Fresno is a great place for finding unique items for your home or lifestyle. There's a great spirit of localism in the Central Valley, and its spurred along by entrepreneurs like Marielle Parrish who owns Happy House over on Palm and Bullard.
Happy House is a lifestyle store dedicated to helping Central Valley residents great a stylish and happy home. What makes Happy House unique is her commitment to supporting local artisans and entrepreneurs, whose products and goods she sells in her store. It's a great way for Fresnans to explore local versions of the products they buy every day, and support businesses in their community rather than big corporations.
Marielle takes this a step further though, because it's more than just a product. She understands that each local business is owned by someone in our community, with a family and story just as unique and worthy of sharing as hers. For each piece or product she sells in her store, she likes to get to know the people who make it, and share that with her customers. It creates a far more intimate shopping experience when you not only are supporting your neighbors, but know the story behind their business.
This is the character that defines her store. The Happy House brand is one that truly cares about promoting everything Fresno, from the creatives and artisans to the residents who are purchasing various items for their home.
Over the last few weeks, she has been using Instagram to advertise her self-care and Mother's Day bundles. Looking through the catalog of options on the bundles, you can get an idea of the types of local items she sells in her store. This includes candles, bath products, locally produced snacks and treats like Pop's Caramels, scrunchies, eye pillows, water bottles, etc. It's a great option for quality self-care or to show some love and appreciation on Mother's Day.
There's much more than this though as Happy House also has dinnerware, kitchen items, jewelry, and more!
Right now, you can continue to support Happy House through her Instagram page. They are currently running contactless delivery most days of the week. Just send a DM, email, or phone call her way and let her know your order.
Stay in the loop as well because soon Happy House will be launching a website with some pretty amazing features about life in Fresno!
Happy House is a great way to support local businesses. Not only is the store native to Fresno, but all the products she sells in her store come from Valley businesses as well. There's hardly a better way to help the community!
