Shop Small Part 3: Kids & Family

I love supporting small businesses, especially those owned by those I know. 

This year, I am separating them into four categories to share with you all more easily. 

Part 1: Health and Wellness
Part 2: Clothing, Jewelry, and Accessories. 
Part 3: Kids and Family 
Part 4: Homemade and Edible 

I will share their business and link it to their website, a few tidbits and insight into them, and some top picks for holiday gifts. 

Welcome to Part 3: Kids & Family 

Overview: Jack Tar Togs was once the nation’s leading makers of sailor suits, and fine, classic sportswear for children and women, both dress and play. Founded in 1919, Jack Tar Togs helped to bring a revolution in children’s wear, making clothes that were durable enough for outside play, yet classic enough for visits to grandparents.
Alice Pollard acquired the historic American trademark in Sarasota, Florida in 2018, after seeing an old advertisement. Since then hundreds have recognized the revived brand in vintage Jack Tar Togs sailor suits in attics, and in treasured family portraits. She has concentrated on bringing back the brand online, with a fresh approach with everything from onesies to cable sweaters, in addition to the perennially popular sailor suit.

An overview of YOU and why you do what you do: 
I am a “boy mom” with three young sons and I am the creator of Brimmer Boys.  During naptime, preschool time and nighttime I design special occasion clothing to help moms dress their sons with a classic and effortless style. 
An overview of YOUR business and why you love it/picked it:  
Once I became a boy mom I struggled to find charming yet effortless clothing for holidays, birthdays and other special occasions.  Every time I tried to dress my boys we ended in a wrestling match. We were all grumpy and uncomfortable and this struggle motivated me to develop a solution. Through years of trial and error I designed a shirt with faux collar and cuffs.  Now, the boys are comfortable, everyone looks great and you nail the family photo. 

Your top 3 picks for holiday gift from your business:

Name: Chris Ragozzino 
I am a mom of 2 boys ages 7 and 6, and 2 furry children living in Cheshire, CT.  I'm proud to be celebrating 14 years in business at The Crate Escape.  Located in Wallingford, CT we are Central Connecticut's premier Dog Daycare and Overnight Boarding facility.  We offer Daycare, boarding, grooming and training.  The Crate Escape was my first baby and will always be my proudest accomplishment.  After years of boarding my own pets at sad and lonely kennels, I dreamt of a place where dogs WANTED to go, and owners felt good leaving knowing their precious pet was having fun. I treat each and every dog that walks through the doors as if it was my own and I take pride in providing quality care. After 14 years I'm still excited to go to work every single day.
