Located on the beautiful Connecticut shoreline, Uno Alla Volta was founded by Terri Alpert in 2002. A bold entrepreneur, Terri had the vision to bring handcrafted treasures from the hearts and hands of artisans to market.
Our name means “one at a time” in Italian, and describes how our artisans lovingly handcraft each of our treasures. Our merchants travel to every corner of the globe in search of unique, beautifully handmade gifts to surprise and delight our customers. By building personal relationships with each and every one of our artisans, our team has created a worldwide family of creators and collectors. With the mission to tell the stories of each of our artisans, we aim to bring the human connection into every interaction, from the pages of our catalog to our social media posts. As Uno Alla Volta continues to grow, we look forward to expanding our circle of creativity to include new artisans, new customers, and new members of our team.
To create a specialized business model offering unique product assortments and exceptional brand experiences that enrich and enhance our customers’ lives by fostering human connections. We do this by listening to our customers, creating a strong network of vendor relationships, and developing a culture that fosters teamwork, participation and business-minded thinking, while always remaining true to our core values.
