Exciting news! Three ribbon cuttings in one & welcome to Pop Up Shops!
Jennifer Nowicki has expertise in different kinds of teas with discerning shoppers looking for a little hands-on experience when she opens the doors of her pop-up shop, Cultivate Taste. Nowicki is a certified tea specialist, a designation she earned from the Specialty Tea Institute in York City in 2009. She is the only person in Wisconsin with this designation. Because of her education in tea, she has been invited twice by the People’s Republic of China to participate in world tea conferences. When she attended in March, learned about trends in the industry and toured tea fields.
She specializes in hand-made dog treats baked in small batches, including fancier iced treats and “pupcakes,” which are either 4-inch or mini cupcakes specially created for dogs. The inventory will include things like mugs, signs, candles, stationary (those are for pet owners), as well as bowls, collars, bow ties and dress-up accessories for dogs. She’ll stock gift baskets, custom Christmas stockings for dogs and unique items like treat-a-day doggie Advent calendars.
