Small Shop Spotlight: Tootsie’s Babies Boutique

Raise your hand if you love accessories! If you’re anything like me, that’s a resounding yes!! I’m happy to report that my girls are fans as well, and  trust me when I say their collection is growing.😉


We recently received two beautiful necklaces from Tootsie’s Babies Boutique, and I’m incredibly excited to feature them today. This fun mother/daughter team shares about the heart beyond their shop and its beautiful creations for this edition of Small Shop Spotlight.

1. Tell me a little bit about yourself (family, interests, hobbies, etc).

We are Janet (mother) and Jacki (daughter), living in central Florida, where we completely love the warm weather! In addition to designing and making all of our own necklaces and bracelets, we both work full-time outside of the home. When we aren’t working we are spending time with Jacki’s children, Isabella and Gabriel, who love having their Tootsie and Poppy living close by to play with and to go exploring the neighborhood with. Trips to the park and beach are favorites for everyone!
2. When did you open your shop and why?

Janet began making bracelets and necklaces for her granddaughters over a year ago and they always received high praise everywhere they went. When Jacki moved to Florida to be closer to family last September, they opened up shop and just love seeing other little ones and their mamas’ wearing their Tootsie’s Babies creations too.


3. How did you come up with the name Tootsie’s Babies? Does it have special meaning or significance?
Janet is Tootsie and she has always referred to her grandchildren as her babies! Seeing other children wearing our creations just means more babies for Tootsie to love!


4. What’s your favorite part about being a small shop owner?
We love coming up with new and fresh designs. Receiving pictures of others proudly wearing our designs is the most rewarding gift we could ask for!

5. What (or who) is your biggest inspiration for your beautiful creations?
Pulling from children’s lines of clothing, shoes and even children’s decor gives us inspiration. Tootsie’s oldest granddaughter has a love for all things Paris, so obviously we had to bring that inspiration into the shop! We’re also guilty of whipping up quick creations based on Jacki’s daughter’s outfit of the day. Some of those end up being such fan favorites!!
