Small Business Week | #MySmallBizWhy

Steph Sonya Gina Mary

We are celebrating Small Business Week (April 30th-May 6th)! The year 2004 marked the beginning of an era that was yet to come, The Palatine Building. Family owned and run, the iconic building has evolved into the Central Valley's only Metropolitan Boutique shopping destination housing the family businesses RSVP Style, Gianni Fine Jewelers, and Stems at The Palatine - along with other local specialty professionals. 
We've decided to share what motivates us as small business owners.
See what the owners of Gianni, RSVP and Stems had to say:

It’s an avenue to share my gift of creativity with clients while exposing them to the majesty and wonder of nature through blooms and botanicals, while bringing them joy through all of the ups and downs that life brings.
— Mary C. Papaleo, Stems at The Palatine
The sentiment of jewelry - sometimes a gift, sometimes a mark in life for yourself that you never forget, Gianni creates cherished family memories everyday! My favorite, updating a family heirloom into a piece worn daily touches my ❤️. Life is all about heart - what better to express heart than jewelry?
— Sonya Gage, Gianni Fine Jewelers
People and the relationships that develop from every aspect of being in business...The families we celebrate with in the type of work we do, the staff and team we grow with as our company blooms, and the community we are able to contribute to.
— Gina Jelladian, RSVP Style
Bringing an interesting and luxurious product mix to my customers that have become more like friends and family. I love to help them gift, live and celebrate in RSVP style - it can be very sentimental and always fun!
— Stephanie Bedrosian, RSVP Style
