I’ve got a secret to share!!! Come read what’s got me dancing in my pants!

I have been DYING to share some news with you guys!  I’ve been trying to stay patient and wait for a few more details to all come together before the big announcement and … I think it’s finally time I share with you guys my happy happy news!
PB&Jcreations is officially in a storefront! 

{Enter picture of me jumping up and down frantically waving my arms and legs}

The quick facts:
The store is called Artifact and it’s BRAND NEW.  They haven’t even opened their doors yet. It’s one of a kind, it’s awesome, it’s the perfect fit for PB&Jcreations.  It’s opening in the shopping center of Tivoli in Las Vegas and will be having its grand opening in July 2012.

The fun facts:
The owner’s name is Molly and she’s incredibly sweet, energetic and full of amazing ideas.  The second I talked to her on the phone, I knew she had a true passion of this business and she was going to treat my pieces well, and I knew it was a perfect fit.  Her passion behind the store, Artifact, is reclaimed, repurposed, upcycled art.  She has hand picked all her vendors and will set up her store like a gallery style store.  Everything that is placed where is will have a purpose, a story to tell.  She’s hand picked pieces from each of her vendors that will collaborate well with other pieces to create cohesive spaces.  Read more about the store’s purpose and passion here.

She has selected a few of my signs which she'll showcase in her shop as a cohesive design with other vendor's pieces.  Then when customers come into her shop they can order those specific signs, through her at that time.  Each piece will be hand made and made to order for each customer, just as it is when someone orders via my shop on Etsy.  I  really liked that we decided to do our set up like this, rather than wholesale because PB&Jcreations is still my baby and I put so much of my personal nights and weekends into each of the signs made, I wasn’t ready to make bulk orders and ship them out yet.


PB&Jcreations has been a blessing since I opened the doors in October.  Between the my blog, my own DIY projects, and the signs I spend almost every single night after work, and all day on the weekends working on one project or another.  My blood, sweat, and laughs are in each and every piece I create.  I am honored to be a part of something so wonderful as Molly’s new store Artifact.  I’m truly honored and blessed she believes in my pieces as much as she does.  She has an amazing collection of vendors with extreme talent, it’s a bit intimidating for me, but with her passion and her beliefs in me, I’ve jumped in with both feet.

I am SO SO excited for this new journey and adventure for PB&J!  I am so lucky to have such a supportive husband and family that allows me to do this much side work.  Hopefully one day, I won’t be working on these projects after a full days of work, and this will become my full day’s work.  I would love to be able to do this full time one day.

If you’re in the Vegas area I would LOVE LOVE LOVE it if you’d head to Artifact once it’s open and show your support for the opening of the store and of course send me some pictures of my signs hehe!
