Bradshaws Guest Gift Curator – Lauren Polidoro

We recently collaborated with a few taste makers, whose creativity, style, thoughtfulness of gifting and love of shopping local for quality gifts inspires us. 


Our first Guest Gift Curator is Lauren Polidoro. A Stratford local who has a career in Graphic Design, as well as her side business Flourish Calligraphy, creating stunning romantic calligraphy and stationary for the modern bride. We L O V E Lauren’s style aesthetic and equally love her gift selections she handpicked from Bradshaws.
