I'm Jules Moon and I began B2 Kawaii Gift Shop in 2018.
I originally opened B2 when I was helping manage a tattoo shop here in San Diego. A suite opened up in the same plaza as the shop so we took it and wanted to open a gift store to help the tattoo artists make some passive income. After the artists put their art in the store, I wanted to expand! I began reaching out to artists and quickly began growing our sparkly swarm.
Within 3 months of opening the store, we had the opportunity to absorb the inventory from a consignment shop that went out of business in Los Angeles. We went from 20 to 120 artists all within 3 months of starting this store! It was beautiful chaos.
We are currently relocating our storefront in San Diego due to the pandemic but are participating in virtual trade shows and of course have our online store here open 24/7! We can't wait to reopen our store in San Diego so we can see your lovely faces again.
Thank you for all of your support - it means the world to us and our 150+ artists around the world!
