We have a winner!

Congratulations to Kayla Fiorilli!

Kayla won the draw for a $20 store credit after filling out our product survey this month.  Thank you to everyone who filled out the survey and entered the contest.  Your input is greatly appreciated and has been a big help in my decision making process for what new products to bring in over the coming months.

Survey Results

Elite Colours Top 5:

  • Watermelon/Spearmint
  • Tootie Frootie/Apple Green/Light it up Blue
  • Grape
  • Choco Truffle/Kumquat
  • Crushed Berries

Diaper talk: 58.3% NO 41.7% YES – I have contacted anyone who said yes for special ordering

Bummis Products Top 5:

  • Wet bags
  • Swimmi
  • Bio-liners
  • Training pants/fleece liners/prefolds (we have lots of pre-folds in stock right now!)
  • Bamboozle

Other brands:

  • AMP
  • Charlie Banana/Bum Genius & Flips
  • Monkey Doodlez
  • Go Green Diapers

Because the lovely Andrea has lots of AMP at Enchanted Forest, I will be bringing in Charlie Banana in a few months.  I have also been on the waiting list for Bum Genius/Flips for some time.  Monkey Doodlez are easy to get, but they are a sized option, so rather than guessing what sizes/colours everyone would like, I am going to keep these as a special order option for the time being.  I recently got a Monkey Doodlez Micro Doodlez AIO to try on D and also a Go Green Diapers Champ diaper to test out.  I will be posting more info on these later.

Rockin’ Green Scents:

Scavenger Hunt: #11 Head over to the website and find the information for defective products.  Who is typically responsible for defective merchandise?

  • Smashing Watermelons
  • BareNaked Babies
  • Rage Against the Raspberries
  • Motley Clean
  • Lavendar Mint Revival
  • Earth Wind & Orchids

We always keep the top 3 in stock, I will be adding Motley Clean to the mix in my next order.

Shake it up: 58.3% YES 41.7% NO – Planning to bring in a few of these next order.

aden+anais:

  • Wash cloths & hooded towels/Bamboo swaddles
  • Dream Blanket
  • wash cloths

These are on the way!

Some other requests were:

  • Wool covers
  • Natural teethers/toys, etc
  • Feeding accessories

I will be keeping those ideas for the future for sure.

Thank you all again for taking the time to fill out the survey.  As always, feel free to contact me with any product requests.  Being a small home-based business, it is difficult to decide what to bring in to keep on hand.  Special orders and requests are more than welcome!

Hello world!

Welcome to The Fluff & Stuff Blog!

I hope to use this blog to expand on the information posted on our Facebook Page, in our Monthly Newsletter, and on our Website.

I know it is easy to become overwhelmed by the information available about cloth diapering and parenting in general.  I hope you will find this to be a great resource, stress reliever, and maybe have a few laughs.

 

My name is Melanie, and I am the owner/operator of The Fluff & Stuff Shop.  I am currently running the shop out of my home in Enfield, Nova Scotia, with plans of moving to the Truro area later this year.  The shop has a web store, so you can browse our catalogue and shop from home.  Local pickup is available in Enfield, Truro, or New Glasgow (where my parents live).  I can also ship your order to you via Canada Post at their current rates.

I decided to start the shop in June 2011, when my son was 3 months old.  I had a rough time finding preemie size cloth diapers locally (we were preparing for a preemie and babies run small in my family), and although the city seems close, once I was very pregnant (and once D had arrived), I realized just how far we were from the cloth diaper shops.  I also started thinking about the fact that we were planning on moving to Truro, and would be even further away!  During our many nursing sessions and sleepless nights, the wheels kept turning.  I couldn’t get the idea of opening my own shop out of my head.  I launched the website officially in September 2011.

I have found the community of cloth diapering absolutely amazing!  Since start-up, I have been privileged to do cloth diaper workshops with Andrea of Enchanted Forest, who incidentally was spinning the same ideas I was, at the same time.  Though we do have some product cross-over (Bummis, because they are so awesome!), we carry a wide range of different items.  Between us, we will surely have all the babies in Colchester/East Hants sporting adorable fluff.
