Small Business – always changing

It’s been awhile, and things have changed since last November.  Kid Frolic took a little holiday break then moved out of the studio off Lamar to become online only beginning March 2018.  Although I’d never intended this little business to be online only, not going to an office/studio most of the week does have it’s advantages.

The original intent, Kid Frolic Austin will be a small locally based business that provides quality and unique pretend play with online options for convenience and out of town customers.  I really wanted to make a go of the original party rental aspect too.  Of course, change comes quickly and sometimes with short planning for small businesses.  This little business has definitely seen some changes this past year in trying to find it’s groove.  Rentals are no longer an option, handmades and upcycled has not grown as fast as I wished.  On the other hand, I am so happy to be able to offer great quality handmade decorations from a locally owned mom business and the retail offerings, while mostly commercially based, are of nice quality from trusted brands.

I particularly love that I was able to organize and host costume exchanges!  It is my intent to continue this fun swap.

Despite changes, Kid Frolic Austin is still here with fun stuff for the kiddos – pretend play and handmade products.
