tell us about your products. where they are made. who makes them. favorite product features.

Our products are sourced from local and U.S. domestic artisans and handcrafters. Most of our products are handmade, natural and organic. Our packaging is 100% recyclable.

tell us about your connection to Chicago. your neighborhood.

We are based out of a north suburb of Chicago called Northbrook.

what do you love about your business, your industry.

I love that Bundles & Bits is able to help create special moments for people. Our gifts are tools to strengthen and build healthy prosperous relationships. Our gifts also make people feel good, valued and appreciated. We spread joy and goodness one gift at a time.

tell us about your design inspiration - space, smells, colors, textures.

We aim to create an experience with our gifts and are inspired by products that engage most (if not all) five senses (sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch). We are also inspired by anything aesthetically pleasing to the eye. We also love the use of colors in our packaging to create a particular vibe with our gifts.

what advice do you have for other creative entrepreneurs?

Never give up! Keep focusing on your craft and partner with God to make it happen! It is a process. Better is better!

share a favorite quote, a mantra.

Live life on purpose!

surprise us with your secret talent, fact, etc.

I have a dream to be a filmmaker one day!

what's the most common question you get about your business?

“Do you customize?”

tell us about your process for making + creating.

I use inspiration boards to help me create ideas. I'll purchase products and I'll play and arrange them until I like what i see.

name 3 local makers/brands that inspire you and why.

Honey Hutch - beekeeping has been a family tradition for over 60 years, Bright Endeavors - uses candle-making to transform the lives of young moms, Sugarfina - a love story of a husband / wife duo creating candy for adults

what is the best advice you've ever been given and how has it shaped you and your business?

Better is better! It has helped me look at my business in a different light. I am a perfectionist so I've experienced the natural challenges that come with that mindset. Better is better has helped me adopt a "improve, but don't perfect" mindset

is there a special discount for Covet Market shoppers?

YES! We will offer a 15% discount to Covet shoppers
