Tonya Weakley is the owner and founder of Peddlers Den Inc. She is the primary artist behind “Makin’ A Scene”.
Peddlers Den Inc. is an independent rubber stamp store, as well as the manufacturer of the MAS collection in Somonauk, Illinois. Founded in 1998, they have adjusted to the expectations and needs of their customers, as well as difficult market shifts to emerge as a new form of local store. They offer stamps from many companies, papers, ink, accessories and tools. Therefore, if you need something that you don’t see, please ask.
MAKIN’ A SCENE TEAM
In June 2018 the “Makin’ A Scene” rubber stamp collection made its debut. Many of the images are hand drawn by Tonya. The second part of the team is the other artists who draw (create) the images. The third, and most visible part, is the stampers who utilize the images to create the sample scenes.
OUR BUSINESS MODEL
The re-invention and new business model includes limited walk-in hours. We are open on days we are pressing rubber, and closed when we are at expos, retreats and other events. Because we are in a small, rural region, it is difficult for the majority of customers to visit frequently. Because of this, private classes and parties are also available by appointment, making the commute a social event.
Our business model is still evolving, and is subject to change as we evaluate the expectations of our customers and the economics. If you and your friends are planning to visit, we recommend that you call ahead to be sure that you are not disappointed!
