Meet Our Vendor: CAVU Creations
We are super excited to have CAVU Creations join in the winter show! We love a one-woman operation that stems from a new adventure, and in this case it is motherhood. Gotta love a line of kids stuff that is so PNW proud!
Who are you and what do you do?
I’m Helen, and I absolutely love to design, create, and sew adorable baby clothes and accessories. After 11 thrilling years flying jets in the US Navy, my family and I have come to settle down in Anacortes–a beautiful island town in NW Washington. I often find inspiration for my prints while exploring and adventuring about this beautiful corner of our planet with my three little ones. My original prints are full of airplanes, clouds, mountains, and all things “PNW.” I use only premium, 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton in my products.
What is your favorite new product for 2017?
My new Perfectly Pacific Northwest line features an original design full of everything that makes our amazing corner of the earth so special! At the UCU Winter Show I’ll have the print in a number of color ways incorporated into swaddling blankets, baby leggings, bodysuits, beanies, tees, wall prints, and more!
What do you love most about craft show vending?
I just love chatting and connecting with such warm folks from all over and learning a bit about the sweet little ones they’re shopping for.
What’s something you’ve learned through running your business in the past 12 months?
Just go for it! Stop worrying whether it’s the right time. I’ve been able to grow my business in directions I never imagined just a year ago by getting out there and trying new things 🙂 Not every venture is successful, but I guarantee the ones you don’t try never are!
What do your customers love most about your product(s)?
Time and again I hear from my customers how impressed they are with the quality of my work and the fabrics I use. Lets face it, baby things get messy, and must be washed. A lot. So I take the time to backstitch and secure every little seam and choose only the best organic cotton fabrics. They look just as great 20 washes later as they do new
