You might find it strange to see a blog post on a bookseller's blog that's not about, well, books.
Sure, books are our greatest passion and the foundation upon which we've built our brand—but there's a whole lot more that excites us and, more importantly, our customers. And it's our job to give them access to everything they need to remain informed, entertained, and enriched.
So, let's talk Funkoween. Never heard of it? This branded celebration was the 2020 brainchild of a company that was, like most of us, looking for creative ways to navigate an unprecedented year. Occupying a block of the calendar that's about halfway to Hallow's Eve, Funkoween is a weeklong celebration of pop culture that debuts exciting new Funko collectibles every day of the week.
If you missed it, don't worry! You can still shop our selection of all the best new releases as well as timeless fan favorites from Disney princesses to horror movie monsters to anime icons to classic novelists.
See? Everything does come back around to books.
