I recently had the pleasure of meeting Brandi Tysinger-Temple, the founder of Lolly Wolly Doodle, a kids’ clothing company that makes most of it’s sales, believe it or not, on Facebook. Every day her company posts pictures of new clothes they create at their headquarters in Lexington, North Carolina. Facebook fans (over half a million of them!) can view the clothes and send a message if there’s a look they’re interested in. Lolly Wolly Doodle sends an invoice, which you have a few days to pay, and then the clothes are shipped out. It’s a simple system, and now they are the largest “store” on all of Facebook!
That a mom of four created a business that went from her and a few friends to about 100 employees in a few short years is endlessly impressive to me! But then, the clothes are very cute and original. If you’ve got a little girl who loves ruffles, you’ve got to check them out! And know this: Brandi says that some styles sell out in just minutes. (Most disappear after about 72 hours. Talk about fast fashion!)
Lolly Wolly Doodle will give away six bodysuits, worth $17 each, to our American Baby fans. If you win, you can tell us whether you want the hot-pink girl style or the turquoise boy style, and in what size.
To be eligible, leave a comment below, up to one a day between now and the end of the day on Wednesday, April 3. We’ll randomly choose six winners after that. Read the official rules here. Goody luck!Add a Comment
