It’s no secret that Baby Swap or Shop is something that I wish I’d thought of myself. It’s a cost effective way of parents to find things they really need at a fraction of the price or for free. Users can also advertise items their own children haven’t used or have grown out of. So I think it’s only right that I shamelessly promote Carrie Webster, who started Baby Swap or Shop whilst on maternity leave and has juggled, managed and been a vision of efficiency for the last 12 months whilst Baby Swap or Shop has been growing at a rate of knots around her!
Carrie commented on the success for us: ‘I am very passionate about this project and get great satisfaction that we have brought parents together to recycle, reduce waste and have created a source of extra income. I think it has also provided stay at home mums with a hobby (it can get quite addictive!) giving them more of an input in to the family resources and allowing them to justify that extra coffee and cake or glossy mag!’
The whole Weston Communications team loves working with Baby Swap or Shop and look forward to more great coverage going forwards :). And her be an inspiration to other mums in business; if you have an idea don’t be afraid to go for it!
