Tina Schatzberg had left her career as an advertising sales executive to be a stay-at-home mom, however she still had a passion for marketing and wanted a more flexible means of pursuing that passion. When Schatzberg’s mother lost her job as a sewer for an automotive supplier in Detroit, the two decided to go into business together.
Schatzberg had been frustrated at not being able to find “unique, high quality accessories” for her daughter Kayla, so the two created Ragamuffins Direct. Their online shop offers handmade accessories for women and children such as nursing covers, baby blankets, baby booties, bibs, burp cloths, hobo bags, head scarves and an adorable line of beanie hats like the one Kayla is modeling here ($20 retail).
