Wheel in the window

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016

I was in my local town of Harrogate to do some shopping recently, and as usual my first stops were in some local Independent shops. We are lucky in Harrogate, in that we do still have a few non-chain retailers, although they are getting harder to find! A whole row of really lovely ‘indies’ closed down recently when a Jamie Oliver ‘Italian’ and a Nandos took over half a block in the centre of town.

One rather wonderful independent retailer we do still have, though, is Magpie on Beulah Street in the centre of town. Regular readers of this blog (Hi, Mum!) will recall that Magpie Greetings were my very very first stockist of Baby Feed Wheels, and have been re-ordering these ‘new baby’ cards (and now our Get Well Soon cards, too) for the last 10-odd years!

You can imagine my delight, then, to see that Magpie have put a pink Baby Feed Wheel in their window display! I still get excited when I see Chiggs Wheels actually for sale in real live shops, so I was skipping down Beulah Street to be part of a window display! Thank you Magpie!

Harrogate’s Little Star

Friday, April 17th, 2015

Last week I delivered a re-order of Baby Feed Wheels to one of our local stockists, Little Star Co, a beautiful baby shop on Westmoreland Street here in Harrogate.

If you’re in this area of North Yorkshire and looking for travel systems, accessories, clothing, gifts or feeding essentials I can thoroughly recommend a visit!

The shop is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am til 5pm, and by appointment on Sundays and Mondays. A member of the team is available to  fully demonstrate and explain the features of the prams on offer, and the aim of Little Star Co is to create a relaxing shopping experience, which I’m sure new parents-to-be will appreciate!

Little Star Co is also an award winner as Anna, the owner, picked up the gong for ‘Best New Retailer’ at the esteemed Nursery Industry Awards in October 2014. We are very lucky to have such a lovely, Independent shop in our town!

Winter Wonderland

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

We’ve woken to a winter wonderland here at Chiggs HQ. This is the view from my work station this morning- and the snow is still falling in Harrogate!

I must say, it’s times like this I’m very glad Chiggs is a home based business, and I don’t have a commute to tackle! This morning I’ve been keeping up to date with social media (no, not just faffing around on Facebook- this is serious stuff 🙂 ). If you would like to keep in touch with all things Chiggs, our Facebook page is Chiggs Wheels and I am on Twitter @ChiggsHQ

This afternoon I’ll be (hopefully!) walking into Harrogate to deliver Baby Feed Wheels to a lovely card and gift shop, Magpie Greetings on Beulah Street in the centre of town, who have been selling Chiggs Wheels since we first started- they were our very first stockist way back in January 2006!
