MOOand BOOM: sustainable goodies, lifestyle classes and speciality coffee!
Be bright, fabulous and feel-good at MOOand BOOM
A lifestyle and well-being store for everyone
We’ve met some inspirational bright sparks during the last year. Turning Covid turmoil and job losses into new business opportunities, we’re constantly amazed by their get-up-and-go energy. And when they want to serve Two Chimps? Well, that makes us love them all the more…
MOOand BOOM is perhaps the most fabulously quirky lockdown opening. Based in Whitchurch, Shropshire, MOOand BOOM is an ethical lifestyle store with a hidden-treasure café nestled at the back. Take a break from browsing and enjoy Two Chimps coffee in pretty surroundings – what’s not to love?
Bringing sustainability (and style) to Shropshire
Maddie Ashbrook launched MOOand BOOM when she lost her job during the pandemic. Maddie worked as a product coordinator for a cashmere company, and this break from work offered her time to reflect and revaluate her relationship with the fashion industry. New clothes are lovely, but does it need to be new, new, new all the time? Of course not. Maddie decided to launch her ethical lifestyle store to help everyday shoppers find more sustainable products for their wardrobe and home.
With helping hands from her mum and good friend Dana, Maddie opened the doors to MOOand BOOM in April 2021. Offering beautiful items for your house and body, as well as lifestyle workshops and an unmissably dainty café, Maddie’s lovely store is a must-visit!
Maddie wants to prove that great style doesn’t have to mean new clothes each year. Pop into MOOand BOOM and find an array of second-hand clothes in excellent condition. Guilt-free retail therapy that’s packed with style? Yes please!
Maddie also stocks a wide range of new clothes, all of which are eco-friendly and sustainably sourced. Think quality clothes made from recycled polyester and 100% thick knit wool jumpers with ‘snuggle’ in every stitch.
Channel The Repair Shop spirit into your home with a statement upcycled piece. MOOand BOOM’s upcycled range will breathe fresh life into tired spaces and bring gorgeous new vibes into your home. Maddie also buys antique items and uses old fabrics to make cushions, bags and aprons.
There are some stunning new items, too, such as throws, rugs and teapots. Oh, and that Instagrammable coconut bowl you’ve always wanted? Find it here.
Breathe in… and out…
Take care of your mind and body with Maddie’s supplement, fragrance and skincare ranges. Find everything from all-natural soy wax candles (located in the aromatherapy shed!) to pretty bamboo toothbrushes. How lovely!
Or, why not take some time out in an expert-led workshop? The MOOand BOOM Studio hosts a wide variety of wellness workshops including hypnosis, yoga and nutrition. There are some great craft classes if you fancy getting creative, plus cool foodie-themed sessions like Kombucha tasting. Each class is small – no more than eight – to ensure you receive maximum attention and an all round good time!
Oooh! They serve speciality coffee!
Take a peek towards the back of the store and find the lovely MOOand BOOM Café. Serving loose leaf tea and freshly roasted Two Chimps coffee, it’s the perfect place to refuel after a spot of shopping. Maddie currently serves Have Faith in the Fairies in the café. This exquisite Brazilian coffee is smooth, chocolatey and 100% irresistible. Great paired with a raspberry bakewell, brownie or (vegan) cinnamon swirl.
We think you’ll enjoy your cup of Two Chimps so much you’ll want to take it home. Good news, coffee lovers, you can do just that! because Maddie also stocks retails bags of our coffees, all ground for cafetiere or filter devices. Which will you go for? Have Faith in the Fairies or something a bit different? Ooooh, what a selection!
Treat yourself to a bag of ethically sourced speciality coffee at MOOand BOOM, or head to our online shop to view the full range.
