It's almost 2010!

I can't believe where this year has gone...and boy what a year it has been! We started the year with the two shops and we are finishing the year with two shops again, the difference being Hampton is no longer and we now have the online shop!

We are also starting the New Year with a massive Summer Clearance both online and in the shop. We are getting ready for the new season winter 2010. Of course we have started receiving the lovely new things from Fred Bare.

It's very exciting this time of the year for us at Little by Little. Every time we see the delivery guys our heart starts beating a little faster...not because they are George Clooney's clone or something but we know that new goodies will be delivered.

For our Fred Bare customers here is a sneak look at the new season...




Also to all you gorgeous customers, I hope you have a fabulous New Year!

New Fred Bare in Store


Every year around Christmas we have come to expect Fred Bare to give us an exceptional red and white story and this year once again they have delivered. The print is beautiful and we have it in dress, tops and baby. They have followed in through to the boys not with the same print but with gorgeous red shorts and an elegant white shirt with red and blue.

The range has just arrived in store and we are excited!

Also this week I have decided to reduce the sale items by an extra 25% Off, meaning there are great bargains on current season sale stock.

Lastly, all Cocoon Couture Bean Bags and Lelli Kelly shoes will be reduced by 25% for this week only.

Happy shopping!

A Little by Little Superstar!



I just had to post these gorgeous images of a Little by Little superstar, Miss Sophie.

I just love it when Sophie pays me a visit. Apart from her magical smile, Sophie's dazzling personality fills the shop. And boy does Sophie know what she likes in fashion. Mum Fiona has her work cut-out for her.

Sophie also looks fabulous in Little by Little's summer '09 fashions...Look out Miranda Kerr!

PJ's, PJ's, and even more PJ's


I love PJ's! I love getting them as pressies and I love giving them as a pressie and those who know me well, will have received PJ's, and of course a great magazine to go with them, as a gift at some time!

Hence, when I am doing my buying I am always on the lookout for great ones for the kids. This season I have been spoilt as most of my suppliers have great ones.

Purebaby's range is amazing, firstly they use the softs fabrics to touch and secondly they now go to a size 7 for both boys and girls. Not only are there PJs but nighties as well. Those who have girls know how hard it is to find nighties,

Today we received the whimsical and feminine Lazybones range as well. Yellows, pinks, blues, ribbons and lace what every princess needs! Some of these are too cute to sleep, I know many little girls that wear the nighties as dresses and the PJ tops as tops with jeans so on...

Come in and have a look.

Busy Buying Winter 10

What a busy week this has been! Apart from the fact that the Gift Fair was on (more about that later), I have been busy with appointments for Winter 10. I know most of you haven't gotten over this winter but we are busy buying next winter and for some brands, summer 10/11. This week I have seen the lovely things that GAIA had to offer, Chalk and Cheese, ORF (love, love, love!) and today I am off to see Big and Fiona. I can't wait!

Buying is by far my favourite thing. The anticipation to see what is coming, the beautiful fabrics, textures, colours all make this process that best part of my job. Even though I am definitely a summer person, I love the fashions for winter, the coates, dress, pants, blouses!

As for the gift fair, we have stocked up very well for Christmas, books and vintage toys, bags and accessories, there will be something for everyone for Christmas this year. One of my favourite brands at the Gift Fair was San Cerre and the lovely Sarah. WOW! Has she been creative or what. I can't wait to show you her lovely things.

Everything is slowly coming in store, we anticipate Two Belles and Tommy Rocket this week along with more Fred Bare, Fiona, Big and Trelise Cooper. One Red Fly is being delivered today with their white and silver story being in this delivery.

See you soon.

New Season Trelise Cooper & Big by Fiona Scanlan In Store Now




Our first drop of Trelise Cooper Summer 09/10 has arrived! And has not disappointed!

In true Trelise style her collection this summer is colourful, luxurious and as always borders on the avant garde. She has the amazing ability to bridge the gap between clothing and costumes, creating a look that all little girls (and their mothers) adore.

The divine 'Shimmer of Hope' sequinned tanks in ballet and black have arrived and go back beautifully with the 'Groovers and Shakers' tulle tiered skirt also in ballet and black. We have popped these in the window and as always with Trelise they have caused much conversation and a bit of a buying frenzy!

We have also received our first drop of Big & Fiona by Fiona Scanlan. Consisting at this stage of stunning kaftans in white & raspberry and funky 3/4 pants. These are stunning together or can be mixed and matched with the Fred Bare basic denim.

Stay tuned for further updates! We are due to get a couple of big drops over the next week or so and are very much looking forward to receiving the much anticipated first drop of Two Belles & Tommy Rocket Summer 09/10.

We look forward to seeing you in store soon.

Someday...


I love reading. I love my children reading. One thing throughout the years I have never said no to is books. Books enrich our lives, take us to different times, different countries, different worlds. Books warm our soul.

Recently we received a new book called "Someday". It was highly recommended to me for the shops so I thought to read it before putting on the shelf for sale.

I was so touched by this book, I burst into tears there and then in the shop. I can only imagine what my customers thought when they walked in a saw my red eyes. It's a book about the love we mothers have for our children and special moments we share. How many of us have sat there looking at out babies sleeping and marvelled at the beauty we have created.

Needless to say all the girls in the shop have read it.

Another great one is "Ten Little Fingers...".

Two Belles and Tommy Rockets Summer 09


Those who know me will know how much I love Two Belles and Tommy Rocket. The lovely Nat from the brand was nice enough to send me their summer 09 images so here is a look at what to expect from them...So fresh and fun. For more images click on to the pictures to go to our website's What's New page. The brand keeps getting better and better! What will they do next for winter 10? H.
