If the item is made for your bubbling baby or curious kiddo, you can bet BGBJ has it!

New consignors are always welcome and treated with the utmost care. Also, children are ALWAYS welcome, and Bubble Gum and Blue Jeans will even play with them while you shop!

The first thing you notice when you walk into Bubble Gum and Blue Jeans isn’t the clothes and shoes or the strollers, toys, and cribs like you would in any typical consignment shop.

The first thing everyone experiences upon entering through the doors of Bubblegum and Bluejeans is the reminiscent scent of Double Bubble. It immediately brings to mind the excitement of being nine years old and untwisting that hard little piece of gum that promises so much sweet flavor in the first 30 seconds of chewing. Unlike that good old Halloween staple, the experience at Bubblegum and Bluejeans last much, much longer.

Stacy Howard has been running Bubblegum and Bluejeans since July 9, 2009.

Her expertise and customer dedication shows it.

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_image _builder_version=”3.0.92″ src=”http://cullmantoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Bubble-Gum-and-Blue-Jeans-Consignment-2.jpg” show_in_lightbox=”off” url_new_window=”off” use_overlay=”off” always_center_on_mobile=”on” force_fullwidth=”off” show_bottom_space=”on” /][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.0.92″ background_layout=”light”]

During our interview, she greeted every customer with a smile and by their name, even remembering that one customer had gotten married recently.

When another came in looking for pageant shoes that weren’t currently in stock, instead of brushing the woman off with a negative or saying “try back later,” Mrs. Howard chatted with her about exactly what she was looking for and wrote it down in the store’s “Wish Book.”

She even asked her if sandals were OK or if she wanted only closed-toe.

The customer hesitated as she thought it over, before confirming that sandals would indeed be acceptable, proving that not only does Stacy know her customers, she knows their needs – sometimes even before they do!

Knowing those needs has kept her at the forefront of consignment in Cullman for many years.

Some of you may remember when Bubblegum and Bluejeans was on the busy 1st Avenue. Moe’s BBQ came in, and it got even more hectic:

“I watched a mother pull into the little parking lot across the street, try to cross over with stroller and toddler in tow, timing the traffic to cross. I knew I had to find a safer place” says Mrs. Howard.

Thus, the idea to transfer just a few blocks away to 4th Avenue was born. With that move came much safer streets, a dedicated parking lot, a gorgeous historic building, room to display merchandise, and an even better – room to let your kids play while you shop.

What sets Bubblegum and Bluejeans apart from other clothing stores in the area? What makes it worthy of our Cullman Today Merchant of the Month award?

Not only does Bubblegum and Bluejeans offer excellent customer service, beautiful clothes, and outstanding prices, it provides a distinctive ambiance and home-town feel of a genuine community which we cherish so much in the gentle South.

For older kids, Mrs. Howard is developing events to help exhibit and build their business sense (Follow the Bubble Gum and Blue Jeans Facebook page to keep up with information on that).

When parents visit with their children, there’s no yelling “Don’t touch that!”

Instead, she offers to let them play so that mama can get a minute to herself to browse. When you find that perfect outfit, she provides monogramming and applique services to help you make it even better.

Very often, you can find her working the register herself, keeping her finger on the pulse of Cullman consignment.
