Here is their story: http://freshly-picked.com/pages/our-story
Susan Petersen started making baby moccasins in 2009 after becoming frustrated by the lack of well-designed baby shoes. Using her second child, Gus, as a mocc-tester, and a bag of scrap leather she picked up at a yard sale, she began experimenting with designs. Working at her kitchen table, on a shoestring budget, Susan persisted through some disastrous attempts until she had created a pair of moccasins that not only looked adorable on Gus’ chubby little feet, but stayed on his feet as well.
Now we've had several contestants on the Shark Tank that had a great idea starting with a limited budget, but something about Susan's rise to the top really stands out and shows just how devoted she was to make Freshly Picked Moccasins a Success from the very beginning.
With zero capital to fund her new venture, Peterson got creative and talked her brother who owns a window installation business into giving her all the old windows so she could recycle the aluminum. After spending an entire summer busting out glass and removing thousands of screws from the aluminum frames, Susan managed to raise $200.00 to start the Freshly Picked Moccasin Business. Now just 5 years later Peterson's shear will to succeed making moccasin's for babies is coming to the Shark Tank and propel this business to brand new heights.
Actually Freshly Picked Moccasin's has already had a good amount of publicity mainly from a few celebrity babies wearing the Freshly Picked Brand including Courtney and Kim Kardashian. A pair of Freshly Picked Moccasin's was also front and center in a photograph on Perez Hilton's Popular Blog which certainly looks a lot more comfortable than his moms knee high moccasin looking boot's.
According to the Freshly Picked Shopify Website there's four moccasin styles to choose from including the Chocolate, Fools Gold, Frosted Rose and the Prince George Limited Edition Moccasins. Each pair is Handmade in the USA and retails for $60 each.
Susan Peterson ended up doing a deal with Daymond John. Woot!
