Small Concept has been busy since the holidays as we organize the warehouse, prepare for new arrivals, shop for the next season, and beef up the website. It’s been great reconnecting with old customers and meeting new ones!
As you know, we’ve had some new additions to the site, including maternity. Even better, the Lilac Maternity Fall Collection is now 20% off! Olian and Cotton Glam Maternity Spring Collections are also arriving, and some items are already available on the Small Concept site! It’s so great to find comfortable maternity clothes that you can continue to wear long after your baby arrives. You really must check out the great styles…the fabrics are so touchable!
We’re also adding a wonderful item: cloth diapers! Everyone wants to do their part to help the environment, and this is definitely a great way to do just that! Consider this: your baby will go through an astonishing 6,000 diaper changes from birth to potty-training. Disposable diapers and wipes add up to a whopping average of $2,500. However, by purchasing cloth diapers and wipes, your family can actually save up to $2000! Translating this savings into earnings, one can assume you will spend a total of 115 hours laundering your reusable diapers. In this scenario, you will actually earn in savings an hourly wage of $15 an hour in the time spent laundering your baby’s reusable diapers! Pretty amazing, right?
So, we have the mothers-to-be and babies covered, but there’s much more. We’ve received our first delivery from Tea Collection, and it’s flying off the shelves! The second spring delivery is on the way, Appaman’s spring order should start arriving after February 15th. The colors are so perfect for the spring. Hannah Banana, Little Mass and Biscotti deliveries have started arriving, featuring great dresses and swimwear for the girls. Wes and Willy swimwear for the boys are here as well- the designs are great along with the graphic tee-shirts.
Talk about color! Have you seen the bright colors from Wonderboy and Stun? When we opened the boxes, the clothing brightened the whole room! Love, love the colors. Also, Peaches N’ Cream is a new line to Small Concept (but a familiar line to many of us), and one of the oldest children’s clothing lines around. You’ll adore their classic collections with a twist. Several outfits are reversible, which gives you two outfits for the price of one!
Last but certainly not least, the gear and accessory section of the site is beginning to fill up with items from Oxo Tot, Itzy Ritzy, Ah Goo Baby and Baby K’Tan. Remember, Small Concept is linked to myregistry.com, offering you a way to create gift registries for baby showers, birthdays, and more. Be sure to take advantage!
I’m hoping that this blog post finds each of you happily preparing for your Valentine’s Day festivities. I can remember helping my children gather their favorite cards to give to their friends each year on that day. And how can we forget the wonderful chocolates and other candies given as gifts? This will be a memorable Valentine’s Day for me for sure. Small Concept wishes all of you the love you deserve from your favorite Valentine!
Remember- as always, we’d love to hear from you!

What a whirlwind tour! Our three days at the Atlanta Apparel Mart were a great success.
A special thank you to Kelley Utterback, who joined me there and shared her wisdom as we met with the merchandising reps. The designs were so inspiring! The excitement is building…new fall merchandise will be arriving soon. What’s missing from your children’s wardrobe? Anybody growing faster than expected? New babies on the way? Well, Small Concept will be ready to handle all of your needs in just a few short weeks. We chose some of the best pieces from designers like Appaman, Tea Collection, Wonderboy, Stun, Knuckleheads, Hula Mula, Wes and Willy, Tom and Drew, Deux par Deux, Peaches N Cream, and Magnificent Baby.
All will be delivering some great Spring and Summer designs after the first of the year. The greatest news? Some of the new designs will be available for the holiday season! As the orders arrive, you will be the first to know. Be sure to spread the word to your friends and family that Small Concept is the place to shop. As I have mentioned before, our goal is quality clothing, gear and accessories with exceptional customer care. These wonderful designers have us halfway to our goal already.
Now, stay tuned for the sales to begin!
I visit Small Concept to buy clothes for my 5-year-old and my 6-month-old. Whenever they're dressed in Small Concept I get so many compliments! It's also a great source for baby shower and birthday gifts.– Anne D., NY
