New Family Business Directory!

1950’s vintage advertisement for Gus Genetti’s Hotel and Restaurant, Hazleton, PA

A new page has been added to our family website: Genetti Family Directory of Services, Businesses and Creators. Since our family is filled with entrepreneurial spirit, I thought it was about time that we created a directory in support of Genetti family businesses.

Please help me grow our directory by adding as many family businesses, services and creators as possible.

The criteria:

  1. The person or owner of business must be a Genetti descendant or spouse of a Genetti descendant.
  2. The listing must fit into one of these categories: business, service, creator (artist, musician, author, designer).
  3. The listing must have a website address that we can link to.

All listings are free of charge. If you would like your business or service listed or know of someone who should be included in our directory, please use the Contact form on our website. Send the business or person’s name; description of business, service or creator’s specialty; and their web address. I’ll take care of the rest.

I hope you enjoy visiting the websites listed in our Family Business Directory as well as patronizing their services and creations.

The Glass Studio of Gary Genetti

GaryGenettiIf you live near the New York City area or eastern Pennsylvania, make sure you stop by the Glass Studio of Gary Genetti during the weekend of November 27-29. Every year Gary opens the doors of his studio to the public, offering a glimpse of his exquisite glass art. The event takes place in the rural town of Warwick, New York – just north of NYC. For address and phone number, see the flyer shown here or check Gary’s website.

Etched Glassware from Gary Genetti

6set-GaryI received a wonderful email from Gary Genetti today. Gary is a master glass artist with work in many private and museum collections. He has generously offered to etch glassware with the Genetti Coat-of-Arms for family members at a discounted price.

I’ve created a separate page in our Genetti Shop just for Gary. Please stop by to see more examples of Genetti glassware. Click here to visit Gary’s page.

I’ve also spoken with Gary about offering more of his glass pieces in our online shop. I’m very excited about this! It would be fantastic to showcase the artistic talents of our family members. I look forward to working with Gary in 2015 on this project.
