Hello! Welcome to Hola BB.
This is me, Olivia and my little family who are all a big part of my little shop.
Originally from London I moved to NL a few years ago with my husband. I had my first son Bo in Nov’16 and he changed everything, the semi corporate world of Google no longer appealed to me. I wanted to create something that I could do alongside Bo, that mixed with my long standing dream of owning a concept store full of little gathered items from across the world, Hola BB was born.
I love sourcing products from across the world so you'll find beautiful items from the UK, Netherlands, Spain, Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, the US. But all have something in common, they are all items I have or would choose to use myself.
How we got our name
Long story short I was on holiday with some friends when I decided to take the leap into setting up my own little shop, my friends daughter was fascinated by Bo and being Spanish she would shout at the top of her lungs 'Hola Bebe'. It was the cutest thing ever and just stuck. I dropped the e's to make it BB which stands for my son's name, Bo Benjamin.
Hola BB - Welcome to the world little Bo, this shop is for you.
What's important to me
I'm a huge believer that children's products should, where possible, be sustainable, made from natural or low impact materials and most importantly provide value for money for new parents.
I love small and independent businesses, actively going out of my way to avoid the bigger brands stocked by other shops. I especially love businesses run by other mums so if you have a product you think fits the shop feel free to get in touch!
Brands that give something back to the world also feature highly in our store, from Olli Ella’s fair trade goods, The little Greens Sheep groups support of the Wildlife Trust in the UK and Little Magpies work with the PANDA foundation which offers pre and post natal depression advice and support.
I’m actively looking to find a charity to support myself, one local in NL and one global, so if you have suggestions please do get in touch.
Postage and Packaging of your order
I keep postage costs as low as possible.
Unless stated in the product description all packages are posted out within 2 business days, tracked via Post NL or DHL. I try my best to ship orders received before midday the same day however with a little one in tow it's unfortunately not always possible.
There is so much waste in the retail industry, I really don't want to add to this!
I only use recyclable packaging paper or recycled cardboard boxes to post items, no unnecessary printed products, invoices, branding or marketing are included, if you would specially like a printed invoice in with your order just let me know.
Where needed a small amount of bubble wrap may be used however I avoid this if possible, I do not use plastic bags or wrapping aside from this as it's really not necessary and is doing considerable harm to our planet.
Sending a gift? Just drop me a mail and I can include a personalised card for you.
