October Retailer of the Month – Ultimate Impressions of Peosta, Iowa


We say it all the time, and of course, it’s true – we love our retailers.  We wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for you.  This month our Retailer of the Month is Ultimate Impressions, 742 Peosta Street, Peosta, IA (563-584-0018), a successful salon and spa operated by Shawn Kluesner for the past 14 years.

Shawn first received a piece of Pick Up Sticks from her husband as a gift.  She says people kept stopping her and asking her where she found her unique necklace – she finally decided it was time to carry the line.  When we asked her the best recommendation she could give other Pick Up Sticks retailers, she replied, “Just wear it!!! This jewelry sells itself.”

Shawn says she associates the words “Pick Up Sticks” with “different, fun and changeable.”  She likes that it adds something to the ambience of her salon – it gives customers something to look at and laugh over while they’re waiting to get their hair done.

Ultimate Impressions’ customers seem to buy more glitter and glam than anything else – they prefer the disco drops, glitter faceted glass charms, box charms and trinkets.  In fact Shawn says that they keep asking for more bling to wear to weddings and special events.

She keeps a necklace rack and shadow box loaded with jewelry on the front desk – when people are paying for their salon or spa services, they have a great excuse to buy a new necklace to go with their new look.  And if they already own a piece of Pick Up Sticks, they’re even more likely to buy something to add to their collection.

If you’re hanging out somewhere near Peosta, Iowa, this month be sure to stop in and congratulate Shawn on being chosen as our Retailer of the Month for October.  Admire her necklace and then buy one for yourself!
