Each year certain Bonnie's Boardwalk Originals pieces are retired.  If you have a favorite piece, then we encourage you to go ahead and order it while it is still available.
The pieces of Victorian Art created by Bonnie Barrett and the other artists at Bonnie's Boardwalk Studios are known as Bonnie's Boardwalk Originals or just Boardwalk Originals.  Over the years, Boardwalk Original pieces often become family treasures and heirlooms.  Many people collect them and certain pieces, particularly those hand painted and retired, also become popular collectors' items.  The truly artistic nature of each Boardwalk Originals pieces contributes greatly to their popularity and value.
For over 20 years until the Summer of 2006, most Boardwalk Originals pieces were hand painted works of art crafted in the United States by Bonnie and her artists.  Today, Bonnie's designs are digitally painted in the United States using high quality machinery that paints each piece just as Bonnie originally designed it.
Bonnie's Boardwalk Originals pieces begin as pieces of wood that have been cut to resemble characters from Holidays, Storybook & other cultural traditions. The wooden piece is then painted by special equipment.  On certain pieces additional specialized procedures are performed to produce a natural slightly time worn look and other desired effects (e.g. glitter on certain pieces, particularly Christmas pieces).
Most Boardwalk Originals pieces today come with both a stand and a hanger so the piece can either be stood up as a Dummy Board or hung on a wall as as wall art.
