Glorious



Glorious ~ Having a striking beauty or splendor that evokes feelings of delighted admiration...
Full of beautifully selected items, Glorious is certainly living up to it's name!


Let's go shopping with Kylie & Lorna...


About Glorious...
We are two sisters who started Five Little Monkeys Ltd - a thriving children's online retail business back in 2009. We then opened a physical store October last year in Palmerston North before making the difficult decision to sell, and put our energies into Glorious which was a originally a part of FLM aimed to allow mums the opportunity to add a little something for themselves to their purchase for baby.
LOVE your business name, how did you decide...

It was one of those in the shower moments (being a mum of 3 little ones thats my only thinking space and its where all the big ideas come to me before the madness of our average day begins!) If you look at our logo you will see the definition of glorious - and it pretty much sums up our products! We love vintage, fresh and fun, Glorious is a word that we felt encompassed all of those things!





What do you love about owning your own business...

We love the flexibility it gives us to be able to work around our children, the trade shows are a hit too (if you can imagine to sisters away for a weekend, child free and shopping up a storm then you have the picture!)
 




What is your favourite product...

Oh its hard to just pick one!!! I have the "I'm walking on sunshine" Panel art by general eclectic in my ensuite - it wakes me up in the morning! I also have a selection of DANGER & lace plates, love them! I am a little crazy about anything Vintage! Lorna loves the GE locker door art, but generally we retail anything we would have in our own homes - we love it all!






How do you stay motivated... 
Its pretty easy when you get to work with such gorgeous products. Flicking through homeware magazines always inspires me, or Pinterest. And of course the fabulous feedback from our customers!


Advice for others in business...

Make sure its something you are passionate about or have a flair for. You will soon get bored in the daily grind if whatever you are doing doesn't float your boat!





Where to from here for Glorious...

Bigger, brighter and bolder! Watch this space you will see more of us! 





Staying in touch...

Currently you can find us on Facebook, after selling FLM we decided to have a new website built for us - its currently under construction and we hope to have it up and running soon! In the mean time find us on FB, contact us through the contact tab, or by commenting under any products you are interested in and we will find you!


I am so excited about Glorious and will be eagerly watching as new products are introduced! With their brand new website coming soon there is plenty to look forward to!
