hello from June & January
What’s in a name, really?

Four weeks after I started stock piling items I had sewn at my kitchen table in a tiny Brooklyn apartment in summer of 2011, I was still struggling to think of a name for my yet-to-be-open Etsy shop. By some strange luck, that I truly don’t even recall, I came to Little Hip Squeaks. Everyone was always commenting on how clever it was, how cute it was. It has served me so very well these past 4 years, but it’s time to say goodbye Little Hip Squeaks, and hello June & January.

June & January, the months, in order, in which my beautiful babies arrived on this earth.

I had no idea of the things that would come when I started this business. Its a business I would like to expand, to grow, to take the brand to a bigger and better place. It’s a brand I want people to remember for it’s basic, well made pieces. Clothes their children laughed and played and smiled in.
June & January timeline

Over the last 4 years, this business has become something completely unrecognizable from the business I started with borrowed sewing machine and a few yards of cotton from Joann Fabrics.

This name change kicks off some other incredibly exciting things for our business. We’ve added a second manufacturer, to help us expand our styles and offerings, and to help us keep your favorites in stock. We’ve begun working with a distribution center to get your order fulfilled faster, and with an automated system that will reduce errors with over-selling and shipping mistakes, PLUS faster ship times. We’re moving our HQ a few doors down, to a beautiful space with enough square footage for a conference table that I can invite other makers, CEOs and like-minded creatives to join me for lunch while we talk everything from biz to babies. We’ve also hired a small handful of people who help us grow our brands presence in the media and our own online (and offline!) community.

We’re looking forward to the future, adding new styles, a wider range of sizing, and introducing new collections and collaborations outside of what we’ve done in the past. We’re so excited and hopeful that you’ll continue to support us 110% during this next stage of our business, and want to thank you all again for showing us that you’re truly the best customers and fans a girl could ask for.
