Undiscovered Gold: for the little guy

Small business represent!

This past weekend was the first Small Business Saturday. American Express and 3/50 among others encouraged people to spend some of their holiday money in local shops and other small businesses in an effort to help mom and pop shops survive these years of economic pain.

In celebration of everything small, I introduce to you Le Petit Tee. A small shop, making small t-shirts for small people. Lefay Povey hand paints each baby sized tee with her unique art. Many of the images are created by her own son. There is a childish whimsy to the images and the names that coincide with them.

While searching for the perfect baby gift, Lefay was inspired to create this collection. She only make 2 sizes, newborn and 3 months. All her shirts are made of high quality cotton and she uses natural dyes to color them. Since each image is hand painted, images may be similar but every shirt is one of a kind. Lefay also offers to take her images and put them on any other shirt available.

Outside of her Etsy shop, you can also follow Lefay on Twitter
