Nota Bene Heroines: Lakey Peterson
Waxing Poetic loves a heroine. Sometimes she is out of a storybook or a historical figure, and sometimes, to our delight, she is of our modern day (and close by!).
A brave heart, and gracious spirit, our neighbor and friend Lakey Peterson is a heroine to all young athletes and an inspiration for everyone to give (and give your best). Amongst so many great achievements, Lakey is the 2012 ASP World Tour US Open of Surfing Champion, and her journey has recently been made into a movie, ZEROTO100 (premiering this Sunday at the Lobero Theater in Santa Barbara, Ca.)
A humanitarian and conservationist in her community and beyond, Lakey is an advocate for several worthy charities and is constantly doing her part: breaking boundaries, making a difference, and chasing her dream.
If you would like to help Lakey Peterson support the following charities, please follow the links below:

Welcome to Fan-Fare Gifts! We’re so happy to have you here. Have you had a favorite Waxing Poetic customer? I have had two favorite customers so far. Last year at Christmas Molly Quinn, the daughter in the show Castle visited our store. She loved Waxing Poetic and bought herself a Camp Bracelet. It was so much fun having her in the store. She is a great young lady. I had to show her off to all of our customers in the store and she was so sweet about it. That made for an exciting day during the crazy holiday season. Everyone was excited to have met her.
My second favorite customer is a lady who came in because she had heard about Waxing Poetic at work. She wanted to get herself a necklace with one initial. She was so excited to see the whole line. The next day she came in and bought her three boys’ birthstones. The following day she came in and bought a Baby Insignia for each son. The next day she came in and bought another charm to represent her husband. By the end of the week, she had nine charms on that necklace. She was so excited! We thought it was funny that she had so many charms on her necklace and she did too, but she loved it!
What are your favorite collections? We love the Square Insignia Charms, Camp Bracelets, and Storybook Charms.
What are your favorite pieces? Faith Camp Bracelet, Cross Dog Tag Pendant, and Peace Wing & a Prayer Charm
What are your customers’ favorite collections? Round Insignia Charms, Pastime Charms, and Storybook Charms
What are your customers’ favorite pieces? Peace Tonic Charm and Poetic Crosses
