Our Story


Hello! I’m Christina, the owner and designer behind Plum Polka Dot.

I live just outside of Vancouver, BC with my husband and three children who are the light of my life and the inspiration behind my shop. 

Long before I decided to launch my own line of handcrafted accessories, known as Plum Polka Dot, I knew that I had a knack for all things creative and crafty. 

When I wasn’t working for a major Canadian retailer at both the store and corporate level, I was often found creating one-of-a-kind, handmade gifts for friends and family for Christmas, birthdays and other special occasions.

In 2008, my husband and I welcomed our twin boys into the world and quickly became accustomed to life with two boisterous boys. But everything changed when our baby daughter, Julia, joined the family nearly five years later.

I soon fell in love with outfitting our ‘little miss’ in beautiful garments and accessories, and was particular about sourcing locally produced, premium quality designs.

Unsuccessful in my search, and armed with a decade of experience in customer service, purchasing and supply chain and project management — and a passion for crafting — I decided to launch my very own line of custom accessories, and thus Plum Polka Dot was born. 

Our distinctive accessories and party favors are ideal for any age — from kids through to adults — and are lovingly and individually made with a creative touch and a keen eye for the finest details.
