Hi! I'm Andrea, the founder of Sweet Bettys Bakery. I grew up in Southern Indiana and moved to LA after college. During my time there I had the opportunity to work many fun and interesting jobs. All the while, I was developing my baking skills producing sweet treats for the general public as well as companies and celebrities. After a sudden change at the comedy club where I had worked for 12 years, I found myself back in Indiana. Missing LA culture inspired me to open Sweet Bettys Bakery, an avant garde boutique and bakery with a vintage flair. The store will be opening in early March, but due to red tape and budget constraints, the Sweet Bettys ambiance is in jeopardy.
Sweet Bettys needs at least $3000 of your dough to refurbish a 1950's kitchen display, repurpose salvaged wooden doors and reproduce a vintage "Fresh Baked Goods" lighted sign. I'm asking friends, family, and fans of Sweet Bettys Bakery for "dough-nations". To thank you for helping me I am offering Sweet Bettys merchandise and gift cards. Your "dough-nation" will help give new llife to discarded treasures and create the atmosphere that is Sweet Bettys Bakery.
My Grandmother and Great-Grandmother inspired my love of baking, so it seemed only natural that retro decor would be a key ingredient in the bakery.
These are just a few of the vintage Youngstown cabinets that need a coat of aqua paint and some TLC before they take center stage as a display kitchen in the bakery.
We salvaged over a dozen of these beautiful old wooden doors that will be repurposed as retail displays. After shelves and pink-striped awnings are added, they will hold an eclectic mix of merchandise that reflects my love of baking, vintage style, and LA culture.
My greatest wish for this campaign is to be able to reproduce the fabulous "Fresh Baked Goods" lighted sign pictured below. I fell in love with it right away and knew it would be the perfect way to add warmth and ambiance to the space. But, since it's not essential to the bakery like the oven or the counter, it's been squeezed out of the budget :(
Your "dough-nation" would be a great way to say Happy Birthday and Happy New Year! (and help me avoid another birthday like this)
Be sure to come back and check out the Update page...I'll keep you posted on the progress at 5600 E Virginia.
