Johnny Cupcakes

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–

Cupcake Crossbones Sticker

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…

    I LOVE Johnny Cupcakes. I had a sweet diy logo tshirt back in like 2005 and some turd exboyfriend stole it. I’m thinking a sticker would look awesome on my stand mixer though….

    We visited his Boston Store on Newbury Street last week. Picked up a tote bag, stickers, pins and a t-shirt. Everything came packaged in a cool black bakery box with cupcake/bones black tissue paper. They even threw in a lot of extra free goodies!
