Drumroll please for our first featured artist of 2021:
ArtByIv aka Ivey Stallings!
If she sounds familiar you’ve seen her work many times with us. She painted the murals at our downtown and Hampstead shops, she’s been bleach dying shirts and hats like crazy and she’s already designed a couple of stickers for us last year. Oh, and she helps manage our downtown shop. She also designed our 2021 Artist Series graphic. There’s basically nothing she can’t do. As with all of our Artist Series designs this year we paid Ivey directly for each of her designs and also made a donation in her honor to the charity of her choice: the lowercase leaders.
Holy cow, it’s 2021! We’ve got some fun tricks up our sleeves for this year and one thing we’re really excited about is our 2021 Boombalatti’s Artist Series run of custom stickers. We invited twelve of our favorite Wilmington artists to design some new stickers for us and we can’t be more excited to launch them every month this year. Stickers will be available at all shops and online for $1 each.
Sooo… How exactly does this work?
Hey, we’re glad you asked! Shipping ice cream is a little more complicated than shipping an ice cream hat, but no worries. We’ve got this!
First, we only ship our ice cream out on Tuesdays. So when you place your order make a mental note that your pints will be leaving our shop the following Tuesday. We pack your pints into a reusable foam cooler and pack in enough dry ice to keep everything fully frozen for the journey. Once you (or a friend, family member, coworker, perfect stranger) receive the ice cream you’ll want to get it into your freezer to warm up. Nope, not a typo. The dry ice will freezer your ice cream to such a low temperature that your freezer will actually help things get back up to a scoopable temperature. And as for the dry ice? Don’t touch it with your bare hands! Dry ice is so incredibly cold that it can burn you. Just leave the bag of dry ice in a safe location (free from pets or small hands) and the dry ice will sublimate (turn directly into a gas.) See, we told you there was nothing to it.
