Exciting news! (and changes ahead)


We have something exciting to tell you… No, no-one is pregnant, but it did take about 9 months to develop! Next week, on the first of June, we’re launching a new website. It will be a shopping portal, where we’ll present to you a selection of our favourite online children’s boutiques!

We feel that the last year or so, online shopping has become so much better. Payment systems are easy and trustable, shipments (usually) arrive, and the variety of shops is great. And it is just so easy for us, busy mums, to sit down behind our computers after the kids are in bed and to browse our favourite boutiques for some fun (and necessary) shopping!

It can however be a bit tricky to find the best boutiques. Search engines don’t  select quality, just quantity, and sometimes the best boutiques are hidden under pages and pages of, well, less interesting choices. Over the past years we have been working with loads of great boutiques, and we’ve invited them to become a member of our portal. Of course it will be a work in progress — we will be adding new and exciting shops all the time, but we’re starting out with a very handsome selection already. We’re already addicted!

So… stay tuned. We’re finishing everything up in the coming week, and next week on Wednesday… We’ll go shopping together!

Esther, Courtney and Emilie

P.S. Don’t worry — we’ll keep the blog, it won’t change it all!

Congrats girls! Exciting change and will be fun to use the new feature!

Congrats! Sure the choices will be great..

A question: Will it be EU-based? (lately, Spanish customs are really a nightmare with imports and all parcels get delayed until payment of VAT and customs is made – and this is not only for the money but also for the burden to go to the airport and spend a whole morning trying to get your parcel)

Carmen,
I hope you don’t mind if I reply (I run an online store http://www.bigbluecuddle.com). Orders from any European country should not be blocked by customs or be charged VAT. For orders from outside Europe, e.g. the US, you could try one of those shopping services like http://www.usunlocked.com.
Hope this helps,
Lara
