Shop small, and support your local business! May 27 2016
‘’Do we need another baby shop in Surrey’’, you might ask. Actually yes, as we felt that a local approach and supporting small independent businesses really matters. Most of the brands we carry are start up’s by mothers taking a break from their ‘’real work’’, in order to give being a business owner a go, or to have a baby or 2. We have never felt stronger about supporting small companies, and entrepreneurs wanting to change their way of life. We found that there seems to be a real momentum of women, husband and wife duo’s, sisters and ex work colleagues, giving ‘’another way of working’’ a go, and it is SO refreshing to experience the support and backing within the start-up community. No one can do it by themselves, and someone in your network will have the contact you need for bringing their (and your) business to the next level, securing that deal, work with the hottest up an coming brand etc. It’s refreshing to be part of a community that not only supports, but also embraces a start-up culture of small businesses, - and here at my baby edit we are proud to sell products from businesses that definitely falls within the above category.
To name but a few, - here is a lovely edit by some of the start-up brands we carry, please help us in supporting small businesses. Your order really matters not only to us here at MyBabyEdit but to the brands we sell. Shop small and all that :)
Blade & Rose
Another UK based business, Blade & Rose was created whilst designer Amanda was on maternity leave, launching cool tights and leggings. Which ultimately led the company to be named after her children's middle name ‘Blade’ and ‘Rose’. A true powerhouse of creativity, with bold colours and fun details for little boys and girls.
The most adorable shoes for little ones! Founded by footwear designer Catriona, after having her daughter Layla - she is not her own boss and brings us the most gorgeous designs and styles for little for boys and girls.
Founded by Alice Goldsmith and Georgie Parr in December 2014, this powerhouse dungarees, love what they do and is a true start-up. They only do one thing: dungarees! We ave to say they are pretty awesome at doing just that :)
