I'm excited to announce my latest popup at the JBJ Curated Goods shop on Thursday, September 23rd from 5-7pm. Not only will there be bubbles and chocolates, but I'll also be hosting two California-based, women-owned businesses - On the Wall and Sweet Bu Oil.
Entrepreneur Kelly Tuggle founded art consulting firm On the Wall in 2017 after working at SFMOMA and serving as a buyer in the apparel industry. She provides a personal, service-oriented experience for clients seeking to acquire art for their home or office. Through her relationships with many local, national, and international artists along with galleries, Kelly is able to present her clients with work by both emerging and more established artists. Whenever possible, she goes to great lengths to ensure her clients can preview the work in their space before committing to a purchase. She offers complimentary, in-home consultations and also provides framing services, custom mirror design, and installation if requested.
Melissa and Courtney, the creative makers behind SweetBu Oils, will also be showcasing their two signature scents: Sweet Bu Oils #1 and #2. After meeting on the first day of Kindergarten in nearby Lafayette, Melissa and Courtney became the best of friends. Melissa pursued a successful career in corporate America but then decided to open SweetBu Candy in Malibu, where she lives with her two children. Courtney stayed in their hometown of Lafayette, but the two remained inseparable, even deciding to pursue a shared hobby of blending their own custom fragrances.
Now, they're ready to share their unique and memorable scents with the world. Both varieties are custom blended by hand and feature a mix of creamy coconut and vanilla bean; SweetBu Oil #1 has notes of Persian Garden and #2 has Lily of the Valley. You'll have a hard time just choosing one!
There's nothing more luxurious than fine art, unique jewelry, and high-quality fragrances together. We can't wait to see you at the popup!
