Trivia Thursday

The LadyBug Shop (LBS) began as a “Click and Mortar” business, started by Dan and Rhonda Bond, For 9 years they have successfully built the LadyBug Shop into a respected and unique shop in Milford, DE.

The LBS has a great history in Milford and is genuinely bound to the city.  It is tied into the town’s history—after all, it was a second grade class at a local school that had come up with the idea of having a state bug and had petitioned the State Legislature to act on this back in 1973.

In 2012 we, Christopher and David, began working with Rhonda in preparation to take the reigns of the LBS. We have since learned all about the shop – its customers and how we hope best to serve them. As we began to move forward in 2013, we were excited about bringing in new product lines, giving the inside of the LBS a face lift, and expanding our reach out into the community and online. Unfortunately, and after some hard soul searching, we had to close the retail aspect of the LadyBug Shop.

It is 2014 now and we have moved out of the Delaware area and starting a new journey in Madeira Beach, FL!  Still focusing our efforts toward the ONLINE portion of our business, we have found a NEW retail space and we are open for business once again. It is still our hope to be more involved throughout this new community and with state and national organizations, inviting them and those throughout the world to visit our online store and come visit us in Madeira Beach, FL!

We are interested, and looking forward to hearing from you about what you’d like to see here online and in the new LadyBug Shop & Turtle Treasures - thereby creating the most positive shopping experience we can offer YOU.

A ladybug's bright colors warn predators to stay away.
Like many other insects, ladybugs use aposematic coloration to signal their toxicity to would-be predators. Insect-eating birds and other animals learn to avoid meals that come in red and black, and are more likely to steer clear of a ladybug lunch.
