Q&A with a Tiny Tush Retailer RG Natural Babies
See an exclusive coupon code below!
1. What is the name of your store and how long have you been in business?
RG Natural Babies – started online in April 2008 and our B&M at 430 Main St, Racine, WI opened in May 2010
2. How did you choose the name of your store and, if applicable, your B&M location?
There were several names I put on a list. When I checked for websites/domains, I found a lot of them were already being used. I got opinions on the remainder and we went with RG Natural Babies. We wanted it to have Natural in it and put that the focus was on Babies. We though of doing RG Natural Diapers, but I knew eventually I would have a lot more than diaper products, so we kept “Babies.” The RG stands for “Rachel Grace” my first (and currently only) daughter. It was very important to include her because we wouldn’t have the store without her!
As far as the location of our store, that was a long process. It took a lot of prayer and discernment to know exactly where God wanted us. We felt led to go to the downtown area of Racine, but knew there were a lot of risks with it. We looked at pretty much every building that was available for rent or purchase starting in June 2009 and our search ended in Feb 2010 when we knew we had to make a choice and the building I really wanted was no longer available to us (that is a long story in itself in which the building is owned by Kimberly Clark and they decided they would not rent to us because they saw us as competition). And I am grateful to where we are at. It’s a beautiful space that has allowed us room to grow and though it’s more than we felt comfortable renting-wise, we know it’s where God wanted us to be and he will continue to make things work out in his plan!
3. Why did you decide to carry Tiny Tush products?
My friend Kristin, owner of My Baby Pumpkin, actually introduced me to the Tiny Tush diapers. I had never heard of them and she told me about them and how they were located in Wisconsin! She had me sold at that! I love that we can support another local Wisconsin business and they because one of my favorite diapers! I’ve really enjoyed working with Charlene and local customers love that they are locally made!
4. If you were a Tiny Tush Elite 1.1 diaper, what color would you be and why?‘
Ocean, because I just love that color so much!
5. When you were little, what did you dream about being?
When I was a little girl, I dreamed about being so many things. A dancer, an actress, a singer, a teacher… to name a few. I always wanted to be a mom and am now blessed with 2 children that I get to dance with, sing to, and teach Never in my faintest memories did I ever dream about owning my own business, yet here I am!
6. If you could only say 2 things to you children, one sweet and one wisdom, what would they be?
Wow, this is a deep question.
To Rachel Grace: “God has created you to be such a beautiful girl with strength in leadership. Remember that your beauty on the inside is what matters most. Put others first and you will be blessed. I will always be proud of you.”
To Noah: “God has created you with such great gifting in music and discernment. I pray you will use both to his glory. I am proud of you, son.”
So that may have been a bit more than one summed up – it’s hard to express everything. I always want my kids, no matter what, to know that I am proud of them. It is important to me that they never question that or the love I have for them
