A directory of lovely things


As soon as you find out you're pregnant the shopping frenzy begins...

It's becoming more and more common to do lots of our shopping online.   Although there are plenty of huge online shops, that we've all heard about, there are hundreds of people setting up their own businesses making bespoke clothes, baby goods, breastfeeding-friendly dresses, and much much more.   I'm hoping to build up a fab directory of very small bespoke businesses that you might never otherwise hear about.

Sling School
Based in Lancaster, Sling School is passionate about carrying babies and doing so with a stretchy wrap that is both affordable and easy to use due to the 2 way stretch.  The stretchy wraps are available to buy through our online shop now, and you can either pay for postage, or local pickup is an option too.  Coming in 2018, we will also be running antenatal courses where you can meet other parents-to-be and spend a morning together learning to use and becoming really confident with your stretchy wrap before baby arrives.

This Sling School ‘Sweet Shop’ wrap is an ideal carrier to take you from newborn to around 12 months, and is a perfect choice for both new and experienced wrappers.  The stretchy fabric we use is thin yet supportive, its cotton softness perfect for wearing against even the most sensitive skin. The 2 way stretch making it easy to get a great fit for you and baby every time.

Sling School ‘Sweet Shop’ wraps come in two lengths, (4m and 5m) and a variety of delicious colours, all named after classic sweet shop treats! They have a vinyl middle marker in a contrasting colour, identifiable by both touch and sight. We have worked hard to make these an affordable option for new parents, and the shorter length is great for people who feel overwhelmed by the length of a standard stretchy wrap.

Manalz Slime
Are your kids fascinated by the properties of slime.  Manal Faisal is an 11 year old schoolgirl who absolutely loves slime and making slime.  She's been through the whole experimentation stage with her ingredients and has come up with a handmade product with absolutely fantastic stretchy qualities and beautiful scents.  Tubs of slime can be made to your requirements, with a range of colours and scents to choose from.  All tubs come complete with activator, information about how to keep your slime in good condition, and health and safety instructions.  Perfect for pocket money spends, gifts, or to use in or instead of party bags, Manal has also developed a range of gift packages and the catalogue will be available to view here very soon.  If you'd like to make slime rather than buy it, then you can also book Manal to come and run a slime workshop with you, ensuring your end product is of a high standard, or even book her for parties which can include slime making and lots of slime-based tutorials/games.  (parties and workshops only for children aged 4+)
Please check out the Manalz slime facebook page or follow us on instagram to see lots of videos of the product in action.
