    Hello all,

    We just wanted to introduce ourselves.

    Our names are Cassandra & Charmaine, two lifelong friends who after years of talking about opening an online store have decided to make our dream a reality. We are Mashed Banana and will be selling babies & kid’s clothing, accessories and shoes (and things for mums and dads too!).

    We are currently in our logo and web design phase and have already secured some brilliant suppliers of some trully awesome stuff which we think will do really well to serve all sorts of families, no matter what their styles.

    We are just so excited to venture into business together as partners. We have been friends for just over 30 years and even had our babies at the same time, a boy and a girl who themselves are cheeky little monkeys. We just love the idea of being able to offer customers the things that we adore for the little people in our lives, to the little people in their lives. We know we are going to have fun doing it and hopefully make the experience as our customer second to none.

    We hope to be launching really soon!

    We look forward to getting to know you all, this forum has been amazing so far in helping us start up, I hope I don’t inundate it with too many questions for advice :)

    Sincerely
    Cassandra & Charmaine
    Founders of Mashed Banana
    Things that are funky for your cheeky little monkey.

    Hi Cassandra and Charmaine,

    Welcome to the world of online retailing. I started an online homewares store with one of my friends around 12 months ago. It was a little slow to start out but is starting to gain a bit of momentum. For the most part it’s been a lot of fun.

    Good luck with it all !

    Regards

    Hannah

    Hi Cassandra and Charmaine,

    Welcome to the forums! Sounds like an exciting concept and working with your best mate must be great fun and obviously your business is a shared passion.

    Although if I teamed up with my best mate we’d no doubt get distracted by conversations like ‘which is better, Twilight or Hunger Games?’ and get to the end of the day and find we’ve not done any work!

    If you like you can add a signature to your posts, via ‘control panel’ in the top left.

    Really pleased to hear the FS forums have provided useful info so far and I hope it continues to do so.

    All the best to the Mashed Banana team,

    Sam

    Hi Cassandra and Charmaine,

    What you’re doing sounds fantastic! I hope you’re having an easy time communicating with your web designer.

    I work for a small digital marketing agency that specialises in working with small businesses. We are actually looking for a business that sells babies and children’s clothing, shoes etc to work with at the moment – we only work with one business in each industry. If you’re interested please feel free to send me a message or an email :)
