When Jennifer Toenjes, owner of Sweet Baby Bowtique, gave birth to her baby girl, she was so ecstatic for the bows and ruffles that were about to enter her life. But all the bows and hair accessories Toenjes found at local retailers were not up to her standards, so she taught herself how to make her own. “My daughter Abbie is the entire inspiration behind my business!” says Toenjes. Sweet Baby Bowtique is mainly an online retailer specializing in baby headbands and offering baby hair bows, big girl larger size hair bows, tutus, leg warmers, bloomer/ diaper covers, hair bow instructions and a soon-to-arrive Mom’s Corner.

With the intense competition in the marketplace, many business owners have turned to manufacturing in other countries in order to save money. However, overseas manufacturing has led to recalls of products that were found unsafe, and has hurt the United States economy with the resulting job loss.

Customers that buy American made products know that standards and codes are in place to help ensure products are safe.
