Visit to the New "Make Meaning" Store at The Oaks Mall in Thousand Oaks is Fun!

BUMMER! Make Meaning announced it is closing its doors on February 7, 2016 (Super Bowl Sunday).

Make Meaning opened at The Oaks Shopping Mall on Monday, February 2013. Located in the outdoor shops area of the mall, upper level, south side, first store outside of the mall, Make Meaning offers seven creative experiences, including customized soap, candles, paper, ceramics, glass, jewelry and cake decorating.

This is quite a large store, open, light and airy, with an upbeat atmosphere. We stopped by over the weekend and checked it out. My son picked out a froggy piggy bank and the store was buzzing with others busy creating their own items.


The staff are called Associate Creativity Enthusiasts (ACE's), there to help you through the process. And that they were. I was able to just walk in and they kind of took over with my son while enjoyed watching him in his creative efforts. And they took care of the prep and the mess.


My son's froggy piggy bank masterpiece in it final stages. Make Meaning glazes it and fires it, then you pick it up in 4 days.


Neat selection of supplies to individualize your cake!


Or customize your own soap. Quite a unique concept and very well done.

Walk in and start creating something unique. Creative Experiences range in price from $8 to typically $25. No membership fees or admission costs. Specialty classes and events are also available. This place will be a very popular destination for birthday parties and other celebrations.
