New Member Yvonne Gerhards – My Cherished Kids Clothes

Featured

Yvonne is the owner of the online store for high quality preloved children’s clothes. You can find high quality brands like Jacadi, Gant, Ralph Lauren and many more.

Having lived in Germany, Spain, France and Switzerland before moving to Ireland Yvonne Isabel has a multilingual background. Staying in Switzerland she came across several boutiques selling high quality second hand designer kids clothes. She liked this approach and the excitement when finding a pretty dress at a bargain price. And raising three children herself keeping expenses within reason is an important factor.

Why not introducing this concept as an online experience to Ireland? This is the idea behind MyCherishedKidsClothes which is based in Clonskeagh, Dublin 14, Ireland.

Recently I am started to represent the company Yuunic from Germany who are known for beautiful wooden highchairs.

I set up my online store for 2 simple reasons, the first to be able to work flexible hours allowing me to be close by to my little toddler Emily and the second because I felt Ireland needs a baby and toddler online clothing store offering variety, quality and affordability through a friendly easy to use set up.

I have always been a keen online shopper, I love nothing more than the postman/courier arriving at my front door with something new that I have recently ordered, that was until I had my first baby! As a first time mum all I wanted to buy was beautiful things for my beautiful baby but I found the options for online shopping for baby clothes limited and in most cases very expensive. So the idea for Buttons & Bows Boutique slowly started from there.

Now that my baby has turned into my toddler I found the same issue buying toddler clothing online so Buttons & Bows Boutique is offering a range from New Born to School Starting ages.

Based in the Sunny South East, we are 100% Irish owned and Independent. We are brand new and offering a range of items that bit different. We want to give customers that same love of their parcel arriving at their front door.

New Member Sheila Carrasco founder of Taweret Mum and Baby Shop

Featured

My name is Sheila Carrasco, I was born in Reus (Spain).I am happily married and recently became mother of my sweet baby girl, Emma.

 Being a mother is learning about strengths you didn’t know you had, and dealing with fears you didn’t know existed. And that’s the reason why I got the courage to quit my job and decide to spend most of my time with my baby, while trying to help mums to breastfeed comfortably everywhere they go (in & out),feeling pretty, happy and loved.

Here I am introducing you to an original and funky selection of nursing (and maternity) wear which I hope you like and find useful, as much as I do! and my business name is Taweret.

I am also bringing beautifully handcrafted light ring slings, together with the coolest footmuffs, covers and canopies you may had ever seen.

Most of the products offered are designed and manufactured in Barcelona, vibrant city synonym of innovation and designtogether with tradition and quality – values that I would like to represent in everything we do.

 Our brand name refers to the ancient Egyptian goddess of maternity and childbirth, protector of women and children, who used to be represented by a female hippo (like our logo one)

New Member Virtue Naa Ayeley Shine – founder of Emerald and Wax

My name is Virtue Naa Ayeley Shine, I live Galway.


I am originally from Ghana in West Africa. I was born in the capital Accra and lived there until my early teens at which time I moved to New York with my mother and brother.
About 3 years ago I moved to Galway with my husband and what was then, my small(er) family. We now have four boys.

I am a self-taught ‘crafter’ and designer and a fierce fashionista. It all started when I took up knitting, a very hip New York pastime and perfect for those long subway commutes. I then decided I’d like to move on to sewing. I bought my very first sewing machine in a little craft store in Brooklyn called Daisy’s without having any real knowledge of what sewing entailed. All I had was the drive to learn and a love for the craft.

My influences are wide ranging and start with visiting the fabric stalls in Ma kola market in Accra when I was a very young girl. I am particularly influenced by African fabrics, the stories that the many hundreds of different prints tell, the positive influence it has on women in particular and the many different styles of attire that these fabrics embrace. For example, wrap skirts, which have a simplicity that almost requires no effort on the part of the wearer because the fabrics themselves combine beautiful and vibrant colours and designs that lend a simple elegance. I also take some fashion inspiration from New York in terms of a sense that ‘anything is possible’ and the notion of mixing things up while maintaining a high sense of style.

Indeed style is very important to me and ultimately I want to apply a high degree of craftsmanship to produce very stylish wares and accessories. My ideas are many and are constantly in flux which makes my work that bit more interesting for me and hopefully this is also something that comes through in what I make.

I produce a range of crafts all of my own designs and including skirts, bags, clutches, and cushion covers.

In the last year or so I have put a lot of time in to learning my craft and fine tuning my ideas.
Then last May I started Emerald and Wax, in my kitchen taking over our dinning table and then later as my online store. Emerald and Wax is in its infancy and I’m learning all about what it means to have an online ‘presence’. It has given me a great opportunity to showcase my wares and helped to get in touch both with many other ‘crafters’ and also people who love handmade crafts.

Toys and Games

My name is Suzie Evans and I opened this online toy shop in 2014. I have two little girls who love toys and I had been a stay at home mum to them for five years. Then, my children started school and I wanted to stretch my brain, get paid and stay busy, but I didn’t want to be tied into a job that meant I ‘d miss collecting my children from school or doing fun things with them in the afternoons. So, with advice from several very encouraging friends and a very supportive husband, I decided to open my own online toy shop.

I wanted to stock quality toys for reasonable prices. Wooden toys that will last past one child (and maybe even into next generations); educational toys and kits that will make learning fun; and creative kits that will bring out natural talents in children and which they can show off the end product to their friends and family.

I have chosen toys and games which I feel my girls and their friends would really love. I really hope you find that your children love them too! I believe that the toys stocked in my shop make a refreshing alternative to the heavily branded and advertised plastic-ware that many toy shops stock. I really believe in the toys I stock and know that they will pretty much sell themselves. Their quality and development, educational and play value make them super gifts.

Enjoy browsing and feel free to contact me with suggestions of toys which you think I should stock as I’m always on the lookout for lovely toys and games.

New Member Aine Breen founder of Liwu Jewellery

Featured

My name is Aine Breen and I created Liwu Jewellery while struggling to find my way in a new world that I had been thrown into. I am Irish and moved to China with my husband in 2011. I gave up my much-loved job and life in Dublin to support his career in Beijing.

My designs are the product of finding meaning in this new world. At first, the way people acted and their manner puzzled me and sometimes offended me. I was in a way suffering from culture shock – the vast numbers of people, traffic, and difficulty in communicating even when the person spoke perfect English. However, once I started examining the ancient characters (and even the simplified version used in every day life), I realised the richness of the Chinese language. In many ways, the Chinese save face and cannot express to each other their emotions in spoken word. In contrast the written word i.e. the characters used in Chinese language are so rich and full of meaning. Chinese people, for example, do not say ‘I love you’ to a lover. This is because of a need to ‘save face’ and because ‘love’ is regarded as such a highly emotional state.

I always appreciated delicate fine jewellery and my favourite piece was a simple necklace that just said ‘love’. I like to make a subtle statement with my jewellery. For many people, jewellery is a form of expression. Jewellery allows expressions through words and symbolism and for individuals to make a statement. Liwu jewellery incorporates Chinese calligraphy and allows individuals to make a statement and express themselves in a very subtle manner. Many pieces incorporate Chinese wishes, beliefs and also just simple words from their language. It is a collection of my favourites which I picked up from individuals I met, Chinese culture books I read, Chinese language classes and of course, my calligraphy teacher, Paul Wang.

‘Liwu’ means gift in Chinese. All pieces come with a beautiful box and a ‘meaning card’ containing an explanation of what the characters mean.
