Inspire Others | Believe in Yourself | Hope for New Beginnings
Hi! I’m Sara McGuinn, owner of IBH Creations and Boutique! My goal is to provide quality products at fair prices in order to provide the items consumers are looking for, but can’t always drop a lot of money on! We believe in working as a unit to uplift all of our customers while supporting our fellow local businesses where we pick up supplies and products from to create some of our handcrafted jewelry pieces! In addition to our traditional retail of handcrafted jewelry, boutique clothing, scarves and accessories we will be hosting various events.
The company started with handcrafted jewelry, when I began trying to save money on gifts for my bridal party, expenses for the bridal party to pay and other personal wedding expenses. As we know weddings are expensive, but beautiful jewelry doesn’t have to be! I use a lot of shatter glass styled beads and glass pearls to create truly elegant pieces you can dress up for an elegant day or night or dress down for a casual look. My goal is to make women feel confident and beautiful without having to spend tons of money. We can even customize products to meet themes or color schemes.
From there the company expanded, quite quickly actually. Sales increased and the quest for new ideas were necessary to continue the growth of the company and meet the requests of customers. IBHCB now offers cashmere feel scarves, pashmina scarves, custom wedding decor, custom ribbon wands for reception send offs, and custom scrabble board signs. Also, in February 2016 we launched a BRAND NEW clothing line, which will carry limited quantities in order to change out our products frequently to constantly bring new options to our clients. At the same time we have opened a new innovative second hand product store for future brides called Second Hand Bridal Treasures.
Second Hand Bridal Treasures gives brides the opportunity to sell their products online and reach more customers than they could from traditional personal sales methods. Their products are out of mind and out of sight since they are stored with us and we handle the listing, customer relations, pick up, delivery and shipping of products. The best part is there is no cost for listing! Newlyweds just sit back and wait for their checks to come in the mail after their product is sold! I am so excited for this new venture and can’t wait to grow in this new category.
Lastly, we host various events to inspire our customers to bring out their crafty side! Some of our planned events are Kid’s Craft Corners where kids can unleash their creativity and we can help inspire those creative young minds. Adult Craft nights are designed to create home decor, glitter wine glasses or other higher skill level crafts designed for adults, including Canvas Creations nights. Exclusive Ladies Nights where hostesses can earn credit towards product in the store and have a fun girls night out. Lastly, dual direct sale parties where we pair up with direct sale consultants and host parties in our event room.
IBH Creations & Boutique is a proud sponsor of the community, by donating 10% of their sales and event proceeds and 10% of Second Hand Bridal Treasures commissions to Let’s Fight Back, a National Multiple Sclerosis Society Team in honor of my mother who was diagnosed in 2009. Check out the LFB page at www.LetsFightBack.com and the donations page to see the sales donations that have already been given this year. We are also willing to do fundraisers and attend shows that are for a cause such as a Festival of Trees and Rescue Shelter Animal fundraisers, just to name a couple. Check out all the shows we attend on our Events/Shows page.
We hope you enjoy our inspirational quotes, fun products and our passion for our customers as much as we do!
