Almost Ready To Launch

Sunday, July 27, 2014
This week, my new online store for kids, at is finally opening its virtual doors! And I can tell you it has been a whole lot of hard work, late nights, working weekends and busy nap times for me! Its Sunday afternoon and my family is hanging out, but I am hiding away in the study, tweaking webpages, adding products, sorting out orders and book-keeping! SO much to do, but I really cannot complain, I love it, and its so nice to see a long time dream turning into a reality, and I'm so, so thankful to have a supportive husband who is behind me 100%, he has even declared himself to be 'the warehouse beast' and has gone about storing/stacking/organising all the products and ordering all the shipping materials, he sure is a keeper! 

Some days I wake up with that, oh crap, this is actually happening, what if it all goes terribly, and you know that little niggly bit of self-doubt sneaks in and messes with your head! And then, I just have to push it aside, focus on working hard, and follow my gut! And hope that everyone loves these products and brands as much as I do! 

So on Wednesday morning (8am AEST) all will be revealed. We have such amazing brands on board! I honestly just LOVE them all so much, I want to keep everything for myself!  Then, over the next weeks and month we will have plenty more arriving.

I am constantly discovering new and amazing designers and brands, many are small businesses and parents working at all crazy hours to follow their dreams, it is really inspiring seeing what these lovely creatives and making and designing! 

Here are a few sneak peaks of what you can expect to find at theYellow Dandy Shop!

I am also planning to open with a bit of a bang, so if you don't want to miss out, make sure you subscribe to the shop email newsletter in the sidebar!! 

Thank you everyone for all your kind words and support! It really is so great having such a supportive online community when you are venturing out into something new. 

Although I've been pretty busy and haven't done much blogging lately, I'm still hanging out a lot on Instagram, so come find me there! At @yellowdandy or @yellowdandyshop
