Why Be Happy?

A “Happy” is a gift you give for no particular reason at all but to make someone happy!

In February of 2022, the dream of B. Happy began. The friendship between Krista and Beth began over 30 years ago when Krista married Beth’s younger brother.

On that cold night at Taco Mama, Krista asked Beth, “Hey, we should open a gift shop together! Would you want to do it?” From there, it took flight. Krista, a retired special education teacher working in retail, and Beth, a healthcare administrator, took the leap of faith and followed their dream. The dream is now a reality! B. Happy!
