First Time Boutiques with a BIG Impression!

Friday, June 5, 2009

Our big boutique day this week was on Friday! We were so excited to visit these fabulous boutiques, so we decided to get out a day earlier this week. Before I talk boutique details, I have to say....Mindy Mae's Market and The Backyard Boutique were superb! I have never met a better group of individuals! Nikki of Mindy Mae's Market and Amanda of The Backyard Boutique (along with her sweet parents) gave awe inspiring shows! We were so impressed that both of these shows were first timers! You would have never guessed that these shows had never been done before! The locations, the advertising, the setup, and vendors were amazing and well thought out. Boutique Frenzy was honored to be involved with these amazing boutiques. Major kudos to you both!

Let me tell you why you missed out if you didn't go to these boutiques....

Nikki Weekes, organizer and promoter of Mindy Mae's Market, put on an excellent boutique in Farmington at a beautiful Destination Homes Model Home. Nikki found a great group of vendors for her first show. We had a great time looking through the home at all of the amazingly talented artisan's products. Here we are in front of the Destination Model Home (look at all those cars! everyone wanted to take a look!):

Here is the famous Boutique Frenzy display at Mindy Mae's the garage right before checkout! Thanks to all who stopped at our display and played the Little Red Box game and joined our "Frenzy List!"

Here are a few of the vendors that we had a chance to get to know at Mindy Mae's Market...

You all remember Brooke Mortensen of Ritzy Misfit? Well, she comes from a very creative and talented family! Here she is with her sister, Kersey Campbell creator of Made by Matchgirl and her mother Terry Eagleston creator of adorable soft baby blocks. It was so fun to see these 3 together presenting their creative and unique abilities!

This is Amberlynn Rasmussen, creator of Cutsie Cakes-Cupcakery and Gift Boutique! Amberlynn was so much fun to talk to and I couldn't stop looking at her delicious cupcakes! She was kind enough to send us home with a box of them and we didn't even make it to the car...

My favorite was the chocolate cupcake with chocolate frosting! Her cake is so moist and flavorful and the frosting was to die for! Topped with a cherry...could anyone ask for more?

This is Becki, creator of Becki's Designs. Becki makes beautiful unique jewelry. She has a knack for putting colors and shapes together to make beautifully designed jewelry. Check out her stuff at!

This is where I do a Shout Out to Nikki and all of her vendors...Thank you all for making this world a better place with your unique and fabulous talents and services! Mindy Mae's Market is sure to be a hit for years to come! Thanks for letting Boutique Frenzy come and be a part of the very first one!

Now for boutique #2!
Amanda Spencer and her sweet Mom, Tricia McCoy and Dad, Dennis, ran the first ever Backyard Boutique in Lindon in their own beautiful backyard! The Backyard Boutique was started by this mother-daughter team on a mission to create and share their designs and the creativity of others with everyone they can! They want it to be fun and interactive for not only the customers, but the vendors as well!! This is exactly what they created. Dead-on on their very first one! Amanda Spencer and her Mom are the creators of Mumzeys-highest quality handmade products! Their product include bags, tutus, headbands, ballet shoes, bows, and rag tags. Adorable stuff and very high quality! So... not only could you shop some of the best vendors in Utah, you could buy from the promoters themselves!

Now let's talk location! Look at how beautiful this yard conisted of three waterfalls, amazing landscaping and more! This boutique was seriously a get away! Besides a little wind and rain, the location was a shopper's paradise! My kids had a great time in the Kid Zone on the blow up bouncing gym. They also got FREE cotton candy! This was the perfect place for moms with children. Moms got to shop in peace, children got to play!

They also had live music going and glitter toes!

If you think the the Backyard Boutique was totally awesome...wait! There is still more! Not only did it have great vendors, amazing location, music, and fun for the kids, The Backyard Boutique was also an Orphanage Project! The Mumzeys' teamed up with one of their great vendors, Kharisma.
This is Melissa with her unique Bali items and the school supply drive that was held during the boutique!

Together they put together a school supplies drive for the children in Bali! Tricia McCoy is known for her humanitarian efforts and Kharisma, created by Melissa Van Leeuwen and Melanie Larsen, have spent the last few weeks in Bali, Indonesia looking for the most unique items they could find to sell at boutiques and on their website. Check out their website here for more details on their products! They buy handmade products from the people of Bali and then they donate a percentage of everything they make back to the people of Bali! What a great company and how neat! We enjoyed talking to Melissa and getting to know Kharisma and it's unique handmade Bali merchandise and mission. Check out these pictures of their latest trip to the orphanage in Bali:

Check back soon on our Heartisan Award page for some more info on Kharisma!

Thank you Amanda, Tricia, and Dennis for a very fun Friday! We enjoyed the music, the shopping, the Kids Zone, the treats, the talent, and your BACKYARD! What a delight you are! Also, a Thank You goes to all the vendors for sharing your talents with all and for giving us a job! We love what we do and WE THANK YOU! (wow! I rhymed).
