So its been a crazy few weeks as I finally moved into my own HipBaby studio!
As you may know I was renting a space every Friday in Athlone and this was a great way for me to see if there was interest in a sling shop in the Midlands, and there was! The space and location were both lovely but I had nowhere to store my sling stash and limited selection to offer customers so I started thinking about finding my own place. You know that saying everything happens for a reason, well I believe it. I had been to a treatment with the lovely Oonagh from Athlone Bio Energy and fell in love with her room, bang smack in the middle of town, bright and airy everything I wanted. Fast forward to New Years Eve and a text from Oonagh to say the room was available!! What a start to 2017!!!
The location is number 4 Garden Vale, Athlone. Just outside the Town Centre and a short walk from the Railway station, ample parking and a lovely space which is perfect for Babywearing Consultations!
Athlone is easy to get to from Roscommon, Tullamore, Mullingar and surrounding areas. Close to Galway and only an hour or so from Sligo, Mayo, Kildare and Dublin!
My plan is to work around school hours, by appointment only for consultations and for people wanting to see other HipBaby products including Frugi up close and personal! I will have open days fairly regularly whereby you can just pop in and have a chat and a browse. There will be no consultations on open days, general advice will be given. For details on when these will be follow my Facebook page here.
To celebrate the opening I am going to have an Open day on Friday the 3rd of March from 10.30 to 1pm and Saturday the 4th of March from 11am to 2pm! There will be lots of special offers and giveaways so do drop in!!!
