I have always cooed at the beautiful headpieces that babies and little girls wear. I have to admit that I have even placed a few bows in my son’s hair, only to have them ripped out within seconds of placement. I’m outnumbered by the boys, but that doesn’t mean I can’t shop for my niece.
I am excited to share a spotlight post on Christina Crowe the owner and creator of Plum Polka Dot.
Bespoke designs for the little miss to wedded bliss & beyond
Long before I decided to launch my own line of handcrafted accessories, known as Plum Polka Dot, I knew that I had a knack for all things creative and crafty.
When I wasn’t working for a major Canadian retailer at both the store and corporate level, I was often found creating one-of-a-kind, handmade gifts for friends and family for Christmas, birthdays and other special occasions.
In 2008, my husband and I welcomed our twin sons into the world and quickly became accustomed to life with two boisterous boys. But everything changed when our baby daughter, Julia, joined the family nearly five years later. I soon fell in love with outfitting our ‘little miss’ in beautiful garments and accessories, and was particular about sourcing locally produced, premium quality designs.
Unsuccessful in my search, and armed with a decade of experience in customer service, purchasing and supply chain and project management — and a passion for crafting — I decided to launch my very own line of custom accessories, and thus Plum Polka Dot was born.
Plum Polka Dot offers a wide range of colourful and petal-soft accessories including headbands, hair clips and ties, and maternity sashes that are perfect for special occasions, photo opportunities and everyday use. Our distinctive accessories are ideal for any age — from newborns through to adults — and are lovingly and individually made with a creative touch and a keen eye for the finest details.
Christina has also collaborated with us for Child Life Month and is giving away a $20.00 store credit to the winner. Check out the post Accessorize Your Tough Little Girl: Giveaway to enter.
