Welcome! Thanks for stopping by! I’m Erin Byrge an Executive Director with Thirty-One Gifts! Based in Surf City, NC, I am thrilled to introduce you to our fashionable and functional totes, handbags, and home organization products!  Our products make gift-giving easy!  <<even when you are treating yourself>>

A little about me… Prior to becoming a full-time bag lady, I was a full-time high school Math and Chemistry teacher.  I was first introduced to Thirty-One when I was doing some fundraising for Women for Tri in the summer of 2016.  I joined to use the commission to help me with my fundraising.  I stayed because I found a company and community that truly empowers women!  Plus, I fell in love with the product!!  I worked my bag biz in the cracks of my day for that first year while teaching full-time, raising two busy teenagers, and training for Ironman triathlon races.  I quickly became a leader and have built a team of amazing women who support each other as a fam’ly does!  Just one year after joining, I took the plunge and decided to work my Thirty-One business full-time!  I love that I get to work my business on my time and almost exclusively online from the comfort of my own home (or coffee shop or lounge chair in the sun!)

In addition to working my Thirty-One business, I still race triathlons and enjoy training other consultants.  I love being a mom to two amazing young adults who make me so very proud!  My husband, Mark, and I love craft beer, ocean waves, and jeep rides!  We just moved to our retirement home on the ocean and are working towards fixing it up to make it uniquely ours!




I can’t wait to introduce you to Thirty-One Gifts! Cindy Monroe founded Thirty-One Gifts in 2003 with one simple goal in mind – to help women by giving them the opportunity to run their own successful business. That goal remains our No. 1 priority today.

Not only do our fashionable, functional products make life easier – they also help independent business owners across the country support their families and reach their dreams.

Over the past 17 years, our sales Consultants have held over 6 million parties. Along the way we’ve also been blessed to give back to organizations that share our mission in North America and around the world. You can learn more about our history here.

We all have a “why” – a reason for doing the things we do. Maybe yours is Family, Friends, Faith, Flexibility. Maybe it’s just having fun. Our why is to help you reach yours.
