Huephoria Martini Glasses Spotlight Review


 
I love Huephoria! They have the most amazing glasses in all shapes and forms and some traditional and some kooky, but always in fun and that is what is important at the end of the day. I was so very fortunate to get one of their Martini glasses with the Daisy design but my camera would not take the picture. It kept showing me holding the camera in the glass glaring back so I gave up. I did get one of it laying down on a towel just so you can see how the ball looks on the glass:

 
So, just imagine that little ball on a Martini Glass and there you have it! Follow that link and you can play around with all the balls until you find the one that is right for you. Because several things are gonna happen: First, Huephoria has been kind enough to offer the winner of the Mother's Day Event that starts on May 1st and ends on the 18th, a set of 4 of their own Martini Glasses. Then I have to tell or show you a sale that is going on right now:

 
Buy One Get One FREE on all HuePhoria Martini Glasses and Enter coupon code aprilbogo Valid thru this Friday, April 27th!

So, all in all, I think you are getting a pretty good deal, don't you? Buy one and get one free is pretty darn good and then if you are lucky enough to win the other 4 you will have a total of 8 Martini Glasses. Now, I am not at all crazy about martini's myself but I figure you can also use them for Margarita's and for wine. Why not? Who says a certain glass can only be used for a certain thing?

I know you remember back in January when Chinese New Year was going on they gave us those really cute little salt & pepper shakers away and I still have mine. They are the cutest little things and I get all kinds of compliments on them. Just to refresh your memory so that you know they don't just do glasses:
 
I guess what I love most about Huephoria is the colors! They just go for them and it all just seems to come together, doesn't it? I hope that you will look around while you are there and find lots of interesting things that will excite you enough to at least want one or two really cool items sitting on your kitchen counter or wherever, because you will definitely get the compliments when you do!

I think this is about the coolest cake stand or serving tray I have ever seen! You won't have to worry about it not matching anything because it has all the colors imaginable and it will go with absolutely everything!

Here is what I found under their About Us section:
HuePhoria's two Syracuse, NY artists, Jen and Lisa, met at a "Mom's Coffee" in 1998. While staying home to raise their children, they both had found outlets to feed their creative souls... and to keep their sanity. Their common interests would eventually come in very handy for their future endeavor: throwing fun and spontaneous parties, experiencing retail therapy outings and, of course, painting anything they could get their hands on. The two quickly became great friends and decided to paint furniture and glassware to try to make some extra cash. Lisa and Jen began selling their HuePhoria hand painted goods at local fundraisers and through word of mouth to get their hobby-turned-business into motion.

The HuePhoria "ball" concept was born in 1999 out of necessity. The wine glass supply in their cupboards seemed to be dwindling (probably from the fun and spontaneous parties) and they saw this as an opportunity to paint some new ones for themselves that would be much more creative than the glasses they were seeing in stores. Not only that, the idea of each person having their own unique ball design on their glass would solve the ongoing dilemma of remembering who's drink was who's! Lisa and Jen got to work, painting each glass and baking them in their ovens, and selling them to the loyal customer base they had built locally. (Unfortunately for their families it was about the only baking being done in their kitchens!)

After selling more than 5,000 glasses in 2 years, they hit a point where could not keep up with demand, nor could they offer the glasses to retail stores at a wholesale price that would keep them in business. (Not to mention that they were both going blind from the tiny detail painting!) In 2005, grassroots HuePhoria took a leap...they partnered with dear friend Kathy (a NH businesswoman) to help jump start HuePhoria glassware into mass production.
