We had the good fortune of connecting with Orraine Silvera and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Orraine, we’d love to start by asking you about lessons learned. Is there a lesson you can share with us?
Don’t take advice from anyone who hasn’t at least try to do anything similar to what you are doing. Be cautious of most advice and who it is coming from. Your success is greater if you surround yourself with like minded individuals.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
“Unique Gifts and Collectibles is the only location in metro Atlanta where you can find a rare Michael Jordan rookie card or a rare 18 century Bible. Maybe your in the market for a vintage game boy or a Peter Max original painting. At UGC you will find one of a kind gifts that no big box store sells. Your shopping experience will be rare and Unique at Unique Gifts & Collectibles.”

Visit us at 4929 N Henry Blvd Stockbridge, GA 30281.”

The motivation that made me though about opening a collectibles & gift store was the fact that I have always been the type of person who seems to have the latest and the greatest but there was not a store that caters to the person who has it all. A one stop shop to get that very special gift for anyone in your life. That is Unique Gifts and Collectibles.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would definitely recommend attending an Atlanta Braves game and then stopping by Chicago Pizza for a drink. On a Sunday, checkout Flip Flop’s day party hosted by J Anthony.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I would like to give thanks to God, my family, and to the love of my life; Dr. Ebony Coleman. Thank you all for believing in me.
