About Us

At Oh Shiny! we create and carry products that resonate with and bring joy to our community. Our mission is to create brighter memories with modern, colorful, and playful designs! Every balloon garland installation and balloongram is thoughtfully made to order with the most care and attention to detail. Our new Pasadena brick and mortar is filled with party supplies, stationery, and gifts, many by women and AAPI-owned brands.  

 

Fall 2014 — Began selling handmade party goods and letter balloon banners online out of parent's small garage. 

Summer 2016 — Moved into San Gabriel studio. We had weekly pop-ups, workshops, and occasional photoshoots. Balloon garlands began trending and soon took over all our weekends.

Fall 2019 — Opened Pasadena brick & mortar! Customers could now shop 6 days a week in person. We expanded our selection to include stationary and small gifts, including an impressive collection of boba related merchandise.

Spring 2020 — Pasadena shop closed to walk-ins due to COVID, so we quickly pivoted to doing deliveries to stay afloat. This led to the creation of our signature balloongram and hot air balloons!
