A New Beginning For Lottie Da

March 16, 2012

An announcement from our family to yours:

Due to the tremendous increase in demand for the Lottie Da brand nationwide, I am excited to announce that we are moving our business in a different direction.    After much thought and consideration we have decided to close the doors of our Clintonville boutique.   We will be taking the next month to convert our storefront into a design studio and showroom for Lottie Da Designs.

These changes will allow me the time & space to focus on what I do best and what I enjoy the most…..CREATING!   We have exciting plans to expand our product lines which will be sold online as well as in boutiques across the country.  I am looking forward to the opportunities ahead of us as well as a more flexible schedule and a better balance between work and family.  Who knows……maybe the next announcement will be that we are expanding our family!               After all, as Charlotte gets older we’re going to need another model!

No need to worry, we are still here for you and ready to fill your shopping needs!   The retail focus will simply shift to our online shop where you will continue to find the most unique selection of handmade baby gifts, children’s clothing, bedding and accessories.          As a thank you to our loyal customers, for a limited time we will offer FREE SHIPPING on all local orders!

We encourage you to visit the studio and we can’t wait to show off the finished space. We will be open by appointment only during the week, and on Saturday from 10-5 where you can stop in to pick up a quick gift, view our newest designs in person, or look through our collection of fabrics to place a custom order.  We will also be planning pop up shops, design workshops, trunk shows, and other seasonal events!    Make sure you are on our mailing list and follow us on Facebook so you can stay updated!

We appreciate all the local support we have received and value the connections we have made with you all.  We are so lucky to be celebrating the success of Lottie Da and we hope you will celebrate this new beginning  with us!  We invite you to stay in touch and evolve with us!


The shop will be open limited hours throughout the rest of the month while we reorganize & restructure.

Thursday- Saturday 10-5

Official Closing Date is April 2.

Stay tuned for details on a HUGE Celebration Sale!

Lottie Da Holiday Photoshoot

December 16, 2011

I was so thrilled to receive a call from my friend Lauryn Byrdy this November saying  that she wanted to pull together a quick Holiday themed photo shoot!  We usually plan ahead a bit more for these things but this time we pulled it off  in just a few days.   Lauryn gathered the props, I pulled together the outfits , and the little models brought their bright, fun little personalities to her Upper Arlington studio for one of the most fun shoots we’ve had to date!


I adore the simplicity of these photos and I’m sure you’ll agree that  the cuteness factor of these kids is through the roof!     A big thank you to Lauryn Byrdy Photography for her immense talent!   I owe so much of my online success and national press to her wonderful photos of my designs and I cannot wait to work together on Spring!     If you are looking for a photographer for your wedding,  family photos,  or a commercial shoot , she will not disappoint!  Check out for more of her work including photos from her adorable and wildly popular North Pole shoot with live penguins!!

Happy Holidays to all of our friends!
