Items You Need For The Stylish Baby
Saturday, January 23, 2016
As mentioned last week, today I have the pleasure of introducing you to another favorite seller of mine from nebrowse.
Every single day I am blown away by the talent and creativity of the people I get to work with on nebrowse, people like you and I just doing what they love, it's truly one of my favorite parts of running this site.
I noticed Lonna's store, Glittered Pickles, immediately. She has the type of shop where even though almost all of her items are children related, someone like me (who doesn't have kids) still looks at her stuff and thinks, okay that is awesome. Who can I buy that for?
Like take for example these faux leather leggings.
Or this adorable teepee teether and bib set.
But I've said enough, I think you can all tell I'm a fan. Here's a little more info about Lonna and how she started creating her own awesome baby items.
1. What prompted you to start your own store?
I've always been a maker. I remember making doll clothes with my sisters in my grandma's basement using her fabric scraps! The store kind of naturally happened when my sister and I started making things for my nieces and my daughter. We would make things for our own children and people started to ask if we would make things for them!
2. All of your items are so cute, where do you get inspiration to create them?
I think most of my inspiration comes from my own children and what they are into at the moment! Oakleigh ends up with a lot of things that you can't typically find in the "girl" section while shopping.
She has older brothers and loves the things they love! When we found Avengers knit fabric she had to have leggings! My niece Milly loves mermaids so we have gone through mermaid phases and Ruby loves dinosaurs so we of course had to make dinosaur jewelry for her!
3. What has been your favorite part of running your own business?
I love the flexibility and freedom of creating what I want when I want! I love working with customers on custom orders and getting all excited with them when everything comes together! I LOVE getting new fabric in the mail! It's also been really fun working with other shops. I've been working with AllyB Designs a lot lately and it's been so fun getting to know her!
4. What has been your most popular item?
My most popular item has definitely been the Nebraska Corn organic cotton leggings! I'm always super excited when I sell a pair of those because I hand painted that design myself. When I was working on designing that fabric I wasn't sure if anyone would ever want to buy them! It was the first fabric I ever designed myself!
5. What are your current favorites you have listed?
I love all of the little baby legging and hat sets right now! My favorite fabric is the jewel tone floral. It's bright and cheery without being overly girly! Shop LuluBea (my sister) and I are working on a big Disney vacation themed release and I'm super excited for those!!!
Now do you see why I'm such a fan? I want to buy all of her things for my friends' babies and upcoming baby showers. To see more of Lonna's items, I suggest you start here or here. Make sure to follow nebrowse on Instagram @nebrowse to see upcoming giveaways.
