Adorable, yet still affordable footwear and accessories.

I’ve been a follower of the Itzy Bitzy brand for over 4 years. As a business owner, customer and mother of two, I was deeply touched by the founder’s story about her beautiful daughter Sydney, who was born with a condition known as Treacher Collins. (See ‘About Us’ page for her story) All children are precious - regardless of what our society deems ‘normal.’ As often is the case, children with ‘differences’ not only must cope with physical challenges, they must also endure the hardships of being accepted into our society. It was Itzy Bitzy’s founder, Michelle Ruesch’s mission that through education and awareness, our society will become more accepting of these precious children - making their already difficult lives just a little bit easier. I recently had the privilege of meeting Sydney. I was apprehensive, mostly because I wanted her to feel comfortable with me and honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect. In the end, there wasn’t anything to expect, other than meeting any ‘normal’ 9 year-old girl. Her face may look a little different than yours or mine, but all I saw was a sweet-spirited, carefree, happy child with a beautiful smile - an Angel. At that moment, it became obvious to me that the unwavering love and support of her family has taught this amazing little girl that she is indeed ‘perfect’ just the way she is.

OUR MISSION
As the new owner of Itzy Bitzy, I am truly honored to be given the opportunity to carry on our Founder’s mission of helping to enrich the lives of these very special children - including her beautiful daughter Sydney. Our goal is to continue our commitment to provide customers Adorable, Affordable Shoes and Accessories while maintaining the styling, quality and customer service that Itzy Bitzy is known for.

Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to meeting each and every one of you soon!
