Members this year sent her on an extra trip to purchase gifts for their Christmas stockings. For quality, she has an excellent eye for detail, and her product knowledge is extensive. Fluent in Italian, she knows exactly what to ask to get members the best price.

Ten out of ten members rate her shopping skills five stars plus. This is total satisfaction.

“I care and understand the needs of members. Giving them what they expect is my priority, with respect for what they would like to spend. Satisfying members, designers, and non-members request from showrooms and boutiques is not as easy as it seems. To make purchases that they could only do themselves personally at a store in Italy, is a tall order,” says Stefania the proud buyer.

In the video, come along as Stefania braves weather, traffic, and unlikely situations as she performs what she calls “her fantasy job.” Next Christmas instead of giving Santa Claus your list, contact Stefania for a distinctive gift. You too, will see why she is number one among her fellow members. Brava Stefy!
