While on maternity leave from the corporate world, Cassie Eschenbach began creating stylish onesies and outfits for her daughter. Local moms became interested in Cassie’s designs, so she slowly started selling online and at Shabby Chic. A year later, her business, The Festive Baby, is in full-swing and she’s making items for babies, children, and adults.
With a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting and a Master’s in Business Administration, Cassie was ready to take a leap of faith and begin her own small business. The Festive Baby has allowed her to stay at home with her daughter and create fun and unique designs that make her and others happy.
“I never envisioned my little ol’ shop to be a true business, but I love being able to provide items people truly love, while enjoying my time at home with my little one.”
Using heat press vinyl and adhesive vinyl, Cassie creates items for special occasions, such as birthdays, pregnancy announcements, bachelorette parties, wedding parties, and more. She also enjoys making tutus, and birthday hats or crowns. Cassie initially geared the business towards babies, but has transitioned into making a lot more shirts and tanks for ladies.
Cassie loves making custom items for people and bringing their ideas to life. She prides herself on customer relationships. “I love to create products exactly how people want them. I have a number of standard items I make, but I love to personalize or put a little twist on them to be exactly what that customer wants.” Turnaround time is typically one to two weeks, but often Cassie can complete custom orders within a few days.
Currently, Cassie has baby onesies, shirts, kids tees, adult tanks, and adult tees on display at Shabby Chic in Downtown Waxhaw. In addition, she sells her items on Etsy at www.etsy.com/shop/TheFestiveBabyandCo. The best way to contact Cassie is to email her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also find her on Instagram and Facebook.
