Two Peas in a Bucket, or Two Peas, is a one-stop shop for scrapbooking products. The company was launched by the husband and wife team of Jeffrey and Kristina in early 1999 with the aim to bring new and trendy scrapbooking products to the Internet. The company prides itself in being family-centric, and is made up of a close-knit group of family and friends.
Two Peas is based out of Middleton, Wisconsin, and operates from a warehouse, interestingly painted four different shades of green. This warehouse is the hub of the business, shipping thousands of scrapbooking products to more than 150 countries every week. Each time a customer receives a product from Two Peas, they are greeted with a special message to inspire creativity.
The core idea behind Two Peas in a Bucket was to offer single sheet papers for scrapbooking. Whereas larger, more established retailers only offered patterned paper in packages, Two Peas realized a scrapbooker may only need one sheet, and started offering single sheets of patterned paper. Two Peas was the first online retailer to do this, and the patterned paper products are still the company's highest selling item, making up the bulk of its sales and inventory.
