Tempus Cards & Gifts is the result of the father and daughter collaborative effort of Craig and Adrean Weidman.
Craig had been Vice President of Finance for a Philadelphia food manufacturer that was acquired by a Fortune 100 company in 2017. He continued for an additional year after the acquisition assisting with integration activities. Considering what would be the next step in his career, Craig explored the possibility of starting his own business. When the potential opportunity to open a retail store in Peddler's Village in Bucks County, Pennsylvania presented itself, he began brainstorming with his daughter, Adrean, about the possibility of the two of them going into business together.
Adrean had several years of experience in retail sales and supervision prior to the birth of her second child, after which she took time away from full-time employment to focus on her children. Her older child had reached school age and Adrean was ready to take on her next career challenge at the time Craig approached her about the possibility of starting a business. After much research and planning, the two decided to move forward on what ultimately became Tempus Cards & Gifts.
They particularly enjoy finding unique products from small, independent suppliers whenever possible. If the supplier is local or regional, that's even better. They do not see themselves as simply selling products, but rather as providing an experience that brings joy to the lives of others. Their vision for Tempus Cards & Gifts is to be a fresh expression of a card, stationery, and gift shop that provides an exceptional customer experience with appeal to both older and younger generations alike by combining a sense of nostalgia with a progressive vibe.
