Founder Jennifer Pope explains, "We started in 1998 as a children's furniture store, selling handmade furniture of our own design. We quickly expanded to include a full range of children's offerings, each selected for durability and the wonderful, whimsical qualities that make childhood so special."
In selecting eWish gift registry system, co-owner Melissa LaSalle noted, "We have always had a gift registry program in our Chicago stores, but we thought it was time to go to the next level and open it up to people beyond Chicago so that anyone in the country could register with us online or purchase gifts for their friend or family on our website." eWish integrates well with TheRedBalloon.com which uses the Yahoo shopping platform. eWish is a full service registry system and includes social networking features like Guestbook, Photo Album, RSVP and eNotification system plus it keeps track of all purchases.
