After teaching for over 20 years, former educators Bruce and Jeri Wieber decided to go into the craft business—and for 16 years, they have been traveling all around the tri-state area, selling personalized baubles.
This holiday season, you can go visit their kiosk—"Wieber's Warehouse"—located inside the Cross County Square Mall in Yonkers. The couple, from Warwick, will happily personalize an assortment of items, from holiday ornaments to picture frames.
"People like to show others that they care, and it's nice when you can have your own name on something special," said Bruce Wieber who hand-crafts many of the wares himself.
The Wieber's also have piggy banks, dry erase boards and pencil holders—a far-cry from their early days at the malls in Paramus, NJ, when they only sold a few items out of a push cart.
"We can do just about anything people want in just a few minutes—and whether it's the kid or a grandfather on your shopping list, we have something for everyone," Wieber added.
