This is us, Simon and Christine. We're the owners of Beeja May, City of Toronto dwellers, a husband and wife duo, and parents to a headstrong toddler. We started Beeja May in 2019 because we wanted to provide an easy and accessible way for parents to shop secondhand for their families.
"As a new mom, I found it so intimidating to even leave the house, let alone spend an hour sifting through a thrift shop not knowing where the closest change table was. I quickly understood why many well-intentioned parents turned to fast-fashion retailers instead." - Christine, co-founder
What started as a side hustle eventually became our full-time jobs when we both left the corporate world to chase our dream of building a purpose-driven company. Shopping secondhand not only saves you money, but it helps save our planet by slowing down the negative impacts of fast fashion. We want to make shopping slow as fun, easy and convenient as shopping from fast-fashion.
We want to do our part and leave the world in a better place. Welcome to Beeja May, you can feel good about shopping here.
