To add to the amazing women-led businesses we have around Brisbane is a new baby boutique, uniting the talents and local products of ten inspiring women entrepreneurs. Opening on Oxford Street in Bulimba on Saturday, April 15, LoloPops Baby Gifts is set to become a new spot to nab all the necessities when welcoming new life into the world.
From eco-friendly nappies and childrenswear to high-quality home decor and art, LoloPops has collaborated with a range of women-led businesses to bring you all the baby products you need, under one roof.
In addition to the showcase of local hand-made items for sale, the store itself will also have seating for grandparents and breastfeeding mothers, as well as a play area for babies and children with free face-painting, balloon twisting and colouring.
You can also cure your caffeine craving while you shop from the coffee cart onsite.
The grand opening on the fifteenth will feature a ribbon-cutting ceremony as well as freebies and exclusive offers. The first 40 coffees from the coffee cart will be free of charge, so head in at 10am sharp if you want to score one.
Lola Bowder, the founder of LoloPops Baby Gifts, has been running her store online for a year already, so it’s amazing to see it evolve in collaboration with a diverse group of women in business.
“My store has been created to provide a welcoming space,” Lola says. “I wanted to support other women in business and empower each other to be successful with our small businesses.”

“We are a group of women in business coming together and we are extremely supportive of each other,” says Natalie, founder of Nappy Luxe.
“With only 22% of start-ups being founded by women in Australia, I think it’s great that Lola is following her dream whilst shining a spotlight on other women like myself who are following their own dreams. I hope this collaborative store will help inspire more female entrepreneurs in Australia.”
