    Hi everyone,

    My name is Tracey and I’ve been steadily investing my time into opening my own online store.

    I’m a mum to a gorgeous almost 4 month old boy and spending all this time with him has just giving me the incentive to try and make it on my own! Eeek!

    I guess I am one of ‘those’ people that is opening “another” online children’s clothing and accessory store. I know it will be a very tough and competitive market. I do have a little niche though, so hopefully this will bring traffic to my site. I will be handmaking some of my own items and also being a stockist of some good quality items (both Australian and US).

    I’ve already setup my website (big cartel), got my blog up and running and facebook page setup. I’ve also lodged my application for a ABN # and business name so am just waiting for all that to be finalised.

    At the moment I am just trying to build up my blog and also my instagram page to gather some interest first. Then I will launch my facebook page and I will test the market a little. I’m planning on offering some handmade items for people to test, and ask them to provide me with feedback and photos for my store. After this I may possibly try to get some pre-orders going before I officially launch my online store in May.

    Looking forward to being apart of the community!

    Thanks for the welcome Jason :)

    Haha! I am very lucky, he generally only wakes twice throughout the night for feeds and that’s it.

    I’ve updated my signature. Hopefully it works. Website is still work in progress at this moment.

    Great to hear that’s it a warm and welcoming community, glad to be apart of it.
