We recently started carrying an amazing and innovative brand named Blue Q. Blue Q describes themselves as proud manufactures and designers of life-improving, joy-bringing products since 1988. Bags, socks, bath products, and oven mitts are just some of the hilarious and quirky items Blue Q has to offer. Their products make amazing gifts and are perfect for anyone who loves a good laugh.
For thirty years, Blue Q has been inspiring the lives of their customers and store owners. Back in 1988, when they first started in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, someone had the idea for “Flat Cat”. “Flat Cat” is a cut-out stand up cardboard pet and was designed for the lazy pet owner. You can’t pet it, but it scared the crap out of mice. It was a huge success that helped launch their business and it wasn’t long before Blue Q was developing more and more products.
From then on, the creative ideas kept coming. They incorporated kitchen products like oven mitts and dish towels. Then, there was all types of bags and socks for both men and women that questioned traditional gender roles and shocked their audience. Now, Blue Q has added everything to their line of products: from breath spray, to bath and body products, to tin boxes.
If you love jokes, vulgarities, equal rights, or even funky prints and pictures; Blue Q is for you. They have something for everyone and their products are perfect for your home, office, or on the go. They literally have thought of everything.
Laughs aside, the Blue Q family donates some of their profits to benefit different organizations across The United States. Every Blue Q bag that sells supports the Nature Conservatory and every Blue Q sock sold supports Doctors without Borders. Many of their products also state their support for the Women’s Movement and Feminism.
Challenging stereotypes, gender inequalities, and typical activities of men and women are what Blue Q is all about. This is one of the many reasons that we chose to carry this incredible brand in our store. Their quirky taste and amazing sense of humor are just some of the qualities that separate them from the rest. They also promise to provide the “very best quality” for their customers (they even print it on everything they make).
As much as Blue Q loves to curse and joke around, there are a few things they always stick to in order to keep their business thriving and their employees and customers happy:
- Take the time to make a product super bad-ass.
- LOVE is POWER.
- When someone hugs you, let them be the first to let go.
- A cat is a lion to a mouse.
Remember this important message, today and everyday. Thanks Blue Q!
