Bareknuckle Bazaar

Partners Cameron and Audio Helkuik are the owners of Bareknuckle Bazaar, a new online home goods business based in Omaha. The company, “in the business of making art,” launched in May and features pillows, small housewares, and other home décor items, all hand-crafted by the duo.

“I have a string of highly creative jobs under my belt: art tutor, costume designer, art gallery manager, arts & crafts instructor, fashion designer…” shares Audio. “Cameron has a resume filled with more traditional business experience but has always wished to do something creative with his hands. We finally decided to join forces and take the plunge. Here we are now with Bareknuckle Bazaar, and we have so much creative energy we can barely stand it.”20130531_bs_8594_web

Audio says the business aims to infuse high-quality, rugged yet refined design into the lives of its customers. “They might be looking to make tiny home improvements here or there, or to do a total overhaul [of their living space], but they’re focused on surrounding themselves with great design that will last.” Included in the store’s initial collection is a line of linen pillows with leather detailing, available in several patterns. All of the products featured on Bareknuckle Bazaar’s Etsy site are priced affordably at $40-$150.

Audio hopes to eventually expand the business into upholstery work—vintage furniture makeovers, custom bicycle seats, even auto “hotrod” upholstery. A brick and mortar storefront is not out of the question either.

For now, the business is using primarily social media—a blog and Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram—to share photos of new items and market their goods to customers.
