WAHM Wednesday- Spotlight on Bree & Lia Boutique!

Today’s spotlight is on a mom who has a daughter Evie’s age and makes absolutely adorable crocheted hats!  Perfect for photography, baby showers or just to get some attention for your perfect cherub.


Name: Holly
Location: Duluth, MN
Business Type: Handmade crochet beanie hats & accessories
Kiddos Names/ages: Aubrey (almost 4) & Julia (almost 8 months)
Why did you decide to start a WAHM buisness? I learned how to crochet from my Grandma when I was younger so I knew the basics of crochet before I even thought of selling my work. I started making beanies for my daughters and for friend's kids then decided one day to make an Etsy store to see if any of my items would sell. I started off slow - adding new items here and there. Now, about 9 months later I've created a growing business I love to work on every day!

What if your most favorite part of having your own business? I love hearing feedback from families who've bought from me. It's always nice to hear that others enjoy your product and that their kids are happy and excited to wear it! I also love getting 'Fan Photos' from others wearing Bree & Lia!

What is your least favorite? I honestly don't have a 'least favorite' thing about it - I sometimes get a little overwhelmed with orders around big holidays such as Christmas or Halloween but it's not a bad thing to be busy!
How long have you had your business? How long have you done your craft? I've been crocheting since I was younger and I've been making beanies with Bree & Lia Boutique since April 2010.
What has having your own business added to your life? It's added a lot of fun! I get to fall asleep at night thinking of fun new ideas I can work on the next day! :)
What makes your business special? I think my items are special because I have a nice mixture of things for any occasion. Whether a beanie is to be given to a new Mommy for their newborn to wear coming home from the hospital, a beanie to wear at a Baby's First Football game, a Trip to Disney World, or a beanie to be used as a Halloween costume or Photo Prop - everyone can enjoy them! 

Here are some of my favs from Holly:
