Being able to create a fantastic shopping experience for my customers whilst achieving a work-life balance for my family is why Samantha Robertson started One Little Robertson back in 2020.
One Little Robertson is a home-based online baby gift & accessories shop based in Benalla, Victoria (Yorta Yorta land).
After their Travel Agency and accommodation, business was brought to its knees in 2020, they decided they needed to focus on all the good things, especially after becoming new parents to the “one little Robertson” Evan – the inspiration behind the business and the name!
Samantha loves living in North East Victoria as it’s full of so many places to visit. Just up the freeway from the capital city, just over the hill to the snowfields and everything in between.
Samantha’s store offers a wide range of gifts for newborns to toddlers and has evolved to specialise in baby gift sets and more recently adding affordable clothing and shoes.
Their aim is to make the products affordable but still keep them beautiful and unique to treat your family and friends.
When you support a small family business you are supporting a dream, we do a little happy dance every time an order comes through says, Samantha.
One Little Robertson has customers all over Australia via post and provides free delivery within 25Km of Benalla and which is growing!
The best selling product is the Goldie Princess dress – oh so gorgeous for that special occasion, even if that special occasion is digging in the sandpit!
Other products include bloomer sets and jumpsuits.
Samantha imports some of her products and sources others from Australian wholesalers and makers – such as the bib sets available.
Although the business isn’t that old, Samantha has big plans!
She is currently developing a retro-style trailer that can be used as a shop front complete with a pram-friendly ramp so that customers and their little ones can enjoy the shopping experience together. Pop-up shops are definitely on the list of things to have in the business plan going forward!
Samantha and One Little Robertson are classic examples of turning woes into great things.
Being and living in rural Australia doesn’t stop you from running the business you are passionate about, and building something that can work for you, your family and your income.
