About Us

Our mission is to create a space for artisans, customers and community to learn, grow, and empower the arts and the entrepreneurial spirit.

Thistle Be Perfect Artisan Boutique came to life in early 2019.  At the time I was at a crossroads in my creative life and career. We decided to take a risk and create a place where entrepreneurs, like us, could have a place to display their products, learn from each other, network, grow together, and teach the community.  But most of all have fun and enjoy what you do.  We enjoy life and creating is a big part of it.

We create handcrafted items and we have experienced the barriers that many artisans have.  We wanted to be a shop that appreciates and brings recognition to people who work hard and create handcrafted products.  They are labors of love and we know how awesome the work is.  

So we created this shop with the intention to break the barriers and make this our own niche where other creative minded people can come together and bring recognition to the value of something hand made.

We hope you enjoy it as much as we do...

Our Name

So where did the name come from?  My family is Scottish and our history is proud and strong.  I come from a long line of crafters and entrepreneurs.  So, the thistle is one symbol of Scotland and I always say ,when I’m shopping with family or friends and I find that special thing…  “this will be perfect!!!”  So the play on words came to me and thats how the name and logo came to be.  And I know you will find the perfect thing for someone here at the boutique too!!

Our Community

"Handcrafted gifts are the equivalent to a handwritten letter in todays world."
-Bryn, Local Artist

Thistle Be Perfect serves as a community of artisans coming together to learn from each other and grow their talents.  We provide a platform where artists can display their products and explore their entrepreneurial spirit.  We also offer classes to the community to help foster creativity and arts in all.
