Full Name: Diane Stewart
Company/Business: My Vintage Baby Direct
Year Founded: 2003
Tell us about your business: My Vintage Baby is a 6 year old children’s clothing and accessory company based out of McKinney Texas. We’ve been featured in over 800 specialty boutiques and dept. stores like Neimans, Nordstroms and Bloomingdales. This past Fall we tested a new business model taking our line directly to the consumer thru 17 Founding Direct Sales Reps, online and personal trunk shows. The response was HUGE. We are now launching Spring 2010 with over 100 reps in 25 states.
What inspired you to start your business: As a former boutique owner, I carried the My Vintage Baby line. It was always a customer favorite. When the opportunity came up to be Founding Representative for this mom founded/operated company, I couldn’t say no.
Share one business goal: To share the experience of owning your own business. So many women can have this opportunity to be their own boss, set their own hours AND have time for family. Seeing other women succeed is a blessing.
What would you say contributes to your success: My drive, experience and ability to balance family with work.
Please share any additional information about business: My Vintage Baby hosts trunk shows in your home or venue of your choice. We come to you! Casual and laid back is our style, we conduct the trunk show and kids are always welcome. You look at the line at your leisure, and we can put together a fashion show with the kids. Direct prices are 25-35% less than our retail prices. You get personalized shopping in the comfort of your home with your guests. Hostesses will earn My Vintage Baby Rewards towards FREE clothing! FREE shipping on the hostess order. A $50 My Vintage Baby reward is given for recommending a new successful hostess.
