Closing down......


After much deliberation & consideration we have decided to close the doors of our little store in Baylis Street & return to the online world. The crazy of life has finally all caught up with us. I think I have felt every emotion & thoughts through my body, sadness, confusion, anger, contentment, happiness, excitement, opportunity.
I have been able to see the light at the end of the tunnel for some time now but really didn't want to go through it. I know that I wanted to be able to be the mum i should be, the wife Dave needs me to be, be the friend I need to be & find myself again. The tunnel seemed so scary.

The page is finally turning on life for me, the weight is lifting & I am looking forward to being everything I need to be. Packing up the dream, I know now that this shop isn't going to cry for me at my funeral. Sure why don't I put someone in the shop to work for me, we have considered that. The answer was: it would take another month to find the right person, get them up & running your now looking at two months down the track, trust them to do the right thing & love the store the way that I have, still controlling all the background of the business from home which would still eat into my little families time that I have deprived them of for too long. To be fair to the most important people to me, time isn't something I have, and you can't buy time or love.

We are going to go back to the start - online (revamped), with a few of our top sellers.
Our closing down sale will start Monday 28 February with a progressive sale starting at 25% off storewide. The percentage will go up to 50% storewide, watch our facebook page & store billboard to see what the daily percentage is. Our store hours will be changing over the next week or two.

I would like to thank all the customers that have come in over these past couple of years. I am going to be sad not to see all the little faces in the prams that have grown up over that time.
My dear Mum & Dad said to me this week "onward & upward" & "you get one chance at life".
Happy days ahead!
