When we first moved out of the fast-paced DFW Hub, we wanted to relax, sit with our feet atop our outdoor firepit-in-the-round, and enjoy life on a rural backroad. And so we did. Don’t mistake, though…Kristie Christensen still produced stellar brands, designed EXTRA events and kept creating like wildfire in our design studio.
But, something happened on the way to town…we got the crazy idea of diving feet-first into the retail arena. It was there that I actually tapped into a creative place inside myself that elevated my game on every level. I heard the phrase “She is Whiskey in a Teacup” and it just stuck. So, we built a power brand around it. We created & produced vendor markets, we opened a storefront on our downtown bricks, we peddled, we designed, we gussied people up, and we…in that process…created a whole new brand for ourselves.
As time has passed, SHE IS WHISKEY IN A TEACUP has evolved. We aren’t abandoning our retail roots; rather we are refining our offering and turning the brand into a lifestyle brand/private label business that remains true to its mantra, tells its unique story and produces one-of-kind-items that can only be found under our roof.
So, what…or shall I say “Who” is SHE IS WHISKEY IN A TEACUP? It’s Kristie’s Truth, for starters. It’s her Personal Mantra. As a brand, though, we’re a State of Mind. A declaration. She is Whiskey in a Teacup is an attitude-drenched, Chippy/Shabby Boudoir Brand where the only business at hand is sipping Whiskey out of Teacups, Gussying Up and engaging in Southern Girl Boss chatter about riding out at Sunset in sequin-coated chaps with All Guns Blazin’. We’re Marie Antoinette meets Annie Get Your Gun. We’re Old West Paris. We’re Gun-Smoked. We’re Darling Desperados. We’re Posh Pariahs. We’re Lush Lashes, Top Knots & Double Shots. We’re FrouFrou Fraulines. We’re a lot. My husband says we’re EXTRA. He’s right.
We even produce outlandish events…my own wedding was designed after this theme. So, if you are EXTRA and want a little whiskey tossed into your wedding or event teacup, then you’ll want to unleash Kristie’s creative prowess and take a sip from the creative cup that is SHE IS WHISKEY IN A TEACUP.
