All merchandise found in BoP's home+hobby shop is certified by management.
What does this mean?
1. It is of high quality; and we expressively promote merchandise made in the U.S.A. We personally use what we sell; and we have very high standards.
2. We cannot guarantee you won't find our selection of home + hobby products on amazon.com, but we certainly try to curate items that cannot be purchased on this online platform. In our personal shopping experience, when we order from amazon we are now 98% of the time disappointed by promises not kept and very dismayed by the amount of packaging we must dispose of.
3. "Stuff" is a dismal word in our store's vernacular. Because we are also a bookstore, and therefore appreciate all kinds of vocabularies, we ask too of our customers to seek out the word describing their purchases. What do we mean? BoP believes we live in a time and society when "too much" is often the watchword of our culture. Therefore we are discerning about what we sell; and hope that we provide our customer with well-selected, priced and quality merchandise.
