About The Peculiar Planet
The Peculiar Planet (formerly Planet Cute) emerged from founder Ariel’s dreams to have her own store, full of her favorite things.
An avid crafter and connoisseur of all things cute, Ariel began her journey into small business with her own jewelry and accessories line, Kawaii As Ari. Focusing on kitsch, sparkle, nostalgia and a good helping of tongue in cheek, cuteness enthusiasts ate up her designs. But she knew it could be even bigger than just her own art.
Always admiring her artist and crafter friends’ alike. She often wondered “What if a shop could exist where I not only sold my creations, but they could be alongside the amazing things of other independent artists as well?”
“And what if that store also had iconic brands of cuteness such as Sanrio and Tokidoki?” she pontificated.
“Eureka!” she shouted! And from a puff of glitter and pom poms, Planet Cute was born.Who Are We?
