Rachael and Colin White of Thingimijigs were featured in the Guardian this week. I’ve know their business for many years (on the eBay PowerSeller Boards) from way before Tamebay was launched so was absolutely thrilled to see them in the paper.
Thingimijigs is “The site for busy mums” and was founded on the premise that if Rachael and Colin’s three children all wanted something than surely other mums were out shopping for the same items too so if you’re looking for kids branded items – everything from Disney Frozen Pyjamas, Minnie Mouse Bag, Power Rangers Sunglasses some 2,000 other lines – that is Thingimijigs!
Starting out in 2004 with just an eBay account, £200 and a kitchen table and computer, they are now just about to move into their new purpose built 10,000 sq ft warehouse as they have outgrown their current warehouse. They’ve now turned their £200 into a £1.4m turnover business!
It’s always good to hear of a business that’s doing well and I’m so pleased Rach and Colin are one of the success stories. Head over the the guardian to read the whole article which also includes a profile of John and Gill from Bamford Trading.
