Shop Stories: Shop Kaiote


Meg's story: My husband and I met five years ago through mutual friends while he was stationed in GA, where I'm from, only for him to have to leave a short few weeks later to a new station in CO.

After several months and several visits, we decided I'd move to be with him in CO. We married on the day he deployed five years ago today. After a long year apart while he served in Afghanistan, he came home.

We got to experience the joy of married life, bought a home and spent a few more years in CO. He eventually served his active duty time and we decided to get out of the Army.

We found out I was pregnant while planning the move to Austin, TX where we live now. We had our son 20 months ago and are living the dream with him! He's our best friend and we all do everything together! 

I am a stay at home mom, so I love spending extra time selling our no longer needed items online and Kidizen is a great place for that!

Favorite back to school clothes: We love anything that is made organic/sustainable in the USA! 

Favorite cause: anything related to saving our endangered species, also protecting all animals and the Earth

Kids brands you like: Kaiote Designs (our brand), Mini and Maximus, Indikidual, Quinn + Fox, Boys and Girls Shop, Little Cocoa Bean, TOMS and so many more! It's hard to name them all.

Life motto: "Never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today." - Benjamin Franklin

Funny things your kid has said or done: he's nearly 20 months, so everything he does is funny and amazing to us! Watching him show us his new signs (sign language) is pretty cute!

Best parenting advice received: enjoy every minute!

How do shops get featured?  Kidizen features shops every Tuesday and Friday for 1 week at a time. Shops are chosen based on a number of factors: Nice shop photos, those with listings of distinct styles, genders or sizes, positive selling experiences, at least 10 recently listed items (before you are featured) and good stuff. We know there are many, many great shops out there that we may overlook so please feel free to send an email to if you'd like to suggest any shops to feature!
