Dynasty Gallery & Gifts in Ocoee carries high-end jewelry and items at affordable prices.
Dynasty Gallery & Gifts Is a One-Stop Gift Shop
Imagine a gift shop staff that treats customers like friends and family, even if it is their first visit. Imagine a retail experience, where patrons see people they know from their community and know, by shopping there, they are contributing to either a worthy local or international cause. You are imagining Dynasty Gallery & Gifts, a store embedded in the west Orlando community for more than 20 years.
Located in the West Oaks Village shopping plaza on Clarke Road north of State Road 50, Dynasty Gallery & Gifts is the go-to place for birthday, bridal and holiday gifts. It carries high-end affordable jewelry, including national brands Pandora, Swarovski, Alex and Ani, Brighton, Thomas Sabo, Lokai and more. The store keeps a record of the purchase history of its regular shoppers and items that are on clients’ wish lists. This way, when a gift is needed for a customer, the staff can help with the selection, knowing which items are already in that person’s collection and which he or she wants for a future occasion.
Dynasty Gallery & Gifts is exactly what the name suggests. It is a shop that brilliantly displays its collections in a gallery-like setting. Upon entering, each customer is treated like a best friend who has stopped by for a visit. Offering complimentary tea, coffee, water, soda and fresh home-baked cookies, the staff takes time to find out exactly what brought each visitor into the store (besides the hospitality). Once a selection is made, the gift receives complimentary wrapping, and cards are available to purchase. That is why Dynasty is considered a one-stop gift shop
There is also a frequent-shopper program where for every $50 spent, a stamp is given. Once $500 worth of stamps is attained, the customer receives a $25 credit toward his or her next purchase. Staff members always find the time to call their clients when a new collection item of interest hits the store. Other in-stock quality brands with loyal followings include Crislu, Armani and Natural Life.
For special bridal gifts, consider something from the Heartstrings collection. According to Manager Christopher Bell, the manufacturer will “monogram almost anything.” Bell also said that the days leading up to Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day and Christmas are the store’s peak times. Dynasty is adding Father’s Day to that list by introducing a European line of jewelry for men, including a wide selection of Thomas Sabo items.
In addition to popular brands, Dynasty also carries gift items that provide financial assistance to global causes. Elephant Pants is a casual yoga clothing line that is appropriate apparel for any social occasion. Ten percent of the company’s sales are donated to help save African elephants. This line was also featured on a recent episode of Shark Tank.
Another popular item supporting a social cause is Pura Vida bracelets, which come from Costa Rica. The brand started with surfers making and selling the items on the beach. Soon it became a well-known product that contributes to saving the world’s oceans.
Lokai tranquility jewelry combines water from the top of Mount Everest with mud from the Dead Sea, the highest and lowest points on earth. These fashion accessories are said to provide harmony and balance to the wearer. There are also MantraBands to purchase. Each of these lacquered, stainless-steel, solid band bracelets are engraved with an inspirational saying. They are not only unique but are perfect for both male and female recipients.
Closer to home, the spirit of donating back to the Ocoee community is evident at Dynasty Gallery & Gifts as well. Harry and Natasha Mirpuri, longtime local residents and the store’s owners, give generously of their time and resources each Christmas season to Ocoee Police Department’s annual Holiday Toys for Kids in Need, including a visit from Santa to the store each Saturday for the kids.
