Leslie's Featured Retailer: Emily of NoPinsRequired!

Time to feature another of our Fabulous Leslie's Boutique Retailers!
Today we're interviewing Emily, the owner of No Pins Required!

Please tell us about yourself and your family, where you live, any hobbies, if you have little ones in cloth diapers-
My husband John and I live in Ferndale, Michigan.  We have one son, Jack (2.5) and another baby on the way, due in October.   We are big Detroit Tiger fans and I am an avid scrapbooker. 

Tell us about 'No Pins Required' and how it came to be that you started a cloth diaper business.
A local online cloth diaper store closed right after I had my son, and I didn’t have a local place to buy diapers.   We bought her store, and opened online only in August of 2009.   In April of 2010, we opened our brick and mortar location in Ferndale, Michigan.   We had so many local customers, it made a lot of sense.  We started out as only a cloth diaper store, but we are really a natural baby store at this point, with tons of natural products that aren’t diapers.   We are moving into a new location soon that is much larger than our current location.
Do you have a physical store or showroom?  Do you offer consultations, demos, deliveries? Any special services?
We have a brick and mortar store in Ferndale, Michigan.  We offer cloth diaper classes twice a month and Moby demos once every couple of months.   We have a gift registry that is really popular and we also offer layaway.
Store hours:  
Sunday/Monday - Closed
Tuesday 12-5
Wednesday 10-3
Thursday/Friday 12-5
Saturday 10-2
Our address: 
22446 Woodward, Ferndale, Michigan!

What's your favorite part about being a cloth diaper retailer and being involved with the industry?

I love promoting cloth diapers and getting more people using them!

What's your favorite style of cloth diaper?
All in ones, where the absorbency flips out in the wash so they dry quickly!

From the Leslie's Boutique line of products what is your favorite product and why?I love all of the Leslie’s products, but I really love the wet/dry bags and the pleated dry pocket!

What piece of advice would you give to a mom who's getting ready to make the switch to cloth diapers?
Try a variety of diapers!  You never know what you will like the best!  Try both Velcro and snaps too!
