Josiekat's Trunk
Vintage inspired apparel for today's child

A little about Josiekat's Trunk...
As owner and head designer for Josiekat's Trunk, I want to make your shopping experience a true delight. Having studied costume design for theater and film, I found myself drawn to children's boutique clothing. It's full of endless possibilities and renders the scope of creativity that I have a passion to fill. As a mother of three children, I draw upon their innocence and sense of wonder. Every garment I create has a bit of them and a bit of me. Both of my sons have been diagnosed with autism and although it is trying, I find the way they look at life to be magical and so logical. It helps me design and create in a non-traditional fashion. My daughter is a true princess and she brings out the girly side of me...pinks and ruffles and sweetness...and a little bit of sass. I strive to bring you quality garments, professionally sewn and serged. Feel free to email us with any comments or suggestions. We would love to share your comments and pictures on our site!
