Lullaby-babies meets Dragon Duncan Bannatyne
Lullaby-babies had a close encounter with a Dragon yesterday [9/10/13] in the form of Dragons Den star Duncan Bannatyne!
However, it was not necessarily as you would imagine, face to face with the other Dragons in their den, pitching for some funds in exchange for an equity stake in our baby boutique business.
No, the chance encounter occurred on the Cross Country train to Glasgow, where the familiar face boarded the first class carriage at Cheltenham Spa.
Unfortunately it wasn’t me, but my other half who tells the story, but he says as soon as he was 100% sure it was Duncan (after he ordered his coffee with that accent) he couldn’t resist asking him for an autograph for his mumpreneur wife, which he very kindly provided. (as shown below)
He says he didn’t pester him for money making tips for the rest of his journey, as Duncan was clearly suffering from a cold, but on leaving him at Birmingham New Street station, he asked for a cheeky shout out on his popular Twitter account, and of course left him a lullaby-babies business card, just in case he has a need for a luxury baby gift in the future.
I’m oooot !
