Our Story so far...
In 2016, we embarked on a business journey, envisioning the concept of party bundles – an all-in-one solution for stylish party decor. While Maurice ventured to China to meet suppliers, I continued working my day job as a Year 11 Coordinator and Year 12 Psychology Teacher.
Upon Maurice's return, we found a supplier, stored inventory in unconventional places like our garage, sister-in-law's dance school, and my uncle's spare rooms as we didn’t have the money to rent a warehouse. As party bundles gained traction, I decided to explore the baby market with Felt Ball Mobiles, and Maurice helped craft the frames by hand cutting and sanding embroidery hoops. Upon sales of our baby mobiles, we decided to expand to include letter blocks and later dummy clips.
In 2017, despite facing fertility challenges, we were blessed with our daughter Cassia. Business didn't stop; we worked tirelessly, even from the hospital, balancing parenthood and entrepreneurship.
In 2018, we hired our first staff member and invested in laser machines, expanding our product range. In 2019, the workload led to our first factory and more staff. We decided to shift from party supplies to baby decor and expanded further.
2020 brought both the pandemic and our second daughter, Charlize. Despite challenges, our business thrived, culminating in the launch of Australia's only Australian Made Dummy - CMC Dummies.
2022 saw the introduction of the CMC Hold Me range, a testament to our commitment to innovation and we are far from finished!
We owe our success to your continued support.
Thank you for joining us on this incredible journey.
