By the late 1970's, personalizing gift shops started to appear from Texas to To Georgia. The trends began in craft stores and developed into a specialty store by the 1979. The attraction of the retail boutique was the artist in residence. Blank acrylic, plastic, and ceramic items line the shelves waiting to be decorated by the handpainters who were sitting in the center of the shop. This is how I started my art career. In 1978, while I was in college, I learned to use Wet Paint from Illinois Bronze, to hand paint dot lettering on almost any surface. I worked at NameDroppers and I was really good at it!
