#046 – Life in Elmira – The Bailey Baby Boutique Co with Barb Bailey
Barb Bailey is the Owner/Designer/Jack of All Trades behind The Bailey Baby Boutique Co!
The Bailey Baby Boutique Co started when Barb’s daughter was born; she started drooling at a very young age and Barb was unimpressed with the quality of bibs available to purchase! So she developed a bib that features a layer of completely waterproof fabric: no drool or spit up can soak through, so the sensitive skin and clothing underneath was protected!
With the development of her bibs (while selling to friends and family) she decided to expand my line to include blankets and hats to create matching sets!
Naturally for her, this project took on a life of its own and she began making clothing items. Customers started to request new items and lots of them ended up being added to the shop! Two worlds collided: a degree in fashion design and 10 years of retail experience and she has been fortunate to get the best of both worlds! She so happy and grateful to be able to create custom baby clothes and accessories, and she feels like she has finally found what she meant to do in life!
