Our Story


   This Is It Shops.com LLC is a family owned and operated e-commerce business originally established as 'Nik Nak Nooks' in May 1981 as a flea market operation in Warren Michigan selling consumer electronics items along with copper musical sculptures (knick knacks). Our flea market operations were so successful, we opened our 1st brick & mortar store in Ferndale MI in September 1981 with a focus on collectible knick knacks like handcrafted gift items, Precious Moments® figurines, and wooden toys. We continued to operate both our brick and mortar location (which later moved to a new location on 9 mile in Downtown Ferndale) and  flea market stands in various flea markets off and on for several years.
Formerly Country Fail Flea Market
Our first Brick & Mortar shop
We jumped on the online shopping bandwagon - ecommerce - and began selling on eBay® (under the user name 'beatryce' now 'thisisitshopscom') through our 'thisisitshops' branded eBay® store in late 2003. We became THISISITSHOPS.COM  L.L.C. in 2005 and continued to operate our flea market shops and eBay® store, while slowly adding our own branded 'online' stores. We contined to sell on eBay® and became an eBay® 'Top-rated seller' in August of 2011 for our commitment to 'providing the best buying experiences to...customers as a PowerSeller.'
When the economy began to show signs of its eventual 'collapse' - we ceased our flea market operations and  our eBay® store to move from brick and mortar retail to selling ONLY on our own 'This Is It Shops.com LLC' branded eCommerce stores in early 2008 (and we continue to be family owned and operated since). 
Our company then secured and registered the following domain names in addition to THISISITSHOPS.COM:
www.thisisitshops.biz
www.thisisitshops.us
www.thisisitshops.info
www.thisisitshops.org
www.thisisitshops.name
www.thisisitshops.net

These above domain names were associated with a particular niche store as indicated below:

Electronics Mall Superstore (.biz)

Electronics Bargain Bin (.us)

House & Home Shop (.info)

Telecommunication Services (.org)

Qwik Buy Store (.name)

eBay® Store (.net)

And these are snapshots of all of our ecommerce shops in 2009:

Although the recession caused the closure of several of our ecommerce shops during 2010, we continued to operate our "Electronics Superstore" eCommerce site and retained ownership of the 'thisisitshops' domain names for future development of online shops. In 2017, we developed our Nik Nak Nook ecommerce site at www.thisisitshops.net featuring Black Forest cuckoo clocks and secured and registered the domain name NIK-NAK-NOOK.COM for our Nik Nak Nook eCommerce site. We continue to provide various niche products for consumers at each of our online This Is It Shops Stores.

Keeping in mind that online shopping can be a very impersonal experience for the consumer, This Is It Shops strives to offer its consumers interactive e-tail stores with various ways for the consumer to contact a “real person” to handle questions or concerns while still providing a safe and secure "e-tailing" experience on each of our websites.  This indicates our company’s policy of placing the consumer first and foremost; after all, the consumer is the foundation for any business and our commitment is to put you, the consumer, first.
