If you’ve ever wanted to create a truly unique gift or had an idea for a pottery piece that you couldn’t find in stores, Wasilla-based Just Add Paint is a perfect place to go. Just Add Paint makes being creative easy; you simply pick out your piece, paint it, and let them do the rest!
Just Add Paint opened in June of 2015 following months of hard work for owner Noelle Umbarger. After attending a Starting a Business Class at the Alaska Small Business Development Center in Wasilla, Umbarger returned to work with Julie Nolen and was able to take advantage of Nolen’s experience as a certified Quickbooks Proadvisor. Together, Nolen and Umbarger researched the best point of sale system for the business and worked through the Quickbooks program to make it an easy and reliable way to record her income and expenses.
“Julie with the SBDC was awesome! Very helpful, lots of advice and one of the best reference tools I could have asked for in starting a new company,” said Umbarger. “She has had an answer to all my questions and is still a useful tool I have been able to utilize even after startup. It makes me feel comfortable that I can still call her when I have issues and cant find solutions.”
Just Add Paint is open seven days a week and is available for parties and mobile studios (where they bring the studio to the location of your choosing!). Learn more by visiting their website or checking out their Facebook page.
