Our First Online Sale!

There should have been a hidden camera in our office yesterday when we saw our website live for the first time. By our reactions, you'd never guess that we'd been looking at it 24/7 for weeks! We giggled and screamed like two middle school girls. It was finally live. It was like waiting on a baby to come. You plan, you dream, you worry, you pray, you laugh, you cry...and then you cycle through all those same emotions again and again. That's what we've been doing over our "baby". So we launched yesterday and within minutes we received notification of our first sale. Then the giggling and screaming started all over again; actually it'd never really stopped. Now this customer, our first online customer, was truly a big deal. This wonderful, generous man purchased one of our favorites, Rush Hour. (Go check it out. You'll love it!) He wins Mulberry's Customer of the Year Award. He will forever be a part of Mulberry history. We scrolled down the page to read the name of this historical shopper....and discovered it was none other husband! Now let me tell you something about his man to whom I've been married for 22 years. He takes his finances seriously. If he didn't believe in a product, if he didn't love it, he wouldn't buy it. So there you have it....Mulberry Toys Online Store has earned the seal of approval from the customer who means to the most to me. And hey, if it's good enough for him, then it's good enough for you. Trust me; you'll love it!!

Welcome to our blog!

Welcome to our blog. In this space, we hope to give you a peek into the exciting lives of two small town toy store owners who just happen to be moms, friends, and former teachers. We've had so much fun with this new adventure that we thought it might be fun to share our stories with you. Enjoy!

"The exciting lives of two small town toy store owners..." I'm still trying to figure out who those people are! I pinch myself everyday because I can't believe that I am living the dream. We're both so grateful that you are on this journey with us and as Michelle said, we want to share our stories with you. And how we southern ladies do love to tell a good story, slightly embellished at times, of course. We'll leave it up to you to sort the fact from the fiction!
