Provide a brief description of your company and the products?
Thirty-One Gifts is a faith based company that believes women should be love, honored and respected for the many roles we play. Our mission is to celebrate, encourage and reward women by offering quality products and an outstanding opportunity to become successful business owners. We have seen this mission play out through the years in the individual lives of so many women who now have their own “Thirty-One story.” Many work full-time jobs and use their Thirty-One income to help pay for those extras like vacations. Some of our Consultants had a dream to be debt-free and have paid off houses and cars. Others have seen Thirty-One become a lifeline to their families in difficult economic times. Despite all the bad news we hear today, our Consultants are selling at record rates.
Thirty-One offers beautiful purses, totes and accessories to eye-catching storage solutions that help organize your life; you’ll find something to fit every personality and situation. Most items can also be personalized to make your own unique statement.
