Who Are Roses and the Stars?
After becoming an auntie for the first time as a 10-year-old girl, founder Rosie Jones has had 20 years of shopping for the perfect baby gift. Now after becoming an aunt to 11 nephews and nieces (and still counting!), as well as working for some of the world's top childrenswear stores, Rosie decided to set up Roses and the Stars, an online store selling gorgeous gifts for babies and their wonderful mums, a long-held dream and ambition.
Inspired by her own childhood in the English countryside, Rosie sources products which are reminiscent of the simpler childhood of times gone by, whether that be sourcing handmade teddy bears from the last remaining manufacturer in the UK, or creating clothing collections of classic designs, made of Liberty Print heritage fabrics.
Most importantly our products are sourced from sustainable sources and are produced by fair trade factories, cottage industry artisans or are made using items otherwise headed for the dump. At Roses and the Stars, we believe that the most important gift you can give a child is a future filled with hope where our responsibility to the Earth and it's people are taken seriously and are protected.
The 'doors' to our online store opened in September 2016 and now we are looking to build upon our initial success by popping up at as many events, markets and fairs as possible, so we can meet our customers and introduce them to the beautiful brands and services we provide through the website.
How Can You Help Us?
Firstly and most importantly we encourage you to share our story in any way you can, whether that be through social media or through chatting about our shop with others at the school gates.
