We are Axel & Andrea Foley and this is our amazing family. Andrea is the founder of Pirates & Pixies® and the CEO of The Darling Group.
Our business started in 2007 with Diaper DuDee Diaper Service in Des Moines, IA.
Our first child was born in 2009 and we acquired American Diaper Service in Omaha, NE; we were very busy!
Just one year later we moved to Omaha and opened our retail store, Baby Junk. Since then we have grown both our businesses and our family. We now have 3 children: Xander, Westyn and Sloan.
We pivoted our product offerings to resale items and with that we changed our name to Pirates & Pixies® in 2017.
In 2020, we sold Diaper DuDee Diaper Service to focus on our goal of franchising. In 2021, The Darling Group created the Pirates & Pixies® franchise.
From the day we started washing poopy diapers in our basement to today, our simple goal has always been to provide resources to local families. Whether that was washing their diapers, teaching them how to wear their baby in a carrier, or give them cash for their kids’ items.
Today our main focus is on providing affordable resale clothing from Preemie to Youth size 14, Maternity, Gear, Toys for all ages, Shoes, Books, Baby Essentials, Breastfeeding Essentials and Fashion Accessories!
