Since having her identical twin boys in 2011, founder and owner of Bobo and Pinky, Ashley Johnson, noticed there was a demand for an online platform where parents could shop and consign from the comfort of their own home. Bobo and Pinky sells gently used clothing, wooden and eco friendly toys, as well, showcases handmade items from local artisans. There are many clothing options and products for parents of twins, also offering a 'multiples discount'.

How Bobo and Pinky Got its Start:
Ashley had no idea what to do with all the awesome, quality items her kids had grown out of, and found buy and sell sites to be a time consuming headache, consisting of constant no shows. She quickly discovered that there was a demand for a quality online consignment store that would enable local BC parents to sell their kids' items, as well as buy new and used items without having to leave home.
Bobo and Pinky Focuses On:
- quality, used toys
- wooden and/or ecofriendly toys
- boys and girls clothing, shoes, accessories (sizes 0-10)
- decor, party wear, equipment, and eating and traveling gear
- making shopping easy, more affordable and keeping the money in our local economy
Why You Should Shop Locally?
The practice of buying locally used items is more eco friendly, as it cuts down on items going into our landfills. As well, it eliminates the negative environmental impactof processing and making new items and then having them shipped to the consumer.
Bobo and Pinky often pops up around the greater Vancouver area.
