February 29th is a special date given that it only comes around once every four years and to celebrate it’s uniqueness All About the Boys have launched Independents Day as a shout out to all hard working unique independent businesses. As the owner of a small business I think this is a great initiative and couldn’t wait to join in. Littlesheep Learning was also lucky enough to be featured byKaren in their list of indpendent businesses today so this is a bit like a pass it on!
Littlesheep Learning‘s first website was launched in 2005 and we gained a lot of support from other WAHM businesses at that time. Sadly many of these small idependent businesses have since closed down for various reasons so I thought I would take the opportunity to celebrate some of the ones that are still around and who’s owners inspired me to take those first steps and to continue to be a mumpreneur.
Here are the first five that spring to mind:
- ICE Gems sell medical alert jewellery In Case of an Emergency (ICE) with a children’s range starting at just £15
- Play Merrily sell hundreds of different toys especially crafty and wooden ones – we shop there for Hama Beads which are great for fine motor development.
- Funky Dory Party Bags sell a whole range of party bags and fillers – including an ever increasing personalised party accessories.
- Knot Just Jigs who don’t just sell jigsaws but lots of other fantastic traditional toys and home accessories.
- Ihelm Enterprises who provide (amongst other things) website hosting and book keeping services which means that Littlesheep Learning can continue to run smoothly.
