In what has become an anticipated highlight of GBK's Primetime Emmys Gifting Suite, celebrities and press stopping by The Artisan Group (http://www.theartisangroup.org) display were treated to the best in handcrafted. They took home swag bags brimming with artisan goods from jewelry to spa products to stationery to couture pet clothing—all created by independent artisans working in the United States and internationally.

The Artisan Group has become a popular destination for celebrities and the press at GBK’s award show gift lounges. “Our members’ creativity and dedication to quality shines through,” said The Artisan Group Founder Valerie Guerrero. “Hollywood loves out-of-the-ordinary, high-end handcrafted products, so it’s a perfect fit.”

During a visit with Guerrero on Saturday at the Primetime Emmys Gift Lounge, she said, “You know, I have to tell you, I was absolutely overwhelmed with the amazing quality of gifts I received in your gift bag. Every single gift I unwrapped from your bag was truly incredible. Everything was so nicely packaged, and I enjoyed everything so much. You have some talented members in your group.”
