ideas for a store name needed

A store's name is so important.
My sister, Doreen, is opening up a little shop right in her town called
Fancy That!
I love that name!
She will be selling cupcake wrappers, plates, tiered trays and cake plates
sprinkles, toppers and creative things galore.
It's all about cupcakes and joy!

She needs a little help though, and I thought my blog friends would have 
ideas for the "subtitle" to her business.
She needs something that wouldn't sound as industrial as
"Fancy That, Cupcake Supplies and Gifts"
...rather, something cute, sweet and memorable.

I would just love to pass along some great ideas to her.
I know you are all so very creative and those great ideas will flow like a river!

Doreen misses blogging and visiting you as often as she used to. 
 I know she will be so grateful for your help.

Thank you all so much for being such beautiful friends.

Added information about the store from Doreen:
{"I plan to have beautiful cupcake wrappers, baking cups, embellishments, 
and then cupcake pedestals, stands and other cupcake related gift items.
It's so fun to find sweet little things to fancy up the cupcakes."}

What a great name. I'm sure you'll get some great suggestions...Usually I can come up with something but am kind of rushed. All I can think of is "Build-A-Cake" (like BuildABear) which is actually more like a name than subtitle now that I think about it. I'll keep thinking.

OH MARIA!!! Dearest, THANK YOU FOR VISITING IN THE MIDDLE OF this first week of gearing up again for school! I go back this Wednesday and I just now here at home doing some last minute drawings for my portfolio! But teacher meetings, inservices and classroom prep await us this week!!!! You are busy with your kitchen and school prep too...well, how wonderful for your sister! I LOVE: FANCY THAT! Hmmmmm....for a subtitle, "Have your cupcake and eat it too." - how about that?


Julie Harward said...

What fun for her..I love the name already.. Fancy That..she could use it in the other things she is selling too..Fancy cakes, Fancy liners..Fancy spreaders..Fancy sprinkles...etc. Good luck to her! ;D

Hi Maria,

Wow, to think about all the excitement. I really love the name Doreen picked, and I do love the sweet petits she will be selling. Does she open up a webshop too? Or perhaps later.. Well, I cannot come up with something this very moment but I am going to keep it in mind and trust that one fine moment something will flash into my mind. I'll get back to you on this post.
Off to congratulate Doreen.
Enjoy these last days before school starts, sweet Maria. Love xx

How about:

Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice... about:

Favors and Flavors to Order.....oh, a little too alliteration happy there....

I will keep thinking!! Anita

Maria said...

You are all so sweet ♥

An area cupcake shop recently changed its name to Cream and Flutter...I thought that was so cute. I think your sis should make sure the subtitle tells the story of what is in the shop. How about-"Everything you need for beautiful baking"

It's me said...

What a nice nasme for a shop !!...enjoy your new school year love from

Doreen said...

Thanks Maria for this great post and thanks to all for your comments, suggestions and good luck wishes. I plan to have beautiful cupcake wrappers, baking cups, embellishments, and then cupcake pedestals, stands and other cupcake related gift items. It's so fun to find sweet little things to fancy up the cupcakes. I do not plan to do any baking though (just to test out my products at home ☺ ) . I have missed blogging and hope to be back in the not too distant future.

Coming up with a name or a title is always the toughest part for me Maria. I love the name - just perfect. I'll try just because it is you asking: Fancy That - everything to celebrate.

What fun! I do adore cupcakes. I wish your sister all the best.

You must be so proud to have a sister like Doreen . You can enjoy all this with her . She is so lucky to have a sister like you ...helping her out with this question !
I am thinking of all the people who will visit this shop for happy bakings and to be SURPRISED .
Maria you will be going back to school and this long long summer of 2011 has brought you all the new energy and inspiration you need.
I'll be thinking of you !

Maria Dear,
You truly are a breath of fresh air in my busy life. THANK YOU FOR YOUR sweet visit! I have missed you ever so much. Gearing up for fall and ordering Christmas goodness...kinda hard, as we in Abbotsford are just now enjoying some HOT weather.
WOW...congrats to your sister. What a perfectly wonderful shop idea!
Hmmm...will have to think on this one. I LOVE Anita's idea!

But you my dear, must be preparing to greet your little lambs soon. When does school start for you?
Am in the middle of packing for the last Fishing getaway of the summer...a delightful little cabin in the woods( with NO cellphone or internet.) Just Bill, the dog, our boat and a fine book...YIPPEEEEE!
Savor the last moments of your vacation...and SMILE ON...xoxo...R

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

My precious Maria....we all, YOU, Koralee, MOI, so many of us are gearing up for another year that GOD has made...I go back on Monday for a ton of meetings and then the prep...I am scared to face my ROOM! I know it will be so dusty!!!!

I am happy that we all have each other. If there is anything that I have learned this summer is the strength we have TOGETHER. I will be thinking of you all as we step into the world again to try to make our mark and help others find their mark.
