New baby shop at Stonham Barns, Suffolk

New baby shop at Stonham barns Suffolk

We are delighted to announce that we have opened a baby shop at Stonham Barns in Suffolk under the Mamiina brand. Whilst only a small shop, it has been a big move for us in terms of business growth/direction. We are very excited to see how things progress, build the business, and meet many of our customers in person rather than online.

Why Stonham Barns?

Last year (2022) we decided to mix it up a bit and attended various shows and shopping fairs throughout the year. These events varied from small events dedicated to shopping, to larger events such as the Suffolk Show and East of England Game Fair. Our final show of the year was at the Stonham Barns Christmas Fair which was perhaps one of our most successful of the year. It was here that the opportunity for a small retail shop was raised. Given the proximity to our home, it felt like the right choice.

We had mixed success in terms of sales at the different events. One thing that stood out was the overall positive feedback on our products, with our range of teething necklaces and dummy clips proving to be our most popular sellers. With high streets steadily declining over the years there is a noticeable shortage of independent retailers. This is certainly the case for baby products. Stonham Barns is a small but unique shopping village with a small selection of shops offering everything from art and crafts, to antiques and children’s clothes. In addition there are a few specialist shops including GG Trading Cards, The Little Dance Barn, and The Dogs Business, specialising in raw food for dogs. With everything taken into consideration we felt Stonham Barns would be an ideal location for our first physical baby shop in Suffolk.

We’ve increased our range of baby products

With more space to play with, we are excited to offer a larger range of products than before. In fact we have more than doubled the amount of baby products we sell to include some gorgeous baby toys and accessories from the likes of Janod and Bambino. We have also increased our existing range of Kaloo Dolls and Aubrey & Co teething accessories and dummy clips.

Baby products at our baby shop at Stonham Barns in Suffolk.

Our Suffolk baby shop has only been open for 6 weeks but in that time we have had better than expected sales and feedback from our new customers, with some repeat customers already as well as several customer referrals. We are using this time to carefully note what products our customer like so we can improve on our existing ranges as well as adding new ones. Our only limitation at the present time is space, but nonetheless, we already have our eye on several product ranges that will be added in the coming weeks.

What’s next for Mamiina?

Our ethos has remained the same as we have grown, that is providing great quality teething toys and accessories aimed at ages 0-3 years from our baby shop at Stonham Barns, Suffolk, but we want to go further than this. In the coming months we will be exploring the possibility of holding a range of free events and workshops aimed at parents and babies. The aim of this will be in educating young mums (and dads) in certain aspects of child care, including weaning, baby first-aid, and general parental support.

Please be sure to sign up to our newsletter at the bottom of the page to be the first to hear about one of our events.
