Introducing Shannon Road Gifts,
formerly Brownlow Gifts.

Dear Valued Customer,

Welcome to Shannon Road Gifts, formerly Brownlow Gifts. As you may have already heard, back in August 2021 About Face Designs, Inc. located in Highland Park, Illinois, acquired the Brownlow Gifts company based in Ft. Worth, Texas from the Brownlow Family. The acquisition included the intellectual properties of the product brands, artists portfolios and license agreements,  existing product lines, and the national and international sales organizations, and hopefully, the wonderful customer relationships. 


Over the past 4 months our team has worked tirelessly on the assimilation and integration of the people, ideas, vision, culture, relationships, partnerships, and operations of Brownlow Gifts, not to mention the development of the 2022 new line introduction you are about to preview in our first catalog under the banner of Shannon Road Gifts. We are proud and excited to continue the tradition with over 500 items within the already recognizable and successful gift collections: Simple Inspirations, Classic Kitchen, and more.

The initial customer reaction to our Shannon Road Gifts line launched at the January 2022 gift shows has been outstanding, and we are most appreciative of the warm and hearty reception from you, our value customer.

In our first year in the continuation of the stellar 43-year history of Brownlow Gifts, our company’s mission statement is “A new name. The same commitment to product, quality, people, and customer service.” We look forward to serving you and earning your continued patronage.


Robert Ricciardi
