Recently we joined the Wyoming First Program that is run by the Wyoming Business Council. The purpose Wyoming First is to assist companies located in this state with identification and promotion of their Wyoming made products or substantially enhance products and services. Wyoming is a small state population wise but Wyoming is a very strong state financially and they are all about helping business within the state prosper. You would be surprised at all the small companies in this state.
Last month we were contacted about our products and invited to provide additional information about what we do. Wyoming Made wanted to highlight our little company on KGWN News in Cheyenne, Wyoming. We were flattered and so we supplied them with the requested information. Below is the clip from the show were they highlighted our little Jackson Hole Company. Take a moment and check it out…
Wyoming Made, Made in Jackson Hole…
At a time when “MADE IN THE USA” is practically an anomaly there are still a few small businesses out there trying to create new products and services that can boast the “MADE IN THE USA” title. Wyoming is a state that actually has quite a large number of small entrepreneurs that craft products from their home or small business and sell them to the public both within the borders of Wyoming and abroad. One place that highlights these Wyoming based businesses is the Wyoming Business Council and they list many of these businesses on their website www.wyomingfirst.org.
The Wyoming First Program is a way to identify and showcase great products made in Wyoming. All of the companies listed on this website call Wyoming home and are proud of the quality they represent. Wyoming First provides you with the opportunity to shop and locate products that are made within this state. This post today is no exception. I want to highlight a member of my family that is doing just that – designing and making products for sale right here in Jackson Hole. Blaire joins others here in Jackson that also make and sell their products though retail outlets and their websites.
Blaire Jennings is a college student in her Junior year at CU Boulder in Colorado and she is studying Digital Art, Studio Art and Communications. Blaire has always been a creative soul and she loves painting, shaping pottery, photography, pretty much design of any kind. Over the past year Blaire along with her mother Peyton have created a unique line of hand crafted jewelry all made by hand right here in Jackson Hole. Her latest creation is a line of wooden feather like earrings featuring very high quality sterling silver findings. These whimsical feather like earrings are being marketed under the name “307 Wear” and they are gaining in their popularity with locals and others living outside of the state of Wyoming. “307 Wear” simply translates into “Wyoming Wear” as the area code of 307 is unique to the state of Wyoming. In addition to earrings Blaire is adding some of her necklace designs and currently has many new ideas under development.
What started out as an idea has started to blossom into a small business opportunity for Blaire and she is starting to make some headway. These earrings are truly unique and one of a kind. They are crafted from woods such as Walnut, Maple, Ironwood, Bubinga and other wood species. Each pair is hand crafted and no two pairs are exactly a like. They retail from $39.00 a pair up to $69.00 a pair depending on the wood species and sterling silver findings. If you would like to find out more about these whimsical feather like earrings check out our website at www.tetonmarketing.com and see what Blaire currently has to offer. Blaire is looking for potential retail outlets that may want to carry some of her designs. She especially would like to find retail outlets here in her home state of Wyoming in addition to all other parts of the U.S.A.
