Retailer of the Month is Rae Baby from New Zealand who just added Bergstein, Fozia, Ígló, Shampoodle, Pili Pala, Poco Nido and Boys&Girls to their fantastic selection of brands.
Rhubarb Republik contacted Lee Turner from Rae Baby and asked her to introduce herself and her shop.
Who are you: Lee Turner, Mummy, wife, teacher, and when I have a spare minute, me!
Where do you live: Napier, New Zealand.
What happened: I have been a primary classroom teacher for the last 10 years and am currently on maternity leave with my 3 daughters aged 3, 2 and 7 months. I have always been interested in sewing and crafts and make a lot of my children’s clothes so you could say I have a passion for petite fashion. I had initially thought that I would sell the clothing I make but after a trial run I realized how time consuming it was, especially with 3 pre-schoolers. While trawling through some of my favorite Facebook pages I came across the Rhubarb Republik page which instantly caught my eye. It all happened much easier than I expected with some encouragement from my husband, a willing bank, and of course outstanding support and advice from RR. So here we are with Rae Baby, a way to share the things I love and that I hope will grow as people experience the quality of our products and the care in our service.
