Lesley Reid - Lesley is a laid back environmental engineer with funky style. Blending her green thumb with her organizational skills and number crunching she is continuously looking for new ways to "green" our boutique. Through her caring nature Lesley will provide expecting moms with a peaceful, enjoyable shopping experience.
Ashley Russell - Ashley's love of adventure, outgoing personality and creative flair are complemented by a helpful, positive and caring attitude. She is excited to put her small business, environmental marketing and public education experience to use in providing her valued customers with exceptional products and customer service.
As best friends Lesley and Ashley share many of the same interests and values. As cousins we've experienced everything together over the years - special family occassions, camping trips, and even a duo adventure, backpacking across Europe. There's not much that we do apart, really, so it was only suiting that we combine our enthusiasm for fashion and green living to fill a void in the maternity and baby market in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador.
Together we have shared in the excitement as many of our friends and family members have surprised us with the wonderful news of pregnancy. We've seen bellies grow and sweet little bundles arrive.
We are delighted to offer stylish, funky and eco-friendly options that will help mothers-to-be look and feel great!
At Bellies & Bundles we aim to make every aspect of our business as green as possible.
We've minimized the use of paper. When printing is absolutely necessary we use 100% post-consumer paper. We contact customers through email and telephone and choose electronic format for bills.
Don't forget your reusable shopping when shopping at Bellies & Bundles! If you forget it's okay, but we always ask if you need one first! As an alternative to plastic bags, we are happy to provide brown bags made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper. We also offer customers the option to have clothing carefully bundled and tied together using our simple cotton twill, further reducing the need for packaging!
In addition, we reuse our boxes for storing supplies and find creative and new uses for old items. Many items in our store have been refurbished rather than buying new. Even our display crib - which is made from old hockey sticks! - was Lesley's husband's crib when he was an infant! And, of course, we recycle anything that cannot be reused.
At Bellies & Bundles we encourage our customers to donate any gently used items that mommy and baby have outgrown and no longer need. There are many families in our community that would appreciate gently used clothing, toys, and accessories.
