We could not be more pleased with our shop and our sales at Blue Moon Gift Shops. Blue Moon is an absolutely perfect location, for both individuals and companies, to reach the Wilmington market with their products. The interior appearance of Blue Moon is consistently magazine-worthy, the centralized location in Wilmington is ideal, and the staff… well, there are not words to describe the friendliness, helpfulness, and overall pleasant demeanor with which all customers and vendors are greeted upon walking through the front door. They are the epitome of professionalism and we are continuously grateful for our relationship with Blue Moon!
My experience at Blue Moon Gift Shops has been wonderful. Blue Moon is not only an awesome place to sell my merchandise and a storefront for my shop, but all of the employees there have been so supportive and helpful. I cannot say enough about how much I appreciate the guidance and the suggestions they have offered me. I feel like we are both working towards the same goal of owning a successful business!
Blue Moon Gift Shops is like family to me! I have had my greeting cards in Blue Moon for almost a decade now and I still feel my business continues to grow and evolve every day. I adore Mary Ann, Sandra and all the wonderfully kind staff that greet me with a smile every time I pop in to restock my shop. Thanks, Blue Moon for creating such a beautiful and creative place to shop and sell my work!
Our R Mended Metals shop has been in full swing at Blue Moon for over a year now. During that time we have only had great things to say about our experiences there. The ladies behind the desk are always super helpful, and if there is a customer who wants something different than what is in our shop, they call us and ask if we can accommodate. The ladies stretch to go the extra distance for both the shop renters and the customers who walk through the door. It’s a win win for everyone. I highly recommend Blue Moon.
Discovering Blue Moon as a recent transplant to Wilmington from NYC was the single most advantageous business move for me. My interior design and custom decorative painting company immediately took off directly due to the shop I set up here. In fact, after only a few months, I expanded to a larger shop! The staff has been phenomenally helpful as well, keeping my prospective new clients in touch with me during visits to my NY clients. It is a magical place, like nothing else I’ve encountered and a must-do for a company’s marketing budget.
Blue Moon has always impressed me with their sincere respect for, and encouragement of, local artisans. They carefully curate their vendors, so that we all form a collective showcase that attracts loyal shoppers who appreciate handcrafted work. I can’t imagine a better retail environment — whether your art is a side business, or your livelihood!
Looking for a 1st class place that balances customer service with vendor support? Think Blue Moon! A perennial well deserved winner of Best Gift Shop in Wilmington, Blue Moon also makes vendors feel like a part of the family.
My experience at Blue Moon has been very positive. I get so much support and encouragement from the friendly staff. They want me to succeed as much as I want to succeed. It just makes sense to be a part of the gift shop voted Wilmington’s #1 year after year!
I love being a part of Blue Moon. The staff is so great and they are always helpful to me!
I am so happy I decided to take a step forward with my business and got a shop at Blue Moon. It’s a great outlet for my creativity because all of my items are handmade. I didn’t want the hassle of running & owning my own store, so having a slice of Blue Moon was perfect for me! The staff is always extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with.
My experience with Blue Moon Gift Shops has been amazing! I knew I wanted a shop in Blue Moon initially because while working at various shows and markets, when customers ask if you are in a shop, the minute you mention Blue Moon, everyone knows it and loves it! Once I was established in my BM shop, it really struck me how professional and friendly the staff is there. They want us all to succeed and they are always there to help us drive our businesses whether it’s by telling us what people seem to like, or by advertising on social media. I can’t think of a better partner to have in my business than the Blue Moon Gift Shops!
As a vendor, I’ve been a part of the Blue Moon’s amazing growth and popularity for over 10 years and know first hand about the kind and helpful staff and the variety of world class items offered. I know when I refer someone to Blue Moon that they are in for a unique and happy experience. There’s no other place like Blue Moon Gift Shops.
The best thing about having a shop at Blue Moon is it’s like owning a storefront with none of the hassle of owning a storefront. The Blue Moon staff also makes sure my customers receive the same service I would provide if I were there full time. If a customer has a special request, they call. My inventory is low, they call. Even when a light bulb is out, they call. Why once a customer had a craving for a ham sandwich… they had it delivered! 🙂
Blue Moon has something for everyone. The shop owners are always trying to bring something new to our customers. I’m so excited to be a part of this wonderful gift store.
I love having my shop at Blue Moon Gift Shops. Everyone that works at Blue Moon are great to work with and extremely knowledgeable about all vendor products. I appreciate the marketing Blue Moon provides as well as their convenient location, great store hours and complimentary gift wrapping. Thanks Blue Moon for all you do to help my business thrive!
I just love having the opportunity to display my product Prissies socks at Blue Moon. The staff is wonderful, friendly, respectful and helpful to any needs that I have had as a vendor. Thank you so much to everyone at Blue Moon. What a classy and lovely gift store.
