Tis the Season!

It's been way to long! Happy Halloween, Happy Thanksgiving and now Merry Christmas! We hope everyone is doing well!
We've made a lot of changes since we blogged last!
Our biggest change is we have moved into our new location!

We're now located at: 4495 Roosevelt Blvd. Suite 310, Jacksonville, FL 32210. Our phone number is still the same- 904-551-0214. We're open Monday-Saturday 10-6 and closed on Sundays.

Hopefully, everyone has made it out to our new store! We have a lot of new items as well as the popular items from our previous store. Our newest addition is our new boys Rugged Butts Line.

This line is perfect for any little man who loves dressing up like his daddy! It comes with adorable denim and tan pants, Button Down shirts, pull over vest and handsome ties.

Along with Rugged Butts, we also are now carrying the popular Books to Bed! This collection has been a huge hit! It comes in a variety of popular children's books for both boys and girls.

We're adding new items to the store daily and hopefully we'll be able to keep the blog updated as frequent as possible!

I am having so much fun getting to know all of you sweet customers! It's so rewarding seeing new moms coming in when they first find out they're pregnant. They're so excited to be pregnant and just want to buy something special for their sweet little one- even if they have 9 months to go! All of us moms have been there! You almost want to buy something just to convince yourself that you really are pregnant! Then as the time goes on, we see you more and more frequently, and finally we get to meet your sweet baby! I just want to say thank you for including us!

On another side, I've got to meet many new designers and aspiring momtrepreneurs! It's so much fun getting to meet all of the new and up in coming designers and businesses! We can't wait to announce many of them in our Spring Collections.

Lastly, we're currently doing a Christmas Cuties Contest on our facebook page! For the past week our customers have been submitting photos of their little Christmas Cuties! Then, we placed them all in an album so that they can have their friends like our fan page and then like their photo. The deadline to vote is December 23rd at midnight, Eastern Standard Time. The photo with the most likes will then win a $100 gift card to our store.

Incase we don't blog before Christmas we hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas! We hope you get to spend quality time with your friends and family and enjoy the true meaning of Christmas!

Now, I am currently going to wrap presents for my own Christmas Cutie! Thanks again for shopping with us and please let me know if you ever have a problem, complaint, suggestions... whatever! We also love hearing positive compliments as well!
Merry Christmas! xoxo

Spring has Sprung!

We're here... I promise! Things have been so hectic at the shop lately! Between working on orders, trying to create new designs, setting up photo shoots, traveling to market to find new items, keeping up with emails, phone calls, facebook, twitter, blog etc..... we're still here and our company is still thriving!

We've welcomed some new designers into our boutique family!
Our newest item to display is Padalily! We're so excited to be the only retailer in Jacksonville to carry this amazing mom friendly product! If you're not local feel free to browse our online store for all the adorable patterns Padalily has to offer!

Another new line that we're excited to share is our diaper bag collection from Kalencom.

Kalencom diaper bags are sophisticated baby bags that provide the modern mom all the practical needs of a nappy bag but also the style that benefits a modern diaper bag. Kalencom excels at creating designer diaper bags that are rich variety of colors and designs that have set them apart from any other designer diaper bag line. Many celebrities such as Angelina Jolie and Tori Spelling have been seen with these ultra stylish bags!

Along with the above items we also have several new clothing and shoe lines we'll be adding within the next few weeks.

With that being said.... we've noticed that several people have either came in the store or called to place an order and we were out of stock for that item. We know how frustrating it can be when you really want something and it's on backorder or sold out. Most of the time once we receive a new item- we sell out of it within a couple of days. That can be a problem! Trust me- I would much rather have this problem instead of having a ton of stuff and not being able to sell it- but it's still a problem. Our KC team has been talking and planning a variety of ways to have more inventory and keep more inventory while still selling a LOT of inventory. One solution we have came up with is beginning Monday, May 2 we will be launching our Facebook Store. This store will be completely separate from our retail store and our online store. We will simply do 4 to 5 listings Monday-Saturday at noon with items that are in stock ready for immediate shipping. We will also have the same items available in store for locals to come and pick up as well. These sales can either be payed through paypal or over the phone and will be shipped directly to you. We will also have shipments arriving 3 times a week in store which should keep things updated frequently.
We have been very blessed with a ton of amazing customers all throughout the US and facebook seems to be the best way to reach our fans all over. Along with having sales throughout the day- we will be hiring a couple more people to help assist with orders and in our shipping department.
We're so excited about our new expansion- it's just the beginning of many dreams and goals I have for this company! We can't share all of our plans just yet but I can't wait to open more stores in other cities and states!

Just like many of you- I'm a mom and wife first! I'm not always at the store but my team of girls are more than ready to help with any of your questions. If you ever have any problems please let me know! We can't possibly keep every customer happy but we will do our best to give you the best customer service and the highest quality items. If you ever have any problems or concerns you can either call the store and leave a message for me (Renee) or email us at You are the reason we are in business so please let me know if you need anything!

For all of you other Mompreneurs- Good Luck! I remember in the beginning trying to get my products out there and hoping people would love them just as much as I did! Stay positive and your company will do wonderful! With todays market being so saturated with the same things- try to think outside of the box! Overall, my biggest advice is to pray! I know it sounds very cliche but I promise you I've been praying for my store to do well since I was in high school and didn't even have a store yet! Every night when we are saying our prayers with our little girl we pray for my store, when I wake up I pray for large sales that day, throughout the day my mind will think about the store and I'll say a quick prayer for a great day. One of the girls at the store laughs at me because I'm always saying 'quick' prayers to the Lord to help me... and he does!

We hope everyone had a Happy Easter! We can't wait to see all of your Easter pictures! Have a great rest of the week!
Love, Renee
