Ellie Gordon has definitely come a long way from being a Holocaust survivor who fled her homeland of Poland with her parents, to try their luck in America.
At the early age of seven, Ellie started developing her canny business sense when her father bought a soda/candy shop in New York City. Her daily routine was school by day and work at the shop after school. That was basically her routine until her parents started a buy and sell business of stores. With the money made, Ellie then studied art history at American University, located at Washington DC. Art has always been a passion of Ellie’s ever since. It was also during this time that she met Mark, her would-be husband. After gaining her bachelor’s, Ellie immediately attended graduate school, where she started meshing her passion with art and the entrepreneurial experience she gained from working the many shops her parents bought and sold over time. This mixing and matching was actually done unknowingly on her part. But it did not take long for her to start honing her business skills because of the support her parents had given her for so long.
Pretty soon, things started falling into place, and these began paving the way for Ellie to become the artsy entrepreneur that she is today.
