Reading Up on the Industry August 19, 2009

DSC06959As most people do – we read up on what is going on in our industry – what are moms thinking about, talking about, reading about!?

Well Kiwi Magazine is a great place to get a lot of great resources – people love reading about ways to green their home, how to gear up for another back to school August, and what is fashionable!

Here we are at a yummy little French Bakery – eating our fine herbes omelettes and wonderful hot chocolate – reading up on Kiwi Magazine. The childrens industry is such a happy place – and its great that we are in an industry where people are out to help nurture healthy happy babies – as we like to do at Sama Baby.

Chicks who Click, I mean Chicks Who Clink, Bottomless Wine is Belly Bliss! January 10, 2009

Colorado Road Trip - Beautiful Roads!

Colorado Road Trip - Beautiful Roads!

Day 2: Starting at 7 AM, we headed straight over to Ft. Collins, and if you really want to hear a crazy day read this..

So of course, being the workaholics that we are, we decided to fit in everything we could imagine into one day..

Met with Clothes Pony – a baby boutique we would rate 5 out of 5 in terms of awesome selection of toys, classes, clothes, and passionate individuals that love their store – and unique lines. We met them at ABC Kids, but it was even better to see them in person one on one!

Then of course, driving around N College Ave, we found some great stores like Eco Logic. Apparently the Colorado state has created these Eco stores that are all encompassing from kitchen gadgets all the way to of course fashionable baby clothes – which is where we fit in, affordable, luxury organic baby clothes – which you can find at http://www.samababy.com
We literally did a drive by quick run in to show the line, feel the samples, give a catalogue and head out. Same with another cute boutique that really liked our Lucky Elephant Collection! (An ORGANIC Drive-By!)

Of course, met with our yummy Whole Foods at Ft. Collins who carries our line – it was great to meet our stores that carry us. I think meeting one on one is really what makes us stand out, and sets us apart. We are passionate, authentic, and excited – and they can really feel it – we work with them. And, of course pick up yummy Whole Foods sandwiches that lasted us four hours..

Then we headed back about 80 miles to Cherry Creek in Denver and stopped by a super cute boutique that had yoga classes. It was literally like Deja Vu for Shivani and I – we had been by there playing in the snow with one of our family friends years before!

And then another boutique that does all eco-products.. a mommy and daughter store!

The fun part of all this is that we took a catnap in our car. Yes, in our car, on the side of the street near Louisana St and Downing. Weird, but we were so tired from 200 miles of driving and no sleep.. so yes it was a catnap that lasted about an hour…

And then proceeded to head out to our Chicks Who Click event at B Side Lounge – which we were super excited about meeting some of the best people we have met – authentic, real, exciting, and passionate! Nothing is better than meeting people like Barbara Jones, Gwen Bell, George G Smith, Gwen’s Joel, GeekMommy, Jen, Wayne Sutton, Doyle Al Bee, Zenaweist and MANY others. I hope that we will all find a way to work together, because I am inspired by their wisdom, knowledge, and fervor.

And when you get a group of that much energy, we turn the party in to Chicks who Clink!

See you tomorrow gang – as we are FINALLY at the day of our Conference!

 

The Economy is Down and We are Road-Tripping January 2, 2009

Two, young, sister entrepreneurs are ready to hit the road to make sales really happen.

Starting January 8th, Neha Gupta and Shivani Gupta will be heading over to Colorado to attend a wonderful conference: Chicks Who Click – Chickswhoclick.com to gain some knowledge from some very intelligent and inspiring people!

We are very excited about being part of this, and are looking forward to spending time together closely.  I really think this will be a great experience.

With the way the economy is, people need to hear the story directly from the owners. They want to know you care, and that you are willing to work with them.  So rather than sitting behind our Macs, trying to get our name out there, we are just going to get up, get our hands in the dirt, and go for it!

We’ve already called a bunch of boutiques and Whole Foods in the area – and hope that we can stop by the best.  If you have any suggestions – please let us know! We would love to know where our product would fit best – and which boutiques are the best ones in the Colorado area!!

We are so excited about the conference and think we will learn so much on how to work your net-work!

We are hittin' the road!

We are hittin' the road!

 

 

 

Ta ta for now – and happy new year!
Neha and Shivani Gupta
