I can really appreciate the hard work it takes to come up with a creative idea on your own and take it to market. Someone who’s really impressed me lately is Monica Wreede. She is a mom of three, wife, inventor and business owner of not one, but two businesses! With a background designing children’s clothing and accessories, Monica is able to combine motherhood, creativity and business into something she looks forward to every day.
And every day it is! Whether it’s inspiration from the playground or a creative idea that strikes her in the middle of the night, Monica’s company, The Boutique Kids, features handmade clothing and accessories for boys and girls. A true “mompreneur,” Monica even taught herself to sew! They have everything from hair bows to bibs, bloomers to bottoms, and tops too. They are wonderfully unique and can be custom ordered.
Her second venture, Accessory Connectz, features a patent-pending removable and interchangeable strap that allows for customization of flip-flops, headbands, pet collars and more. You can purchase the strap alone or as part of a starter kit and voila… you’re ready to accessorize! Monica offers a variety of flowers, a new bridal collection, and a pet collection. Check out the super cute Daisy Flowers, perfect for Fido!
Customization is critical in accessories. I’ve seen a major growth in our new lines of Bobee removable and repositionable wall decals; people are all about adding flair that fits their style, and providing them various options to make something their own seems to really resonate.
Monica’s sales are growing like crazy, and she’s expanded to the bridal category. Check out her new video!
So… let’s customize! Flip flop season is almost here and I’ll be adding the pink daises to mine. What Accessory Connectz would work for your flip-flops? Let us know in the comments below.
