Who Are We?
Not so much of a we, just a me...
Hello, I am Heather.
Bonnie Books and Babywear originally started out in mid-2018 as "Bonnie Books", solely a seller of Usborne Books.
It was a little difficult to sustain an income up in the Highlands of Scotland, so I wanted to branch out, especially as I had a wee one and a mortgage to consider!
Throughout Christmas 2019, I tried my hardest to learn how to sew , starting with the wee Unicorn Pillows you see on my shop page.
As I became more confident, I began to try clothing - I did fairly well, considering the years it had been since using a sewing machine...
Alongside the baby wear, I still had a large amount of Usborne stock, which led me to start selling wholesale books, instead of Usborne only titles. This enables me to offer a wider range to my customers, and can get almost any book requested.
So, now I get to spend precious moments with my little one, who is growing up fast. And I spend the rest of my time running a holiday let, organising our local market, and frequenting other local fairs and markets - I thoroughly love what I do, despite not always making very much!
