Beautiful Winter Outfits and Wooly Wonders!

Friday, 20 November 2015 08:36:14 Europe/London

It's getting cold outside, time to wrap up worm in cosy knits!

Being Swedish, we were brought up in cold weather where layering with wool was as necessary as brushing your teeth, something you don't quite perhaps do in the UK where it isn't as cold but the use of finer wool materials are definetly getting bigger along with handknitted and fairtrade knits, something we strongly support at Scandi Mini.

Here's a selection of some of our wooly wonders, beautiful hanknitted items in stunning soft muted colours.

Handknitted wool cardigan from As We Grow, an amazing Icelandic label. Little baby booties in cotton by Bonheur Du Jour.

White cotton blouse by As we Grow. Dress and mittens by fairtrade label Waddler <3

Happy Birthday Scandi Mini 4 years!!

Tuesday, 10 November 2015 12:53:16 Europe/London

Dear friends and followers of Scandi Mini (and @scandiminis on Instagram),

If you know someone or follow someone who has a shop on Instagram I don't think it comes as any surprise when I say that having an online shop is fun, a bit glamorous too in fact and for a shopaholic like myself, a dream come true.

Typically we started our shops based on a dream of doing something for ourselves; something we're passionate about, something which makes us more flexible, gives us a more balanced life, where work is important but so is family and friends. 

However, it's so much work that many give up; not just beceause of the physical demands of carrying boxes up and down or packing and sending boxes; it's very lonely working on your own (and I am a very sociable person!) and also, it's very difficult to becomeprofitable in retail. Being a small shop with no finance and little help and usually with kids around is...well, it takes a certain person, in my view.

Some key traits that I I've learnt to be useful and that I have are: never give up, happy to get my hands dirty and dig in, whatever it takes. I've carried boxes, lifted more than I can carry, packed, unpacked, wrapped and sent thousands of parcels. In this line of work, if you are a small business, that's what you have to do. Those who resist giving up willeventuallybe successful. Scandi Mini is still small, but we're consistently growing and now I have a wonderful little team of two full time people who help me mainly in the business but also with some childcare and then finally two great part-time staff. I couldn't survive a day without them! We were even so busy this year that we never celebrated our 4th birthday, so I have to admit, we're now a few months older than 4...ahum! But as we always do an autumn treat promotion, I though we'll just do them both together. Hope you agree!?

So to everyone's who is reading this; here's to a successful, fun and hard working 5th year of Scandi Mini filled with lots of fabulousness (and the odd promotion code)! I appreciate every single one of your purchases and I am so happy you find us inspiring and somewhere where you'd like to shop for your children.

Are we celebrating yet? No? Well here we go then:

Please enter code happy4th for 20% off your order starting today Tuesday 10th November ending midnight Sunday 15th November 2015. Excludes interior labels, Amy&Ivor and SS16 swim from Molo. See website banner for the full details.

Autumn Outfits!

Wednesday, 7 October 2015 06:18:25 Europe/London

One of the most difficult things to have time for is to style outfits when you're a small companya and a small team! We do try though and here are some of our most recent 'put togethers'.

We hope you can get some inspiration from this; sometimes it's so difficult to see how to clothes look on our website (we're working on it) and getting these pieces combined makes them come to life a bit better.

Top and beanie: I dig denim, skirt from Popupshop Kids

Cool jeans in the perfect washed black from I dig denim. Amazing shoes (and they are hand-made!) from Chapter 2 and beautiful sweatshirt from Danish Bangbang Copenhagen.

Stella McCartney Kids sweatshirt, the best quality boots (and they are pretty too!!) from Angulus Shoes and finally cool cropped baggy jeans (we want a pair!) from French label April Showers By Polder.

All available at Scandi Mini.

Have a lovely, lovely day!

xx Scandi Mini
