Shop Spotlight - Gooba Gear

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 was
a 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.
