A NEW children's store is opening on Gloucester early next year, in place of Billie-Jean Clothes.

Moodles - which is planned to open mid-January - will cater for newborn babies and children up to the age of 12.

Stocking over 40 brands, every item in the shop will be designed and manufactured in the UK. Where possible, fabrics will also have been woven and printed in the UK.

Sarah Ubhi, founder and owner of Moodles, said: "We aim to provide a guilt-free shopping experience where customers can be assured that all items in the shop have been made by adults in the UK, who have been paid a fair wage.

"Many of the suppliers and designers are based in the South West, so products will have a low carbon footprint."

The store will sell everyday essentials, occasion wear, and gifts, as well as Sarah's own range of baby wear and blankets. She also hopes to host baby showers from the shop, and hold baby shower gift lists.

Sarah - who has lived locally for 15 years - set up Moodles two years ago, making applique t-shirts, which are created by sewing one layer of fabric to another larger piece, that is of a different texture or colour.

From November 28 to December 22, Sarah will be selling a variety of stocking fillers and presents at the Bristol Christmas Market in Broadmead to promote some of the brands that she will be stocking in Moodles.
