Wholesale baby accessories add that extra touch that ties everything together in your baby boutique. Stocking complementing products increases your opportunity for up selling, particularly when customers purchase clothing with coordinating colors and prints they can layer as a set. Building a complete gift thoroughly adds a personal flair that is unmatched. For your best chance at business success, consider some of these irresistibly charming items.
Creating an Ensemble
Rarely do you see an outfit on display with a sign next to it that reads, “Well that’s all, folks!” Wholesale companies are always eager to provide delightful baby accessories, using similar prints or hues. A fashion-forward baby dressed in a full ensemble is absolutely endearing. Matching bibs with clever sayings or appealing designs are for the practical mom in favor of expression. Hats are incredibly popular in numerous styles, from standard baseball caps, to knit beanies and floppy boat hats.
Whether it is plain or sporting huge pompom balls that tie under an infant’s chin, it is by far the most delightful way to protect a little one’s head from the sun. Little girls’ headbands and hairpieces are a common boutique favorite (even if they do not have a full-head of hair yet!). Other additions for girls’ dresses are colorful or lace accented tights and socks with timeless Mary Jane’s.
Welcome to the World
New parents celebrate bringing their newborn home to a fully decorated and themed nursery. From the paint color on the walls to the stuffed elephant positioned in the corner of the crib, on top of the blanket Grandma knitted for the new arrival portable baby bed. This day is starting a new chapter for everyone involved, and it should be obvious to all why the full picture needs to be just right. Parents strive to create a soothing and visually appealing nursery for their children. From the bedding and pillows with corresponding mobile hanging above it, to the dolls, rattles, and plush toys – all have a “home” inside your infant’s room.
As the child graduates from crib to bed, parents welcome the toddler years as they hunt for all new décor, such as growth charts to hang on the wall, personalized with the child’s name. Diaper changing tables make way for new piggy banks and tooth (fairy) holders.
Preparing to Add New Inventory
Your wholesale baby accessories should come from a manufacturer that knows how to merchandise them properly. This means brilliantly planned and executed packaging, labels, and POP (Point of Purchase) displays to showcase items in ways to which customers will respond as they browse your store. Racks and other assorted shaped containers or baskets are recommended for displaying more petite items that do not transfer well on a shelf or hanging on a rack. Search for companies with unique and innovative products designed in collections. Promote layered gift giving to optimize your inventory selection and volume of sales.
