    Hi everyone

    I am planning on opening a baby/children’s shop near me.

    Just in the planning/researching/learning stage at the moment! Any advice on anything is welcome! I am basically starting from scratch in terms of my knowledge of the retail industry. I know that might sound crazy, but I am excited & determined to do this!

    Anyone who currently has a similar business – I would be very grateful for your help!

    Cheers!
    Claire

    Hey Claire, and welcome. Where are you located? Will you be doing clothing, or toys, or accessories, all of the above or something else?

    Very smart looking too Bec. Almost retro, like a 50s purse. You’ve got quite a few designs there.

    Thanks! We have more on the way too!

    We’ll be sourcing the most gorgeous ipad cases we can find, so stock will rotate quite regularly :-)

    We’re very excited to be sharing these amazing designs plus many more to come!
