The Turquoise Top Hat

Inspiring Creativity, One Sign at a Time!

Our story begins in 2015 with a great love of DIY and all things painted! My mom and I set out on our creative journey by finding and flipping old furniture and decor and selling our painted pieces at vintage markets around Michigan. We often roped my sister in joining us on our travels, and it truly became a fun, family affair! 

One of our favorite things to do is paint and distress wood signs, and the more signs I made the more requests I received from friends and family to make custom signs. Being a teacher at heart (an elementary teacher, to be exact), my first instinct has always been to show others the joy of making something themselves and find their inner creativity! In the fall of 2015, I began doing in-home sign painting parties for friends and after a few months, I had gained interest from local wineries and businesses. I was astonished at how many people were interested in this little side hustle of mine!   

By March of 2016, I had booked so many parties that I couldn’t keep up! I decided it was time to pursue this passion full-time and I left my teaching position to grow The Turquoise Top Hat. As we continued to expand and meet so many amazing people, we decided it was time to open our own painting space. In June of 2017, we opened our Stevensville workshop and boutique and have had so much fun making this space our own! You can find us there teaching workshops, creating colorful things and enjoying the company of our customers (right near the shores of Lake Michigan)! 

Our business has grown exponentially with the help of all of the amazing clients, customers, friends, and family who trust our creative process and endeavors, and we couldn’t be more thankful for each and every one of you! We are a small, family-run business, and your love and support mean more to us than any amount of money ever could. 

Thanks for helping us live our small-business dreams!  

-Taylor

Urban Garage Market

Urban Garage Market started when a Maker & Picker had a dream of having a space to house all of the collected goodness that was found.  After years of working in the family garage it was time to set some boundaries between loving the work....and staying married!
