Polk County Boutique Adapts to Coronavirus Baby Boom

January 1, 2021 –Spectrum News 9 – Call it a side effect of the coronavirus lockdown.

The owner at Bellies-2-Babies Boutique in Winter Haven, FL tells Spectrum News that she has seen a boom in recent sales.

“We have a lot of new moms, and also as people are starting to plan socially-distanced baby showers, they want to buy unique gifts,” said Bellies to Babies owner, Janet Farmer.

Farmer just recently took to Facebook, offering new moms a special gift from her boutique.

“This shop has been here since September of 2020,” explained Farmer. “It was pandemic time; probably not the best time to be making a move like that but we did it.”

Now, Farmer says she is happy to supply the demand from new mother’s coming out of last year’s pandemic lockdown.

“They do shop online, but they really like to touch and see and feel the quality for themselves. That’s why they come here,” said Farmer.
