The Buckets family brings a little fun, funky and fabulous to the Penn township area. Our goal is to provide affordable and unique items for everyone on your gift giving list or even for yourself. Stop in and visit our store where we treat everyone like family!
It was 1982, and I was six years old. Any chance I would get, I would set up a store with household items and use my Fisher-Price cash register and my parents as customers. (My dear parents played countless hours of store with me.)That year, I had asked Santa for one and only one Christmas gift. A real cash register! Guess, what? Santa granted my wish and from that moment on, my dream was to one day own my own store!
Why are we called Buckets?
Our last name is Tarbuck. When Mike and I got married, my relatives started calling us the "Buckets". When we started having children, they became known as the Lil' Buckets. The name stuck and now we welcome everyone to our Boutique.
Dreams do come true
My kiddos were growing up and in school all day. One day, my husband looked at me and said, "If you want to follow your dreams and open a store...now is the time to do it!" Every emotion ran through my body...excitement, happiness, nervousness, scared silliness...but with his encouragement and support, Buckets Boutique became a reality in 2013.
Buckets truly is a family affair. Mike, my husband has made many of the in-store displays. My kiddos have helped to unpack, tag and take social media pictures. My immediate family and my in-laws can often be seen in-store or behind the scenes lending a helping hand whenever needed.
