Simple Treasures was founded in the year 2000 in the cozy little town of Corinne Utah. Its owner, Jennie Thacker, had handled the city's 4th of July vendors and decided to go into business for herself. From there business moved into Brigham City, and has been at the extraordinary Ogden's Union Station since 2003. Business has grown so much that Simple Treasures is expanding into an additional location in Farmington at the Legacy Events Center. Craft vendors are top notch and carefully recruited from all over the state. Specializing in unique, locally handmade items. Simple Treasures has experienced phenomenal growth every year. Since its conception in 2000, Simple Treasures has evolved from a tiny unknown, to being a favorite with boutique-goers from all over Utah.
Simple Treasures is fast becoming famous with its vendors as well because of the very heavy advertising investment that is put into each show. Jennie believes that when advertising dollars are invested, everyone will see the returns. Vendors also love the unique computerized check out system designed by Jennie's husband Paul for her first show in 2000. Since then, it has been refined and perfected into an awesome system for a central checkout show. Vendors can check sales and receive printouts at any time. At the end of each show, each vendor receives a detailed printout of sales, and most discrepancies can be fixed before payment is sent out.
Now in its 15th year, Simple Treasures is not only a boutique, it is an “experience”. With five shows a year this year, boutique-goers can find many unique gifts and anything to decorate their home, garden, and especially their Holiday at reasonable prices. With over 130 quality handmade crafters involved, the selection is phenomenal.
