I’ve been shopping at the Kadena Gift Corner since moving to our little island of Okinawa. One of the things you quickly learn upon moving here is how limited your options are when it comes to outfitting your home. Coming from the states, we are so spoiled with stores like TJ Maxx, Home Goods, and Target - and how easily everything will ship right to your front door. This is definitely not the case while living overseas. Though there are some local stores out in town that could easily get you by with your home needs, I think the Kadena Gift Corner offers something very special that most places don’t.
Here is a first look at their most current Bali shipment, opening for the public tomorrow May 31st 2019 at 10am!
Grace Gallin Stout, the current Merchandise Manager of KGC, draws inspiration from various blogs, social media and searches for what is currently on trend. This Bali shipment will be her last shipment all of which she personally curates and stages. She is an artist and an anthropologist. She loves to travel and learn about people and their culture. Her passion for both, combined with her love of home decor has made her successful in this position.
Grace’s keen eye and sense of style will surely be missed. She was a wonderful buyer and integral part of the gift corners success. But don’t fret, they have found another amazing woman representing the military spouse community. Let me introduce you to Kristina Werner!
So to keep things short & sweet, I love shopping & supporting the Kadena Gift Corner. Not only is it driven by military spouses, it supports our community and local non-profit organizations. Last year they raised over $33,000 for the Kadena Officers Spouses Club. They offer many volunteer opportunities and show you love with endless laughs and perks. Once you get to know the team, you really feel like you’re a part of a family, and most of all, part of a greater purpose to make positive impact within our community. So whether you just want to find cute eclectic pieces for your home, or volunteer and become part of the team, come hang out at the Kadena Gift Corner starting tomorrow for their Bali opening. #youshopwegive
