Meet Bethany // Tiny Bandits Kids

Bethany is one creative mind! I met this beauty several months ago after I stumbled upon her super new IG and shop and contacted her right away!! OK I may have been just short of harassing her haha. But she's totally boomed since then! Her personality comes out in the rad apparel that she has created for kids. Her and her husband have put so much time, thought, and energy into making the shop what it is today and I can already see the growth becoming something that completely stands out on its own! The tees are incredibly soft and simple, yet playful and fun! Why don't you just see for yourself...

 And no, we don't usually go to the mall with a skate board in hand but this was actually Kylan's belated birthday gift! All the people in the skate shop were going nuts over the boys' tees :)

comparing :)



 

The tee shirts are tagless which I think is just one of those details that mom's of picky kids REALLY appreciate and the tag that is pinned on is actually a sticker! What kid doesn't like stickers? I love the attention to detail, the packaging, the branding... everything!! The trucker hats are a must too!! My daughter has been just as obsessed with them as the boys! Guys they have SO much more than what you see in these photos so check out their website (www.tinybandits.com)!! Their clothes are mostly unisex so girls and boys can totally rock these! By the way these are all made in the USA so I'm thinking you really can't get much better people :)


 I had the privilege of getting to do a short interview with Bethany so that we can all get to know her a little better! Ladies and Gents, meet Bethany...

How did Tiny Bandits Kids come about? 

"My biz idea came to me when I had a hard time finding cool clothes for my son…Im such a picky clothing person and nothing was exciting me…SOOOO my talented hubby helped me bring my idea to life!!! He’s my Graphic Designer!!! : )"


Who or what would you say has been your biggest inspiration along the way?

"My kids are my biggest inspiration!!! Im obsessed with dressing them and I love seeing them in stuff I create!!!"

What's a typical day in the life of Bethany?

"Waking up super early : /
Getting my kids ready for the day food/clothes/diaper bag
Running errands
Finishing up orders for Tiny Bandits
Responding to emails and making phone calls
Picking up my son from school around 3
Taking him to his after school activities
Dinner
Putting the kids to bed
Then more Tiny Bandits work
Sleep Zzzzz"

What is one of your biggest goals for this year?

"To get my line into more children’s boutiques and children’s closets!!! ; )"


If there's one thing you've learned from creating this business from the ground up that you'd want to share, what would it be?

"Ive learned not to give up and to keep going!! Its tough to own a business and raise two kids at the same time but if you truly have a dream and really believe in it you can MAKE IT HAPPEN…We can all do anything our hearts desire!!!!"


If you could have any superpower what would it be? 

"I would love to have a superpower that allows me to snap my fingers and have a sparkly clean house!!!!! : )"

Something that is top priority on your bucket list:

"To someday get all my family together and have a huge family reunion…Life is so short and I would love to see all my cousins, uncles, and aunts who I haven’t seen in a long time…I have a huge family and we are all scattered all over the place and its hard to see everyone."

I dont know about you but I'm digging number 6 :) thanks so much for sharing, Bethany! I wish you all the luck in furthering your business!! I know my kids look way cooler when they have some Tiny Bandits tees on!!
