About Mothers Goodies
Mothers Goodies is a small family run business based in Bridgnorth Shropshire.
Behind the name “Mothers Goodies” is me, Dawn Jones. I am the founder and creator of Mothers Goodies Bridgnorth.
HOW IT ALL STARTED
While on maternity leave I developed a passion for what was then, a hobby. I fell in love with making scented candles, Soy candles. At first, I was making them purely for my own use & the occasional gift but it soon turned into something more.
Previously to getting pregnant, I had worked full time in dentistry for over 15 years. I started work at my local practice at 16 before branching out into cosmetic dentistry and reconstructive dentistry..
I had always had always enjoyed hobbies in my spare time, I definitely had a crafty streak but had never considered leaving dentistry or that my hobby would become my job.
Once my son arrived I soon lost the desire for the daily commute & rat race 6 days a week. I still wanted to work but not full time. Like any parent, I wanted to spend more time with my family & our newly born son. I did not know it yet but that is when Mothers Goodies was born.
WHAT HAPPENED NEXT
In September 2012 the Name “Mothers Goodies” was created, after all, I was the Mother creating the Goodies. I began preparing for my very first craft fair in September 2012. From there I Continued to attend fairs until 2014. I was also displaying some of my items in local shops and renting shelf spaces.
In April 2015 Mothers Goodies rented their first retail space, within another shop in Bridgnorth. This was home for Mothers Goodies until October 2017 when we relocated to new premises all of our own. Mothers Goodies is now located at 1a Waterloo Terrace, Bridgnorth, wv16 4eg where we hope to stay for many more years.
Mothers Goodies also has some amazing staff members- Emma, Teagan & Pauline, they all help me make Mothers Goodies what it is today. Of course, we couldn’t forget our amazing customers. Without you Mothers, Goodies would be NOTHING.
In 2016 Mothers Goodies started running bath bomb and candle making classes. I really enjoy these and I feel excited that I am able to teach my customers a little of what I know.
Now 6 years on I have my own shop, a beautiful family, & I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to make what was a hobby into a successful new career. I am still enjoying making candles, bath bombs, soap & natural handmade products. I enjoy creating new products, experimenting with fragrance blends & essential oils. My only regret is that I didn’t do this sooner.
NON OF OUR PRODUCTS CONTAIN INGREDIENTS TESTED ON ANIMALS.
My family, friends & existing customers love our products & we hope you will too. I have such confidence in our products being skin safe & skin kind, that my whole family uses Mothers Goodies products, even my six-year-old son. He is our main bath bomb tester
