Tracy Stolese

Shelburne Gift Company

Tracy Stolese is the owner of Shelburne Gift Company, which designs, creates and delivers custom gifts and stationery for weddings, events and corporate clients. The business began as Arabesque, a luxury gift and home décor boutique, and merged with the neighboring stationery shop Ink Ink in 2011. In 2018, looking for more flexibility in her schedule, Tracy decided to transition away from the retail storefront and focus on working one-on-one with wedding and corporate clients. She moved into a new location down the road and now curates gift boxes in a sunny studio on Shelburne Road.

Prior to owning her business, Tracy had a 20-year career in media and marketing. She and her husband, Mike, also created and have produced the Burlington Wine & Food festival, Vermont’s largest wine and food event, since 2010. When she’s not at work, you’ll likely find her checking out area restaurants, boating, attending a classic rock concert or hanging out with their two dogs, Shelby the cockapoo and Nero the Great Dane.
