License Plate Canister

21 years ago the travel bug bit me and I have never been the same. I strongly believe that life was meant for good friends and good adventures, and there is nothing like a road trip to bring the two together.

Hopping in the car with no destination in mind makes for the perfect day. Rummaging yard sales, sifting through junk yards, and exploring vintage consignment stores is my passion.

My name is Nicole O’Brien, the creator and nomad behind Unique Pl8z. A few years ago I was on a mission to create a gift for someone special. That gift needed to reflect all the wonderful times we had spent laughing, dreaming, and traveling together. A handmade art piece that celebrated the uniqueness of our journey was my vision. I created a sign using license plates from states we had travelled, and from that one gift, Unique Pl8z was born.

Unique Pl8z is so much more than just license plate art.  It is a small business who's mission has evolved into empowering U.S. Veterans and Military spouses through employment.  Unique Pl8z is proud to create handcrafted art and home accessories that is as unique as the veterans that have made them.
I invite you to throw on a good road trip tune, grab a cup of coffee (or margarita), and take a look through my shop. If any piece resonates with you message me and we can begin designing your own special piece of art. Think back to all of your favorite trips and places and I will be sure to include license plates from those very places in your unique design.

Big changes and new partnerships are on the horizon and I would love to have you join me.

I welcome you to sign up for my newsletter so you can be among the first to know about all the exciting places Unique Pl8z will be going, great new product lines we will be releasing, and amazing partnerships we will be forming.

Remember, it’s not about the destination. It’s about the journey.

Happy Traveling,
