Kikaboo Creations came to be as a result of a long journey of creating different things. I picked up jewelry making as a hobby in 2011 while recovering from cancer treatment.
I was able to sit and design for hours, and began putting very early designs together. When I went back to work some months later, I put things away, but never abandoned going to bead shows. In early 2014, after pulling out some of my favorites I'd collected, timing seemed right, and all of a sudden I was ready to take the next step and make this a business.
I've morphed things a lot as I've learned the ins and outs of running a craft fair and festival based business. Everything from inventory, to event planning, merchandising and logistics. It's been a lot of fun, and a lot of work. My product lines have also changed, some being more successful than others, but as I adapt and focus, things have gradually come together. Most importantly, I enjoy meeting people from all walks of life, and helping customers to discover the perfect item always brings a smile to my face!
My husband and I live in San Martin CA (sandwiched between Gilroy and Morgan Hill in South Santa Clara County). We share our time with our two english bulldogs - Rosie and Magoo, and our 3 cats - Hunter, Punkin and Smokie.
I hope you'll be just as inspired visiting our store as I am pulling my products together.
