About Us

This couch was the first “office” of E&R Sales, born in Harry & Lois Gellis’ living room, back in 1986. Harry handled sales and Lois handled everything else. Their daughters, Elissa and Randi, would come home from school each day and inflate 9″ mini balloons for grocery accounts while sitting on this very couch.

Back then, E&R Sales was opened 4 days a week and closed at 3pm each day so Lois could tend to the family. Now, more than 35 years later, E&R Sales operates out of a former supermarket in the suburbs of Richmond, Virginia. Elissa took over as the team’s “Head Coach” when Harry retired.

Thanks to a dedicated team with decades of combined industry expertise, E&R Sales gratefully serves thousands of satisfied customers, offering more than 2000 items in the balloon, pen, and novelty trend categories; and continues to ship same day with only a $50 minimum order.

Enjoying our niche serving the gift, floral, hospital, and grocery markets, we take pride in providing the best in service and product to our customers. We have decorators and twisters covered too as we are a Full Line Distributor of Betallatex Latex!

Thank you for your interest in partnering with us! Our customer service department is open Monday – Friday (9am-5pm EST) and can be reached at 804-744-8000 / Shop online anytime!
