February - Shining the Spotlight
Happy February Friends!
I am excited to bring you another Shining the Spotlight post. February's spotlight small business is dear to my heart for a few reasons. One: it's a small woman owned business by someone that I am friends with in real life and two, it's a company that really cares about our environment and recycling and upcycling.
Caroline Califf is the mastermind behind Uptote and I love her tagline - where creativity and upcycling meet.
From rustic lavender sachets to her latest creations (selling out quickly) the FuzzBud Buddie Plushie. Her workmanship is second to none. Some of her first creations that I was attracted to was her upcycled handbags. Taking old jeans and pants and making handbags and totebags with them. I have a few in my handbag collection.
Uptote has been on Etsy since 2010. With a variety of handmade products and some supplies to make your own. Caroline has the skill level of a high end designer with the attention to detail that so many others lack. I am the proud owner of a few of her handbags and other products. We have some of her acorn garland hanging in our school room!
|Cornhole beanbags - custom colors available. Also great for homeschoolers phys ed class!|
|Aren't these just adorable!!! Some of the new colors coming out are gorgeous! What a great birthday party favor they would make!|
She is always adding items to her shop all the time. To keep up with what she offers, her Instagram page is the place to be. I encourage you to check out her shop and her IG page! Rumor has it that she is starting to offer patterns soon!
