Vendor Q&A with Babus Toys
What is your craft all about?
Babus is all about natural, vibrant and safe(!) baby and kids toys. Wool yarn is my primary ingredient, but I also use organic cotton and reclaimed fabrics. I love making things that bring immediate smiles.
How did you get started in your craft?
A car accident! My mother taught me how to knit over the phone, from Takoma Park, MD to San Francisco, while I was recovering. I was instantly addicted.
What inspires you to make what you make?
My son, Nicholas, as he grows. Also, my love of nature, animals and color.
Where can folks find your work outside the Handmade Mart?
http://babus.etsy.com is my Etsy shop. I also sell online through Palumba Toys, and in a few brick and mortar shops such as Wholly Craft in Columbus, OH.
Visit me at booth #13!
