How has „The Story Store” began?
Everybody wants to know. And, as silly as it sounds,
it all began with a single story.
I am Cristina Guraliuc and I create the unique books in The Story Store. I graduated Journalism and I travelled the world to become the best storyteller I could be. It wasn’t until I became a mother that I felt like the best story for myself has been written. And it has.
I have the most wonderful family and I truly believe stories can change the world.
“The Story Store” came to life one night when my little one was crying and nothing seemed to do any good. I then came up with a story about a little girl who lived by the sea. My words managed to soothe her better than anything else. So by the time I finished up the story, she was already asleep. That was a moment of revelation for me.
I suddenly realised how powerful stories can be. How they can heal and bring joy. And everybody has a story that needs to be told, isn’t it? Children are super excited when they see their name in a book and adults are proud to be the hero of their own book. That’s why I like to believe that personalised books have no age whatsoever. They are for everybody.
