Baby Wisp® Turns 10!

A small shop selling hairbows starts at a farmer’s market and ends up becoming an international brand and a sustainable family business.  Does this sound possible?  I mean more clearly – I can operate as a working mom full time and still take my kids to and from school and all their lessons and playdates and STILL run a successful business?  We only sell hair bows and there are millions of hair bow companies out there – what makes us so different that we could last ten years?

I ask myself this.

And the answer is – I don’t really know!  But I’m extremely grateful and happy that this is the case.  I actually made it 10 years as a small business in a niche market (such as this one with such low barriers to entry) – and here I am!  Wooohooo!  C -e – l – e- b – r – a – t – e !! I’m pretty sure it’s because of other moms though.  Like 99% sure.

What I see now is people are actively seeking brands with a story, with unique offerings and original designs and ideas.  Could this be it?  I’m not going to lie about the pressures from places like Amazon (that make it really hard to compete from a price perspective) – but our people are less about price, more about quality, more about supporting other business women and local shops and more about finding pieces that accessorize their baby in less of a mass market way.   That’s the commonality I see among my customers when I chat with them and their instagram feeds.

When you first have a baby girl and you spend time and energy dressing her up in a cute outfit – are you really going to ruin it with  – pardon my candor – a low quality run of the mill dollar store bow?  What’s the point of that?   This is how I started after all.  I had my baby and felt this way.  I wanted to match her outfits perfectly with the perfect subtle hair accessory and now I’m sharing this with other moms who feel the same way.  Thankfully, there’s lots of you out there!! LOL THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!

I have a blog post about Baby Wisp 10 year anniversary up on babywisp.com that you can read if you are interested more in my story.  I thought for now, I would tell you about the specials I have going for our anniversary month!

The pinstripes are bang on what’s happening in the women’s fashion world so why not for baby girl, toddler girl or even school girl.  The size range available on this dress is perfect for sisterly coordinating!  I love that the florals are vibrant and the Chantilly Chelsea Bow set gives you options to switch up the look every time baby girl wears this dress!

The dress from Old Navy above can be worn with so many colors as the colonial rose color is like a cinammon spice that’s been on trend for clothes since the fall.

 

This yellow and grey combo from H&M kids is a basic that isn’t too statement and can be a mini-me type outfit so mommy can coordinate with an outfit.  It could be grown up but top it with our cute pastel tuxedo grosgrain five pack and it’s accessorized right.  Do you have some shoe suggestions?

Sage Plant Leaves Next To new SAGE GREEN Bows

Look at this picture of the green grosgrain ribbon bows next to clippings from my Sage Plant.  It really was the only logical choice in the colour naming.

What I love most about this green is that it can be worn with so many colours like in the photo below, this two year old wore it with a navy blue sweater.

Girls Who Love Big Bows

What’s new at Baby Wisp this month is NEW Huge Boutique bows on pinch clips for girl’s Christmas dresses… just in time for the holiday season.  We had previously found the market so hard to get noticed in but suddenly with our entry into Amazon, we have a chance for moms to find the modern colours and shapes they need to accessorize their stylish girls’ outfits.  We had so many requests for bows for older girls so that moms who have known and trusted their baby girls and toddlers to us, can still come back for more bows as they get older.

Huge bows for little girls

This photo shows our largest 8 inch Grosgrain Ribbon Boutique Bows on cute tweenagers who love making statements…I mean making a statement in the fashion sense of course ;)!

Hipster Babies?  How do you know you have one?

Ask yourself a few questions: Is your baby wearing hammer (harem) pants, lulu lemon baby leggings (joke!), other baby yoga gear, slouchy toque, infinity scarf, oversized glasses, converse or mom jeans?     Is your baby a hipster baby hanging out at coffee shops in her buffalo plaid sling?

Then you’re not dressing her in pink bows.

Hipster Baby Bows

This is the baby bow gift set for you as there is no pink but the colours are bang on with top hipsterish color schemes in baby fashion trends.  What a unique gift for baby girls to impress at a baby shower or just give a little edgy style to your little one.

Some other news as we celebrate the latest fall collection (it has already pre-sold from east to west coast!)  is noting that our partnership with the Children’s product distributor KidCentral Supply has now completed SIX years together.  The biggest reason I feel that we continue to work so well with each other is the VP there.  She’s amazing.  She gives me feedback with her ear to the ground on the trends I need to focus on and helping us market the product well.   The competent team there knows what they are doing and I’m so grateful for all the support over the years.  Baby Wisp® has been around now for NINE years and so much of the brand’s success and visibility is due to this partnership with Kidcentral.  They are able to keep hundreds of shops (brick and online) stocked!  I truly am thankful that even through our move to the USA, they have continued to support this brand  Thanks Daniela, for everything.
