We thought it might be fun to meet some of our lovely retailers. Today we were chatting with Julia whose store Chocolate Freckles can be found in Essenden, Victoria. Julia's store has only been operating for less than two years but already she has gained herself a fabulous reputation in the industry. Her store looks deliciously sweet!!
Last month Julia was featured on www.babyology.com.au and she has been nominated for the 2011 AusMumpreneur awards. Here she answers some of our questions.

It has been the year of the fairytale wedding. Dresses have been classic and beautiful. Brides have been stunning. We love weddings!!
Our range of dolls have been compared to little flowergirls. They make the perfect gift for christenings or for a little (hopefully well behaved!) flowergirl.
Beautiful rosy cheeks, happy smiles, satin shoes, soft pink details and all the pretty details that make a dress perfect. These dolls are timeless and will be a cherished part of a little girls childhood.
