tori's bitty bows
Heather Polcaster, lives on the northwest side of Chicago and is the creator behind tori's bitty bows. She keeps very busy running her small business and managing her daughter's gymnastic events. Heather joined us last year and has been a great addition to the store with her line of Chicago flag t-shirts!
The Story behind tori's bitty bows
My daughter, Victoria Grace or Tori, was born December 9th 2006. Soon afterwards I began making bows on baby bands for her little bald head. Everywhere we went everyone loved her bows. I began making them for friends and soon formed tori’s bitty bows. Tori is growing up fast and business is booming. Strangers stop us in stores for a peek at her bows. I have since expanded to make big girl head bands, clips, flip flops, sun hats, purses, bow holders, cheer bows, t-shirts, onesies, tutu’s, costumes, fairy wands, wings, crocheted beanie hats and bucket hats and skull caps for boys.
I love doing festivals and shows but am currently looking into selling more wholesale.
