       our  STORY   


   Welcome to Olive & Cradle

We are a small family owned shop

in Charlotte NC. 

Our journey started in 2016 when we found that we have a surprise baby #5 on the way! Working outside of home was becoming difficult and being a stay at home mom was the step forward that we were afraid to make. During this pregnancy, some of our handmade baby crochet pacifier clips became a hit as well as our Amish made bonnets. This was the beginning of our baby shop. I Thank God for his sweet surprises in our life and the much needed push that he gives us to keep us going forward and believing that he will provide.

God never disappoints.





   We are constantly looking for ways to improve our products and love hearing from our customers. Chat with us here or send us an email.  Thank you for supporting our family business.  We love our customers specially the little ones.

The beginning of our Journey 2016
On Christmas Eve, we gathered together and video taped the kids excitedly jumping around as we opened the ultrasound photo to reveal at last, that the little peanut we are all awaiting is a .... baby brother!  

Our Family 2020

The little crew in 2018
trouble trio
Anessa, Julius, Alexander
These are our youngest, our fastest, our triple fuel burners. We never imagined our "parents of 2" life would soon be so FULL of life!  After having our 2 girls, we tried unsuccessfully for 5 years in hopes for just one more child.  About the time we started to lose faith is when we became pregnant with little Alex.  Our last 2 Chiclets were a complete surprise and came so quickly after our son that we sometimes wonder how and where did the time go between hoping for a successful 3rd pregnancy and having 5 bambinos running around the house!  We are extremely blessed to have the opportunity to parent such a unique squad of completely different personalities and full of life children.    

....and us...


Standing next to me is my amazing, devoted and selfless husband Alex. He is the hardworking backbone that enables me to even have the courage to think that I can be a stay at home mom. Our business would be unimaginable without his faith in me and his daily support with our kiddos and the never ending business's to do lists.
