Freshly Picked – Review and GIVEAWAY! *CLOSED*

Freshly Picked – Review and GIVEAWAY! *CLOSED*

Unless you’ve been living on another planet, you must have heard of Freshly Picked. Most well-known for their moccasins, Freshly Picked started creating tiny baby shoes in 2009. Since then, owner Susan Petersen has been featured on NBC’s hit show Shark Tank and has taken the social media world by storm.

Once I laid eyes on FP’s colorful moccs, I knew our children had to have a pair (or two or three!). The only problem was choosing a color. With so many options, it’s easy to start a mocc wardrobe.

If only they came in adult sizes! Lucky for us, Freshly Picked launched a GORGEOUS line of handbags this past month, complete with every scrumptious color to match their sweet little moccs. Who doesn’t want to be matchy-matchy with their littles?!

Our youngest daughter & I picked together & chose the color Golden Rod for her moccs. She loves her tiny shoes! Though she’s only two years old, I’m pretty sure she says the word ‘comfortable’ each & every time she puts on her moccs. They are adorable on or off & are made from the smoothest, freshest leather. They’re so easy to put on (and of course as toddlers will do, take off) – she does it all by herself! Not to mention, every single time she wears them out & about, people ooh & ahh all over the place. Those super yellow moccs are quite the eye catcher!

Freshly Picked has a size chart right on their website, so if you’re wondering what size to order, they say moccs run true to size. In our experience, they do indeed fit accurately. What’s even better is that they seem to give a little with growth. Always nice to not have to buy shoes every two months! They do go up to a size 10 to adorn your preschooler, too.

Susan seems like one of the greatest people to know. Every time I see her posts or catch an interview, she just shines. She’s a great role model for handmade Mompreneurs like myself. Susan really started her business from nothing – & proves one can move mountains!

I’m looking forward to increasing our mocc obsession & hope to have a pair in every color! In the meantime, I’ve got to get my hands on the birch/neon green Carryall – YOWZA!

Thanks, Susan and the inspiring staff at Freshly Picked, for spreading your awesome love around in the form of tiny shoes. I’m sure the handmade community would agree that your mark has been quite tremendous!
