The Otaku Nook is an online store that specializes in anime, gaming, and kpop inspired candles and body care. We also stock cute items and aromatherapy items.
We are avid lovers of anime, videogames, tabletop gaming, kpop (hello fellow Stans!), and all things cute but wanted to bring together this love with high quality homemade and small business items. We wanted to give back to the community and also spotlight various artists that are "up and coming." All of our art was created by artists that are just getting started from all over the world.
If you'd like to talk regarding having your art on our products, please send me an e-mail at (my e-mail) and I would love to talk to you!
Personally, I'm a mother of an eleven year old and I have a large family that lives with me. Sometimes, they will help me shrink wrap the items... sometimes! Haha. Just kidding. My family is super supportive of me and this business and I'm truly lucky to have them.
I originally started this business to marry my interests together but my ultimate dreams are to put my son through college, get my aging parents a newer, safer van, help support other small business and small artists by giving them another platform to use, and to help support charities that center around disabilities and mental health. When I grow to the point of having other employees, my wish is to be able to give them a life changing bonus at least once. My belief is to never hoard money. Money should be used to better the world and the people who are in it.
Thank you for giving me an opportunity to make my dreams come true and also to give me the power to help others.
