We Opened A Store! (/eventual queer community center)

In September of 2023 we partnered up with a trans-run antifascist infoshop to create 'The Beautiful Idea' - a brick and mortar store on the downtown mall in Charlottesville, Virginia. It's 1/3 bookstore, 1/3 Critter Butts, and 1/3 art, jewelry, and gifts from local queer & trans artists/makers.

ABOUT US

Welcome! Our little business is two and a half years old, and we're so hopeful our queer feral trash creature art will find a loving home with your friends, loved ones, maybe coworkers... Enemies? Everyone deserves a good card, even if you're telling them something they don't wanna hear.

We're Joan & Dylan - two neurodivergent queers doing our best to make enough to survive capitalism while also doing something that brings us joy. Welcome to Critter Butts. We hope you find joy here, too.

MUTUAL AID

We're a tiny business, born during the pandemic. Accessibility and community are important to us. As people who are basically always low-income, we try to pay ourselves a living wage while also offering accessible prices that our peers can afford - so cards and stickers are always at the lowest price we can manage, and we offer sliding scale pricing on shirts sold in person at markets.

We also gather up 10% of profits to send to trans people in need, as reparations, and to organizations supporting land back, water protection, and other community efforts crucial to our survival as creatures within a wounded ecosystem.
