Tell us about yourself…The Gray Rabbit is a mother/daughter team established in 2014. We offer handmade baby and children's clothing and accessories. All our items are vintage inspired, and perfect for outings or play. Our handmade knit baby gowns are always a hit! Coordinating hats, teethers, headwraps, blankets, and burp cloth sets are always on hand. For older kids, we have unique, trendy tops and leggings.
How and when did your business get started? We began Gray Rabbit while Megan was pregnant with her daughter Eliza, in 2014. It was difficult to find unique, one of a kind baby items while on modified bed rest, so we began making our own!
What is your favorite product in your shop? Tell us how you came up with it. Our favorite product is our handmade baby gown! It is one of our most popular products. It is comfy for baby and convenient for mom, but available in lots of fun, unique patterns to keep baby looking stylish. Most are made of the softest, organic knit.
Where do you find your inspiration and creativity? We love the colors and patterns of the 30s-50s, vintage quilts, and bedding. We also find inspiration in Megan's children, and what is comfortable for play, but stylish and fun.
What are your favorite things about being a vendor in a handmade market? Unique finds and the people! We have met the most amazing customers and other makers through our business. We love hearing stories from others and seeing their stories play out through their work.
Give us 5 fun facts about you and/or your business…The "gray" in Gray Rabbit comes from Megan's son, Grayson. We chose "rabbit" because it was something Susan they're something Susan had always collected, at it was a little bit of a family joke. Megan's daughter Eliza is our biggest inspiration. She attends most shows with us. Most people recognize our "little model" Eliza Belle, before they recognize us. We are big IU basketball fans! Our love for IU has inspired our State Love tees and onesies, that are very popular.
