Sherry and John Petersik of Young House Love, DIY blogging wunderkinds based here in Richmond, have released a line of products now available nationally at Target stores.

The products range from towel racks to door knobs – tiny adorable octopuses (octopi or Octopodes?) to classic fake-crystal accents. It’s perfect for anyone who just sunk $70K into a church hill fixer-upper and wants to support a locally based business.

The Petersiks’ web presence is vast – 111K Facebook followers, over 1 million follows on Pinterest, and 10K subscribers on their Youtube Channel, featuring videos of the couple’s dog, their adorable child, and of course their DIY projects:

This all started back in 2007 with a passion for DIY projects – congrats to the local success story, and head on over to Target to check out the product line.
