The Evolutionary Path to Gerardi Gems

In 2003, Sharon and I made a decision to leave everthing behind and go on the road to embrace artistic lives. We bought an RV, had four garage sales, and what was left of our possessions was put in a ten by ten foot storage unit.

In preparing to outfit the RV with Sharon's tools, materials, and vendor tent, as well as my guitars and sound equipment, we realized that we needed to have some sort of portal of communication open in which to talk to possible art, garden,and music venues. The answer was two websites: and We purchased domain names and began creating the space and pages necessary to foster a presence in the virutal world of the internet.

Working Out The Bugs

Yes, it's true, we are definitely working out the bugs with our new website.

Please know that Gerardi Gems is still in development. Our site is functioning well, but it still has a few snags here and there. We are currently updating our shopping cart. please note that you may have to manually forward your order to the paypal redirect.  We are also working on the USPS shipping rates, and how information is processed by our "Billing Adress" and "Shipping Address" forms within the shopping cart.

You are welcome to purchase products on this site, but navigating through the checkout process may be a little rocky right now.
