Company Feature | Ashley Petite
As I browse through the online baby boutique, Ashley Petite, I “almost” feel the longing to have another baby! I know that my baby days are a thing of my past now and it’s up to my sisters to have more babies so auntie can spoil them! I know Ashley Petite will be a stop on my baby shopping list because their products are so darn adorable!
I love handmade items and supporting artisans. Monica, the owner of Ashley Petite, is so talented. Her selection is diverse and I love her style. Her shop offers everything you would need to buy for a baby either for your own family or as a gift for a friend. You can find blankets, burp cloths, diaper clutches, stroller cushions, jewelry, tutus and the list goes on!

Ashley Petite also has a Registry!! So if you are expecting, then you can pick out the items you want and have your baby shower guests buy them for you. All the prices are very reasonable and you can put products at different price points for your guests to purchase.
Monica, the owner of Ashley Petite, is one of the bloggers participating in our Fall Follower Giveaway Tour for $750 in October and she is awesome to work with. She’s very professional and a true gem. I had a chance to catch up with her and ask her a few questions about her store and here’s what she had to say…
Please tell me about Ashley Petite.
Ashley Petite came about when I had my daughter Ashley, now 4 years old. My son was 4 at the time and moving into a booster seat. Instead of buying a whole new car seat, I wanted to change the cover. My grandmother, an avid sewer told me to buy some fabric and bring it to her. Next thing I know, we’re designing and sewing all sorts of baby products!
What sort of products can people find in your store?
We sell products such as car seat cover, stroller cushions, seat belt pillows, diaper clutches, blankets, burpies, bib, and hair clip holders. All the handknit products are make by my grandmother as well. I paint all the hair clip holders. These are products we make on our own, some of the other products I outsource from other small work from home moms.
Describe your typical customer?
Typical customers are moms or people buying for new moms.
What sets your business apart from others in your field?
I guess what sets us apart from other businesses is the love we put into our products, although we certainly look for function, we LOVE everything we put out there.
What is your most popular product?
Our most popular products are the diaper clutch and blankets, these are make great gifts for a new mom. I have clients who come back and tell me, their son or daughter loves the blanket and has become their lovey. That makes me so happy!
How long have you been in business?
We started out business in 2006.
Where do you see your business heading in the future?
As far as the future, it’s difficult to say, I’d love to be in the big stores, but that scares me too! It’s really important to me that our products are made here in the USA, so the problem I face is finding where to have the products made here in the USA and compete with prices. But I find that more people are looking for made in the USA, we are aiming to keep it like that!
