I want to put a plug in for a friend of mine. She has started a wonderful baby boutique in St. Louis, Lovely Lullabies Boutique. It features high quality baby furniture, decor, toys, gifts for Mom, special occasion items (like for baptism/christening) and other items you don’t see in the typical department store. It is a quality start-up, and it has online shopping available. There are items for the expectant mother before delivery as well.
I don’t usually advertise for businesses, but I wanted to see if I could drive a little traffic to her site, as the timing wasn’t ideal for a new business considering the economic slowdown. You won’t be disappointed. If you want a choice other than Wal-Mart or Carters, then I strongly encourage you to check out Lovely Lullabies Boutique, whether online or in person.
