"Elizabeth gave me a FaceTime-enabled tour of her 7th Ave shop and asked if I was shopping for a special occasion or just browsing. As I did not have anything in mind, she proceeded to direct my attention to new items in the shop (hard to imagine as I drop by regularly to see what they have, given Sterling Place's penchant for unique gifts) as well as items for the home to "up" the coziness factor due to corona-stay-at-home orders. I admit to finding a few things I "needed" and within an hour of my experience, she was at my door delivering my purchases. All together a unique and fun shopping experience!" - Sarah, Park Slope
"Sterling Place has all kinds of good gift-giving. With department stores becoming extinct, Sterling Place's Virtual Concierge Shopping service may be the better way to shop." - John, Wayne, NJ
"I "shopped" with Elizabeth at 7th Ave and found a wonderful Mother's Day gift. It's something I wouldn't have found randomly looking around online. I told Elizabeth what sorts of things I was interested in and she really listened to me. I was impressed by her knowledge of her inventory and her creative suggestions. A welcome break from quarantine in these crazy times." - Alice, Westport, CT
