About the Owner:
Courtney has dreamed of owning her own boutique after years of buying bamboo/organic clothing and products for her daughter, Lucy, who was born with extremely sensitive skin and eczema. Researching what fabrics and products wouldn't irritate her became a full time trial and error. What she discovered was the miracle of high quality bamboo and organic clothing that is buttery soft and free of chemicals. Bamboo clothing, along with organic products, and even BPA free toys and teethers, were the only thing that completely got rid of her eczema! Now the mom of a 4 year old, she strives to help other moms discover her favorite brands that owned by moms, organic, free of dyes and harmful chemicals, and also good for the environment.
Courtney is a South Carolina native who resides in Riverview, FL with her husband and daughter. She is an Elementary School Counselor, photographer, and Non-Profit supporter of Children's Mental Health Foundations.
Beyond the name:
The name "Butter Bug" came from her daughters obsession with bugs, specifically butterflies. She now collects and raises her own butterflies, like the swallowtail boutique icon, which is her favorite! Although the main inspiration, the name denotes another passion of this mom and daughter duo - buttery soft sleepwear and apparel! Check it out for yourself and feel the difference, it is life changing!
Beyond the Boutique:
The vast majority of products offered at Butter Bug Boutique are made by moms all over the world! As women, lets empower each other and shop small to support one another!
In addition to this, our brands were hand-selected for their contributions of using sale proceeds to go to Non-Profits such as: The Trevor Project, the National Wildlife Federation, The Ocean Foundation, Mental Health Alliance, WWF, Eco-Health Alliance, With Love From Africa, Syrian Moms as Refugees, Cow Power, and hundreds of other community projects around the world!
A portion of Butter Bug’s sales goes to a few of our title one schools in Tampa as well as The Youth Mental Heath Project.
