Welcome to Blu Bear Bazaar!
But who are the people behind Blu Bear Bazaar? Well, let me tell you!
Who we are
Hi! My name is Molly. Some of you may be here because I run my own blog, Molly's Book Nook. If you're one of those people, thank you for extending your support to my shop! If you have no idea what I'm talking about, welcome new friend!
Long story short: I've been in the online book community for two years now. Once I started a blog, I did a lot of DIY graphics and discovered I really enjoy design. So I thought "how can I do this for a wider audience and not just on my blog" -- and duh! A shop, of course! And here we are. With the help of my wonderful husband, who even helped with the name, I opened Blu Bear Bazaar! While it's technically just one girl behind the computer designing, it's a husband and wife team keeping Blu Bear Bazaar going!
I know that Blu Bear Bazaar is a shop in a sea of bookish shops, but I think there are several things that make us stand out.
How we differ from the rest
1. Our designs will include references to all sorts of fandoms! Books, television, movies, music, you name it, it will come. I'm also determined to shine a light on some of the lesser known fandoms and indie books.
2. Our designs are created with real-life in mind. They will be designs that not only look good in bookstagram photos or on your bookshelf, they will also be functional and something that can be worn or used in the real world.
3. This is an independent shop. Meaning we have 100% control over prices, sales, discounts, etc. Meaning more opportunities for you to save money!
4. Lastly, most of our products are made right here in the USA. Unfortunately, not everything in the store is made in the USA (like phone cases, tanks, and tees) but we work hard on offering as many made in USA products we can. This is because it's important to us to create jobs and to not have our products made under inhuman situations (like sweat shops). However, we still try to offer brands that are responsible and committed to providing safe and fair work conditions in their global manufacturing facilities.
So, now that you know who we are, and you know what we think our shop stands for, get to know us a little more!
