We were lucky enough to be featured in Home Muse magazine as one of Australia’s best kids and baby stores! See what they had to say about Pip and Lenny.
Mother of two boys and a new baby girl, Justine is an almost married (thanks Covid) Registered Midwife who has a passion for creativity and design and loves a challenge.
Mother of four (although remains overly clucky), Registered Midwife, queen of flat lays - Bec is married to her high school sweetheart and is dog obsessed.
Pip and Lenny opened online. One small rack of handmade clothing located in the spare room made up our collection. On the night we went live we happy danced as the orders came through!
Our first birthday saw us reach 8,000 followers. We held a Giveaway with some of our favourite small businesses to celebrate.
Pip and Lenny The Label Launches
After months of hard work and ups and downs, we were finally able to release our very own label.
After well and truly growing out the spare room it was time to find a new space. Pip and Lenny picked up and moved to a big, shiny warehouse! Although this added to the chaos of working around children (literally), it was a move that needed to happen.
Better Together Event
Pip and Lenny hosted their very first event to celebrate the enormity of motherhood and to raise funds for The Village Co. Tickets sold out a week prior to the event!
Better Together - a Pip and Lenny Event
Motherhood deserves a celebration! We hosted a special event to acknowledge the enormity of motherhood and the significance of a strong support network. Proceeds from the night were donated to The Village Co - A South Australian not for profit organisation that empowers families through kindness, generosity and support.►
