Today we are featuring an interview of Vogue Vendor, Alison Antone, owner of STARLIT NEST.
Imagine your *dream* bunting or quilt for your next birthday party, baby’s nursery, portrait photo shoot, or wedding… Starlit Nest brings your dream to life! I make quilts from doll bed to Queen size and buntings from cake size to 80′ long! Accessories include quilted pillow covers, curtains, headbands, baby’s neckties, crochet baby hats, and more!
What makes your product/service unique?
My enormous inventory of designer fabrics and my vintage-modern style are what make Starlit Nest the place to shop for bunting, quilts, and bunting/quilt set ups. I sell ready to ship items as well as custom decor. Brides and photographers email me an inspiration image or pinterest page, and I create a one of a kind look just for them. i only use the highest quality materials and give careful attention to the details of every item I make.
Tell us how your business/product came about?
My love for fabric and babies are what inspired me to start my business. I had been sewing and making quilts for 15 years, since high school. I’ve always made nursery decor for my friends’ babies and i have done well selling my handmade goods on Etsy since in 2006. In 2010, a few well-known photographers started using my products as photo props, and suddenly the exposure (thanks to the internet!) took my business to the next level. Now I can’t keep items in stock and constantly get custom orders for bunting and quilts. I am so grateful for the success of my business, especially in a tight economy. My devoted customers are the source of my inspiration and bliss.
What is your most popular product/service?
Brides and photographers love my 40 foot long buntings. They make such a big statement and are festive and colorful. They beautify ANY space! My twin sized custom quilts are also very popular.
