We are a unique gift shop that caters to visitors from the SF Bay Area who stop by on their way to experience amazing adventures, including visiting Yosemite, Bear Valley Ski resort, and Wine Tasting. Our theme in Calavaras county is Frogs, and three years ago we opened a Wine Bar called the Tipsy Frog (image attached here.) Our character Tipsy is loved by all. He is smooth, sophisticated, handsome, and most of all loves wine! We are opening this new gift shop connected directly to the Tipsy Frog Wine Bar. Our vision for the Lilypad Gifts logo is to create a female version of Tipsy, his girlfriend. She is also smooth and sophisticated, very fashionable, and loves gifts and giving! She should be the same type of Frog as Tipsy, but definitely female, with cute eyes and eyelashes. We don't want her to be too over the top or cartoon, but lifelike, a perfect mate for Tipsy. Maybe she is holding up jewelry, a shopping bag or something that could be a gift, you decide! We also picture her sitting or standing on a Lilypad, or have it worked into the logo somehow. We'd also like to use the same font as the Tipsy Frog.
We will carry a wide range of products that are constantly changing, so each time customers return to the shop it's a new adventure as they explore for treasures. Combine that with a large volume of inventory and it also becomes very entertaining. Categories of merchandise we expect to carry include:
• Wine & Wine Accessories - Wines by the bottle and openers, decanters, preservers, glasses, wine racks, etc. We will have a separate ABC license (already on hold for us) for this space that allows sale of beer/wine in bottles (off-sale) and permits minors to be in the space.
• Food - Crackers, preserves, cheese, nuts, spreads, spices, mixes, marinades, dried fruits, candies, chocolate, tea, soda, pasta, etc.
• Gifts - Books, cards, Copperopolis branded items, gift bags, gift baskets, knick-knacks, magnets, party supplies, etc.
• Holiday - Seasonal items that represent Valentine’s Day, Easter, 4th of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.
• Home Decor - Candles, art work, lanterns, pillows, picture frames, diffusers, ornaments, vases, mirrors, rugs, blankets, etc.
• Housewares - Plates, glasses, bowls, utensils, serving trays, chargers, napkins, tablecloths, cookware, tea sets, cutlery, cookie jars, etc.
• Jewelry - Rings, necklaces, pendants, earrings, bracelets, charms, watches, cuff links, belts, scarfs, purses, fitbits, etc.
• Clothing - Copperopolis branded tee shirts, sweatshirts, polos, tank tops, casual shirts, hats, visors, etc.
