Crystal Headley, owner of the Internet-based Little Rainbows Tie-dyes, found her calling as a designer after she was given tie-dye baby showers for her two children.



Before her baby showers, guests were asked to bring clothing items made from white cotton. At the parties, the guests designed their own tie-dyed onesies and blankets to give to Headley.

“That was so much fun and (the babies) looked so cute,” Headley said. “Everybody loved those on them. I got a lot of compliments.”

Headley thought there would be enough people here that would enjoy some (tie-dyed items) as well. She began to sell her creations at local festivals during the summer and fall. Then she discovered the internet site and began selling her infant, children’s and adult’s clothing online year-round.

In today’s world of convenient super marts selling lookalike clothing, Headley believes she has a niche for the consumers’ demands – handmade items with a personal touch.

“People are wanting to get back to that,” she said. “Plus the bright colors really attract kids of all ages. Fun for me is to see the joy on faces of little kids’ when they wear these items.”

Residents looking for a holiday bargain but not wanting to face the hassle of the mall may want to check out Headley’s site: She can also be reached at 579-9777.
