We are an online baby shop located in Perth, view our shop page for our range of products. Alternatively, read the blog on how I came across my first baby shop stockist who in turn has turned out to be a great friend.
I remember the first day I met Jo from Sosi A Shop for Little People. It was when I was buying presents and it became my go-to baby shop near me to buy those endless newborn baby gifts.
While there we had a chat and I mentioned my businesses and how I handmade everything from home. Next thing I know my handmade burping pads and bibs are stocked in one of the coolest baby shops Perth!
As I brought a lot of my presents from Jo’s baby shop the supplier/customer relationship quickly turned into a friendship. We got to know each other’s families. Even having my husband drop off the stock and taking my daughter in for visits.
Since then she has helped me at many of the PBC Expo’s and regularly at the Perth Upmarket. We are also planning to work with each other in the future. However, we are keeping this under wraps at the moment but stay tuned!
It was such a sad day when I learned that SoSi’s baby shop in Perth was closing down. Unfortunately, it seems to be a bit of a trend recently with the closure. Some of Australians largest baby shops have closed including Babies R Us, Toys R Us, baby savings, baby bounce and bubs baby store.
The shift seems to be for people to move their baby shops online similar to ours. We find that an online store for babies suits our small business but would one day love to have a brick and mortar store. This is so people can come in and see the gorgeous designs and feel the quality of the handmade items.
However, for now, we will continue to supply our lovely stockists around Australia and hope to start stocking shops overseas. Although it was extremely sad to see SoSi’s baby shop close we still catch up for a coffee together. I might have lost a stockist but gained a true friend.
