give to everyone on your list.  And, if you start early, we will have plenty of time to find just the right gifts that show you care.  And there is still time to order personalized items.  Schedule a personal shopping night where I can give you all my attention with no lines or waiting  (in person or by phone).

At the very least, early shopping will make the whole experience a lot less stressful!
 
Here are some new in store arrivals:
Blessing Bands - Inspired by a passage in the Book of Deuteronomy, these bracelets continue the ancient tradition of wearing words of faith.  They are intentionally bright with a focus word at your wrist and a related quote on the interior - a mantra with a message!  The kids blessing bands all read "Be kind, be brave and know that you are loved."  And, they will do custom personalized bands as well.

Eco Galleria has moved

If you are not on our email list, you may not know that as of mid January we have moved to 792 Kinderkamack Rd. in River Edge NJ - not far from our prior location.  We think that this will be a much better location for us with more visibility, a great display window, more foot traffic and a municipal lot with free parking diagonally across the street from us on River Edge Rd.  We are also between two other women-centric businesses (Make An Impression and Sole Revival Reflexology) which should provide some synergy.  Although we loved the charm of the train station building, it was just too far from any other business and only had foot traffic during the morning and evening commuter rushes - unfortunately when people are commuting they come just in time for the  morning train and want to get home ASAP with the evening train.

 

We hope to see everyone at the new location - lots of great gifts, jewelry and accessories arriving weekly now.

Book Signing Saturday, October 12th

After a brief respite in August, this month we have resumed our outdoor Trunk Shows  at the Station featuring local artists.

                                                                             

On Saturday, October 12th,  from 10am to 4pm, we are doing our first book signing for Oradell resident  Chris Campanioni to celebrate the publishing of his first book "Going Down".
Chris was born in Manhattan and raised in New Jersey. He is also a journalist and model, and winner of the 2013 Academy of American Poets Prize for poetry from his collection, In Conversation." Going Down", his debut novel, is the first in a trilogy that explores communication and language, commodities and media, tourism and terrorism. 

Campanioni's work has been published and reprinted in the Star-Ledger, the San Francisco Chronicle, the Bergen Record, the Herald News, The Brooklyn Rail, and other literary magazines. He has also worked as an actor with a number of recurring roles on All My Children and One Life to Live, and has been a guest on The Today Show and The View. He holds a Bachelor of Arts from Lehigh University and a Master of Arts from Fordham University, and he teaches English literature and creative writing at the City University of New York.

So, we invite you to join us on October 12th to meet this wonderful young man and  and buy his book.

We will add to our events page as additional trunk shows and book signings are added to our calendar.

 

We hope to see you here at the train station!  Support these great local artists who live and work in our community.

Custom Gift Baskets and More


Many looks, many price points...we design custom gifts!

Just a reminder that we have helped thousands of people solve their gifting problems for over 16 years.

From our custom made Memory Boxes to our "Announcement" Pillows and many  other unique personalized  gifts, we are certain to provide exactly what you need.

Eco designs custom gift baskets, so the choices, prices and contents are endless.  You won't see "standard" baskets on our website because each is one-of-a-kind.  You decide the theme, what you want to spend and how involved you want to be in the process.  If you want us to choose the contents and only indicate a price point, that's fine.  Each basket is made 
to order.  The gift basket photos on our website are just samples of those we have designed for others so you 
can't "point and click" but the trade off is a truly personalized gift for the recipient and that uniqueness 
does not go unnoticed! 

So, whatever your need, we will listen and help you to give the perfect gift!  

And remember, we specialize in Made in the USA!

I Love You Monster Trunk Show at Eco Galleria at the Train Station Saturday July 13th

It is Summer and we have resumed our outdoor  Trunk Shows at the Station featuring local artists.

On Saturday, July 13th,  we are pleased to have the return of Antarctica Black and her I Love You Monsters.  If you missed her show last year she is an artist from Washington Township with a special story.  It goes something like this...


One day, Antarctica Black decided she needed to give her parents something special. Like REALLY special. She was in her 4th year away at college and thought, "hmmm...I should give my parents something they can hug so maybe they won't miss me so much," and to her sewing machine she went! Out came two monsters, Mama's Boy and Chest-Bump. "How can I make sure my parents really know I love them?" Antarctica asked herself and then, "Pouf!" "I'll let the monsters do ALL the talking!"

Now, if you like that story, great. It's not true. These monsters were stowaways on Antarctica's spaceship. AND there were only a few at first, but you know how monsters can get a little frisky! (especially those "I love you too buddies"!) Anyway, they arrived peacefully and FULL OF LOVE and they just can't wait to share it with you! 

So, we invite you to join us on July 13th to meet this wonderful young woman and her Monsters and take some home with you to say I love you to someone special in your life.

We hope to see you here at the train station!  Support these great local artists who live and work in our community.

Kathryn (and Yoda who has his own Monster!)

Antica Murrina Venezia Trunk Show

 

Spring is here and we are planning our season of trunk  shows and special events here at the station.

As a starter, we have an exclusive collection of handblown glass designer jewelry from the Isle of Murano.  One of my exceptions for carrying non-USA made.

Modern...glamorous...amazing color and transparency.. the play of light in these striking pieces... they will make the outfit.  So perfect for Mother's Day.  If you see a piece that you like but want it in another colorway, we can order it for you.


Hope to see you all  soon,

Kathryn Longo

Art Show at the Train Station - April 20th

 

It's Springtime at the Train Station and time to begin our outdoor art shows and trunk shows featuring local artists and artisans.  This Saturday, April 20th, we are featuring fine artist Bryan Collins who grew up here in Oradell.  Here is Bryan a few weeks ago painting right here at the station.

Born in Englewood, NJ, Bryan was raised in a creative environment. His parents (who still live here in Oradell) encouraged his artistic endeavors since early childhood.  Collins graduated from Pratt Institute where he studied Art and Design.  He assimilated a wide variety of visual disciplines such as painting, drawing, graphic design, typography, and photography.

 

Although his work is precise, intelligent, and formally arranged in a contemporary realist style, he does not claim to have found a new way of seeing, rather his eye is "democratic". He integrates the visually democratic eye of a young American with a penchant for magnifying tiny details. Thus, what he paints are little comedies rather than life on a grand scale; he ingeniously delights in the wonders of the commonplace.  His aesthetic intentions, however, are sophisticated and deliberate. His images appear as if they have been awaiting a spectator to awaken their magic.

 

So  come join us this Saturday for coffee and cookies in the morning or wine and cheese in the late afternoon.  Bryan will be here from 10am to 6pm to greet you and talk about his work.

 

See you at the station,

 

Kathryn

Yay - Thank You 201 Magazine - Eco was a Best of Bergen 2013

 Thank you to everyone who voted for Eco Galleria in the 2013 Best of Bergen Poll.  Ecp Galleria was runner up in the Best Gift Shop category only outvoted by two stores that have been in Bergen County for a long time.  Next Year I am sure we will be voted #1 in Best of Bergen when more people are aware of us here at the train station.  But what differentiates us from the other stores is our focus on Made in the USA and eco-conscious gifts.  So please tell your friends about us - although we do advertise, nothing is better than word-of-mouth recommendations.
