Copper Pearl

copperpearl team

Copper Pearl is an online newborn clothing and accessory store that was started in 2015 by two best friends, Stephanie and Kristin. Both moms always wanted to start their own business, and when they found the lack of fashionable and modern baby bibs on the market, they grabbed the opportunity to create Copper Pearl.

“At Copper Pearl, our mission is to exceed customer expectations by offering exceptional products at a great value. Each product sold goes through a rigorous review process to ensure that the designs and materials chosen are both highly functional and fashionable. We’re always striving to improve our products and create unique designs you’ll only find at Copper Pearl with the quality you’ve come to love. We appreciate you being here with us!! Happy shopping”! Kristin and Stephanie.

Camera Ready

Makeup Artist Mary Erickson,

At Camera Ready Cosmetics, beauty experts are dedicated to create an appealing beauty shopping experience and stimulate fearlessness in society. Through their continued expertise and innovation, Camerareadycosmetics encourages customers to explore the cosmos of beauty and wellness with ease.

“It’s been my dream to have a pro makeup showroom, a place for artists to play with professional products without the typical makeup store attitude. I can’t stand going into a store where the owners and employees think they’re doing the customer a favor by being there.”

“We’ve narrowed our products down to the best of the best. We have chosen the brands that respect and formulate their products for artists. You won’t find us in high end malls and we don’t wear matching brush belts. However, we treat our customers with respect. If you want to play with products for a few hours and buy nothing, that’s O.K… come in and play! Our store is your playground.” Mary Erickson

Soon after, she set up shop in her parent’s garage… and Mariposa was born!”

Kangacare

kangacare founder

Julie and her husband Chad launched Rumparooz in 2006, shortly after the birth of Autumn, their second daughter. They soon discovered that their daughter was highly sensitive to disposable diapers and could not wear them even for an hour. They research and tried many different brands of cloth diapers, but ended up with dissatisfaction. Julie and Chad could not find a cloth diaper that had both the fit and quality that they looking for. While struggling with the baby care, Julie started brainstorming and inventing leak blocking technology in her own designs for diaper patterns.

“Julie has made a revolutionary impact on the market of cloth diapers for the baby industry. While filling a personal need to find a better diapering solution for her own family, Julie created, developed, and now produces diapering solutions with patented leak protection”.

“In 2012, Julie was nominated for and won the Gold Stevie Award for Entrepreneur of the Year and also the Silver Stevie Award for Lifetime Achievement Award. On April 23, 2013, Julie was granted US Patent 8,425,483 for the Double gusset cloth diaper along with a method for making the same”.

La Romi

Laromi founder

La Romi is a one-stop destination for all kid’s clothing and accessories. Romi started this business while she was pregnant. Her husband and she want to spend more time together. Romi always wanted to start her own business and launching LaRomi is like dream come true for her.

While Romi was pregnant, her husband and she shipped orders with handwriting notes to make their customer feel valuable. At La Romi, you can find all the lovely things for your little one. There all collections are specially curated for crowing kids. Buy feeding bottles, pacifiers & teethers, bottles, bottle caps and collars, sippy cups, plastic dishware and utensils, teething rings, and plastic bibs.

“La Romi started out as just Romi and Matt wanting to find a way to spend more time together as we looked to start a family. Matt working in film and TV, Romi working as a surgical nurse meant time apart was often and with minimum 12-hour shifts for both.

Now getting into business is definitely not for those wanting more free time and so even while Romi was pregnant we were shipping orders and handwriting notes to every order (like we still do today) we worked right up till Emma was born. Starting as parents we got the first-hand experience of the sudden drop of communication and leadership new parents look for. Of course, everyone’s journey is different but it helps to have some reference of where you might be heading.

So starting with what we knew we were able to react very quickly as we realized what we needed for Emma and look to reflect that in our offering to you.”

Clocky – Alarm On Wheels!

Gauri nanda

Clocky is the only alarm clock that runs away beeping to get you out of bed on time. Nearly 50% of people “abuse the snooze.” Clocky will let you snooze once but then he will jump off of your nightstand and run away beeping, determined to get you out of bed. Never Oversleep Again!

“Clocky was created by Gauri Nanda in 2005, while she was a student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. For Nanda, an over-sleeper who was routinely late for morning classes, waking up would take some ingenuity. Laying in bed one morning, Nanda realized that the alarm clock was long overdue for a makeover. It didn’t have to be a black box that stares at you blankly, often failing at the one job it purports to do. Fusing her love for aesthetics and her passion for fixing things, Clocky was born”.
