The World's Sweetest Signs
I have always loved Gingerbread and especially making Gingerbread Houses. Each start of December I would decide my design for that year and go to work. We lived in the Southern California area and the Gingerbread creations would last almost till spring, except for the one the cat ate, she really liked the pretzels.
In 1998 in Littlerock, Ca on Pearblossom Highway in an old converted house we opened the Gingerbread Shoppe Cafe and Bakery. It was an instant success. Boy talk about a lot of work! Unfortunately due to zoning problems with the old house we had to close two years later, after going thru such heart break we decided to not reopen.
Two years later we were transferred to Chicago! I still continued to sell my items on line and at various craft shows and specialty boutiques. We now live and have a full service studio in Fort Wayne, IN.
The name Gingerbread Shoppe has stuck, because Gingerbread reminds of comfort and home all things good!
Over the past three years our Etsy site has become my saving grace! I am a much happier person when I am creating. I love designing signs for people, whether it is for their home, a gift, holiday or wedding. We specialize in custom order. So lucky to have such talented people to work with everyday.
We moved into a 5000sqt facility last year. We are a full in house sign shop. We make everything from start to finish. With two graphic designers in house we have a variety of different techniques to make your sign and at different budget ranges. Send us a message and let us know what you have in mind. With highly skilled artists, 2 laser engraving machines and 2 UV printers the possibilities are endless.
You can rest assured that when you buy something from either of our two shops, World’s Sweetest Signs, Gingerbread Romantic, GingerbreadEngraved or GingerbreadChildren you are getting something that came from a wonderful family where love grows.
Please check – out all four of our Etsy shops!
