As many of you will know, I started Rock It Tots over 4 years ago. My youngest of three kids under 4 was just a babe of 8 months and I was coming to the end of my maternity allowance with no job to go back to and about £200 to my name. I saw some second hand equipment on Gumtree, taught myself to use it and the rest, as they say, is history!
Those 4 years have flown by, but they have also been a lifetime in many ways. During that time, I have had many struggles with my mental health - struggles that I would try to keep hidden by putting "the mask" of coping on (something I'm sure many of you will relate to) even though I felt totally empty inside.
Happy Small Business Saturday folks!
To celebrate, I am offering 20% off all orders over £20 until midnight Sunday! To claim enter the code SBS20 at checkout. To read more about Rock It Tots and what goes into a typical day running a small kids' clothing business, I would be delighted if you read my post here.
Happy shopping and remember to #shopsmall this weekend! :)
So today is Small Business Saturday 2017! It's a day for local and independent businesses up and down the country to shout about themselves through the din created by the giants of the high street and net. There are so many wonderful small businesses out there that are the unsung heroes of the UK economy. Rock It Tots is just a drop in the ocean, but here's a bit more about who you're (hopefully!) buying from!
I'm Hannah, a 30-something mum of 3 fierce girls - twins aged 7 and the boss of the house aged 4.
Rock It Tots is my 3rd business (3rd time lucky!) and I started it in 2013 when my littlest Rock It Tot was just 7m old and my maternity allowance was about to run out! Having 3 kids 3 and under was going to mean crippling childcare bills and so I knew I had to find something I could do from home and work around them.
As all my items are carefully handmade or printed, I will be closing off orders for Christmas Delivery at 10pm on 10th December.
Orders may still be placed after this date, but as I will be stopping for a much-needed Christmas break on 18th December, there is no guarantee that you will receive it before the New Year. If you really need something, feel free to get in touch to ask, however, this will depend on my outstanding workload!
Thank you so much for your support this Christmas - I will be getting up at 4-5am and going to bed after midnight to make sure you have your orders in time and mainly assisted by caffeine and determination! Where are Santa's elves when you need them?! Please be assured though that I am truly honoured that you have chosen to place your order for cool baby & kids' clothes with Rock It Tots - please support as many small, independent businesses as you can this season - we need you!
Merry Christmas to all when it comes!
