Our Story

This whole adventure started over drinks with two friends talking about life and what was next. Katie mentioned a little idea she had but felt overwhelmed at the thought of doing it alone. That's when Susanna responded, "Count me in!" And within months, EMBOX was born!

We both have toddlers who are wildly active so we understand the costs in time and money driving from "boutique store" -to- "boutique store" looking for that perfectly original gift. Because of that, we usually end up in big-box brand stores for one-stop (generic!) shopping.  Or worse: gift cards.

We want to see small business owners and artists succeed and everyone to know there is more to our city than our most popular food items that, if we're honest, non-natives may not like. Now you can give them a more personal and original look at what our city has to offer!
