Next time you’re in the Lone Star State, be sure to swing by Dallas’ one-stop-shop for baby; Baby Bliss. Carrie and her expert staff will make you feel right at home!
Tea: How did you decide to take the leap and open your own store? How long has your store been in business?
Baby Bliss: My career started in retail as a buyer and later in wholesale. I just had the itch to do it myself! When my 30th came rolling around, I decided to make a change and boy am I glad that I did.
Tea: What is your favorite part of your day at the store?
BB: Well, I don’t spend a lot of time at the store these days because I have an amazing staff that allows me to do all the office work from home and spend more time with my kiddos after school.
Tea: We know how special and unique all of our stores are, what makes your store unique?
BB: My amazing staff! I swear people come in just to see them. They are fun, friendly, outgoing and that’s the vibe of the store. Everyone is welcome to come in, hang out, shop, and chat.
Tea: At Tea, we “Go There”, how do you share in that mission at your store and/or in your life?
BB: I love to go there! I love to travel. Before having kids, I was a worldly traveler. I was adventurous. Now that we have kids, we prefer to travel to beaches (I love the beach) where we can get lots of R&R.
Tea: What is the biggest trend you see right now in either shopping or kid’s fashion? What are people coming in for?
BB: My clients crave fashion for their kids that imitates theirs! I swear we hear all the time, “I wish that came in adult sizes!”
Tea: What do you do in your “spare” time?
BB: Family time is so important to us. I read something this summer and they titled it “the sweet spot”, post diapers and pre-teen, when your kids actually want to be with you, so we try to take full advantage of that, in between everything else! We are foodies, movie goers, art and festival lovers so we try to take advantage of all Dallas has to offer.
Tea: How do you balance it all? What tricks can you offer us?
BB: One day at a time! Then if my plate is just too full, I’ll ignore or delete things, like ‘OOPS’, I must have missed that.
