The House of Oojah?
The House of Oojah started late of 2004 selling online AudioBooks and Retro Rotary Dial phones .
Since we have evolved to having stock of more than 1200 new Audio Books, having sold about 10,000 + AudioBooks online since 2004
We first started selling new AudioBooks when we realised that most online AudioBooks sellers did not actually have the AudioBook in stock. They would take your money - then order it from the publisher - and then post it to you weeks later when they received it from the publisher. We thought people who were buying on the Internet wanted it now!. So gradually we have increased our range of Audio Books that we keep in stock, so that customers can get their Audio Book at Internet speed - not horse and cart speed!
We are based in Adelaide South Australia. In 2006 we started selling on Trademe.co.nz, and have sold 1000+ AudioBooks to New Zealand. We keep our AudioBooks in stock, so postage to New Zealand takes a few days more, but its a lot quicker than waiting for an audiobook on backorder to be posted from the USA (as most New Zealand online Audio Book sellers do) We also Audio Books worldwide from our Australian site The House of Oojah - lots to the UK, and to the USA - from Florida to Washington State. The House of Oojah is operated by Sagin Pty Ltd.
Why is it called the House of Oojah?
We enjoy an weekly newsletter from Michael Quinion at www.worldwidewords.org. Michael talks about the origin of words and phrases. we were looking for a online ID (and you all know how hard that is), and after reading his nonsense words section, came across oojah_capivvy, which basically is a nonsense word like "pass me that thingy" when you can't remember the name of the object. Once you have a user name of Oojah_capivvy, and you are going to open an online store - its only logical to call it "The House of Oojah" isn't it? And when you start a website - what else are you going to call it but www.TheHouseOfOojah.com ?!
