Huephoria

AND THE WINNER IS:
TAYLOR!!
CONGRATULATIONS!

Do you enjoy a glass of wine every now & then? Would you like a really cute pair of Salt & Pepper shakers on your table? If you answer is "yes" then you need to check out Huephoria. The have wonderful hand painted wine glasses and also salt & pepper shakers in lovely designs.


A little about HuePhoria:

HuePhoria's two Syracuse, NY artists, Jen and Lisa, met at a "Mom's Coffee" in 1998. While staying home to raise their children, they both had found outlets to feed their creative souls...and to keep their sanity. Their common interests would eventually come in very handy for their future endeavor: throwing fun and spontaneous parties, experiencing retail therapy outings and, of course, painting anything they could get their hands on. The two quickly became great friends and decided to paint furniture and glassware to try to make some extra cash. Lisa and Jen began selling their HuePhoria hand painted goods at local fundraisers and through word of mouth to get their hobby-turned-business into motion.

The HuePhoria "ball" concept was born in 1999 out of necessity. The wine glass supply in their cupboards seemed to be dwindling (probably from the fun and spontaneous parties) and they saw this as an opportunity to paint some new ones for themselves that would be much more creative than the glasses they were seeing in stores. Not only that, the idea of each person having their own unique ball design on their glass would solve the ongoing dilemma of remembering who's drink was who's! Lisa and Jen got to work, painting each glass and baking them in their ovens, and selling them to the loyal customer base they had built locally. (Unfortunately for their families it was about the only baking being done in their kitchens!)

After selling more than 5,000 glasses in 2 years, they hit a point where could not keep up with demand, nor could they offer the glasses to retail stores at a wholesale price that would keep them in business. (Not to mention that they were both going blind from the tiny detail painting!) However, this was their dream and they were not ready to hang up their paintbrushes just yet. In 2005, grassroots HuePhoria took a leap...they partnered with dear friend Kathy (a NH businesswoman) to help jump start HuePhoria glassware into mass production.

With a high quality line of hand-blown, hand-painted, dishwasher safe stemware, HuePhoria hit the retail market. Jen, Lisa & Kathy have been "having a ball" ever since!

We don't drink wine as a rule at our house, but I usually have the salt & pepper shakers close to the table, in the kitchen. So when Lisa from Huephoria offered to send me a wineglass to review, I asked if salt & pepper shakers could be sent instead. I could pick any set I wanted, and picked the snowman set - LOVE snowmen :)

They are adorable! There are two different snowmen on each shaker. The shakers are glass with a metal twist top and painted designs on the sides. "The Men" looked at me a bit funny when I set the table with the shakers - they just don't understand my fascination with snowmen. The shakers work great and look great, so they will just have to deal with snowmen on the table year round.


NOW FOR THE GIVE AWAY!

Huephoria will send one person their choice of Salt & Pepper Shakers.
