If you’re going to start a business in your 30’s, all by yourself, with three children under the age of 5, it best be something you really love!
For Antonia, it definitely was all about love. For 11 years, from a kitchen to a workshop, then from a small business to a franchisor, companies like Tootsie Toes only grow for one reason – we stay the same at heart.
In the beginning, Antonia could hardly bear to part with the beautiful sets of casts she made for her customers. She’d spend endless hours making everything perfect, always wanting to improve, always wanting to make everything a little bit lovelier. Guess what – she’s still the same today!
But it has to be that way when you think about it, because look at what we do. You put your own love of family and the future of your memories in our hands. Only a skilled craftswoman who has experienced exactly the same love and wonder for her own little treasures, could really understand.
It’s the same with every item in our range, because the approach to making everything we make is so incredibly personal. Personal to us because we love the craft, and it shows. Personal to you because what could be more special than your baby, your family and your memories together for a lifetime? Antonia will take care of it.
