The Happy Buddha Shops started as a single marketstall based in Wimborne Market, Dorset. We trade as Aria Crafts Ltd. and sell Aromatherapy, Soaps, Candles, Incense, chakra products and collectables including Buddhas.
Our goal has always been to provide quality, unique and hand crafted products, that are ethically sourced and fair trade. As Managing Director, a practicing Buddhist, a vegan and a keen environmentalist, I ensure that the company considers its environmental impact in everything that we do.
I believe that it is because of these strong ethics we hold that we found ourselves busy and with great feedback from our customers. We rapidly grew from holding a single market stall to running thirteen market stalls. After proudly getting into our first Shopping Emporium, we soon found ourselves in five indoor shopping emporiums across the South of England. Due to the excessive travelling, illness and England’s bitter cold winter weather, we decided it was now time for to take the risk in a difficult retail industry and to settle down and get our own shop – specialising in Buddha’s and all things Buddha related!
