Pretty Cute Kiddies Boutique was founded in March 2012. This business was a viewers choice nomination. Pretty Cute Kiddies Boutique is owned by Christelle Bester. This new business started with just a Facebook page created by a friend and has now blossomed and is ready to start employing additional staff.
Where did PrettyCuteBoutique Start?
My baby had to have a matching hair accessory with every outfit, so I started to make them to match, everyone loved my headbands and clips, so I started to make them for gifts. Then it was 1st Birthday time, I wanted her to look extra cute, so I made her a tutu, again everyone loved it and started placing orders.I had been thinking of starting my own business for a while, but wanted to do something creative, just didnt know what...Then this just happened. A friend from Lithe media helped me start a FB page and website and it just grew from there. I got bored with the tutus, and started making Duvet sets, and some other items. Everything I wanted for my daughter, I started making.
What other products do you do now do? - Cot Sets - Duvet Covers
- matching plush toys
- Name scatter cushions
- Bunting flags
- hair accessories
- hair clip holders
Where do you get your ideas from? - Everything!! From an earring to a picture on a babygrow, wallaper,advert. once I get started there's no stopping!
What makes your products unique? Everything is Completely hand made, hand appliqued and every single one is different. I custom make items to my customers requirements and I do not repeat that same item. One of a kind.
Who works with you? I do basically everything myself, hubby will cut flowers now and then and I have aunty Dot doing crochet work for me.
Where do you stock your products?
I have not really had much time to start marketing as i have had so many orders to keep up with, but I do supply to Baby bump Maternity wear & Kids stuff in George and Lille and Duzy in Worcester.
What are your plans for the future? I would like to employ some ladies from the local old age home to do stiching and crochet work
I would also like to employ some African ladies from our community to help me start an african range. Definately try to make a difference in our country, by creating jobs and by bringing joy to children who need it most.
