Update | 7.10.2014 – Two Peas, Shutterfly, Shimelle, and more!

Two Peas in a Bucket announced today that they will stay open for sales and content viewing until July 24th:

Due to the overwhelming response to our clearance sale, we will be shipping orders through the end of the month and have decided to keep the site operational thru 7/24/2014 and expect the last order to go out the door on the 25th.

The extended time gives the site’s users extra time to use the export tool developed by to save their galleries by transferring their images and descriptions to the gallery. Click here for more information on how to use the gallery export tool.

As the summer product releases approach for the second half of the year, some companies are clearing out the warehouse to make room for them. Elle’s Studio is holding a summer warehouse sale. Unlike most companies, which usually sell “grab bag” style boxes, Elle’s Studio is selling inventory by the individual item through their online store so their fans can buy just exactly the items they want. The sale will last until 7/21 or while supplies last.
Bloomberg reported on July 2nd that Shutterfly has hired Qatalyst Partners LLC, an investment bank, to assist it in attempting to find a buyer for itself. Shutterfly has been a public company since 2006, and owns several other brands including Tiny Prints and Borrow Lenses. The company’s stock was down 24% on the year before the announcement, on fears that the company was in danger of posting its first annual loss as a public company. The stock spiked after the news, and is still trading significantly higher this week.

Good News for Two Peas In A Bucket Customers

Two new announcements will make the closure of Two Peas In A Bucket a bit easier on the site’s legions of fans.

On June 10th, Two Peas quietly opened an Etsy store carrying their signature flair and wood items. The store currently has 176 flairs and nearly 100 wood items listed for sale. This is great news for fans of the company’s edgy, graphic style. (Note to self: Definitely must order this flair badge for scrapping my 10 hour flight home from Germany in January while deathly ill with the flu.)

For those wishing to preserve their content from the Two Peas gallery, there is even better news: has created an automated tool to import your Two Peas gallery into a account! The tool preserves publication dates, title and description of the post, as well as importing the image.

To use the importer, click this link after first logging in to your account. You’ll need to know your Pea Number from your Two Peas account to make it work.

For those waiting to place orders at Two Peas hoping for heavier discounting as the sale progresses, you may be out of luck. The site’s virtual shelves appear almost bare in most brands, although there is still some stock in the American Crafts family of brands due to the large proportion of inventory of the company’s products the store was carrying before the closure announcement.


Breaking: Two Peas In A Bucket Closing Down

2 Peas Logo

Earlier this afternoon, online retailer Two Peas in a Bucket announced that they are closing down effective July 10th.

All sales on the site are final effective immediately. Gift certificates may only be redeemed through July 4th, 2014 11:59:59 p.m. CST. Returns and price adjustments are no longer being accepted.

Access to classes, workshops, bookmarks and gallery items will cease when Two Peas closes for good on July 10th. Peamail will also be available through that date. Access to posting on the company’s message boards has already closed, although they seem to be available for viewing.

At the same time as the company announced the closure of its operations, it also announced the immediate closure of its affiliate program. The company was a pioneer in affiliate marketing in the scrapbooking industry, which is now a widespread practice.

Wisconsin-based Two Peas In A Bucket was formed in 1999 by Jeffrey and Kristina White. The Whites were a continuous presence at Two Peas, although it changed hands several times while under their leadership. In May 2006, the Whites sold the company to Canadian media company Kaboose, Inc. for a reported $600,000 in cash plus additional considerations. A little over two years later, in Sept. 2008, Kaboose sold Two Peas to Leisure Arts (terms not disclosed). In 2012, the company returned to the apparent ownership of the Whites through a Delaware-based LLC called It’s Like This LLC.
