Doodle & Boom
Multi Award Winning Gift and Home

Founded on a shoestring budget by Lisa & Peter Mahaffey in 2015 Doodle & Boom was born.
With a down turn in non online shopping the odds were against them from the start however they believed there was still a need and want for good quality, interesting shops that offered something just a little bit different from the norm. Using repurposed second hand furniture and wood the pair set about designing and making their shop interior themselves. The doors opened in August 2015 and they have never looked back.

''We have always loved unique, quirky, interesting and well designed items. We love to spend our free time, what little of it there is, dandering round craft fairs and independent shops and it pained us that everytime we wanted to go to our local town to peruse gorgeous shops and spend our hard earned money there were none that offered what we wanted and what we were interested in and so, Doodle & Boom was born! ''

Lisa, as well as having managed many retail outlets in her early career, has also had her own very successful art and craft business selling at local markets, online and through various galleries & retail outlets for over 10 years.
Peter is a brilliant graphic designer and also a very talented photographer. All these factors along with their passions were a great help in giving them the confidence as well as the necessary tools to go for it and create Doodle & Boom.

We want to provide a mix of quality gift and home, most of which will be unique to our shop in Bangor!
We will do our very best to constantly source new and interesting products so that the shop is constantly changing and evolving to keep you interested and engaged........And most of all we will ALWAYS strive to put YOU the customer first, and at ease....never will you get a pushy sale, that’s not what we're about, you can browse leisurely on your own or we can be on hand to tell you about products, its up to you if you choose to buy them. We want you to enjoy your visit with us. Great customer service is one of our TOP priorities.''
