One day a couple of years back, we were enjoying some beverages and dreaming about our future life plans. She looked at me and said, “Someday I’m going to adopt a Weimaraner” and I said, “Isn’t that the dog that looks kind of blue?” We looked at each other and said, “JaguarBlu! That’s a great name for a business!” And we got to work building our dream.
Our company started in 2013 with an art debut and then progressed to local and regional art shows. We were getting out there, showing our art and meeting people but not moving the needle on the growth of our company.
Dream it, Believe it, Become it
In June of 2017 my Dad passed and a little voice told me it was time to take that next step toward growing our company. After discussing our options, we decided it was time to “just do it” and take our company to another level. We opened our first JaguarBlu store in Stillwater MN on September 2, 2017.
The artist is the heart of our company. When they are successful we are successful. Our store is filled with goods made by artists in America. Our artists are from all over the country that we have met or that have found their way to us.
Because of our love of art and respect for our American artisans, we also want to share their passion and “story” behind every piece. It’s JaguarBlu’s own “art appreciation” that we speak to every day.
We have been blessed by landing at 317 Main Street South in Stillwater and by all the wonderful people we have met along the way. We plan to open more stores in destination towns, like Stillwater, and to up our game with our website as you are enjoying here. Things are going well so far and there is a strong plan in place.
We thank you for listening to our story and for supporting our artists and art in general.
Keep dreaming — they do come true!
