Santa's Helper Holiday Balls Personalized Christmas Bag

Okay, so how cute is this bag? Available only inside our Etsy shop.

We keep staring at this new Christmas bag in our office and just love everything about it. This is another Polka Dot Market original, created for Christmas 2006, for your child to enjoy for years to come!

We fell in love with the Michael Miller Holiday Balls fabric this year (we have the laminated baby bibs on our website to match too).

This is the MOST UNIQUE Christmas fabric kid's bag on the market. Personalized with your child's initial in red fabric and appliqued with red thread. The interior is made of the softest plush "snow" fleece fabric. Our Christmas bag for kids just screams, "Ho! Ho! Ho!"

We are using our bags for Christmas Eve church services, then we are filling with "stocking stuffer" type goodies especially for Christmas morning before we drive over the hills and through the woods to Grandma's house. We are hoping this special bag will keep the kids entertained while we take showers, pack the car and make coffee on Christmas morning. Stuff your Christmas bag with stickers, crayons, breakfast bars, small coloring pad, snacks, cars or trains (our daughter loves trains!). This bag is your secret weapon for church too!

SPECIAL HOLIDAY PRICE: Only $24.00 each! Our personalized initial bags are $30.00 each the rest of the year. Act now for $2.50 shipping too through Christmas too. Only available inside our Etsy shop at http://www.polkadotmarket.etsy.com for a limited time. Order by Dec. 15th for Christmas delivery, please.

Here's to all the Santa Moms and Dads out there!

Merry Christmas, Sally

Bibs & Burps for your Polka Dot Baby

Introducing even MORE ways to shower your precious little baby with polka dot gifts from Polka Dot Market. With our new Michael Miller polka dot fabrics, we've created some really cute and totally unique gifts for your baby. We have the chocolate/pink polka dots and chocolate/aqua polka dots fabric that is so popular for babies this season. Our personalized baby bibs are one-of-a-kind and unique to Polka Dot Market! Let me tell you more about our new baby gifts:
Initial Applique Baby Bibs -- Only $9.00 each for our uniquely personalized white cotton terry with white trim baby bib (includes a SUPER snap closure too). Tell us your baby's first initial and we'll create their lowercase applique letter in your choice of polka dot fabrics. We hand-cut every letter, back it with interfacing and machine applique-stitch it to your bib in coordinating thread. We can add a pin-on ribbon bow for baby girl's at not extra charge. Washable and 100% wearable.

Super-Thick Burp Cloths -- Only $5.00 each for a really practical, washable, fun and cute baby burp cloth. We tested many different designs for our burp cloths before we found one that we loved and wanted to share with YOU! Our boutique burp cloths feature a tri-fold cloth cotton diaper double-stitched and faced with your favorite polka dot fabric (the entire length of the cloth). 100% washable. Every mom needs one of these in her diaper bag because baby's loooooooooove to drool! I have a 3 month old at home who agrees.

Travel Changing Pads -- Our signature baby gift and our most popular. The travel changing pad for today's mom is hip, trendy, and stylish. Only $15.00 each, our generous changing pads will keep baby and all surfaces clean and safe from germs on every outing. We've added these new Michael Miller fabrics to coordinate with your diaper bags too. Every changing pad is backed with the softest white cotton quilted fabric. Plush and soft. Did we say soft? Washable, of course. Rolls up for easy storage and ties with two grosgrain ribbons stitched to your changing pad.
(This is sounding more like a website page than my blog...maybe I'm too tired from being a MOM to wrap my mind around "blogging" tonight. I really wanted to share these new baby product photos with you, and this was the fastest way to show you what we've been working on! Please pardon the boring post, I'll be back with more exciting news soon.)
At Polka Dot Market, your baby gifts always arrive wrapped in new polka dot tissue paper with a free gift tag tied with ribbon on your gift. We ship for only $2.50 Priority Mail every day. No coupon required!
See you soon at Polka Dot Market!

Back to School Shopping for Preschool and Mother's Day Out

Okay, I'm doing it. I have officially enrolled my daughter in a Mother's Day Out program for two days a week this school year. She's two years old and I think she's just a little bit bored with me. And with a new baby on the way (due any day now!), I think she will love having her own friends and activities away from the baby and I. Wait, it sounds like I am still rationalizing this to myself! This blog post was supposed to be about our Personalized Kid's Bags. Let me start over:

We love making new bag designs. And we really love personalizing our smaller kid's bags and canvas totes with your child's initial in an array of availaible polka dot fabrics. It is one of our favorite "jobs"! Our super-affordable personalized canvas tote bags are perfect for preschool or Mother's Day Out programs. Kids need a bag for their "stuff" and Moms need a place to put all of their "stuff".

One mom wrote us and even needs a tote bag that will fit her child's bike helmet for preschool! Now that sounds like a cool school. Can you just see them all riding their bikes on the playground? How cute! So, we are always open to custom designs. We can make a bag any size for you and your child.

Going back to school is a great time for kids and a stressful time for the parents (I'm learning this!). There's so much to do! You can relax this August though and let Polka Dot Market create a one-of-a-kind personalized kid's bag just for your special kid. We'll ship it to you within 7 to 10 business days via Priority Mail for only $2.50. What a great back-to-school shipping deal! (Okay, we ship for $2.50 all the time, but tell your husband that it's a special deal!)

And for all the new moms out there sending their kids to school for the first time this August, we understand what you're feeling. Hey, my daughter is only two and I'm a babbling idiot over a silly 2-days-a-week program. Rest assured that at the very least, she will have a cute personalized kid's tote bag to carry with her on her first day. I may forget to pack her "nutricious lunch" or a change of clothes, but that's what first days are for, right?

See you soon at Polka-Dot-Market.com!

Preppy Hot Pink & Green Little Girl Purses

Take a look at our new Little Girl Purses in hot pink canvas with green or pink grosgrain ribbon bows and a custom applique in your child's first initial. We love them! Soon all of the little girls in our neighborhood will be carrying this personalized tote bag all over town. Get your pink and green Little Girl's Purse today at Polka Dot Market! Limited Summer Design!

Polka Dot Market Arrives in Nashville

From the Motor City to Music City!
We're back after a big transition and move to Nashville, Tennessee! We have missed writing to our customers and friends, so here's our big chance. Polka Dot Market has relocated from Metro Detroit to the Greater Nashville area. We are loving the people, the weather, the city, and our new house. Soon we will be loving a new member of our family: a new baby is expected to arrive around August 8th!
During the relocation process, we've been dreaming of polka dots and new polka dot purse designs. We will be sharing all of them with YOU via our website, http://www.polka-dot-market.com. You can find our new mailing address at Polka Dot Market's "Contact Us" page too.

Yum! Neopolitan Ice Cream Polka Dot Fabric Purse

How cute is this bag? Why does it make me want to eat a big bowl of neopolitan ice cream?

Maybe it's the ice cream truck's bells and songs played over and over, around and around our neighborhood, or maybe it's the "delicious" combination of strawberry pink with chocolate polka dots and a vanilla white ribbon?

It doesn't matter! This bag is yummy and made for summer! One of our favorite customers designed this custom-made medium-size tote especially for her mom for Mother's Day. We liked the design so much, we are now selling it at Polka Dot Market (available in any size). The fabric is flying out of our doors as fast as those cute little pink tasting spoons at Baskin-Robbins.

Don't miss this purse! You'll love every "spoonful" of this guilty pleasure. Treat yourself today!

See you soon at Polka Dot Market!
