Blue Raddish is about living and doing.
I have always had an interest in art, but thankfully I had parents that knew I wasn’t going to be a famous one. And they were right. I had parents that also offered me a brilliant in-state Iowa education and a business degree.
Over ten years ago, I started my career in corporate America. And as much as I coveted my corporate upbringing and the valuable lessons it taught me, when you climb the ladder, it also takes a bit of your individuality. And I had a burning desire to stay real. I wanted an outlet for creativity, authenticity, and I never wanted to lose the feeling that I am designing my life the way I want it. And so Blue Raddish was born online.
In July 2011, Blue Raddish ventured into the retail art world! We purchased an in-the-flesh-storefront in historic downtown Excelsior Springs, Missouri. We claim that Blue Raddish is the narrowest co-op art store on Earth. Well, if not the narrowest, we are darn close at around 9′ – 10′ wide. It’s a converted alley between two buildings!
But the vision of Blue Raddish and Designing Your Life has assembled some of the quirkiest, creative, and wonderful artists throughout the United States.
The vision with Blue Raddish is to create a line of products that helps you Design Your Life to the fullest. Living life to the fullest equals a life of positivity, individuality and dare we say it? Being proud to be a weirdo!
