Would you travel to visit a shop that sold cloth nappies?

What would you expect to find in a nappy shop? What nappies etc.

Do you think its a good idea?

Does anyone have any wholesale links?

I would love to look round a real-life nappy shop.

But.... sadly I'm not sure there would be the custom to make it a viable business :(

I'd love to have one local to me, but I wouldn't travel as it's so easy to shop online (plus online is almost always cheaper than shop prices!)

Ive been to Babykind but that was an hour away and wouldnt travel further. There isnt much business here on Anglesey for cloth to be honest.

I think i'd have to sell other baby items too, to make it work.

I think if you sold other things it may work!

There used to be a nice shop in Dublin here, The Natural Baby Resource, it was net and 'real life' but it had to close down its real shop :( , I think they're still open on the web but not sure. I think it's a great idea, but over here at least doesn't appear to be viable :(

My mum went to a shop in suffolk to buy me some nappies before i new much about them, and they gave her lots of advice too, she could also see and buy all the nappies there. I think you can make a better decision when seeing them properly.

I also went to have a look at "Nappies by Minki" as it is only 3/4 of an hour away from where i live, its not a shop but she showed me all her different types of nappies and gave lots of advice and was very helpful too, again it was brilliant to see before you buy!

If it was close enough i would certainly go, trouble is i would probably spend loads :lol: :oops:
