Bridgette's Blog - Market 5-ONE-5
Paint & Petals recently launched our first wholesale market in the Bay Area called Indie Market. This launch has lead to many opportunities, including a unique and unexpected partnership with Market 5-ONE-5, a specialty grocery store that offers fresh, organic, and local food options. As a longtime advocate for health and wellness, I was thrilled to announce this partnership. I see health and wellness as an important part of self-care, essential to living a healthy and fulfilling life. Combining my values and art for this collaboration with Market 5-ONE-5 is exciting.
The first collection we launched with Market-5-ONE-5 was for Valentine's Day. With this launch, I did a two day in- store pop up to connect with customers, share my story as a California-based artist, and connect with the broader community. I also spoke to people about each card, and how they were created from my hand painted designs. You’ll notice in the photos I displayed several hand-painted prints to show the original paintings behind the graphics. People were excited to hear more about the story behind the collection.
The collection is displayed in the front of the store next to the floral shop where you can find orchids, irises and other novelty gifts. Then, just beyond the floral shop, you can find fresh fruit and veggies. It’s a totally fun and new way to pair my art, and I can’t wait for more collections to come with Market 5-ONE-5.
