Bubble Buddies was launched in late 2016 by Glasgow born Shannon Travers, a self confessed wine lover.
"When I got the chance to have a nice long bath to myself to relax and unwind after a long, hard day, the last thing I wanted to be dealing with was the smashed wine glass on the floor that I had knocked over, for the second time that week.
The smashed glass wasn't the issue really, it was more the wasted wine if truth be told! I figured there must be an easier way to enjoy a nice glass of wine with my bath. After some researching I found there were a few options available online, but having ordering a couple, I found they just didn't do the job. I did question whether my wine glasses or volumes were just too large, but undeterred, I decided I was going to make something that did EXACTLY what I wanted it to do.
I was so lucky to find an absolutely incredible factory right here in Scotland who I worked alongside to make our Bubble Buddies wine glass holders. I thought I would pop some on to a website and maybe sell a few to help with the Christmas bills. It turned out there were a lot of like-minded people out there with the same issue and sales grew beyond my wildest dreams.
We then began to get a LOT of feedback, that people wanted an equivalent to help hold their beers while in the bath or shower. So we designed the Handy Shandy. With being such a small business we are not able to launch our Handy Shandies without the help of our fantastic customer's, so we have decided to launch a Kickstarter campaign to help us to bring these to market.
We will pop a link here as soon as our Kickstarter is live and really hope you can help.
In the meantime I would like to thank everyone who has supported us and our Bubble Buddies so far. We are so gratefully for each and every person who has taken the time to visit our website and show some support.
Best wishes and many thanks,
