A Letter to Brand Reps + a Chance to Win $1,600+ in Small Shop Gear!

How does $1,600 in small shop prizes sound to you?  You could be one of six lucky reps to share these AMAZING prizes from a bunch of great small shops!  Keep reading to find out how to enter!


When I decided to open a small online shop in 2014, I started out like most other shop owners… with big dreams and a very small amount of cash.  I had decided to leave my full time job and try to make it as my own boss.  It was the scariest time of my life.  Although I knew we had great products and a pretty decent website, I had no idea how I could possibly get the word out about our new family business.  Advertising and marketing wasn’t something I had the money for, but I knew that without it, there would be no sales.  I was determined to make it though, no matter what.


I tried posting on Facebook, hoping that our friends and family would share with their friends and family.  But a week and maybe two sales later, I knew that it wasn’t enough and unless we were going to eat Ramen Noodles for breakfast, lunch and dinner, we needed to grow our business faster than that.  While I love Ramen Noodles, there are only so many you can eat, you know?! I knew I needed to turn this small shop into a 2nd income for our family.  This wasn’t just something I wanted, it was something I needed.  Things felt hopeless until I stumbled across a small article talking about brand reps.  I was immediately intrigued and wasted no time.  Our first brand rep search was posted the following day.  I had no idea what I was doing, but I dove right in and it was the best decision I ever made.


Fast forward three years to today… I have worked with so many different Mamas and even a few Dads.  While I was looking for a business relationship that provided advertising and photos in exchange for free or discounted items, I wound up finding so much more in these amazing humans… I found support, friendships, laughter, shoulders to cry on and a sincere love for small shops and their owners that I never knew existed.  Without each of them, I am not sure where I would be or where my family would be.  I’m not sure how I would have paid my bills, been able to take the girls to extra curricular activities or even have enough money to buy food some weeks, I kid you not.  When things were looking dim, my brand rep team was the sunshine, lighting the way for my small business.  They kept me motivated and gave me the strength to keep going.


Life gets hectic, especially for small shop owners and we may forget to stop and appreciate the important people in our lives.   While we may not say it enough, I’m sure I can speak on behalf of most small shop owners in saying that without our brand reps, we wouldn’t have a small business!  We wouldn’t have beautiful images to share on our social media and on our website.   We wouldn’t have the new customers that they brought in through promotion, pictures and word of mouth.  We wouldn’t have a strong group of people to bounce ideas off of. We wouldn’t have the honesty and sincere concern for our well-being, like we do because of them.  We wouldn’t have the option to spend more time with our families instead of working a 9-5 (or two) every day.  Our brand reps are the backbone of our small shop.  They are the real heroes and it’s time we shouted it from the roof tops!


Let’s take a moment to celebrate each and every person that takes time of their day to take and edit pictures, share our images and images of their family in/with our products, interact on our social media feeds and talk to others about the small shops they love.  Let’s tell them how amazing and appreciated they really are!  And to my personal team, I love you all from the bottom of my heart!  (go check them out, they ROCK!).


Thank you brand reps, for your loyalty, your love and your time.  We LOVE you!


Now… it’s GIVEAWAY time!!!!

    Hi 👋🏽,

    @dreamingkids here! I would like to nominate 3 of my brand reps.

    1) @kaedence_marie
    I have been working with her for about a year Kaedence can model anything from a lace dress to one of our harem pants. The images her mom sends me are always so great and professional that I never have to ask her to re shoot. Her mom is the sweetest she even gives me ideas for some new styles 😊.

    2) @breezystyle
    This past year I have send her so many items and I usually receive about 20-30 images per outfit I don’t know how mom does it. Super sweet and they go above and beyond to work with my time frame.

    3) @iamsirkingsley
    I had the pleasure to meet him and his whole family in our first photo shoot they are the sweetest. He can rock any outfit and his posses are just perfect 👌. He’s the cutest little dancer and is always wearing our harem pants to his classes. The quickest TUT can even shoot the same day 😁.

    She is a rep but she also helps me manage my social media. Aileen is amazing at giving me advice, helping promote my shop, and she takes amazing photos of Brooklynn. I seriously don’t know what I would do without her! She is an amazing friend!
    She is always going above and beyond promoting and helping out whenever asked! I am so grateful to have her and Amelia on our team! Her photos are absolutely amazing!
    Brittany has been so amazing on our team! Even when I messed up! 😂🙈 she’s always promoting our shop and taking gorgeous photos of Hannah! Absolutely love having her on my team!
    Angie is seriously amazing! She is new to my team but she is great at getting the word out there about our sales. I’m so glad that she has joined our team!

    Hello! I’m the owner of @shopbeingbabes and although it’s so hard to choose because I love my entire team, I’d love to nominate the three ladies that have helped me so much more than I could’ve ever imagined.
    – @aiden_wayne01_22
    She has been with me from the very start, before I even opened! I know that I can count on her under any circumstance. She always provides amazing pictures and has such a bright positive attitude!
    – @chi_and_braxton
    She is more than a rep, working with her has made me a new friend! She’s always doing whatever she can to help my little shop grow, providing me with ideas, pictures, you name it, and she’s the sweetest woman!
    – @saraidianne
    I don’t even know where to begin with how wonderful she is to work with, she’s so positive and such a blessing to have on my team. She helps me without me even asking! She provides amazing pictures, my mood changes completely ever time I get an email from her!

    Hi. I am the owner of @cayleeandco. All my reps are awesome but I would like to nominate she has been a loyal customer/rep since my bow shop opened. She is now an ambassador for my shop and goes above the call of duty to help me succeed. She has supported me through all the ups and downs of this journey. She has become a dear friend to me. She deserves to win this.

    Second I nominate @sheleavesasparkle she is my 2nd ambassador. She is an awesome rep and goes above and beyond to get me awesome quality photos for my shop. A big help to my brand.

    Third is @magnoliasunflower this twin mama is a genuine small shop supporter. She dresses her kids in handmade from head to toe. She is hard working and is very loyal and reliable.

    Fourth is @captainkl she helps with things behind the scenes like editing pics cause I couldn’t quite master it. She is there when I need feedback and opinions 24/7. She another veteran rep on my team.

    Fifth is @addy.and.zoe they are newbies to my team starting as Bes they quickly got promoted to rep because she is loyal and hard working. She genuinely supports my brand.

    All my reps are the bomb dot com but these 5 go hard in the paint for me and I could not do it without them. They deserve to win.

    Hi there! I’m

    I’d like to nominate members of my team, as well as some amazing people I’ve had the pleasure of working with for years!!

    1) First off! She and her mama have been a part of my life (shop and friends!) since she was 2 years old. She’s now 9, and these ladies have done nothing but support myself and my little shop. Even when I didn’t feel worthy of that support sometimes!

    2) Where do I start with this family…. I met them a very short time ago through a comment on a post about a rocking 70s outfit. We were fast friends, and I came to quickly learn how supportive and giving Summer’s beautiful heart is!

    3) Chelsea is AMAZING! I love her and little Brinley so much!

    2nd post from!

    I’m SO INCREDIBLY thankful for my entire team!! I wouldn’t be anywhere near as successful as I am without them!

    That being said, I have a couple more!

    @kaydgirl @willow.and.silas @fluffpuff_cayleen @quinnstagram13 (who’s caught in all this hurricane craziness, pray for their family!) @kensley_roo @lvstar1 @ziggyandclementine @colbysclothes @parkerblazekayleigh @lifewithkelandkoh and @lillian_grace16

    I couldn’t help it, I had to come back and add them. Each of these reps and their mamas are amazing!

    Oh my goodness, had been chipping away at all of the guidelines, while in the process of moving. Our new place does not have iinternet or wifi connections. So, had to sneak away to a cafe nearby for this 😇 Hope it still count 🙏

    Hey there! I own @NaturalKidsRockToo I couldn’t let this contest go by without nominating @avaandanabelle I can go on and on about how adoreable the girls are and how they take and send great quality pics. I also quit my job to chase my dreams, while avoiding a ramen noodle only diet. Brand Reps like @avaandanabelle have supported our shop and kept us motivated to do more and continue to grow. We are in TN and we received a sell from someone about 10 miles from us. When I met with the shopper, I asked how she heard of us assuming we had a mutual friend in the area. Turns out @avaandanabelle’s mama sent her to us. Did I mention they live on the opposite side of the country from us? That type of love and support is appreciated. Yes this mama and her cuties may get tees or sample products to try, but they’re giving us so much more than we give them. They are giving us a chance to fulfill our dreams! Thank you @avaandanabelle for all you do and thank you @thesmallfashionista for having such an awesome giveaway to reward these awesome brand reps!

    Hey The Small Fashionista!! We are a new shop and only have a few reps but we are beyond grateful for them and look forward to growing our shop and growing in the rep community! We would love to nominate all of our reps but for this contest we would like to nominate @avaandanabelle! The girls our fierce ,adorable, and fashionable! Their mom sends great quality pictures! We get so excited when we receive an email of their pictures because we know they’re going to do well on our Instagram and our site! When we have contests and giveaways their mama promotes our page like no other! She also shows so much love to other reps on our page as well as other pages that we follow! We are so grateful for her love and support! Because we are a new page we were overwhelmed with the amount of inquiries for reps. We tried a few that unfortunately didn’t work out because they didn’t send pictures after receiving merchandise. We didn’t have enough time to be upset about this loss because this mama stepped up her game and supported us more than she even knows. We recently reached out to them to verify their address before sending new merchandise. We were surprised to learn that they had to move because of a flood. Although these cuties we’re currently involved in a huge move we didn’t realize it because they haven’t skipped a beat when it comes to great pictures and great representation for our brand as well as other small shops! Thank you for all you do! Thank you to the great mamas and papas everywhere for helping our small shops become a big success! Thank you to all the shops supporting this giveaway! You make me proud to be a new shop owner and we look forward to being able to give back in the near future!
