In May 2010 we won a Support a WAHP 'In the Spotlight' interview, all thanks to the wonderful fans who voted for us in their competition. Below is some of the resulting interview that gives a sneak peek into the person and philosophy behind our business.
Tell us a little about the person behind the business...
My name is Jennifer Frost and I am the person behind From 1 Mum 2 Another—Children’s Clothing Exchange. I was first introduced to the joys of shopping for baby clothing in 2009 when my son was born. It wasn’t long before I found I was constantly buying new clothes as baby Jordan outgrew things so quickly. Other parents I spoke to were in the same situation and had closets bursting at the seams with clothes and toys in almost new condition that their children had outgrown. I have a Bachelor of Business and have always wanted to run my own venture. With a passion for the environment, a need to smartly manage the family budget, and a love of really cute kids wear, it seemed natural to create a Children’s Clothing Exchange. With the time and resource restrictions that come with being devoted to a young family, I was excited by the opportunity presented by the Internet in allowing me to open an ‘e-store’.
And now a little about the business itself?
Children grow so fast but keeping them well dressed does not need to be expensive. At From 1 Mum 2 Another you will find a fantastic range of gently worn baby and kids wear at prices of up to 80% off original retail. Best of all we take the stress out of shopping – simply jump online any place, any time it suits you!
To ensure your satisfaction we personally hand pick all clothing and provide detailed, accurate descriptions regarding items and their condition. All items are laundered, fresh and clean, ready to wear.
You can also “exchange” your own children’s items for store credit or cash. This means your quality items don’t go to waste! For more information about membership please see our website or contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
What motivates you to keep your business going?
As parents we care about our families and our family finances, the communities we live in and the health of the environment. Buying recycled means reusing what we already have. This can only be better for the environment, and because it is sold for less than it’s original RRP – better for our wallets too!
It is an appreciation for the opportunity that From1Mum2Another.com presents, to both help the planet through reuse and recycle as well as to stretch the family budget further, that keeps me motivated.
Do you have a current best-selling product or service?
Our best selling items so far have been gently worn clothing in like-new condition from brands such as Pumpkin Patch, Osh Kosh and LeBon.
