Frill Seekers Gifts and Personalized Fabulous Finds
For centuries, savvy Southerners have been sporting their letters on everything from jewelry, clothing, cars and exquisite fine stationery to establish a form of identity. Ever wonder why monograms are so popular with celebrities, stylists and your BFF?
People want them for family traditions, new names upon marriage, new babies, new homes with the family’s personal home insignia or a beach house name. People love to feel connected to their ancestors and history. For many, monograms are a popular way to pass on their heritage, especially on pieces of jewelry. These personalized items become treasured heirlooms to pass down from generation to generation. The monogram trend isn’t new, especially in the South. Rulers as far back as the early Greek and Roman history would put their seal on currency to help identify from whence it came. In the Middle Ages, artists took the idea and applied monograms to their work as signatures. Even later, the Victorians also made monogramming their own to show off their wealth and status by wearing precious jewelry and expensive embroidery with their initials. Now’s the time to start your collection! Shop now at FrillSeekersGifts.com or stop by the motherland of all things monogrammed! Open Monday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturdays 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
