Meet the Team
Kelsey Crankshaw, Owner and Founder
"One day I woke up and realized that I wasn't doing what I wanted to. I loved making my daughter clothes and soon my hobby turned into a job. I started my company in August of 2014 as Your Unique Baby Boutique, hand sewing all custom order little diva's clothing. Growing up in foster care I wasn't able to wear the latest trends and have the cutest clothes because they were so expensive and out of reach so in January 2015 I decided to convert my business from a children's to a young contemporary line. I want my boutique to stand out and be a symbol of uniqueness and creativity. To name my boutique after my daughter went without question she is the light of my life and the most inspiring individual I have ever met even at 18 months old. I want my boutique to be fashion affordable so that no matter what your budget you can look fashion forward. I do everything for the business myself. I have spent countless nights up for hours and even more nights where I don't sleep at all to build the perfect the website, map out photo shoots and do order intakes and inventory. During the days I still work as a hairstylist, I hope one day I can focus solely on Ellee. Above all though, I am a mom. Running the business and being a mom to a pre-tot is very challenging, but she just pushes me to do more and work harder. I hope that with this business I can give her everything I never had and more."
