Cute as a Button was born with the arrival of my son Hudson. At 8 months old, I had shopped everywhere in the Portland metro area when it came to baby products and clothing. Since my darling son despised the car seat, we could not take him more than 20 minutes away from home, quickly discovering there was a great need for a baby store in our hometown of Wilsonville, Oregon. This is really when the store started to come to life. Meeting with other local moms, I realized that I was not the only one with this yearning for adorable baby clothes and natural baby products. I knew that the brick and mortar store would take a lot of planning, and in the meantime, I wanted to start supplying people with the goods they wanted, so the website was launched.
My background is in the fashion industry, graduating from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising with a degree in Merchandise Marketing. I love pretty things, but also things that are highly functional and safe for my baby. At Cute as a Button, we believe that products should not only be good, but good for you. We are a boutique, so we try and offer things that you will not see at the big box baby stores.
Jump forward to December 2015 and the site is doing way more than I ever could have imagined it could be. My "hobby store" has grown into one of the top 4% of online stores started around the same time as mine according to Shopify! We have added a ton of new products and lines including gear brands like Nuna and Dockatot! I am so blessed to be able to stay home with my big "baby" boy every day but also share my love of unique baby products with all of my amazing customers, many whom have become friends.
I greatly appreciate the support family and mommy friends in this business venture. If there is anything I can do for you, please use the "contact us" form and let me know.
What people are saying about Cute as a Button:
"I just ordered some bath treads from Cute as a Button Baby Boutique ...and I must say I am impressed! Even with the busy holiday season, my order was shipped out the same day and received the next day! Plus the owner added some candy to my package and it really made me feel special and valued as a customer! Anytime I need something for my little boy, I will check Cute as a Button first!" -Christine Dixon via Facebook
"Thank you very much for sending me an Ezpz Happy Mat in the Limited ...Edition color "mint" to Luxembourg (Europe)! There was no chance for me to order it in Europe - but you enabled my special order although you don't deliver to Europe usually. :-) The mat is great (and the Happy Bowl also is) and the color is amazing. It took 14 days until it was delivered. Thanks a lot for your great customer service and the nice chat with Kayti!" -Ja Ni Ne via Facebook
"Thank you so much for the fast shipping on this Natursutten Binkie. We've been trying different styles with no luck. I figured my little guy hated the silicone since he's EBF so I searched for a latex. Saw this, looked at Natursutten Facebook for reviews and saw your boutique on their page. The little things like wrapping in tissue paper neatly and the little Airhead in there just made it a little more personal. Since it seems to be a huge success, I now know where I can turn to get more. Thank you so much" -Jillian Gonzalez via Facebook
"I received my Tula last week and I have to say...I'm in love!! It's everything I wanted. Having so much fun carrying my lil girl and I have you to thank for it. Thank you so much!
