Does the name Johnny Cupcakes ring a bell to anyone? Well if it doesn’t, it should and it will.
Johnny Cupcakes all started when a young man named Johnny was given the name Johnny Cupcakes while working at Newbury Comics. He used this nickname as inspiration for designing t-shirts with the name ‘Johnny Cupcakes’ on them, obviously the t-shirts had Cupcakes on them! (click here to read more about his story)
He started selling these t-shirts out of the back of his trunk, and people went wild for them. And people are STILL wild for them. He has 2 east coast shops, one in Hull Massachusetts and one in Boston Massachusetts. He also has a brand new store that just opened up on the west coast in LA.
And now he is opening what is called a Pop-Up Shop, in Martha’s Vineyard where I currently reside. The store will have special Martha’s Vineyard theme t-shirts and other goodies. The shop will be open from Friday August 13th til Sunday August 22nd at the Dock Street Diner, 2 Dock Street in Edgartown Massachusetts. (click here to read more about the pop-up shop)
He was also on the island this past weekend at the Oak Bluffs Harbor Festival selling all of great goodies. I went and visited him and picked my self up some stickers and pins. It was funny how I came to know that he was going to be on the island this past weekend, I was driving to work on Friday and saw the Johnny Cupcakes van driving right past me, and I said, ” Mhhh, I wonder what he is doing here.” So as soon as I got out of work I got onto my trust worthy FaceBook and found Johnny Cupcakes Fan Page and asked Johnny why he was here. He proceeded to tell me and I proceeded to go visit!
Here are some of the items that I bought–
My old landlord is actually friends with his Aunt, 6 degrees of separation to Johnny Cupcakes! She told me this one day when I told her my not so secret obsession with Cupcakes. And since then I have been keeping an eye on his work.
And here are a few other Items that I LOVE and plan on owning someday…
