My one-girl shop has just become a Two Girl shop.
Three years ago I met a lady named Darcy Danger. My life has not been the same since.
You know how sometimes you meet someone and - it's just right? That's what happened.
Darcy has been an encourager, cheerleader, advice giver, sounding board and dear friend ever since.
This Summer I was having a REALLY hard time even pretending to remotely keep up (preparing for 7 events this Fall!) - when she offered the perfect solution: Darcy is my new Agent and Manager.
Darcy's history in sales, management, marketing and customer relations matched with her bubbly personality, minute attention to the small stuff and her overwhelming passion for Art made it ridiculous that we had not thought of it sooner.
So what’s new?
The Mab Shops have moved to New Jersey!
Almost all the shipping will be coming out of Danger Studios in NJ this year. Also, Darcy is helping me keep up with my emails (left to my own, I get to answer emails once every 4-8 days! I really needed help there >_<) so you will be hearing back from us MUCH sooner than ever before!
What’s the Same?
Everything! It’s all just better.
Everything is still produced 100% by me, I'm just not spending 10 hours a week packing and shipping!
Everything. Now I can streamline my studio life and spend more time doing what my soul desperately craves - painting. I will be able to create more original works, more cameos and sculpture and branch out into trying new things I've only been able to sigh about.
If you are bopping around my Etsy (https://www.etsy.com/shop/mabgraves) feel free to send Darcy a note to say hello or ask her any questions! Trust me - she's amazing.
Here is a shot of Danger Studios where the Waifs now await!
