Why did you choose your business name?
Lillian and I liked it because it was a term of endearment from our childhood, your "best bumchum" was your "best friend". And the fact that it had the word bum in the name was appropriate as your kids will sit their bums on their sofa too, cute.
What have you most enjoyed in your career so far?
The buzz of knowing that families all over the country are enjoying our product. It makes us feel so proud of our achivement of estabilshing a wonderful brand.
Have you had any major highlights, personal or business in the last few years?
A highlight for us was launching our business in November 2010 after 12 months of research and development. It was a wonderful feeling having such a positive response from the market and gave us the reassurance that we were onto a wonderful thing.
What inspires or motivates you?
Being able to make a living by being creative with your best friend, that motivates me! Oh yeh! and my three kids he he he.....
..and lastly tell me one things about yourself that you love but has nothing to do with business.
I love antique tea cups and saucers. What I love is the artwork, the style, the era they came from as well as the fact that many people have shared many a story around them, as I do, when my friends come to visit. Luckily my business partner is a garage sale junkie who has a great eye for vintage fashions, so she's always on the lookout for me :)
