So what's a mom to do when she can't find a well-designed pair of baby shoe's? If you're like Susan Peterson the owner of Freshly Picked, you get a bag of scrap leather out and create your own. Not just any pair baby shoes, but a very comfortable pair of moccasins they hardly notice wearing. After several design changes, Peterson finally came up with a workable pro-to-type her son Gus successfully wore and Freshly Picked (made) just for him.

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.
