little junebugs is a unique children's retail craft boutique that provides whimsical gifts and products for little artists, storytellers and adventurers. Our goal is to provide a place for children to take a break and unplug; a place to feed creative, little minds.
In addition to our retail section, in-store crafting and parties, we love to participate in private and community crafting events and parties. If you can't make it to our location, we can come to yours!
We believe in the importance of art, family and community, so giving back is an integral part of our mission. At the start of 2014, our Co-Owner, Courtney, Co-Founded a non-profit organization called make & believe. make & believe provides free arts & crafts for children battling illness. little junebugs is so proud to support the cause, that we renamed our studio the make & believe studio, and support their programming by donating resources and a percentage of all craft studio sales. When you shop or craft at little junebugs, you help us make and believe.
every imagination needs a place to grow.
have you heard about the loom room?
In 2013, little junebugs partnered with the incredible MaxLove Brand headwear company, stocking our shelves with their wonderful hats with a cause. The MaxLove Brand is a sustainable funding source for the MaxLove Project, a non-profit organization that strives to better the lives of children battling cancer.
On March 1, 2014, the MaxLove Project held a Loom Against Cancer event, where children from all over the country loomed to form the world's largest Rainbow Loom Chain. At the completion of the incredible Loom-a-Thon, the chain was 29,201 feet long. Yes, you read that correctly. The Rainbow Loom chain is taller than Mt. Everest...and it's all inside little junebugs!
how and why is it here, you might ask?
Well, the Master Women behind the MaxLove Project and make & believe conspired to find a creative and amazing way to use all those Rainbows: A Loom Room! We are currently in the process of transforming our store front into a magical, colorful, space - using the chains made with love by thousands of children across the country!
In June, to celebrate our third birthday, we will have an art show and auction, where all the Loom Room pieces will be sold to support our next big collaboration: crafting kits with a cause. little junebugs will soon be introducing a new craft kit, full of color, heart and whimsy...and for every kit that someone purchases, we will give one to the MaxLove/make & believe in-hospital crafting program. We couldn't be more excited for this new addition to our space, we just know you'll love it, too!
