All things nice - Tillytom

Our July 31 Ballarat market is coming up quick! 
Many stunning retailers from Ballarat and beyond are booked in to showcase their beautiful goods with you - one of whom is Anna from the lovely Tillytom. Anna is shining in our 'all things nice' spotlight today. Thanks Anna!

Are you more sugar or spice?
Definitely sugar – I am a serious chocolate lover and eat way too much of it!

What inspired you to start your own business?
After the birth of our second child Matilda I bought myself a sewing machine and originally started out sewing cloth nappies to build up my own stash as I had two in cloth at the time. Then I started making all things ‘pink’ for Miss Matilda, little dresses and pants, and with the encouragement of family and friends, it just snow-balled from there to my first local market and opening up a store on madeit.

How did you name your business?
My business name came about simply by a combination of our oldest two children’s names Tom & Matilda (Tilly). Our newest little family member Nate was a surprise package, and people are always asking me if I am going to change the name of the business. Nope, but maybe a new range in the future might be included with his name in it : )

What is your favourite piece from your own range?
Right now, my favourite item is the new ruffle dress. I have it in a few different colourways and it’s a simple little peasant style dress with flutter sleeves and a great big ruffle down the front. Generous sizing and easily layered in the cooler months or on its own in the warmer months.

             Oh my I think I just found Miss Spice's latest wardrobe addition!
