Moms, Minivans, & Messes: What is the name of your business and who are your potential customers?

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Why did you choose (Your above answer) as your customers?
Emerson Grace Boutique: Having a baby girl was a dream of mine since I was little, when my daughter Emerson was born I always wanted to match her. Designing fashion forward products for moms and their “minis” has been so fun, what’s cuter than matching your kids???? Our other product lines include the incredibly popular #Momlife apparel, coffee mugs, wine glasses, bags and accessories. As a mom we’re all looking for that easy to wear outfit and when it says #Momlife you’re given an excuse to be late or it explains our little flusters. I personally love sporting my #Momlife gear at Target, Starbucks, soccer games or Costco.
Moms, Minivans, & Messes: Are you a mom? If so, did this business have anything to do with initiating Emerson Grace Boutique?
Emerson Grace Boutique: I am a mother of two, Carter (5) and Emerson (2). Emerson was the driving force for creating Emerson Grace Boutique. I was always creating accessories for her, people would always comment on them so I thought I would test the market. The rest is history.

Moms, Minivans, & Messes: What sets your products apart from other similar products?
Emerson Grace Boutique: Running a small business presents many challenges; one of the biggest is the fight to separate your products from the masses. I strongly believe that our products are made with the highest quality available and whenever possible sourced and manufactured in the US. We are not a large retailer so I’m able to listen to the consumer- often I’ll ask for input on what the next design should be, or color. This gives people a unique opportunity to be part of the design experience. Finally, if something is not perfect- I won’t sell it.
