Why Buy From Us?

There's something new and different to discover at every turn.

We're here for you, the customer.
We're here for the local community.
And, we're here for the widely diverse cultures of the global community.

Experience Focused

Experience a wide assortment of imported products from the world over. Focusing on quality and value, Exotic Imports looks to captivate you through an interesting and eclectic variety of merchandise and provide you with insight into why, where, and how these items are made.

Community Centered

The Exotic Imports team has always been highly engaged in a variety of local charities & non-profit organizations. In addition, we have actively supported small business since 1993. (75% of people in the USA are employed by small business, not the corporations!).
Our motto, "Shop Globally, Locally!"


We are available to answer questions about the products we sell. This website offers multiple channels of communication. We look forward to hearing from you!

Globally Conscientious

Exotic Imports supports organic farmers. We DO NOT support organizations who use animal testing. When possible, we only buy items made from natural materials. We support fair trade.

Eco Friendly

We believe in re-using something before recycling it! Exotic Imports uses ONLY re-used and recycled materials for shipping.

Our Social Philosophy

We don't discriminate based on age, race (duh, we're all human), sexual orientation, religion, political views, ethnicity, and all those things that people argue about.

Competitive Prices

Striving ceaselessly to provide our customers the greatest possible value, we regularly reassess our prices to ensure they are more than competitive. Always, shop us first!

Attentive Customer Service

We are here for you! It is our privilege, pleasure, and duty to make certain your shopping experience with us is as satisfying as possible.

Safe and Secure Ordering

Our shopping cart, checkout and payment processing is managed securely by PayPal. We do not share your personal information with anyone ever.

Hand-Selected Inventory

All of our merchandise is hand-selected by our local staff, for you. There is no distant, cold, disconnected corporate office making those decisions for us.

Fast Shipping & In-Store Pick-up

Shop online and pick-up in-store - we keep it simple for you. All of our shipping is handled safely, securely, and adeptly by the United States Postal Service (USPS).

Local businesses like us need your support now more than ever

Small businesses like ours can help fuel local economies. But for a lot of us, times are tough right now. In light of recent events, many local businesses just like us are modifying their hours and the ways they serve their communities. Some of us are even closing our doors altogether. Here's how you can help make a difference.
- Shop online or call. Whether you're buying a one-of-a-kind find from your favorite vintage store or toilet paper from your local pharmacy, visit their online shop - it's always open. Shop our website or call us at (309)797-8590.
- Buy a gift card to use later. Show support now and treat yourself later - your timely purchase could make a difference.
We hope you'll join us in supporting local businesses through this challenging time. Together, we can keep our communities vibrant. Please follow us on Facebook for any additional updates, or on Instagram.
