Bxtreme Hobbies & Bxtreme Party Supplies have become one: THE FUN SHOP
The Fun Shop, situated in the center of Swakopmund, Namibia opened its doors as Bxtreme Hobbies in August 2007 as a Hobby and Toy shop with a difference and added Bxtreme Party Supplies as a Party and Dress-up shop in 2010.
As we changed the focus of our shop to party supplies, wedding décor & accessories as well as costumes and accessories, but are keeping our toy section, we decided to also update/change our name and logo.
The shop is owned and run by Janine Bruns, specializing in party supplies & advertising and Edith Knoetze, responsible for the administration and kiddies’ toy division.
We offer a wide range of wedding décor & accessories, party supplies and dress up options for young and old as well as a wide variety of toys.
Where are you based and which areas do you cover?
We are situated in Swakopmund however orders can be placed via our website and we are able to deliver our products to anywhere in Namibia.
How did you get started in the industry?
After opening Bxtreme Party Supplies, we started assisting clients with the setup and décor of wedding venues. We soon realised that the interest in and variety of available Wedding Décor had expanded drastically over the last few years.
We also noticed that the trends had switched from DIY to couples purchasing ready made décor kits and that these are available in a wide variety of options to match almost any wedding theme and colour. We incorporated wedding wedding décor and accessories into our party range of products and haven't looked back since.
What inspires you?
Happy, exciting customers and keeping up with new trends.
What is your favourite destination in Namibia?
Swakopmund, with four seasons in one day.
What advice would you give engaged couples as they prepare for their BigDay?
Before the wedding day arrange that someone in your family or wedding party takes home all your gifts and mementos for safe keeping after the reception. For example you wouldn't want your guest book or cards box to go missing.
