Hey there! It's been awhile since I've done a shop spotlight! Today I want to introduce a really cute Etsy shop Gooba Gear. This shop has some really cute items for girls and moms! Here is Jaime.
My name is Jaime Walsh and I am the shop owner and creator of Gooba Gear! During the day I teach elementary music in Roanoke, Virginia. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from James
Madison University and a Master’s of the Arts degree with a concentration in Music Theory from Radford University. My first love has always been music, but I have always had a passion for anything creative. I have been making crafts for as long as I can remember, but my mom taught me to sew my first year teaching so I could make costumes for our school’s musical productions. It was at that point I fell in love with sewing.
I’m married to my wonderful husband Bob and we live in a beautiful home we built ourselves in Roanoke.We always joke about the fact that Bob is from Chicago and I am from New Jersey, but we had to come to Virginia to meet. We have a little girl who is three years old who has become the love of both our lives. She is so funny, sweet, snuggly, sassy, and full of life. She is truly a joy! I was inspired to open my etsy store when I started making clothes for my little “Gooba.” One thing led to another and I had a whole shops worth of items! Sewing for me has become a great outlet for me to relieve stress, be creative, and have a persona other than “mommy” even if it is just for a few minutes here or there.
My shop name was inspired by my little girl. Her Daddy just started calling her Gooba when she wasa chunky little baby and the name just stuck. It seemed only appropriate to name my shop after her!
I sell clothing and accessories for toddler girls as well as purses for Mom too. I make everything for girls from skirts and dresses to hair accessories and purses. I make dance wear like tutus, tutu bags,legwarmers, and princess inspired dress up aprons. I make Mommy and Me purses and crayon rolls as well. A little bit of everything girly I guess! I have been open a little less than a year. I opened up shop in August of 2012.
Check out her shop! Here are a few items that she sells.
