When the Bean Counter first opened in 2008, Bombadil Studios did not exist. At the time, we only had one independent shop and a few clinic locations, all of which sold a small, limited amount of jewelry and gifts. After a few years, with an increasing demand for more unique gift items and wares and the addition of Magnolia Pearl to our collection, we began to realize that our small shops could no longer accommodate our ever-growing gift and clothing inventory. It was decided, after much consideration, to open our own independent gift store where customers could find unique jewelry, bags, scarves, and clothing lines that were not available anywhere else in Springfield. Thus, Bombadil Studios was born, named after a beloved Tolkien character.
Bombadil Studios not only offer wares in the way of jewelry and bags, we are also carry Magnolia Pearl, an exclusive line of authentically, artisan clothing and accessories. Crafted out of vintage fabrics and detailed by hand, these unique pieces are often one-of-a-kind and not sold anywhere else in Illinois. With a large variety of t-shirts, blouses, dresses, pants, and overalls to choose from, you're sure to find something unique to you.
Looking for something made locally? Our ItzAChicThang brand is a line of whimsical, quirky, bohemian one-of-a-kind accessories designed and fabricated by local artist Deb Shull-Andrews.
We also host a variety of other interesting clothing brands, such as Lost Petal Linens, TOV, Little Journeys, and many more.
Bombadil Studios offers a large variety of antique, hand-made, and one-of-the-kind jewelry. Here, you will find large, antique pearl collars that have been re-fashioned into beautiful necklaces, one-of-the-kind birdhouses made out recycled materials, lamps that have been crafted out of old, heavy hemp ropes and driftwood, and unique signs created from repurposed tobacco drying racks. Bombadil Studio offers a large selection of women's accessories, including necklaces, scarves, earrings, handbags, and headbands.
