Hi, I'm so glad you're here! My name is Shelly Luan and I'm the founder of Gordelly, Unlimited. This is a female-owned small business with just myself as the employee. I'm blessed enough to have a husband that supports and assists me when he can on this dream of mine. The creation and maintenance of this website; stocking, putting vignettes together, maintaining the new physical location and all the behind the scenes is done mostly by myself. I tell you all this, so when you look around and notice things are not perfect like the big box websites, just know that there is a real person on the other side of the screen trying to realize her dream. I appreciate you putting your trust in Gordelly, Unlimited when you make a purchase with us. Shopping online or in-store can be a tough decision. You have tons of places to shop from and sometimes you don't know who to trust with your hard earned money. I get it. It takes time to build relationships and my wish is to build friendships with my customers by earning that trust.
Where did the name come from?
The name Gordelly came about a 10 years ago as a silly joke between my husband and I. I thought it would be funny to combine my husband's name Gordon with my name, Shelly, and came up with Gordelly and it stuck.
Gordelly, Unlimited was founded in November 2014, when I began selling on Amazon. In June 2017, I opened this website as I wanted to give a more personal touch and get to know my customers better. Later in October 2017, the company expanded to the vintage market and opened up a booth in the Carlsbad Village Art and Antique Mall until August of 2019 when it closed.
With the closing of the Mall, it was now or never to realize my dream of having my own store. The boutique had a soft opening in Escondido, CA at the end of August 2019. The boutique specializes in vintage and contemporary treasures for the home and more. We will be having a grand opening in November 2019. With the opening of the boutique we now offer vintage items on this website too.
Please have a look around and if you have questions or need assistance, you can email or message me and I will get back to you as soon as I can. Usually within 24 hours or less. If you are in the Escondido, CA area come visit the store!
