Meet the Vendor: Elle and Me
Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Adriene and I am the creator of Elle Lee and Me. I make kids clothes and accessories that are cool and modern looking while still being functional and comfortable for little ones. I am mama to Elle, my daughter, who is the inspiration behind everything I do!
What’s the latest thing you’ve been working on?
The latest thing I have been working on is developing a toy/storage bin that would be functional but also look cool in common areas in people’s homes. I am really excited about how they are turning out and both kids and parents are loving them!
What is your favorite new product for 2016?
My favorite new product for 2016 is our rompers. They are so easy and comfortable for kids to wear in the summer and are super cute too!
How did you get started in your business?
I got started because I had a really hard time finding clothes I liked for my daughter. A lot of the clothes I bought or received as gifts for her were either (1) uncomfortable or (2) had some kind of ridiculous bow on them that I would end up having to cut off. I love the idea of mixing my clean, modern aesthetic with the carefree spirit and magic of being a kid. So I started making stuff that I loved and slowly people started asking if I could make stuff for their kids and Elle Lee and Me was born.
What’s the best experience you’ve ever had with one of your customers?
I don’t have one specific experience that stands out but the best experiences I have had with my customers is when they have sent me pictures of their babies wearing/using something I have created. I love to see all the cute babies!
