NEW YORK (AP) A spa gift gift set for a Queens woman who got her start in the beauty industry is among items from the collection sold at the spa resort.
Spa Gift, a New York-based luxury spa, said on its website Monday that the gift set included spa supplies, spa supplies from New York City and New York State and spa accessories, including an oil cleanser.
The spa set, priced at $15,500, was first spotted by Marie-Josef Dittmar, who started working at the Spa Resort in New York in 2009.
Dittmars sister-in-law, who was also at the time a customer at the New York spa, spotted it and bought it.
The $15-a-piece gift set is one of several items from a Spa Gift collection that were featured in a sale at the upscale spa on Monday.
Dittmar said in a blog post that she was pleased to see the gift was sold at such a low price, as it represents a great return for the customer.
She says that the spa’s collection has grown to include products from a number of brands, including Chanel, Guerlain, Burberry and Chanel.
Spas are among the most expensive places to work in the United States.
Many of the most-expensive items on sale at spa gift shops include high-end spa treatments, luxury spa accessories and other services.
