Marli and Mo Online Marketplace



GUEST POST: Natrice Grosvenor Co-Founder of Marli and Mo Online Marketplace shares how it all started ....



It all started with a cracking idea, (over a coffee and cake of course…) with a lifelong friend of mine Debbie Stahmer. We were both discussing options of work around our babies. Of course both wanting to achieve a happy balance between work and life and be there for our families. We both share a love of all things handmade and visit our local markets often. Although both agreed it was getting harder to visit these with screaming kids in tow. We were both very familiar with online shopping and the benefits it brings, especially as busy mums with small children.
