Because a mask is essential for slowing the spread of COVID-19, it’s safe to assume we’ll all be donning them this holiday season. But while masks started out as an unwanted piece of personal protective equipment, they’re now morphing into something else: a fashion statement. They’re also the perfect stocking stuffer this Christmas.
Masks are increasingly adding a bit of personal flair to the wearer’s outfit through designs, humorous sayings, and the logos of brands, organizations, and sports teams.
At Bloomington businesses, there are many styles of mask to choose. Perhaps someone on your list is a loyal Hoosiers fan, loves dogs, or enjoys tie-dye. At these local retailers, there’s a mask for everyone on your list.
For the past 14 years, we have been publishing Bloom, a free, bimonthly cultural and lifestyle magazine serving Bloomington, Indiana, and surrounding communities. We have four missions: to support local businesses, local charities, local arts, and diversity. We are an integral part of the fabric of this community.
Like so many small businesses (4 employees), we are facing huge challenges in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to be able to continue producing the magazine and our website, magbloom.com, but we need your help.
