Meet The Hoptimist!

We get excited about everything we sell, but The Hoptimist has taken us to a whole new level of excitement. It's not an overstatement to say that The Hoptimist's arrival in our lives has inspired us, made us laugh, and reminded us of the best things to come from human creativity.

All this from just some molded plastic and a spring.

With a gentle tap, these Danish creature begin to bounce with an infectious, undeniable glee. And we're perfectly happy to tell you: The Hoptimist serves no purpose other than to give you an instant burst of that feeling.

The Hoptimist encourages us to believe in the best. And he serves as a reminder that we can always choose to Feel the Joy. We have always tried to keep this in mind when selecting things to sell in our shop, and we are constantly reminded of this in our daily interactions with all of you. If you leave our shop with a smile on your face, whether that smile comes from an item or an experience, we are so pleased to be a part of that process.

And, so... Inspired by The Hoptimist, we are creating a new series here on our blog. "The Hoptimist Presents..." will feature stories and discoveries that encourage us to think positively. Simply: we want to have a place to celebrate good news, celebrate joy, celebrate life!

We hope that in the coming days, you'll stop by and visit us and The Hoptimist in the shop, stop by our Facebook page to see The Hoptimist on daily adventures, and keep a smile on your face. If for no other reason than that you can.
