Reflections On Our First Year

16 Jun

Birthday BlogHow time flies when you’re having fun!  Can you believe Dessie turned one today?  What started out as only a dream has now become our reality.  I still remember the car ride talking about how I would love to start a resale website for nice children’s clothing.  I love boutique clothing for my own daughter, but I am not a fan of the hefty price tag that comes along with it.  After a lot of time, energy, and long nights researching, Dessie became an actual company.

So it happened. . .one year ago today we hit the “live” button and waited anxiously for that first sale.  And, I will never forget our first sale. . .a Matilda Jane dress.  It took 3 people to box it, make sure the ribbon was just right, add the personalized note, and finally get it shipped off.   We were so nervous and wanted everything to be perfect.

Now, we ship clothing all over the US and it is always such a pleasant surprise to see all of the great kids’ clothing our customers sell us. . .from California to New York.  Our thanks go out to everyone for making our dream a reality.

Happy Birthday Dessie!
