The Circare Story

WHERE TO BEGIN...

To tell the story of Circare, I have to go waaay back.  My mother, Ethel, was an artist.  She was an oil painter and showed and sold her work at art fairs.  So I grew up watching her create and surrounded by art and fine crafts.  Though I have (alas) never discovered any artistic ability of my own, as I like to say, I appreciate it.  That’s what I do.

Fast forward to just out of college, at loose ends because the fields I thought I would go into lost their appeal (I was an English major destined for advertising or publishing).  It was my father who suggested I give retail a try, as something he thought I would enjoy– obviously, shopping has always been a joy of mine.  He was right.  He was also self-employed and a big proponent of being our own boss.  And so, skipping a whole lot of details (including several years working for Bonwit Teller & Saks Fifth Avenue), in October of 1987, Circare was born.  From my mother’s artistic influence, my fathers insight and drive, my love of beautiful things and a  joy in sharing them with others

 

Our Name

 

Curious about our name?  The word “Circare” is actually a latin verb meaning to go around, go about, explore.”  That’s what we hope people will enjoy doing here.  We want people to come in, not necessarily expecting to find anything in particular, but to see what they can find.  Hopefully something entirely unexpected– and special.

The Art of Gifted Giving

We at Circare believe that, like everything else we do in life, giving can be done well... or not. We like to think we help our customers be “gifted” givers. That means offering gift selections that are not only high quality, but that “speak” to the receiver - that convey a message of thoughtfulness, caring and affection. That say “you are important to me and I want to thank you for letting me share this important moment of your life with you.” At their best, gifts are expressions-- of ourselves and of our feelings for one another. We at Circare want to help you express yourself eloquently.

Circare is like an Art Fair - only better

Specializing in hand-crafted items by American artists, you’ll discover the same creativity and handmade quality you go to an Art Fair for, but with easy parking, no mud or crowds and six days a week convenience. Then we add personal service and free gift wrapping! Supporting American craftsmen and women has always been a vital part of what we do at Circare. While we also bring you the best from around the world, we estimate that roughly half of everything we offer is made in the USA, including many Michigan and local artists.
