I have a new plan. I am opening a business. A small baby consignment boutique for trendy baby clothing, as well as great new items. I plan on opening at the beginning of March, after I dig myself a nice big hole of debt. I will be working on the business Thursday-Sunday anytime and M/T/W evenings. The plan? A website (in the works-check out to see the great designer we have on board), cards and a lot of time spreading the word. The business will be based out of our basement (yes its fully finished) and I will have racks of clothing of all baby sizes, baby accessories and a nice little baby-friendly area, plus a pot of coffee on brew. It will be open by appointment only but I also plan on taking pics of all items and offering delivery service, in our area, for a set minimum purchase. How will this work? You email me the size your looking for, I email you all the pics, you choose what you want. Eventually an e-commerce business will take shape, but thats a tall order! AND...An ebay store is in the works as well. Business name? The Elephant Room, elephant decor of course. Something pretty, simple, mom-geared.

Why? I want to stay home with Cade, and I love to shop and this seems like a fun option. I also find trendy baby clothes to be far too expensive and my ultimate goal is to make stylish clothing affordable. Long range-perhaps open a store? We'll see though, thats an entire other level of comittment.

Stay tuned for more info and if you or someone you know has stylish baby clothes to consign or sell me, give me a shout! I set up an preliminary email for the store:
