CINDY RICHARDSON, NEW YORK — A mom in New York City has started a clothing store to help make baby clothes more accessible to little girls.
Clothing vendors have been scrambling to sell baby clothes to mom, who has struggled to find new ones.
“There’s a huge gap for baby clothing in our community,” said Sharon Williams, a mother of two young girls.
“It’s not just because there’s a shortage of mothers, it’s because there is a shortage in clothing for girls.”
Sharon and her husband are raising two girls, ages 2 and 5.
They are using their own savings and a small fortune to make clothing.
They have been in business for five years.
“My husband was always asking me, ‘Can I buy a shirt for my girls?’ and it was always for $25,” Sharon Williams said.
Sharon Williams has started the clothing store, which sells baby clothes, baby hats, socks and more.
The store, known as “Clothing for Girls,” is part of a movement to make baby clothing more accessible for girls.
“It’s about being a mother, not being a shopkeeper,” Sharon said.
The Williamses are working with local businesses to help the little girl in need of clothes.
They hope to start up another store by summer.
The baby clothing store is a way to help girls in need, and Sharon is also working with other parents to help them too.
“We have moms that have just gotten divorced and we’re trying to make sure their baby clothes are available, too,” Sharon added.
Sharing her story with ABC News she said the store is going to offer discounts and coupons to parents who want to stock up on baby clothing.
One day, she said she hopes the store will be stocked with more baby clothing, and help make it more affordable for mothers to stock them.
