Hi 👋 My name is Jo Anna (Jo), and I am so glad you found my store. I cannot wait to share with you the beautiful, unique, and eclectic pieces that I find to offer here. I am drawn to color; to soft, cozy and comfortable; to fun or quirky; to emotionally touching; to thought-provoking and lesson-learning; to a good story; to vintage and modern; to one-of-a-kind; to previously loved, repurposed, and re-imagined; and to free-spiritedness. I don't purchase with a specific style or genre or decorating "rule" in mind. I shop for what I love, what speaks to me, or what makes me feel happy and feel good. But if I had to name it, I'd say, "rainbow boho".
I will offer new, repurposed, and reimagined items (and packaging). My goal is to only offer items that are ethically-sourced. To me, that means business and social practices that are eco-friendly and cruelty-free, provide good, safe living wages and working conditions, are fair and equitable, and if imported, fair trade**. Because of this, I won't have the least expensive offerings, but I won't have the most expensive either. I'd like to make my offerings affordable to as many people as possible while still maintaining profitability for maker and seller, and for the supporting of important causes.
Speaking of important causes.... Part of Bright Bungalow's profits will be given to organizations that do the hard work that is crucial to so many lives on this precious Earth: animal rights and rescue; sexual assault/domestic violence/trafficking prevention, outreach, and healing services; homelessness prevention and hand-up services; equal/fair/ethical treatment of all people regardless of their gender, race, color, religious belief/non-belief, birthplace, current address, ethnicity, age, ability, citizenship status, sexual-orientation, economic status, title/name, or political leanings; and, of course, at the heart of it all, caring for our Mother Earth.
Thank you so much for being here. I so look forward to sharing peace, love, happiness, rainbows, beautiful treasures, and social good with you ☮️ 💕☺️🌈 ✨✊🏻
