Bill Cook is known as the “Bullfrog” of Frogs Frills and Daffodils, a unique children’s clothing company with an equally non-traditional approach to design, brand collections, merchandising and sales strategy. Together with his wife and designer Mary, these grandparents have brought an original and successful approach to specialty stores that want to do business in a different, and for many, a better way. Innovations include $100 minimum orders, no pre-packs, and mix-and-match combo orders for styles, brands, and seasons.

Let’s face it, ladies. Sometimes it’s hard to ignore that perfectly roasted turkey beckoning us to get just a little more.

With numbers like that, the Christian market can provide retailers with a good following, if they carry a selection of Christian-based products for children.
One of our favorite babies, Honor Marie Warren, was recently spotted looking lovely once again with her equally lovely mom, Jessica Alba. The two grabbed breakfast at Nate ‘n Al’s in Beverly Hills.

We are so in love with you, Honor! You’re growing up to be one fine little lady.
